Top, Next, Previous Topic Scenarios

Here are some advanced scenarios on inserting links to Top, Next and Previous topics in your online documentation. In order to learn how to insert such elements, refer to this topic: Top, Next, Previous Topic

  • Scenario: a topic will be hidden from TOC in the publication. 
    Let's suppose, the topic called 'Winning The Wand Over' on the screenshot below will not be shown in TOC.

    This means that the Next Topic link in the 'Lord Voldemort' topic will point to 'Hermione Granger'.
  • Scenario: your topic is a folder.
    If your topic is a folder, it can't be used as a top/next/previous topic, so the next eligible topic will be taken. On the screenshot below, the Next Topic link inside the 'Where to Start' topic will point to 'Harry Potter' because 'Magic' is a folder.

  • Scenario: different output tags for a topic and a published version of documentation.
    The topic called 'Lord Voldemort' is tagged as beginner.

    So, if the documentation is published with the pro output tag, the 'Lord Voldemort' topic will be excluded from the end version of the manual. 

    This means that the Next Topic link inside the 'Albus Dumbledore' topic will point to 'Winning The Wand Over'.
Information You can manage all settings that are mentioned below in Topic Properties.
