MiniTOC - No hyperlinks beyond H2

RH 2022.0.346

 

When I use a MiniTOC in a topic that is configured to display H2 through H4 headings (default setting), only the H2 headings have links associated with them.

Bug, feature, or configuration error?

Add the bookmark after the heading. It works then.

This page was created using 2022.0 and you will see the second level links are working so I think that rules out there being a bug. I have done nothing more than apply some styling as described on my site. See Snippets (grainge.org) > Generating Outputs > Item 7 for that.

 

It should work by default. Test the same issue in the About RoboHelp sample project. Click Open Project and browse to Documents, then My RoboHelp Projects. Also try a fresh copy of whichever skin you are using.

Thanks, Peter. After seeing your reassurance that it should work, I dug in and found that the thing breaking it was the fact that I had added bookmarks to all of these H3 headers. If I remove the bookmarks/anchor elements, the MiniTOC is as expected.

I don't think that should break it. Please confirm that in another project and if it repeats, it should be reported as a bug.

Does that mean you replicated the problem in a new project using a default skin and tested the About RoboHelp sample project?

 

I rather doubt this is a bug as it is a feature that has been in place for some time and no one else is reporting this issue. 

 

My concern is it could take some time for this to be investigated and you will not be any further forward in seeing it working.

That's exactly what it means. The issue doesn't exist in RH2020.8.

I just created a new project and this is what I see in the output. In source the topic has links as shown and in the output.

That is why I am struggling to see this as a bug. If it were, the problem would exist for everyone.

 

In the new project did you use the default CSS and new topics or did you import anything?

But did you add bookmarks to those headings? That is the thing that is causing the issue. 

This does not work:

<body>
  <h1>Test</h1>
  <div class="minitoc" data-minitoc-targetid="drop-down" data-type="minitoc" style="">
    <p class="minitoc-caption" data-close-text="" data-expanded="true" data-open-text="Contents" data-type="minitoc-caption" href="#" style="">Mini TOC (placeholder)</p>
    <ol class="minitoc-list" data-from-selector="h2" data-to-selector="h4" data-type="minitoc-list" style="">
      <li>Heading</li>
    </ol>
  </div>
  <h2><a id="bookmark"></a>Level 1</h2>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3><a id="bookmark1"></a>Level 1a</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h2>Level 2</h2>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3>Level 2a</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h4>Level 2aa</h4>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3>Level 2b</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
</body>

2022-11-22_9-19-16_test.png

 

But this does:

<body>
  <h1>Test</h1>
  <div class="minitoc" data-minitoc-targetid="drop-down" data-type="minitoc" style="">
    <p class="minitoc-caption" data-close-text="" data-expanded="true" data-open-text="Contents" data-type="minitoc-caption" href="#" style="">Mini TOC (placeholder)</p>
    <ol class="minitoc-list" data-from-selector="h2" data-to-selector="h4" data-type="minitoc-list" style="">
      <li>Heading</li>
    </ol>
  </div>
  <h2>Level 1</h2>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3>Level 1a</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h2>Level 2</h2>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3>Level 2a</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h4>Level 2aa</h4>
  <p>Words</p>
  <h3>Level 2b</h3>
  <p>Words</p>
</body>

 2022-11-22_9-19-16_test2.png

 

The difference being that the top has bookmarks added at the "Level 1" and "Level 1a" headers, while the bottom does not.

Yes, that's an effective workaround
