Hi,

Is there a way to display a customized summary of a search results file in the responsive layout?  In other words, I don't want the first few words of the file to display automatically, I want to display specific information.

I use Zoom with WebHelp, but I'm trying the RH search with the Responsive layout (same files), so I already have the <ZOOMTITLE> tag in all my files.  I'd like that information to display when using RH's search.

hope this makes sense! 🙂

thank you!

Hi there

I believe if you look at the topic properties, then click the Status tab, you are able to type what you want into the Comment field in order to present that information as the Search Context.

I wonder if a macro tool such as Macro Express could convert your Zoomtitle

content to Comments?

Possibly, yes. I would just have to replace "ZOOMTITLE" with "topic-comment"

I have just managed to get Zoomsearch integrated into the Indigo layout and hide the built in search.


Interested?

Hi,

Congratulations!

That would be wonderful, but for the moment I'm still in the testing phase of RH11 and the responsive layout  (but stay-tuned!).   The major complaints we've been having about zoom is the lack of predictive search and search term character limit... and last I checked those features aren't available with zoom javascript, which we use.

I did a simple global find/replace to change ZOOMTITLE to topic-comment.....worked perfectly!

Thank you!

Have you taken up what your users don't like with the Zoomsearch people? They are very helpful and might welcome a feature request.

To answer your question - I have contacted Wrensoft in the past about a few issues/user requests and their response has always been it's a limitation of javascript version, which is what I have to use in our documentation.  And, you are correct - they have always been beyond helpful and responsive to any issues I was having.  I highly recommend them...

Back to RH responsive html5 search:

Is there any way to do the following with search (I haven't found one!)

  • let the end-user toggle substring search on/off
  • use negative searches (search term x but exclude files with y)
  • permit wildcards:  either *  or ?
  • control result ranking - I want certain files to appear higher in the search results list.  Can I do this with html comments??
  • recommended links

Yes, I know Zoom has all but 1 of those features.....

thank you!
