The default option for publishing your manuals online is to have them “hosted” on the manula.com domain.
However, all paid plans also support publishing your manuals on your own domain.

This “own domain” option shows your manuals on your own domain, but still dynamically retrieves all topic content and images from the Manula servers. This means the manuals on your own site are always instantly up-to-date.

Here’s how to do this:

For PHP / Apache:

  • Download this zip file containing the integration files.
  • Upzip it
  • Edit the index.php file and:
    • In the setAccount line, fill in your account’s “URL Name” (see Account Settings)
    • In the setManual line, fill in your manual’s “URL Name” (see Manual Settings). Leave empty if you want to show a hub page with links to all your manuals.
    • In the setManualUrl line, fill in the root of the manual folder on your site, without a trailing slash, e.g. “http://www.mydomain.com/mymanual”
    • For hub pages, you can opt to show a special manual group only. In that case, in the setGroup line, fill in the URL name of the group. Otherwise, leave empty.
  • Now upload the 3 files (.htaccess, index.php and ManulaIntegrate.class.php) to the folder on your server where you want the manual to appear.
  • In the Manula Admin, go to Manual Settings
    • Check the “Redirect manual…” checkbox.
    • Then enter the root URL of the manual on your own domain (without trailing slash again)

For ASP / IIS:

  • Download this zip file containing the integration files.
  • Upzip it
  • Edit the web.config file and:
    • Set the accountName variable to your account’s “URL Name” (see Account Settings)
    • Set the manualName variable to your manual’s “URL Name” (see Manual Settings)
    • Set the manualRoot variable to the root of the manual folder on your site, without a trailing slash, e.g. “http://www.mydomain.com/mymanual”
    • For hub pages, you can opt to show a special manual group only. In that case, set the manualGroup variable to the URL name of the group. Otherwise, leave empty.
  • Now upload the three files (Default.aspx, Default.aspx.cs and web.config) to the folder on your server where you want the manual to appear.
  • In the Manula Admin, go to Manual Settings
    • Check the “Redirect manual…” checkbox.
    • Then enter the root URL of the manual on your own domain (without trailing slash again)
