Error by searching
we are using Scroll HTML Exporter 3.5.1 (Conf 5.10.8). We have created now our first own template, because we want to have control over the styles. That works fine, but now the search doesn't work properly. When you type a phrase and press ENTER, it doesn't show the results but always a search.html with the text:
#if ($scrollVersions.Language.Key) #end #parse("com/k15t/scroll/scroll-webhelp-theme/scroll-html/include/include-htmlhead.vm") ##TODO maybe this can be dropped, if no old browsers (IE) need to be supported
This is obiously a part of a VM-file.
What went wrong?
The reason why you're seeing this error is because of the old Scroll HTML Exporter you're using.
We changed the handling of search results in Scroll HTML Exporter 3.8.1 (see https://k15t.jira.com/browse/EXP-2476), the export now uses a separate
search.htmlpage when performing a search.
The current version of the webhelp-theme on Bitbucket is updated to use this feature, but this is not backwards compatible with older versions, which leads to the described error.
You can either upgrade Scroll HTML to v3.8.1 or you'd need to base your template on an older version of the webhelp-theme which still uses the old search behaviour.
The last version that still contains this old search behaviour is tagged as
1.1.14 on bitbucket: https://bitbucket.org/K15t/scroll-webhelp-theme/commits/tag/1.1.14
I hope this helps.
