Has anyone tried to incorporate ZoomSearch in an HTML5 responsive layout? We are trying to implement Zoom and migrate to HTML5 at the same time, but so far all the information I've found basically said "custom buttons are very difficult to add".
It's not just a button, but you have to link the search results to the result page of zoomsearch. That requires an additional SLP (layout page) that zoomsearch can use. And the search boxes have to be linked to this result page. But that means that the logic of the layout has to be updated. When you start a search, items are shown and hidden based on settings. That will have to be updated as well.
Thanks! I can't really say I understand everything you have explained, but at least I have a starting point
There is a tutorial for adding ZoomSearch to WebHelp on my site. I suggest you implement that first in a trial project. Once you understand how that has worked, it should be easier to get it working in responsive help.
The target is to go live with ZoomSearch in HTML5 though, and, while I have worked with WebHelp for a few years now, the Responsive layout is completely new to me. I will forward this topic to the coworker who customized our the Responsive layout and between the two of us I hope we will be able to figure it out
We are already indexing our entire documentation site using Zoom with the ASP.NET method, so that would probably be the choice for the help-specific search as well. At the moment, I am stuck at figuring out how to add a button (in WebHelp) that calls an .aspx instead of an .htm, but I'm going to try using a .htm with a redirect to the .aspx... as soon as I have some time to play around with this.
(Sorry for going off topic and thanks for the help again!)
