Hi I am trying to publish responsive HTML5 output to sharepoint - we are on sharepoint 365.  I have pasted the sharepoint site address in sharepoint site field in the Connection Details window.  When I try to publish I get an error message saying: error: the remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.  Any suggestions?  It's a folder I created so I do have full access.

If it's not possible to publish directly - how do I publish locally then upload?  I tried selecting the Advanced Option Generate SharePoint Native Output Before Publishing and then uploading the ASPX files to my sharepoint folder manually.  When I clicked the Index.aspx link all the formatting was lost.  Am I doing something wrong?

Regards

Leanne

Does the TOC load and is the search function available? I would suspect the CSS file is not uploaded to the server. Are all folders and subfolders correctly uploaded to SharePoint.

RoboHelp currently only supports SharePoint on-premises. Please enter a feature request for Office 365/SharePoint Online support here: Home

Hi William - I'm trying to work out which files to upload to sharepoint but can't find any information.  Do I have to upload or files and folders generated when published?

Regards

Leanne

Just publish to an output folder in SharePoint. Give that folder address to the developers who can put links to it in the application and you are good to go. Just set up your Settings. I use WebHelp so mine is in the WebHelp settings. Set up the Server Name and URL and then Publish after you generate your help.

Hi William,

I saw your handle on here and recognized it because I have seen your website too. You are clearly very well-versed in Robohelp. I have encountered the same problem as the OP and was just wondering if you happened to know if Robohelp 2017 supports Sharepoint Online/Office 365. I am guessing it does not, but just wanted to be sure.

I'm thinking we might have to publish to a OneDrive synchronized Sharepoint folder on the local computer to assist in getting files onto Sharepoint. This sounds something like what TXTechWriter mentioned in the last message.

Regards,

John.

Hi John,

RoboHelp 2017 doesn't support Office 365 / SharePoint Online. However, if you are using SharePoint online as a shared repository only, then using a synchronized SharePoint folder is a good alternative.

Thanks!

Hi! I've been trying to publish Responsive HTML5 help to an Office 365 / SharePoint site myself (I managed to do it manually in the end, but obviously with no version control or collaborative functionality) and just came across this post.

Could somebody please explain the steps to set up a "OneDrive synchronized Sharepoint folder on the local computer to assist in getting files onto Sharepoint"

I'm a writer, not a fighter. I never signed up for this

Cheers xxx
