WebHelp - Search within current context

Post by ann.jensen » Mon Jul 15, 2019 4:43 pm

Hi,
With my Oxygen WebHelp content, can I search for keywords only within the current folder context that I have navigated to?
My content is organized into quite a deep folder structure and covers many products so if I have navigated to content for Product X, can I do a keyword search that only searched within content related to Product X?
Any feedback appreciated,
Regards,
Ann

Hi,

Unfortunately this is not possible in the current implementation of WebHelp.
However, we already have an improvement request to make faceted search possible logged in our internal improvements tracking system and we consider implementing this in a future version. I've just added your vote for it and we will update this thread when/if this gets implemented.

Well at least I know the proper name for such a search now i.e. Faceted Search :D
Thanks,
Ann

Hi Ian,

I also replied to the email you sent us on our official support email, but just to update this thread, I will also post my reply here as well.
There is no out-of-the-box support it in the current implementation of WebHelp.
However, we already have an improvement request logged in our internal improvements tracking system, to add support for faceted search, so I've just added your vote for it and we will notify you when/if this will get implemented.
