    HTML Help first page


    Not sure if this is the right group to post this so sorry if it's not...

    I've written a help file in HTML Help but when i compile it and then launch
    the file i get a page not found message for the first page. When I then
    click the page from the menu it is shown without problems.

    Is there some naming convention for the first page (like on a web server)
    - at the moment it's named introduction.htm

    Many thanks for any help
    dave

    Re: HTML Help first page

    you have not followed the naming conventions

    just rename the main page to index.html, change all the links accordingly
    and then complie your help file again

    99% of the time this should solve your problem


    Note : I also run a mailing list/ezine where I regularly
    discuss and try to solve similar problems. You might want
    to sign for it at http://www.geocities.com/nerdfilez/

    Hope you find my advice useful :0)
