Is it possible to rename the _CSH file?

Postby gwadmin on Mon Jan 12, 2009 10:01 am

I'm trying to get a client's help system out of RoboHelp and into Flare; the only sticking point may be the naming -- they call their help with projectname.htm and would like not to change those links if possible.

Is it possible to arbitrarily rename the projectname_CSH.htm file? I did a few quick tests and as far as I can tell it makes the javascript unhappy.

They only need to change one resource and make projectname.htm to read projectname_csh.htm. The string to make the help call should be stored in one central place and a help call just pops in the map ID. Changing the URL should take a developer 0.833 minutes. Are you saying they didn't have the application designed as such? In that case they should be punished by reworking every occurrence. :roll:

Flare needs to have the _CSH file, its not possible to rename this file, as it may cause other problems in the project.
