Hi,

I have one question if you can answer it. If I made changes in the v. 5 software to an existing menu in which I made from the older version (2003) software I had, would the menu not work when I upload it to my webpage? I have in fact made this change, saved it, compiled it and linked to my pages, but the menu doesn’t show up on the web pages. If I preview from the compiled links in the software, the menu shows up with the changes I have made. I did upload the js file and the awm file to the server. Still no menu appears on the page and it gives me an error on the page on the bottom left corner. I never had a problem uploading the menu to the server and it showing up on my web pages. If you have any explanation, I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks again,

Roxanne

Hello,

Did you upload the “awmdata” folder which holds the library and image files? If not, please do this and check again.

If you did, then please send me the URL of the page so that I can see what’s wrong.

Hi Kostas,

Thanks for replying. Since I emailed I was able to solve the problem of making the menu appear on the web page. I have a different problem now though. The new v.5 is just a little different than the 2003 version I had. I’m not quite understanding the positioning to get the menu to fit on the web page where I want it. On the web page template, I have a column on the left side in which the menu is placed. However, it is offset to towards the middle of the page. How do I position it to be in the place I want it to be? Thank you for your help!

Thanks,

Roxanne

Dear Roxanne,

It seems that you have specifically set the menu to be have an offset relative to the positioning element:

menu relative to an element

Also, I see that your positioning code is very old and possibly not as accurate as it could be.

Please find the following in your page:

<td height="2">

<div align="center"> <style>.awmAnchor {position:relative}</style> <span id='awmAnchor-Northside' class='awmAnchor'></span></div></td>

And change it into this:

<td height="2" id='awmAnchor-Northside'>&nbsp;</td>

This will position your menu relative to the table cell with pixel-perfect accuracy.

Regards,

Kostas

Hi again Kostas,

I changed the source code you suggested, but the positioning of the menu is still offset to the right in the table cell. Please let me know what I should do to get this menu centered within the table cell.

Thanks,

Roxanne

Did you also remove the offsets I showed you in the screenshot?

Also, considering that the table cell is smaller than the menu width, you may want to change your Positioning to the following values:

menu offset

Well, I do have one more question. The menu I have was made with the 2003 software I had before upgrading. How hard would it be to change from the menu I have to a sliding menu?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

It is as simple as changing a single property:

make sliding menu
