I have been working with my software development team to do a proof of concept of migrating a context sensitive help project from Oracle Help to HTML5 Responsive Help. Exciting times!
Is anyone making context sensitive calls to HTML5 responsive help that is installed locally without a web server?
We have found that calls with the ? in them require HTTP processing/web server. Without a web server, the context sensitive call is not completed, just the call to the index file and default landing page for the help system.
As a viable workaround, the developer has created a redirect file for each entry point into the help. So, we do have a go forward plan, but these redirect files introduce additional maintenance work for development as the help system changes over time so I would like to see if anyone has call syntax that works without a web server.
I just generated the RoboHelp Reimagined sample project locally and this link is what is displayed when I open the project. If I then copy the link to another browser tab, it is working correctly.
Try that project to help solve the issue. Not sure where your ? is coming from.
There is a topic on Calling Help on my site.
