Description Mike McCune 2007-06-18 20:52:54 EDT
Go to:

1) configuration
2) go to a config channel
3) view a file so you are looking at:


4) note the help link goes to:


but we have specific sections in the docs for this:

<a name="S3-SM-FILE-DETAILS"> Configuration File Details — 

in the above mentioned html page.
Comment 1 Mike McCune 2007-06-18 20:54:17 EDT
Will need to better parameterize the help links in the jspf:

<%@ include file="/WEB-INF/pages/common/fragments/configuration/files/header.jspf"%>

to pass in a help-link param or something along those lines.

fails qa

it should be going to Configuration File Details —

but right now it goes to
6.6. Channels
Comment 4 Máirín Duffy 2007-11-28 08:37:21 EST
Preethi, it looks like ALL of the context sensitive links are now broken. There
much have been a change in the way the docs are built or something that breaks
all of our links.

I filed bug 402711. I don't think this context link should be changed to this
new format and every single other one broken; I think if possible it would be
better to change the generated html of the docs to once again comply to the
format the web context sensitive links expect.

I am changing this bug to NEEDINFO and making it dependent on bug 402711.

Created attachment 294400 [details]
list of pages => context links

attaching list of pages, their suggested context links, separated by which
pages have good links and which have missing links or links that will change
when bug 402711 is fixed.
Comment 6 Máirín Duffy 2008-02-11 11:40:24 EST
updating context-links based on current state of rhn 5.1 docs. 


Please see attachment 294400 [details] in comment 5 for a list of the pages that should
have updated context help links. They should now be pointing the docs pages
referenced per page (or block of pages) in that file.
