How to add Related Links associated by keywords?
1 month ago
I have a help project in which I want to add a Related Links section at the bottom of each topic.
- How do I setup a Related Links section to display topics associated by keywords?
- Is it possible to apply these links to multiple topics?
Using the Related Links feature
In HelpSmith, you can use the Related Links feature that allows you to generate a list of links using various options including:
Step 1: Insert the Related Links placeholder into a template
The Related Links placeholder defines the place where you want to generate and display the list of links.
If you need to generate the Related Links section below each topic, you can simply insert the Related Links placeholder into the template.
Inserting the Related Links placeholder
Remark: Please note that the default templates in a new help project already include the Related Links placeholder. However, for an existing help project created with earlier HelpSmith versions, you may need to insert it manually.
Step 2: Add Related Links for topics
On this step, you should define the links for one or multiple topics that will be displayed by the Related Links placeholder that we inserted on the previous step.
(To select multiple topics, you can click on the topics while holding down the Ctrl key).
Remark: On the Related Links pane, you can also use other options if you need to add individual hyperlinks, display links to topics of a specific TOC node, etc.
Customization of the Related Links section
HelpSmith allows you to customize the generated Related Links section according to your needs.
For example, you can change the section's Title, the style of the horizontal line below the title, specify text styles used within the section, enable sorting for the links, etc.
