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

Support Case Month: July 2012

Hi Guys

I have been a Likno All Web Menus customer for many years now and have always been impressed both by the product but more importantly by the support offered.

To date I have been using the MS Frontpage program as my editor.

I have recently migrated to using Apple Macs for my computing needs.

I am currently evaluating the Mac program Freeway Pro as a potential replacement for the MS Frontpage.

However as my All Web Menu structure is central to my site it is imperative that any new editor is fully compliant with All Web Menus.

Can you advise / confirm that All Web Menus will integrate with Freeway Pro.

Your input on this issue as always will be invaluable.

Kind Regards

Paul

Dear Paul,

First of all, you should keep in mind that AllWebMenus is only available for Windows. Nonetheless, we do have several MAC customers that use third-party software for emulation, without any problems reported so far.

Here are all your options to run Windows applications on an Intel-powered Mac:

Having said this, we are not familiar with the Freeway Pro application, but I do not see any reason that it would not work with AllWebMenus. The minimum requirement is that it allows you to insert custom code in your page(s) and that you can directly upload the AllWebMenus compiled files to your server.

If you were using the FrontPage plugin, then you may now need to do some things manually. These are:

1) Linking the menu to your page(s). Ideally if you are using templates you will manually add the Linking Code there once and it will propagate to all the pages.

2) Uploading of files. Once you compile your menu you will need to upload manually the compiled files to your server (using any FTP application).

Do let me know if you find any problems or if you need more specific instructions with something.

Kostas

Support Case Month: September 2012

Hi:

I am very interested in your AllWebMenus Pro product, but need to know if I am able to create the following menu as a Flex/Flash widget (SWF file). If so, do you have instructions how to do so in your Knowledgebase once I buy the product?

Your prompt response is much appreciated since I need to build this for a client this weekend.

Thanks,

Michael

Dear Michael,

I am afraid that AllWebMenus does not produce flash files. We only have JavaScript-based products.

Is there a specific reason why you would want this to be a flash applet? I am asking as I can only think of cons and no pros in this.

(Flash is not supported everywhere, it requires plugins to be installed into the browser, it is heavier, it is going to be dropped altogether by Apple & Google etc)

So, I use flash widgets to integrate with a BI tool called microstrategy. I am kind of stuck until they support HTML5. I am able to setup an HTML container. Basically  this is to create a selector for a dashboard versus a menu for a web page. If the example generates JavaScript or Actionscript, I can include your library to create the widget, and then use the code in the CDATA part of the Script tag. I welcome your thoughts.

Dear Michael,

I am afraid I am not aware of “microstrategy” at all. Still, our tools generate JavaScript and HTML, so it sounds as it will not be a problem.

The minimum requirements for AllWebMenus to work is that:

1) you are able to directly insert a HTML snippet in your page (the so-called “Linking Code”)

2) you are able to directly upload files to your server (preferably with FTP access)

Are these requirements met by your system? If so, then there should not be a problem.

Here is an example of the HTML code (“Linking Code”) you will need to insert in your page:

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->
<script type='text/javascript'>
      var MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [2]', awmBN='GN';
      awmAltUrl='';
</script>
<script src='/menu.js' language='JavaScript1.2' type='text/javascript'>
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->

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


Initial Email From:
Wim
Initial Email Subject: Modal Window
Support Case Month: July 2012

Hi,

I am a registered user and I recently made a modal window with a content larger than the size of the window. And what I expected happens, a scrollbar at the right side.

Now I bought an iPad, the newest, and there, when I open my website and start the modal window it appears without the scrollbar.

Is that a known problem or do I do something wrong?

Hope to hear from you soon,

Regards,
Wim

Dear Wim,

Was the content an external page? We discovered that Apple recently decided on iPads to block scrollbars in iframes. This is a recent development with great opposition on the net as this move from Apple has no reason whatsoever.

This is something that we cannot work around if Apple decides to keep it this way. The only solution would be to edit your external page and give <body> a fixed height so that there is a scrollbar produced within that page. Still, this is not a closed issue, as we are still expecting a response from Apple.

Dear Kostas,

Thanks for your fast reply. And yes, it is an external page. That means I have to check if the user is using an iPad and then to offer him another way to look at the info on that external page.

By the way, How do you check for an iPad?

Thanks again for your answer.
Wim
