Two items ... I would like the background of the menu to expand all the way across the DIV so there is no white space on the right ... and I would like to make the home icon linked to the home page.

Thank you in advance for all of your help!

Hello Jim,

In order to make you menu act as a menu bar relative to your DIV with an ID of "container" click on Menu Type,

Select "Yes, widen items….", "Element with ID" and insert container

Select the "Do not widen items…", Show Background at Right.

menubar settings

As for the link on home icon I am afraid this is not possible through the Main Menu Group Header (as it is right now).

However, you can achieve that result by removing the Main Menu Group Header (I guess you don't need it anymore)

Click on Style Editor -> Main Group Style -> Has Header and select No.

Then, select your Home main menu item in your Menu Editor, click on All Values and find the Foreground Image, select the Home icon that already exists. This way you can have that design with the home icon on home main menu item and you can also place the link to your home page in Link value.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

I do have one more question. When I go to my drop down menus under product or industry and click an item, the menu sits on open on that page for a few seconds. Is there a way to stop this?

So if I go to Industry and click Educational the menu stays open for a few seconds.

Thanks,
Beth

Hello Beth,

My first guess is that you have the following option checked. Please, click on Global Properties -> Show Item or Group on Appear and uncheck the "If the highlighted item is inside (or parent of) a submenu group, this will also appear selected and open".

auto highlight menu item

If this is not your case, check if you have selected the submenus to be sticky. If you had done so, please click on Global Properties -> Sticky Submenus -> Non-Sticky.

sticky submenu

When you are finished with your changes, please re-compile your menu project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

If none of the above are the cases please export and send me your project file, so that we can have a better look at the problem.

This is what you should do to export your project into a ZIP file and then email this ZIP to us.

export menu project

Thank you.

Kind Regards,

How do I get the menu to no link to a page if you are currently on the page.

For instance, if I am on the 'about' page I would like the link to be inactive and a different color to show you are on that page. Would I need to create a separate menu for each page?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Elizabeth,

You don't need to create another menu. You just need to set the correct properties for your desired result on "Show Item or Group on Appear" in Global Settings.

This way, you can have your menu items to appear as selected when you are on that page.

show menu item or menu group on appear

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Support Case Month: February 2014

Hi I'm interested in your software for Joomla site.  Can you tell me:

Can I use the generated menus on multiple site?

Is the code for the menu that is generated editable?

Can the menus have different colors for each of the menu items:

Home|About|Contact

so Home might be red, About blue and Contact orange?

Thanks,
Alan

Hello Alan,

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

Yes, you can use the menus on multiple sites.

When you compile your project for a Joomla site a zip file is created that you need to upload it to your Joomla site through our AllWebMenus Joomla Component. This file contains the JavaScript Files needed for the menu to work. I would recommend you not to edit those. If you need to have a Server-Side menu that you can edit and customize it according to your needs we have the Server-Side menu API. You can find more information here: http://www.likno.com/addins/dhtml-menu-serverside.html

server-side menu api

Yes, you can either set styling properties for all the menu items (main items, sub menu items and sub menu+ items) but you can also have specific styling properties for each menu item. So, yes you can definitely do that (have red Home item, blue About item and Orange Contact item).

different styling properties for each menu item

Please, let me know if you need further information.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: Question on AWM use on specific WordPress pages
Support Case Month: January 2014

I am currently using javascript driven drop-down navigation menus.
These will not work in Internet Explorer without a special line of code.
My menus will also not work on tablets or smartphones.
I need a CSS driven menu, but I also need a short learning curve and something that will adapt to my websites, which you can see by following the link in my signature.
I am hoping there is a way to create the menu in your system, have the ability to edit it as my client’s websites change, and copy and paste some code into the source code of my websites to make them work.
I am open to suggestions and your services.
John

Hello John,

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

AllWebMenus Pro is a well-known software for creating stunning menus (JavsScript/CSS) full of features. The most important part is that you don't need coding skills, as the software creates all the code you need. All menus produced by AllWebMenus Pro are going to work perfectly in all modern browsers (including Internet Explorer 11) and devices (tablets/smartphones).

I would recommend you to download AllWebMenus Pro (http://www.likno.com/download.html) and give it a try.

You create your menu, then you compile it and you link it to your pages. So,  you can either link the menu to your client's pages or copy the linking code and paste it to the pages you want it to appear.

According to your menu positioning settings, you may need to add 1 more line of code to your pages so that the menu will be linked.

By default a menu project is set to JavaScript. If you need it as a CSS menu you should select that to Menu Genre, as shown below.

CSS menu

If you select the CSS menu, the population of the menu items will be done using a UL/LI structure.

Clicking on Settings and then "<UL><LI> structure based on your current project's structure" you will see the structure for your menu. Copy that and paste it to your page.

menu structure code

Of course, do not hesitate to contact us in case you need further help.

Note also that we have more Web Design Tools (such as Modal Windows, Sliders, Tabs etc) that you might find useful as you create client's websites.

You may want to take a look here: http://www.likno.com/jquery-builders/examples.php?p=awm&e=htmlmenu (navigate through our examples).
