Here is my scenario...

In the text on the right side of the screen, I would like to link to the folder "DTM Utilities", rather than pointing the user to any one page under the folder. Is this possible? When I try to create a hyperlink it states I need to select a file, bookmark or topic to link the hyperlink to.

Do you know, that the right window holds HTML? You can write there whatever HTML code you want. Just switch to HTML view..

@wilhelm What HTML code is going to allow someone to access a folder to see its contents? Surely such code would make hacking so much easier?

Hi there

This might be an excellent use for the See Also feature. Basically, you open the See Also pod and define a See Also keyword. Perhaps DTMUtils. Then you would associate all the topics in the folder with the keyword. Then when you want to present a list of items inside the folder, you insert a See Also control that points to the keyword. After generating, the user clicks the See Also button (or link or whatever) and up pops a list of the HTML pages in that folder.

Cheers... Rick
