Initial Email Subject: Hi I have a strange question. Bet you have not heard this one before.
Support Case Month: February 2014

Is it possible to have a page that uses your menu that does not link to anything.

I have split my site into a default.html landing view (which is lite)

I then have another home page called index.html which is the main site.

I use your side menu and would like to have this menu showing on default.html (showing all the pages that it links to) but without the links working.

I.e. to tantalize the viewer but not allow them to go further into the web until they become a member / contact me.

I.e. all other pages within my site with the menu will need to work normally.

A strange request.  I apologize.

I hope you can accommodate me.

Mark

Hello Mark,

Hmmm….i can think of 2 solutions.

1st solution: You can create a copy of the existing menu and then remove the links. This way you will have 2 menus which look identical but the one does not have links. The one with no links you can link it to your default.html page and leave the other one as it was.

2nd solution: You can have your menu as CSS menu, which means you need to add the UL/LI structure in your pages. You can have the regular UL/LI structure to all the pages instead of the default.html in which you can remove the <a> tags from the menu items. So, the links will not work. In this solution you will only have one menu linked to all pages, but you have to add the UL/LI structure to all your pages. This will be easy if you have an include file but if you not it will take you more time.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Thank you!
Let me try the first solution.
I think it will work best.
When you say copy exactly how do I do that?
I know there is the code you include in your page. I also know about the folder that contains menu code and images for menu parts etc. and a menu.js (I think) within the html pages.
A copy would, I assume, duplicate the folder to another name, call it differently from the page and refer to a change from menu.js to menu1.js (I think) which would not have links.
I have got quite lazy and simply add new pages into the menu.js file as new lines with the new page and link.
I.e. I don't use your console any more as template is set up and runs.
Apologies if I have totally missed your point on what to do. Also for the bother of this long email.
Regards
Mark

Hello Mark,

I would suggest to copy your .awm menu project to another place with another name for example menuDefault.awm

Then, open it in AllWebMenus and remove the links from the items you don't want them to have links.

Go to the Project Properties and change the compile name (as it cannot be the same as the existent menu) so for example make it menuDefault.js

Then, compile that project and link it to your default.html page.

It should show as expected.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards
