Webhelp update problems

I've been using Webhelp with oXygen 13.2 and I am currently trying to update to version 14.1 (I have custom stylesheets).

The transformation now creates index.html and index_frames.html. I very much prefer index_frames.html because it looks a lot better and it can be localized properly. However, when the transformation is complete, the browser always opens the index.html file. Is there a way to direct oXygen to open index_frames.html instead (without disabling JavaScript)?

Apart from that inconvenience, I also have a real problem. The parameter args.breadcrumbs is set to yes, but there are no breadcrumbs in the output (they used to be there with version 13.2).

Finally I noticed that a Webhelp Mobile version is mentioned in some of the plugin files. Sounds interesting. What is it?

Thanks for your help

Susanne

The breadcrumbs problem is solved, I accidentally deleted the args.hdr parameter.

Just set index_frames.html on the Output tab of the transformation dialog box, that is set the value ${cfd}/out/webhelp/index_frames.html in the Other location text box.

We plan to add a Mobile output version of the Webhelp transformation in a future version.

That is very interesting information.
We will have to create help for mobile devices soon.
Could you tell me a time frame for that?

Thanks
Susanne

Hi,

A timeframe for the mobile version was not set yet. It will be available probably before the end of the year.
