Support Case Month: March 2013

I am using Frontage 2002 (10.6308.6870) on windows 7. I am running 5.3 Build #904.

I can import the Frontpage navigation structure but when I try to generate the menu Allwebmenus stops working.

Do you get any error messages when this happens? If so, can you please send me a screenshot?

Dear Geoff,

This means that AllWebMenus does not have enough access rights to do what you are asking. This can be caused if you have set the FrontPage to run in “Compatibility Mode” in windows 7, as this also gives it administrator rights.

I believe the easiest way to correct this issue, is to run AllWebMenus “as Administrator”. To do this permanently, you need to right-click on the desktop shortcut, select Properties, then the “Compatibility” tab, then check the “Run this program as an administrator” option. Note that this will only work when you start AllWebMenus from the desktop icon. It will not work if you start AllWebMenus by double-clicking a project file.

Help,

It has worked for years and the menu disappeared from the home page.

Advice please.

Hello,

It seems that you moved your menu files (or HTML files) around and this confused the Linking Code (see the “src” parameter).

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus linking code section must always 
be placed right AFTER the BODY tag-->
<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="horzmenu",awmBN="904";
</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="{MENU.JS PATH}" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->

Please make sure that your menu files are properly located locally and that your Root Folder setting is correct:

menu site root folder settings

If asked to “update the links”, do *not* do this as it will probably mess things up.

Then re-Compile and re-Link your menu to your pages and upload them again.

The Linking Code should now look more like this:

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus linking code section must always 
be placed right AFTER the BODY tag-->
<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="horzmenu",awmBN="904";
</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="/horzmenu.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->

Note that once you fix this, then every time you change something in the menu you only need to Compile and upload the menu files (“horzmenu.js” and “awmdata” folder). You do *not* need to Link and upload your pages.

Best Regards,

Kostas

Hi .. am using All Web Menus Pro 5.3   Are the search engines able to read it?  
Thanks,
Margie

Hello,

The standard AllWebMenus menu has all its content within the JavaScript files, so search engines that are not able to access JS files will not see it.

There are two tricks you can do to increase your SEO:

First you can create a “sitemap” page (AllWebMenus will generate it automatically for you). If you link this page to your index page (even as a link not noticeable to the human eye) the search engine crawlers will follow it and discover all the menu links. To do this, have a look under “Tools->Create Sitemaps”.

Second, you can turn your menu into a UL/LI menu. This means that you will have to insert the menu content into every single page (the same way you would do with a CSS menu). This of course adds more maintenance, but the menu links are visible in all pages. If you choose this option, we recommend that you use an include file so that you only have to edit the menu content in a single place if you want to change something in the menu in the future.

You can find more details about both methods in the project properties:

Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Modal Windows Builder,  abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
User
Initial Email Subject: Web Modal Windows Builder - Auto close the modal window 
Support Case Month: March 2013

Would it be possible to setup in the application to either auto close the modal window after the specified # of seconds otherwise the user can click the Close icon before # of seconds elapsed?

I mean that it needs to work with "Make certain links/forms in page open in this window". Basically the link runs a php script with a dynamic id value (favorites.php?action=add&id=#) and returns a result message (error/success/login) in the modal window as an alert. I want this modal window to dismiss automatically after 5 seconds or the user can click on the close icon.
Thanks

Hmmm… this is not officially supported, however you can do this with custom code.

Specifically you can add some JavaScript code to call the “close” command after 5 seconds. If the Modal is already closed, nothing will happen.

On your link try adding something like:

<a … onclick="setTimeout(function () {likno_modal_project.close();},5000);">

Initial Email Subject: Menu Question 2
Support Case Month: March 2013

Dear Kostas,

Is it possible in the sliding menu or any menu to make one menu item a different color?

For example: if you look at my sliding menu, the last item says "Go back to top of the page" could that item have a black background, and on mouse over turn gray?

I want the "Go back to the top of the page" to be more noticeable? so it catches your eye and not blend in so much.

If I change things it changes the entire menu?

Can I just change one Item?

Please let me know.

Thanks Again!
Robert

Hello Robert,

You can select this particular item, and "customize it" by changing the properties you like:

customize menu item

To do so, please click this first:

submenu item show all values
