Folks,

Has anyone ever had any success integrating a HTML Help into a WordPress site (i.e. search)?

We are building a customer support community and WordPress looks like the current favorite platform.

We would like users to be able so search and be presented with relevant:

  • Help posts
  • Forum topics
  • Pages
  • Blog posts
  • etc.

All suggestions most welcome!

Thanks,

Donal

Probably not easily; RH uses a lot of JavaScript coding and XHTML pages. You may want to check out a webinar that’s taking place Nov 20, 2013 on line at the STC New England chapter that’s looking at a case study of going from FrameMaker content to the Confluence wiki platform. I suspect the conversion will involve going through HTML pages also. Link is at - http://www.stcnewengland.org/Default.aspx?pageId=1350148&eventId=754423&EventViewMode=EventDetails if you’re interested.

Hi there

If you have access to the WordPress site via FTP or means other than the WordPress front end, it shouldn't be too bad. Just copy the output files to the site and create a link from one of the site pages to the WebHelp or other start page.

I used to be involved with a church web site that worked that way. The main site editor didn't understand WordPress, so there were many pages she edited outside of WordPress and used DreamWeaver to do it. The site was a mish mash combination of odd pages.

Cheers... Rick
