Dear company,

We want to integrate your  AllWebMenus with Kentico CMS. Is it possible?

If yes, we can buy to support for our customers.

Best regards

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

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

The AllWebMenus script can be inserted in any html authoring tool, capable to create properly formatted html code.

The only thing relative to the authoring tool is to have the ability to manually insert a small identification code in the element where the menu should be attached, in case you want your menu to have an Element-related position.

In order for the AllWebMenus menu to be inserted in any hosted website, the user should be able to do the following in the hosting environment:

The AllWebMenus menu can be inserted in any hosted website, as long as the user is able to do the following in the hosting environment:

1. Upload javascript files online at the hosted website, either in a subfolder called "awmdata" OR in the ROOT if subfolders are not possible OR in any special subfolder dedicated for javascripts by the host (we need to know the arrangement so that we give proper instructions to the user).

2. Similarly, upload image files online at the hosted website, either in a subfolder called "awmdata/menu" OR in the ROOT if subfolders are not possible OR in any special subfolder dedicated for images by the host (we need to know the arrangement so that we give proper instructions to the user).

3. Add some lines of javascript code inside each page (or the template) that will be online (the hosted pages should permit this with some method).

If Kentico CMS allows these (I do not see why not) then you have no problem using AllWebMenus with it.

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

Jonathan
Initial Email Subject: Web Button in Joomla
Support Case Month: February 2013

Hi, I was looking at your Likno Web Button Maker and it says that it works with any CMS. I am sure that it does but, as a person that is starting with cms, I can’t get it to show on my webpage. I am using Joomla and and installed the plugin sourcerer to put some html code in any article so I can paste the html code when I exported my button. I tried installing the exported image in media manager but it didn’t help.

Could you include on you’re website the installing method in popular CMS, I think it could really boost your sales for people like me who are just starting with this. Software that makes it easy to do complicated things that would require lots of code (like your software) is right up the alley to people who are not professionals.

Thank you very much for your help.

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

I am afraid that we do not have a specific Joomla plugin, but it is very easy to import your new button manually.

The steps you need to take are:

1) Export your Button:

export button

2) I recommend selecting the 32bit PNG format as it has the best quality and supports transparency:

export button as 32 png that supports transparency

3) Note the path where you exported this button. You can now use it as an image in Joomla or anywhere else.

4) If you want to create a 3-state button, you have two options. To create it as a single “sprite” image and change it through CSS, or to create three separate images and change through JavaScript. If this is what you are trying to do (a 3-state image), please send me details (eg is this for a page button, or for a menu?) so that I can be more specific in my help.

Regards,

Kostas

Hi Kostas,

It is for a page button Inside an article an you’re absolutely right, it is easy if I just add the image. The problem is creating a 3-state button easily with this method and this is what i’m trying to do.

If you could lend me a hand how to do this, that would be great.

Thank you for the great support,

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

This will require some hand-on coding on your part. The problem here is that the Joomla editor will remove any tags that do not have content, including your <style> and <script> tags.

I believe the easiest way is to use the CSS method, as this can have the code embedded into the actual item.

To do this, export as CSS and copy the code:

<html>

<head>

<title>Likno Web Button Maker sample page</title>

<style type="text/css">

.liknobtn {
           display:block;
          
width:120px;
           height:40px;
     
     margin:0;
      
    padding:0;
           }

.liknobtn1 {
            background: url("LiknoWebButtonMaker1.png") 0 0 no-repeat;
           
}

</style>

</head>

<body>

<div class="liknobtn liknobtn1" id="liknobtn_1" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmousedown="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -80px';" onmouseup="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 0';"></div>

</body>

</html>

Then you need to merge this code into a single button (removing the unneeded parts), and make sure that it has an empty space as content (or it will be deleted by Joomla):

<div style="display: block; width: 120px; height:40px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; background: url('/images/LiknoWebButtonMaker1.png') 0 0 no-repeat;" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmousedown="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -80px';" onmouseup="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 0';">&nbsp;</div>

Pay attention to the image URL (where you will upload it) and also to the quotes in there, to not match the “style” quotes.

Let me know if this worked.

Kostas

Support Case Month: January 2013

Hi,

We are considering purchasing one of your packages, but I had a few concerns about adding the menu to our site.  We currently use Miva Merchant for our E-commerce solution and I was wondering if you have ever integrated one of your menus on the Miva Merchant platform.  I noticed other CMS platforms like Drupal and WordPress to your site, but I just wanted to know if your menus would work with Miva Merchant.  And do you offer any sort of support help if we need help with implementation.

Thanks!
Randy

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Randy,

You should not have any problems with your E-Commerce platform. We do not have a specific plugin, but you can use the standard method of adding the Linking Code into your template (usually in the header file). In any case, we are here to help you with specific help if the need arises.

Initial Email Subject: help please
Support Case Month: July 2012

Hi,

I’ve been using AWM Pro (currently 5.3 build #892) for a few years now with Coffee Cup’s Visual Site Designer.
I haven’t changed the menu for about nine months and have run into some problems in trying to have my new menu appear on the site.
I have three questions:
1 - I’ve never been able to have the menu work in the site unless I manually add it onto every page, one at a time (using their HTML inserter - into “Body”). No big deal until now. I have been, and will be, adding more and more pages and it’s getting too timely to individually add a menu onto each page.
Is there anything I can do about this, or is there a limitation within my web authoring software that prevents me from just entering the code on one page and having it show up throughout the site, as your tutorials suggest?
2 - I have re-designed my menu, added and deleted some links. To test it, I created a copy of the site on a sub-domain. I cannot seem to get the new menu to appear even after completely deleting the old menu and files from the site folder and re-entering the new files/folder in the root directory.
What could I be doing incorrectly AND as an alternative:  How could I update my menu without having to completely create a new menu each time (once I get all this to work again)?
3 - My menu has radius corners. They have been rendering just fine in all browsers. All of a sudden in the latest Firefox (14.0.1) version there are no radius corners showing. Anything to do for that?

Thank you in advance,
Robert

Dear Robert,

1) Does Coffee Cup support the use of Template pages? If so, then you should be able to add the Linking Code only to the Template page and it will propagate to the rest of the pages automatically.

Note here that you only need to add the Linking Code once. After that, whenever you make changes to the menu you only need to recompile and upload the new files.

2) I cannot know for sure what went wrong. Can you please send me the URL so that I can have a look? Most likely cause I guess is a wrong path in the Linking Code, or a wrong Positioning setup.

3) This is a known issue that has already been corrected in the latest version. It occurred because FF14 changed the CSS code they use for rounded corners. Just recompile with build 894 to correct the problem.

Thanks for your reply.
1) Coffee Cup says: "Visual Site Designer does not use a CMS format", so I think it means, no Template Page available.
    Is there an alternative?
2) This is a "testsite" with only a few of my web pages. The menu was "saved as" from the menu on my main site.  I changed the folder to "....testsite" to be in the root folder of this testsite.
I did not link the menu to pages, I took the code and entered it on each page with VSD's html inserter (as I have always done).
3) Downloaded 894. I'll "recompile" when I get all this cleared up first :)
    Whenever I recompile, do I need to change the code on each page (given no template) in order for the menu to work?
Robert

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Robert,

1) Do you have a local copy of your files? If so, then you should be able to automatically Link the menu to your pages through AWM. If not, then I am afraid that you will probably have to insert it manually as you do now.

2) I tested your site, and it seems that you did not upload the compiled menu files to the correct location. According to your Linking Code, the compiled menu file is expected at:

http://www.testsite.nierikasol.net/Site-Menu.js

3) No need to re-Link. You generally NEVER need to re-Link to a page that already has a Linking Code. This is so much true, that even the Linking Code of AllWebMenus v3 (2004) will still work with the compiled files of the latest AllWebMenus v5.

(of course you do need to update your Linking Code if you move or rename the compiled files)

Reply From: Robert

1) I create the site locally, so I have all files on disk. I don't understand how to "automatically Link the menu to your pages through AWM" though. Would you be so kind as to give me step-by-step instructions?

2) I'm confused here too. I have attached two captures of my folders on my server (earthlink). Capture1 shows the AWM files under the root "testsite" directory, and Capture2 shows the same files in the testsite/public directory. Am I missing a basic concept here. I obviously knew what I was doing the last time I did this a year ago---my menus have worked perfectly, but it seems it all escapes me now!

3) So to make sure I understand --- this is the "linking code":

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR TESTSITE-Menu-2 (CSS MENU)******** -->
<link href="TESTSITE-Menu-2.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script charset="UTF-8" src="TESTSITE_Menu_2.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR TESTSITE-Menu-2 (CSS MENU)******** -->

and if I have it installed on all my pages (or can get the single installation to work on all pages) what files do I need to upload to the server (and where) to make the new menus appear/work?

Thank you very much for your time!
Robert

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

1) After you compile, you can click the “Link menu to web pages” button:

link menu to web pages

This will take you to the Link dialog where you can select files and link to them.

select files to link menu

2) Did you maybe change the compiled menu name? This is your Linking Code:

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR Site-Menu ******** -->

<script type="text/javascript">var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="Site-Menu",awmBN="866";awmAltUrl="";</script><script charset="UTF-8" src="Site-Menu.js" type="text/javascript"></script><script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR Site-Menu ******** -->

While this is looking for “Site-Menu.js”, I do not see such a file in your screenshots. Instead I see a file named “TESTSITE-Menu-2.js”.

This suggests that you changed the Compiled name, but you did not update your Linking Code to point to the new file.

3) The Linking Code you showed me here is from a CSS menu. There are different Linking Codes for JS menu, Server-Side menu etc. If you change the type (genre) of the menu then you also need to update the Linking Code.

The compiled files also differ depending on the type of menu you selected. The 100% safe choice is to compile into a new folder so that you know which files were generated. If you compile into an existing folder with many files, you can still spot the new ones if you “sort by date”.

Initial Email Subject: Menus for CMS (specifically Concrete5)
Support Case Month: August 2012

Before I update my support plan, I need to know if your menus work in CMS (specifically Concrete5)?  I no longer do web design and creation using other methods.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

We do not have a specific plugin for Concrete, but it should work fine if Concrete5 meets the following two requirements:

1) you should be able to edit the template files or directly add some code in your post (depending on whether you want the menu into a single post or the whole site)

2) you should be able to upload the AllWebMenus compiled files to your server

In either case, I see that your Update Plan expired very recently, so you can use your existing version to test if this works as expected.

To avoid any possible misunderstanding, I need to state here that the expiration of your Update Plan means that you cannot use any newer versions (released after the expiration date). You can still use the version you already have forever – this does not “expire”. So there is really no need to extend your Update Plan until you confirm that your existing version works fine with Concrete5.

Let me know if you need more specific help, also giving me your test URL so that I can see what you have done so far.
