HTML export

Hi:

Although I have relied on UR for many years, I never had to export to html until now. The items are hierarchical and contain rich text and several attachments. The output is confusing to me and unexpected. I would expect to see the tree in the left pane and the item's contents in the right. However, I am seeing virtually identical trees (left and right panes). Regardless of what I select, the contents never appears. Nor do the attachment links function for me.

I am sure it is me and as I said I have never used this feature. Am I misunderstanding what it supposed to do? Or, am I doing something wrong?

Thank you for your guidance.

Jon

I have attached the results of exporting HTML from the Intro.urd sample. I am seeing the tree on the left and content on the right when opening index.html in a browser.

The database I am trying to export (my main database) does not export as expected. I will send a screenshot to the support email address so you can see what I mean. My other, smaller and simpler, databases seem to export correctly. I thought the problem might be related to the multiple tabs I had (locked and hoisted) I have open. I disabled all of them with the same results. I also tried a repair and compress with the same result.

Thank you for your assistance.

Jon

Yes, but it doesn't help much. I replied to your message:

Would you be able to send the info from

Since I had similar problems with XML export, which then, with Kyle's kind help, worked brilliantly in the end, you might be interested to try XML export, too (in case after reading that thread), then compare the results and infer possible settings errors from that comparison. (And in the end, the rich text is just tagged plain-text in both exports, so it should all be quite similar.)

Thank you for this. I will take a look, although I need html for online training.

The difference is that your tree has a lot of folder items. Since a folder item has no content, it does display the tree on the right. To prevent this, you can enter a single space into the detail area of the folder item, so that it has some (blank) content.

If you click on a non-folder item on the left, its detail/content will be displayed on the right.

Thank you for this explanation. This helps considerably. With databases containing many folders, it may be impractical to add a space in the detail area. Could I accomplish what I want by searching for folders then changing the templates to notes or text en masse without having to add a space to each one?

It won't help to change the template -- if the item has no content, the result will still be the same.

One thing you could do is, after exporting, in toc.html, replace all occurrences of

href=""

with

<nothing/blank>

so that the items with no content are not clickable links.

We'll consider making this change to the export functionality.

Thank you so much. Just an observation if I may. In the forum under version information, the most recent release is 6.2.0.4. Shouldn't this be 6.2.0.5?

No, the .exe did not change, just the file

Export\HTML\convert.xslt
