adding custom tabs in the tripane HTML5 Help system

Postby IPRO_JB on Thu May 16, 2019 11:02 am

Hi Everyone,
My team develops online help and outputs it in HTML5 Tripane format. At the moment, we only have a TOC tab in the Left pane (no index or glossary tabs). My PM is asking if we can add a custom tab where we can add links to videos and another tab where we can point to PDFs. We do have a custom skin, but my developer says that this request isn't doable in Flare and that I'd need a custom website for it. Has anyone tried something similar with Flare? Crossing my fingers that this is doable. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks!
Julie

The closest I think I've got for you is adding one tab, not two. You would add the Browse Sequence tab to the skin. Then you would change the custom text of the tab to something else like Resources. Then you could use browse sequences in your project to link to the additional content.

Not ideal, I know, but it is the closest I could come with out-of-the-box Flare capability.

Thanks, Paul. Appreciate the suggestion! I knew that the solution, if using OOB functionality, would be clunky.
Cheers,
Julie
