With Inline Manual, you can create a Walkthrough that will take a user from one page to another within the same domain. You can do it by setting up a path for a step in the Misc panel. However, you may want to create a Walkthrough that will take users from one Site to another and these two websites are not within the same subdomain. For example, you are trying to move users from https://generalsite.com to https://acme.com.
In this article, we’ll show you how to do it.
The best way to achieve this is to add a custom HTML button to a step's content that will link to a specific topic. It will look like this in HTML:
<a href="https://acme.com/?imTopic=12345" onclick="inlinemanualplayer.deactivate()">Next</a>
The direct link to a Topic is: https://acme.com/?imTopic=12345
This will show the Next link within the step, and upon clicking it, it will deactivate the currently active Topic on https://generalsite.com, redirect the user to https://acme.com Site and start Topic number 12345 there.
Note that the Inline Manual player must be installed on both Sites for it to work as intended.
You can also launch a specific tutorial on a specific step with an additional parameter:
The first step index is 0, therefore if you want to jump to step 6, you will have to enter 5.
To get the topic ID:
- Go to Sites within the Inline Manual portal and choose the desired Site.
On the Topic list, find the correct Topic.
Check the ID under the ID column across the Topic title.
