Do you mean to load the frameset version of the Webhelp output (the format of the index_frames.html
file), but set any node from the Content
tree as the initial page displayed in the right side content panel, instead of the default initial page (which is the first node of the Content
tree)? That is not possible in the frameset version (the index_frames.html
file). That is possible only in the internal frames version (the index.html
file): just pass the following URL to the browser: out/webhelp/index.html#<path-to-page-from-right-side-panel>
, where you replace <path-to-page-from-right-side-panel>
with the relative path to the section file that you want to load in the right-side panel, relative to the out/webhelp/
directory, for example: subdir1/subdir2/mySection1.html
, or mySection2.html
Getting the same effect with the index_frames.html
file would require you to edit the index_frames.html
file and replace in the following code fragment:
Code: Select all
var currentPage = "ch01.html";
the path of ch01.html
with the path of your initial right-side page, for example ch02s01.html
Code: Select all
var currentPage = "ch02s01.html";

The left-side panel called Content
should always be present in the Webhelp output, in both the internal frames version (index.html
) and the frameset one (index_frames.html
). Do you get the same result on one of the Docbook 5 sample documents from the default Oxygen project (the project file samples/sample.xpr
opened in the Project
view)? If yes, can you send us the output directory of your transformation, that is samples/docbook/v5/out/webhelp
? If not, please send us
a sample Docbook XML document for reproducing the problem.

Please use the index.html
version of the Webhelp output for opening the Webhelp in browser directly to a specific topic/subsection. If you must use the index_frames.html
version you will need to edit the index_frames.html
file as I said above.
