Frameless output: Can I use different TOC Tile images for the Home page vs. those on secondary page?

I have customized images that I use as TOC Tile images on my Frameless skin. The generated homepage reflects these images appropriately. On the Home page in the generated output, when I click on a TOC Tile, it takes me to a secondary page with the same TOC Tiles as the home page, but with different content. On this secondary page, each TOC Tile image is associated with the 8-10 documents I have listed under the main folder. Is there a way to use different TOC Tile images for the secondary page? Also, is there a way to do away with the second 'home page' and get straight into topics?  Please advise.

What you are seeing is something that happens depending on how the TOC is set up. Here's the TOC in the project. The first tile in the output is for RoboHelp Reimagined. Above you can see it is a topic. Click that tile in the output and it will go straight to the topic, no second home page. Click the tile for Adobe RoboHelp 2019's New User Interface though and you will see a second home page. In the TOC above I went to the book Adobe RoboHelp 2019's New User Interface and linked that bo...

I was recently and I am not seeing if you can change the image on the second home page, is that possible?

I understand the principle, here. This should help me in my scenario.

 

But how does one "link" a book to a topic?

 

Thank you!

I did some more poking around and found out what is happening.

 

I applied a different image to a tile that was going to a second home page. What I see there is the first image on the original home page.

 

Please check your project and verify that is what is happening.

There is also a Drilldown option in the skin editor.

Deselect that and you will not get a second home page.

Thank you for explaining how to have/not have a 1st and 2nd home page.  This solution is really simple.  Works great!

@cindyh933912 Looking back through this thread it is worth summarising for the benefit of anyone else coming here that:

  • Whether or not you have a home page is controlled by the whether you select the Use Home Page checkbox.
  • If you have a home page, then whether you have lower level home pages is controlled by the Drilldown checkbox.

 

I'm not sure but I believe there was another thread along the lines of your question. To the best of my recollection the answer was that both will use the same home page. However, there is one setting that may help with having just different tiles. See Tile Image bottom right when you select a folder what you specify there becomes the tile image for Folder Two in this example.

Yes, Peter, this is exactly what I was looking for! I was able to keep both the primary and secondary home pages and update the images on the secondardy home page. Worked like a charm. Very much appreciated!
