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.

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

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

Good morning!

I am responsible for a website (URL REMOVED) that was created for us using WordPress. The site is for the general public to find information on us.

Now we are wanting to add something new—a private section of pages that only our missionaries would access. I know I can hide the pages from the WordPress menu; I’ve done it for a couple pages already. But, is it possible to use an AWM menu on *just* the group of hidden pages? In other words, the general public would only see the WordPress menu for the public pages. Our missionaries, when they would come to the hidden pages, would see a separate AWM menu for just the hidden pages.

Is that possible?

I also support several other websites (see below in my signature) that I’ve created in NOF. I use the NOF “hide from navigation” option to hide the main page, and that allows all the sub-pages below it to also be hidden, but have a menu. I don’t care for the clunkiness of the NOF menus; would AWM allow me to do what I want?

Thanks for your help!
Neil

Hello User,

Hmm…one idea would be to have 2 menus on your WP site so you can select 2 menus in AWM WP plugin, one that will be for the public areas and one for the admins.

You can set the menu positioning method to "Theme menu location" for example on your AWM WP plugin settings and then you can edit the file that should contain your menu, most probably the header.php file of your template. You could check if a user is logged in then serve the menu that is for logged in users if not then serve the public menu.

You may want to see more info on how to check If a user a logged in:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_user_logged_in

Please, let me know how that could work for you.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: Sharing Javascript & Image Libraries
Support Case Month: January 2014

If you have several menus with the same template, it seems obvious you can share the images library, but can you share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2).  For each template project structure, let’s say blue and red, should blue have its own Javascript library and red has its own?  If blue has several menus based on the template, can those several menus share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2)?  Thank you.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Yes, you can have many menus that can share the same library files (awmlib0.js, awmlib1.js and awmlib2.js). You can set your menus to point to the same awmdata folder.

This is the optimal as you don't need to have the same files multiple times on your server.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: Spacing between horizontal menu items
Support Case Month: February 2014

Hey guys:

I'm working in a simple horizontal menu that will have the following five menu items with no submenus

They are:

Home  About Us  Products  Liquor  Contact Us

I would like them to be all spaced the same distance, meaning I would like the About Us item to appear 10 pixels after the 'e' in Home, and the Products item to appear 10 pixels after the 's' in About Us ... &c

However when I set it up, it looks like this:

     Home     About Us  Products     Liquor   Contact Us    (Note the spacing)

It seems the size of each item is being driven by the largest text as apposed to each individual text.

How do I get the menu to have each item only as wide as the text in it plus a set spacing?

Thanks

Mike

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Mike,

Please, click on Menu Type and uncheck the "Uniform Items" property. This is what makes the menu all the items to have the largest item width.

uniform menu items

Then, you need to re-compile your project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

If the above is not your case, 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.

Initial Email Subject: menu sound effect
Support Case Month: February 2014

Can I add a sound effect to a button when you slide your mouse over it?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

I am afraid this will not be possible or not easy to be done.

You may want to read that support case: http://www.likno.com/blog/can-add-sound-on-menu-click/3738/

And maybe this: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5255160/button-hover-sound-using-html5-audio

However, I think this would not be a good choice, as sounds will increase your page loading time and the majority of users find it annoying. As I have read this is not considered as a good practice. Think of  a user visits your page by his work PC and when he tries to hover over your menu some sounds start playing…if he has speakers the most probable is that will feel uncomfortable and leave the page.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.
