  • More info about my question...

    I see that the web address of any Custom Site Collection Help category or topic includes the AssetKey in the querystring. Unfortunately, the AssetKey's value does not make use of other Custom Site Collection Help columns, such as "Product" or "Context Key". So perhaps my question can be re-phrased to be:

    How to craft a hyperlink into custom Site Collection Help feature's help categories and help topics using the Product and/or the Context Key columns?

    More advanced thanks,

    Patrick

  • Hi Patrick!

    Finally I was able to get it work in SharePoint 2013, it should work in 2010 too.

    After switching on the site Collection feature "Custom Site Collection Help", I made a new "Help Collection", Help Category" and "Help  Topic" in the "Site Collection Help" document library in root. After a while is was able to select my new collection in site collection setting "Help settings" menu.

    You have to add a scriptlet to your page (master page) like this:

    <script type="text/javascript" language="JavaScript">
           var navBarHelpOverrideKey = "[Help Collection Product]_[Context Key]";
    </script> 

    Hope it works for you too!
