Does the Server Side API work with OpenCart?

I noticed the Unlimited Server Side API being offered as a gift for free with purchase of All Web Menus Pro. I already have licenses to All Web Menus Pro, Button Maker and Photo Frame programs. It seems silly to me to buy just the API when I could purchase AWM and get it for free, but I already have it.

Thanks!
Judy

Dear Judy,

The Server Side API is a JavaScript API that allows you to generate menus with JavaScript Code. It requires that you do some manual coding and usually the user writes PHP or ASP code that “produces” the required JavaScript code for the menu.

I just want it to be clear that it is not something that will automatically connect to your database and create the menu for you.

You can see an example with step-by-step instructions here:

Thank you so much for the information. I am familiar with the term API, so I understand I'm taking on some coding and possibly some head banging :)

I want to incorporate the menu being used on a website with its corresponding WordPress Blog and OpenCart Storefront, so I believe this is the tool I will need.

Cheers and thanks again!

Judy

Initial Email Subject: Frames
Support Case Month: August 2012

Throughout the different times he have designed and redesigned our site we have been told many things.  And of course many things have changed through the years. 

One that I am just not sure on is the use of Frames.  I recall being told that it wasn't a good practice to use a frameset but it really does seem like the best route to go.  Let me explain...

Our old site which is www.home2000.com used 3 frames.  Top, left and main.  The topFrame held the upper navigation, logo and search feature so it was always a consistent and did not have to be refreshed.  Then when someone would select one of the links in the upper navigation, it would load a menu in the left frame and content in the mainFrame.  This really worked well for us.

When he decided to redesign our site, we wanted to move away from Java mainly.  We also wanted to rewrite our pages to load faster etc.  We had someone who converted our pages into HTML.  When he did this, he wrote the upper navigation into the page as well. Because of this, when we load a new page, the whole thing reloads because its all part of the same page.  If you look at our old site, and compare it to our new site (www.home2000.com/h2) you will see what I mean.

What is our best way to do this?  I was thinking that if I just use a very basic frame system that holds the logo, navigation and search feature; a lower frame could hold the display pages and that way the upper frame always stays consistent because it wont change anyways...it is exactly the same on each page.  I read a little on iFrames, but I really don't think that is the way to go for this situation.  Please let me know what you think would be the best route and if there are problems with using frames this way.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Bob

Dear Bob,

I believe that there is no need to keep using frames in your site. The top frame is really light and considering that any images are cached and not really reloaded every time, it is probably lighter to have a single page instead of three (even if one never reloads).

Moreover, if you use a single page you will be able to use other menu features, such as the “auto-highlight” which shows the current item highlighted.

If you want to keep the maintenance easy, you could put the “top section” HTML into a separate include file (you need some server-side language for this, such as PHP or ASP), so changing the logo in a single file will update all your pages.

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


Initial Email From:
Hans
Initial Email Subject: Passing paired variables
Support Case Month: March 2012

Hi, I am using the Web Tabs Builder and I would like to pass variables to the pages I selected via the body page link.

This however doesn't work. The variables get lost underway.

How can I pass variables via my URL to the tab pages?

Thanks for your help 

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am afraid I will need some more information in order to understand the problem. What kind of variables are you passing, and were?

Is this variable a fixed value that you added into the project?

web tabs settings

Or are you passing different values each time using the JavaScript API?

If you are putting the value in the project, like in the screenshot, note that you can only put a specific value – NOT a variable name to be calculated when you click the tab.

Kostas

Hello,

I am passing variables from outside the Web Tab to the tab sheets.

Like for instance, the year and month variables I use outside the webtab and I need them in the pages inside the webtabs.

I found a solution in that I use session variables. That works all right.

But I know now that it is impossible to transfer name value pairs from outside the webtab to the pages inside the individual tabs.

Thanks for your rapid answer anyhow.

Best regards,
Hans

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Hans,

It is not impossible to pass parameters. This is why I asked you how you are trying to do this.

The session variables will of course work fine, as would cookies. However it is possible to pass even normal parameters if this is what you want. The way to do this however is through the use of the API and the DIVs or UL/LI population method. In this case, you define the tabs content within your page, and you can use your server-side code (PHP, ASP etc) to “write” the correct URL for each Tab Body.

If you still want to do it this way and need more help, do let me know.

If not can you please send me:

IE8 Error

IE8 Blank

IE9 Blank

Safari Works.

Reply From: Barry

You are correct I removed that and the menus show up.

However only on Safari the Roll Over works and the IE machines the mouse rollover does not work.

When I click I get the color change which is the same effect I set for roll over and click.

Barry

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Oops, sorry, I checked with Firefox & Chrome...

Indeed there is a problem in IE and it seems to be originating because of an open <script> in the header. Specifically this line:

<image001.png>

is not properly parsed (as the page is “html” and not “asp”), hence the tag remains open. If you remove (or fix) this line everything will work.

I believe you can also set your server to parse html files as if they were asp.

Dear Barry,

I just checked your site again and I do see the roll-over effect in all browsers:

Are you sure you still have this problem in IE? Did you delete your “Temporary Internet Files”?

its something specific on the two test boxes I have.

I tested in windows 8 metro and non metro on another box and it worked.

I cleared the history and cache etc.

Thanks,

Barry

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Barry,

Is it possible that you have changed a specific IE setting that affects this, however I could not possibly guess which one.

I believe the best chance in troubleshooting this is to compare the IE Settings registry from your test-box with that of a machine where it works.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Tony,

First of all, you should know that our “flagship” product which is the menu-builder, is AllWebMenus and not Likno Drop-Down Menu Trees.

This has the most plugins/addins, it can work with server-side code, with database, with just about everything.

Regarding the rest of the products, the five “builders” can all load their content from the page from either a UL/LI list or from specified DIVs. As such if you can use server-side code (PHP/ASP) to “write” the required content into your page you can then use our builders to transform it.

Regarding WordPress, all of our products can work with it, but Accordion & Tabs also have specific plugins that make the linking easier. For the rest you just need to copy-paste the Linking Code and upload your Compiled files manually.

Regarding the pricing, all the builders come in 3-Domains and Unlimited-Domains flavor, so you need to be more specific as to what you want. In any case, you can check our pricing yourself by creating your desired bundle in our purchase page:

http://www.likno.com/awmregister.php

(note: the above page assumes that you want AllWebMenus too)
