Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Hi,

I’m thinking of buying your menu building software.

Can your software build a horizontal menu like the one on this website http://www.navigata.ca ? I also need the vertical menu from that site as well but it might be tricky because when you use the horizontal menu and select an item it goes to a page which also displays the vertical menu on the left but the menu on the left already has the position selected where you are on that page which is great but think it might be hard to do. How would the menu on the left know to already highlight/choose where you are when you didn’t select it from that left menu – you selected it from the top horizontal menu?

Can this be done with your software and what extra “add ons” would I have to buy to make this work?

Thanks,
Daryl

Hello Daryl,

First, thank you for your interest in our Likno products.

This is supported in AllWebMenus without too much effort. All you have to do is to use this AllWebMenus feature in the vertical menu:

auto highlight menu item

Then, the vertical menu will have the item that matches the URL of the loaded page as "Selected", no matter which link (or menu item) made this page load!

Initial Email Subject: cross frame menu doesn't work in Chrome
Support Case Month: May 2012

Hi, I bought your Allwebmenus pro and am satisfied with it. However, I made cross frame menu and found that it worked at any browsers except Chrome. Would you please tell me how to fix it?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Can you please send us the URL so that we can check your menu? Normally there shouldn't be any problems with Chrome.

Hello Kostas,

Thank you for your reply.
I checked the browser again and am confused a little bit:
the cross-frame menu only failed to perform on the chrome "in my computer" (os: win7):
chrome in my computer ->failed
chrome in other computer ->ok
chromium (linux) ->ok
IE in any computer ->ok
Firefox in any computer ->ok
Safari in any computer ->ok
Opera ->ok

maybe i will check again and let you know if it keeps happening. thanks!

Hello,
Can you please check if you have any addins that may be affecting your Chrome?
The best way to test for this is to disable them one by one until you find which one causes the problems.
If this is the case, please let us know so that we can contact the addin developer and find a solution.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

Did you not turn them off one-by-one as I instructed you?
Well, if you see the problem again, please let me know.
Also, can you please send me a list of the add-ons you have?

hello,
i found the problem happens only when i tried to view the page from local driver. Thus, the problem might be derived from win7.
thanks

Hello again,

I am glad to hear that you resolved the issues you had.

Regarding Chrome and local files, keep in mind that this may be due to the increased security features of Chrome, which may block different local files from interacting with each-other through frames.

The same would be true for online files if they come from different domains (note here that “likno.com” and “www.likno.com” may be considered a different domain in Chrome!).

However in local files the security is increased so they may be blocked from interacting with each other, even if they are in the same folder.
