Collection Type=Sequence Not producing expected results

Wed Mar 15, 2017 10:20 pm

I am using Oxygen 18.1 Webhelp responsive and I have collection-type=sequence set on a parent topic. I would expect 1) the hierarchy links to displayed as 1,2,3... and then there be parent, previous, and next topic links. I do not see either of these things.

Hello,

1) the hierarchy links to displayed as 1,2,3...

The default styling for the WebHelp Responsive output does not specify numbering for the child links by design. If you want to customize the output appearance you can contribute an additional CSS file to the WebHelp transformation scenario. This procedure is described here: https://www.oxygenxml.com/doc/versions/18.0/ug-editor/topics/webhelp-customization-css.html

You can use the following CSS snippet as a starting point:

Code: Select all

.olchildlinks li {
    list-style-type: decimal;
}


... and then there be parent, previous, and next topic links.

The "next" and "previous" links are generated for the child topics of the topic that has "collection-type=sequence" set on it. The links are displayed as arrows and they can be found in the navigation toolbar, above the topic content.
The parent link is not displayed because you can navigate to the parent topic using the link in the breadcrumb from the same navigation toolbar.
