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

Support Case Month: February 2013

Hi Kostas,

I am pleased with the scroller that’s currently on {URL REMOVED} but need to change it from internal assets to an external xml file.

I have looked through your help section but can’t find anything that gives me any information on how to construct the xml file.

As you will see the scroller is used by an Estate Agent, so, being currently based on internal assets I have to continually amend the individual details of the frequently changing properties. I would like to automate this process, so I would guess that an xml file is the way to go.

I could perhaps arrange for an xml file to be constructed from the property database that the Estate Agent uses. The problem is that I don’t know how to write the xml file so that the scroller will display the information correctly. If I could see an example of an xml file, perhaps one that would give us a scroller that looks like the current one on the website with just 2 or 3 properties, I can then see what we need to do.

Are you able to help?

Kind regards,
Alec

Dear Alec,

I believe the best way to go would be to use the “DIVs” population method:

populate slider items through DIV elements

This way you will have the actual content inside your page, which will enhance SEO, and you can still generate it dynamically from a database.

If you go to your current project, change it to “DIVs” and go to the Sample Code tab (F4) you will see exactly what you need to add into your page for this to work.

Let me know if you need any specific help with the implementation.

Best Regards,
Kostas

I purchased an unlimited domain version the web API. We are coldfusion developers. I was hoping you would have some examples of coldfusion database integration that we could review to see what we are missing.

I have read though all documentation and the knowledge base without finding a successful solution.

Do you have any Coldfusion implementation coding examples?

Glenn

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Glenn,

I am afraid that we do not have any Coldfusion examples. However it should not be that much different than any other server-side language.

Did you see our VB/ASP/PHP example?

http://www.likno.com/addins/dhtml-menu-serverside-example.html

The main idea is to produce a specific JavaScript code that will create the menu. It does not matter which server-side language you choose to “write” these JavaScript commands!

Please have a look at the above example and if you need more help, let me know and also send me your existing ColdFusion code.

Best Regards,
Kostas

Hello Kostas,

How do I exactly use a menu dynamically, I mean populating it from database driven data? Also dynamically it can manage unlimited items/subitems or is there any restriction?

Many thanks for your very good support!

Paolo

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Paolo,

You need to use the "Server-Side Menus API":

http://www.likno.com/addins/dhtml-menu-serverside.html

Read the Help PDF (link there) for how to use it.

Please note that it is for advanced users and no implementation support can be given for free (because it requires programming focus, etc.)

We have no restriction on the number of items, unless the browser has problems with too many items.

Initial Email From:
Frank
Initial Email Subject: AWM with WordPress
Support Case Month: December 2012

Making good progress. Have two issues remaining:

1) The existing wordpress menu appears behind my AWM as a white box. Is there a way to remove the white box or WordPress menu (and keep the links to AWM)?  The white menu is not AWM, but WordPress. I've tried setting the menu background (in WordPress) to a transparent image, but that seems to be ignored and/or it doesn't expect transparency. At worst I can remake every AWM image to be larger so it covers the white background, but this is a minor pain. I had hoped AWM would "replace" the existing menu.

2) When you select a page, the old WordPress menu changed the color of the menu item to indicate you were in that page. For example, when at the Home page, the "Home" text was in a different color. With AWM there is no indication of what page you are in. Is there an option to handle this without having to add tags to every page in the site?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

1) You just have to disable the WordPress menu from WordPress. The AllWebMenus-WordPress plugin will take the menu structure directly from the database, regardless of the visibility status of the specific WordPress menu.

2) You can achieve this using the “Automatic Highlight” option:

automatic highlight menu option

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi,

I couldn’t find any way to disable the menu in WordPress (only delete). If deleted, only the AWM menu edges appear, but there are no AWM items to select. (I upload the AWM zip after each test, since it goes away when the menu is changed).

wordpress menu is not appeared properly

I partly solved it by using a transparent background on the theme’s menu and modifying the theme templete’s CSS (yes a bad way to do it, but I have no intention of loading any theme updates).  Image above has the transparency trick applied to get rid of the WordPress White menu background.  While the menu is really still there under AWM, it’s no longer seen except for a flicker of the selected menu item or if you hover near the bottom of AWM (since the old menu extends 5 pixels below AWM).  I guess I’ll look for the menu php code inside WordPress and try and modify it.  Are you aware of any other tricks to getting rid of the existing menu, yet having AWM work?

The auto-highlight option works great! Thanks.

Rather minor, but is there a way to have each button’s width set to a fixed size (but auto-adjusted to fill the total menu width)?  I see in Main Items Style, Size, it’s either Auto or a fixed value, but the fixed value is not an ideal way to do it.  I’m looking for some Global option to auto-adjust the size to fill the menu area BUT in a way each button’s width is the same. If there is no option for this, I can experiment with fixed size that gets it close to the full width.

samw width menu items

Best regards,

Frank

Dear Frank,

Regarding hiding the menu, you should be able to do this by simply not selecting any menu to show:

select no wordpress menu to show

Regarding the menu items having the same size, you can achieve this with the “Uniform Items” property inside the “Menu Type” options:

uniform property - same size menu items

Support Case Month: June 2012

Can the AllWebMenus Jooma Menu Component be used and have it generate a menu for the Virtuemart portion of the site?

We have version 1.1.15 AllWebMenus Jooma Menu Component installed but do not see how to use with Virtuemart - please avise.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am not familiar with Virtuemart. Does it generate a standard Joomla menu?

If so, then you should be able to select this menu within the AllWebMenus Joomla component.

If Virtuemart uses its own database and separate menu holding structure then I am afraid that you cannot use AllWebMenus to connect to it.

VirtueMart is a shopping cart component – I am not sure about  “separate menu holding structure” but I think it may – the menu is dynamically generated based upon categories / products added within the component – it is NOT managed via the Joomla “Menus” area.

Based upon the link here http://extensions.virtuemart.net/component/sobi2/?sobi2Task=sobi2Details&catid=11&sobi2Id=77&Itemid=2 I guess we assumed it would work with VirtueMart

Regards,
Matt

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Matt,

We were not aware that the VirtueMart guys had AllWebMenus in their list of extensions. It seems they found our Joomla solution and entered it there themselves.

We have now contacted VirtueMart asking them what the requirements would be for a component that would work with their system automatically generating menus.

Hopefully we will have a reply soon and will be able to offer a proper solution.

I will let you know as soon as I have something new.
