Help Topics

How Tos (1)

You can find this section under Site Help > Help Topics in the IRP Admin left navigation menu.

You create Help Topics a level below Help Categories. Help Topics contain the detailed help information.

You can enter information using a rich text editor or by writing in HTML. This means that you can fully customise the Topics.

You can assign each Help Topic to one Help Category; the Help Topic will then be displayed below this Help Category in the left navigation menu. Here is a good example from the Vivomed site:

If Site Help is enabled in Application Settings, customers can go directly to the Help page by entering <YourIRP>Help.aspx in their browser. Of course, you can provide a link to this area in an appropriate part of your navigation.

The main HelpTopics.aspx screen appears as follows:

Can I disable help topics on my website?

Yes, you can do this by checking the ‘Help’ box at the top of the ‘Help Topics’ screen in IRP Admin. This disables the main Help Application Setting. When set to false (the box is unchecked), the user's browser will redirect to your home page if they attempt to access the front-end Help page. When set to true (the box is checked), Site Help will be available on the front-end of the website.  Note that you can still add website Help even if the Help box is not checked is not checked.
