How can I edit the meta tag that gets inserted when generating the HTML5 responsive layout (see below)? I need to get that unescaped > out of there because it has negative effects on linked programs, but can't find where to edit this setting in RoboHelp. I don't have breadcrumbs on the page and I don't see any option to disable breadcrumbs in the HTML5 layout.
< meta name="topic-breadcrumbs" content="Administration > Customer Management" / >
I found a SSBreadCrumbSeperator element in the HTML5 ssl file, but changing this did nothing to change the output, it still has the unescaped > character in it.
I'm using Robohelp 2015 (18.104.22.1688).
You'll want to access the breadcrumbs at the topic (or master page) level. To edit the format, just double-click on the breadcrumb element. Or you could select the element and just delete it.
To insert a breadcrumb element, right-click in the topic/master page, and select Insert Placeholder > Breadcrumbs.
I don't have breadcrumbs on the page
There are no breadcrumbs anywhere on any of the pages (including the master page). I assume that the HTML5 layout is inserting this tag on the pages in order to show breadcrumbs in the search results (but again, no option is shown in the HTML5 layout to control this behavior).
Sounds like a task that Willam needs to advise on.
So nobody else has seen this behavior or knows how to manage the breadcrumbs that the HTML5 layout seems to include with no user input?
Well, first I'd suggest Rick moving this thread over to the HTML5 Layouts forum & second, I suggest you PM Willam van Weelden to see if he knows what you're talking about.
Thread moved as suggested.
LOL - if I'd been made a moderator here like I am over in the FM world, I'd have moved it myself ;>)
Hmmm, are you talking about an Adobe forum? If so, I don't believe Mod permissions are restricted by the forum category. You should be able to move things here if you can do it there.
@Rick - I'll have to give it a try the next time I see one that needs moving - I know that Madison had to unlock the Structured FM area for me to punt threads to over in FM-world, but maybe that doesn't apply here ;>)
I believe the breadcrumb options are for WebHelp. The SSL files have the same structure for all outputs, but most options aren't used by HTML5.
This sounds like a bug to me. It's not something in the layout, it's not in the widget's seed files and its inserted when the topic is updated in the output process. Please file a bug report here: Home
As a workaround, you'll have to use a script or find/replace operation I'm afraid. You can create a script that runs automatically when you create your output. That will fix it whenever you output. Are you comfortable with scripts?
FWIW, I used breadcrumbs successfully in a responsive layout, and they behaved as expected. One note: the dialog box to control the format only comes up when I initially insert the breadcrumbs--there doesn't seem to be an "edit" option.
Using the Breadcrumb placeholder?
WebHelp has an option in the SSL to insert breadcrumbs. For HTML5 you need the placeholder. Unless I'm missing something. In that case, I would love to stand corrected!
Where did you add them? Master Page? (If so, what area?) Topic itself?
In my experience all one has to do is double-click the placeholder or right-click and choose Format Placeholder to get at the dialog again.
Sorry, I stand corrected. Thanks, Rick!
Thanks for the reply. We're working to get the other component fixed since the > is ok in quotes. The particular page I'm looking at has no breadcrumb placeholder and there is no master page in use for this page, so I'm still a little lost as to how/why this meta tag is getting inserted into the page, but it matters a little less now.
