August 4th, 2009Create a timeline menu with AllWebMenus
It never ceases to amaze us the use that customers give to our application and the type of menus that are built, with a dose of creativity!
As a result of a work related project, one of our customers took the initiative and created a timeline menu with various options.
As our customer, Larry Korte, stated
"A timeline is never truly finished, and that's the beauty of using AllWebMenus Pro."
Here is what he did:
"Faced with a client request for a historical timeline that needs modifying when they want to add another event and that must work on popular browsers, I started looking for an easy solution without a lot of programming and testing [...] I already use AllWebMenu Pro for the main menu on [this] website, why not add second menu that provides the timeline function?
I actually started with the main menu and renamed it. The menu is anchored to my timeline graphic (table). I laid out the horizontal high level menu with a graphic dot and text as HTML - Formatted mode. I then used HTML - full mode to layout the picture and text for the second level menu, using only one submenu item per main menu item. I even added a link on one submenu so the browser can link to additional information about a timeline event. To make the coding part easier, I developed a page with all the pictures and text, then copied and pasted the HTML code into the menu program.
The next part was to figure out what to do with the remaining time I had estimated to complete the project.
Very fast idea to implementation
Easy to make updates
Easy to expand
Pre-tested in multiple browsers
