Topics linked correctly, but not appearing when testing

Postby Louise Bennett on Thu Jun 29, 2017 4:25 pm

Hi all,

Hoping someone can shed some light on this as I'm out of ideas.

I have around 700 identifiers in my project, with one Alias file and multiple header files.

In the Alias editor I have linked all the identifiers to topics, which seemingly has worked because all the icons next to the identifiers are green.

BUT, when I test using the CSH API Tester none of the topics are actually called. I don't get an error page - just nothing.

I've checked the target and it is pointing to the Alias file, but I can't think of anything else to try. Could it be a problem related to having lots of header files? I did this because we need to produce CSH for individual guides, but also for the doc set overall. So I have one header file per guide and then HeaderFile.h contains all of them to cover the whole docset. I've made it my primary header file, just in case that makes any difference.
