I have a question. I am looking at this article: https://www.grainge.org/pages/authoring/rh_tour/rh2020/outputs/calling_csh_help.htm.
The Responsive HTML5 output of the Online Help is currently working perfectly for us. Now that we are moving to RH2020 and the new Frameless Output, I understand there will be minor updates in the help call per the above article. I will be sharing the above URL with my server development team to apprise them of the change.
Rudimentary question, I am not very technical sorry, but would just excluding the #t= part from the Responsive HTML5 URL work?
It depends on how the context help call has been set up by your developers.
Assuming you're currently using Responsive HTML5 in RH Classic:
I'm pretty sure I got that all around the right way, but I'm not currently using CSH, so haven't been actively looking at the latest changes. 🙂
Amber's answer is correct, perhaps this explanation will help with understanding the URL part.
You can call responsive help using the URL path/topic_name.htm. What you will get is just that topic without the TOC etc.
To get the TOC etc you need path/index.htm#t=path/topic_name.htm. Think of the URL as a route and what the highlighted part is effectively telling you need to stop off at that point and pick up the TOC etc, then continue on your route. There are "path" before index.htm is the path to the stop off point and the "path" after it is the rest of the route.
With frameless outputs, that information is included in every output topic so just the path and the topic name is sufficient. Thus path/topic_name.htm is all that is required.
With 2019 New UI and 2020, no API is provided.
It was added back in during one of the updates. Thanks @Amebr for the correction.
