Summary

FileMaker site still has v10 help on the /help/ URL.

Version

N/A

Operating system version

N/A

Description of the issue

FileMaker web site has a HTML version of FileMaker help, but it seems to be from v10:

http://www.filemaker.com/help/

Steps to reproduce the problem

Go to the URL above.

Expected result

To get help for the current v12.

Actual result

Getting help for v10.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

N/A.

Configuration information

N/A.

Workaround

Use built-in help, of course, or maybe download the PDF. (By the way, the last time I checked Mac help it took forever to open; using the online version was much faster.)

You see, I'm writing an article I want to put online and plan to add a link to FileMaker help page. I have to write it so:

  "Here comes an awkward part: I cannot find a fresh function reference on FileMaker, Inc. site. The one I found seems to come from v10. If this doesn't change, use the built-in help that comes with FileMaker or download the reference in PDF format."

Please don't just remove the old version. If you cannot update it, just leave it be, it's better than nothing.
