How to add Index to HTML5 Project

Postby TechWriter85 on Fri Nov 15, 2019 7:49 pm

Hello, all.

I am trying to add an Index to my HTML 5 project. I've opened the Flare Indexing Guide for Flare 2019. I have Flare 2019. On page 51, in "Enabling Indexes in Skins," it says to open the skin in question and go to the General tab.

There is no General tab for any of my skins.

Why it is missing and how I display it are mysteries to me. All solutions gratefully received.

What kind of HTML5 project are you working in? There are 3 - HTML5 Tri-pane, HTML5 Top Nav, and HTML5 SideNav.

TopNav and SideNav share a skin editor, so I'm guessing you're creating one of those two. Indexes aren't part of the default functionality of TopNav or SideNav output. (But you can cheat, and create an index page and insert the index proxy, and then put that page in your TOC, and I believe it will actually build for you).

Thank you, Paul. I am really new to both Flare and HTML5. I think that an index is the way you get users away from doing a full-text search and getting lots of useless hits. So I assumed that I should add an Index to my project. Why would some HTML5 designs not include an index tab? Thanks.
