Hello,

I have published a Cp file as HTML5; it's not in an LMS. Since the output is index.html, rather than individual html pages for each slide, is there a way to manipulate the url to go to a specific slide?

Thanks!

I believe the poster wishes to have a url that, when clicked, will take them to a specific slide in the project rather than always the beginning.Perhaps a large project with many sections and a person completes section 1 and we want them to deep link direct to section 2.The below example is not an answer to this question but an example of how we see this sort of thing in other situations. The URL is modified by adding the  ?page=17  to the end.It is an interesting question - my gut says I don't ...

Your question is confusing. Even for a course not reporting to a LMS the start file is always index.html. I don't know what you want exactly to do. Can you clarify please and also mention the full version number you are using as mentioned under Help, About Captivate?

Perhaps a large project with many sections and a person completes section 1 and we want them to deep link direct to section 2.

The below example is not an answer to this question but an example of how we see this sort of thing in other situations. The URL is modified by adding the  ?page=17  to the end.

It is an interesting question - my gut says I don't think so but I could be wrong - I've never explored this idea but could see the usefulness of it.

I might suggest a large menu as your first slide for the learner to select the topic - or make use of the table of contents. I always prefer a homemade system of navigating and would opt for a custom menu.

@Stagprime Apparently you gave the expected answer and also confirmed to use the index.html file.

Just a warning: be careful if something has happened on previous slides which is needed on the slide where the learner will start or the following slides. Just a couple of examples: you ask the learner's name to be used when addressing him, the value of that variable will not be available anymore. Or you have custom navigation buttons or other objects which are on the first slide of the module, timed for the rest of the project. They will not appear when the learner is not starting on the first slide. Just double-check...
