I have found a bug.
[chm date: 2002-08-14]...

If the php_manual_notes.chm file is not in the directory with php_manual_en.chm, the help contents do not display.  I don't want the user notes.

Now I have tested this with all the four skins included with IE5/Win2k and all pages are displayed. What IE do you use?

setting to feedback.

Using the "Hi" skin on W2K (SP2) with IE 6.0.26

We have reports about non-displaying manual pages because of missing notes. Even if you have that notes file there,
pages without notes are not showed using some IE6 setups (not all!), because IE6 puts the error message of an inline frame to the top document for some reason. It's far not logical, and till now we were unable to find a solution.

The quick fix if you would not like to see notes is to edit the skins/greenlinks/style.css file. First delete the first few lines causing the links to be green (so you get the lo skin ;), and then add this:

    #pageNotes { display: none; }

Then even when you have php_manual_notes.chm in place, the notes won't appear.

This won't fix the problem with files which does not have notes (test it with the CHM part for example). For that problem, I cannot provide any solution.

The logical thing would be from IE6, is if a page is not found in an iframe, the error is displayed in that iframe and not in the parent document... Next week I'll take a summer break, and then I'll look into this with at least releasing a test suite for IE6 users out there to test for possible solutions...

You might find that manually assigning the src of the
iframe after the main page has loaded is a workable solution to this problem.

I dunno -- seems like something has changed in chm_sample_7 to cause this problem.  I went back to sample_6 and it's working perfectly without any user notes.
 [2002-08-17 06:01 UTC]
Nothing has changed in user note loading, you probably upgraded your IE from 5 to 6... BTW I'll try that manual assignment...
 [2002-08-26 08:44 UTC]
Wez I tried that manual assignment and it does not work at all even in IE5 it returns with an error if I try to put a nonexistent page in the iframe. It works if the page exists. So it's even worse then the method currently used... Doh...

Is still still an issue in the 10th edition of the chm documentation avaliable from ?
 [2002-11-01 04:08 UTC]
You should install the Service Pack 1 for IE6 or apply the .reg file included in the distribution, and all should work with or without user notes.
