Links between child projects when moving to Server

We have many merged projects with links between child projects and are using the techniques outlined in Peter Grange's excellent article (Merged WebHelp and HTML5 Help).

My question is, do the links between children (which rely on relative project positioning of the children) still work if you publish to RoboHelp Server? I haven't had the time to set up a test server and wanted to find out if anyone had already crossed this bridge...

Best regards,

PS. I'm using RoboHelp 2017 and would also be using RoboHelp Server 10.

As I understand it there are two ways to merge help using RoboHelp Server. My method can work but I don't know how the two methods are deployed on RHS.

I'm asking someone else to pop in.

Hi! Stephen. I know that many authors use Peter's method on RoboHelp Server as a substitute for using the "Automatic Merge" of projects in the RoboHelp Server Admin app. Peter's method is more robust and I don't know why it would not work with the latest versions, though I have not tried it with a Responsive HTML5 output, You might give it a try.using Peter's sample projects on his website.

Thanks
