Description Cheryl Fernandes 2015-10-16 17:11:37 UTC
Description of problem:
I am trying to create an HTML document with a TOC on the RHS and multiple HTML pages, with each chapter and major section on a separate page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I am using Publican 3.2

How reproducible:
Easily reproducible


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a document. 'publican create --name testdocument'
2. Build it to produce the TOC on the RHS  'publican build --formats=html-desktop --langs=en-US'
3. If you open the html page, you can see the TOC on the RHS and all content is on a single HTML page.

Actual results:
Since I'm using html-desktop, Publican outputs the document as a single HTML page with the table of contents located in a separate pane on the left side of the document. 

Expected results:
I want the TOC to be present on the RHS but the content to be displayed in multiple HTML pages, with each chapter and major section on a separate pages like it displays when I build with option 'html'.

Additional info:
Can I get this done if I create a website instead of a document?

You can't get this without creating a brand and customising the output.

What I'd recommend is using DocBook5 & html output and then in your brand modify the css so that the TOC, which is at the bottom as a pop-up, is displayed on the RHS and not a pop-up.
