As the title suggests we generate Responsive HTML5. We elected to uncheck the "Show Context in Search Results" option in the Search tab, when we generate our output so breadcrumbs appear. For topics that are not under a book, such as our 'welcome' page or 'using the help' topics, it displays the topic file name instead of breadcrumbs (for example, home_1.htm for the homepage). Is this normal behavior?

If we check the "Use Topic Comment as Search Context" in the Search tab when generating, does this always use the first nnn characters in the topic's
first paragraph (how does it know where the first paragraph is) or is there a way to add a topic comment to be used?

What is the purpose of the Home_1.htm file anyway? When I open the file in the browser it is our content, but is "unformatted."

I think you're talking about the search URL which shows the path to the topic, rather than breadcrumbs. So for the home topic or other topics that live in the root folder of your project, you'll only see the file name.The "Show context in search results" shows the first xxx characters from the top of topic. xxx is defined in the SSL/Output pod "Number of characters in search context".

I think you're talking about the search URL which shows the path to the topic, rather than breadcrumbs. So for the home topic or other topics that live in the root folder of your project, you'll only see the file name.

The "Show context in search results" shows the first xxx characters from the top of topic. xxx is defined in the SSL/Output pod "Number of characters in search context". I thought the search URL displayed whether this was ticked or not (but I can't check right now as I've discovered all the patches didn't get installed on my machine, and the output is broken without the patches. :S )

The "Use topic comment as search context" uses any text you type into the Comment box in the Topic Properties dialog box.
