content merge using chunk on maprefs

Post by jdupont » Mon Feb 08, 2021 8:09 pm

Hello

We publish a large set of content with about 25000 topics.
We have
  • one main map
  • 100 level-2 ditamaps
  • level-2 ditamaps point to sublevel ditamaps (level-3)
  • level-3 ditamaps finally point to topics
We use the webhelp from oxygen and we would like to combine several topics into a single html file in the webhelp output in order to improve the user experience and also minimize the package size.
We decided to put some @chunk="to-content" on the mapref from the main ditamap but the end result in not content.
We get one "chunkxxx.html" file per level-2 ditamaps but we also get one html file per dita source file...

Did we miss something.?
Can you confirm that we can have @chunk="to-content" on mapref?
Any suggestion?

Thanks,
Jérôme

Hi Jérôme,

I'm testing this with the DITA OT 3.6 engine which will be bundled in Oxygen 23.1 and a very small sample map and submap published to WebHelp responsive. I cannot reproduce the problem of the HTML topics being present even for the chunks. Maybe your example is more complex. Can you come up with a small DITA project exemplifying the problem? It would be easier to test and debug.

Regards,
Radu

Hello Radu,

I sent you a test package yesterday which replicates our issue so that you can make your own test.

BR,
Jérôme
