Support Case Month: May 2012

Hi,

I have a website that has a menu created using an older version of AllWebMenus Pro, specifically "DHTML Menu Created using AllWebMenus PRO ver 5.2-#806.   I need to update the menu to work with modern browsers including Safari.  Unfortunately the original developer is no longer around, and we do not have access to the menu project files. Once we purchase the latest version of AllWebMenus Pro, could you tell me what theme was used to create the menu for this site, www.esp-inc.com?   I've looked through the examples and could not find one that looked exactly the same.

menu theme

Thank you,

Simon

Dear Simon,

It looks like the “Meltingbar” theme, which is in the default horizontal themes included with the application.

However it seems that you used only the submenu styling and not the main menu styling. This can be easily achieved if you select the specific theme and then copy-paste the style in the Style Editor:

(use right-click)

copy menu style values

paste menu style values

sub group copy style values

paste style values

Thank you very much for the detailed response.  I was going to mention "Meltingbar" looked similar - thanks for giving me the workaround.

Best regards,

Simon

Dear Daniele,

You can create such a menu with AllWebMenus. This is a menu builder for dhtml/javascript/css menus (not flash).

It is a stand-alone application but it also includes a Dreamweaver plugin for easier integration with your site.

You can check it out here:

Initial Email Subject: Text wraps in menu items
Support Case Month: October 2012

The text in the top level menus wrap.  For example for the menu item "Free & Trial Software" I get
Free &
Trial
Software
when the menu is displayed in IE8. 
I am not using HTML text.
If I tell menu to use full width, wrap goes away (this is not an acceptable solution).  How do I prevent the text wrap?
After further testing with above link, you may have to change font size or % size to see the wrap.  The Apycom DHTML Menu we are trying to replace with your product does not have this wrap problem.

Hello,

I checked your page and it seems the problem is caused because you do not have a valid DOCTYPE in your page.

This causes IE to go into the so called “quirks mode” which is essentially IE5.5 Compatibility Mode.

Please try replacing this:

<html>

With this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>

SWFObject is a commonly used JS library for instantiating Flash objects universally.  Flash objects are considered to be “windows” on top of the browser and this is why they cover the submenus by default. This can be easily changed however. SWFObject offers two distinct methods to embed Flash Player content:

  1. The static publishing method embeds both Flash content and alternative content using standards compliant markup, and uses JavaScript to resolve the issues that markup alone cannot solve.
  2. The dynamic publishing method is based on marked up alternative content and uses JavaScript to replace this content with Flash content if the minimal Flash Player version is installed and enough JavaScript support is available (similar like previous versions of SWFObject and UFO).

If you use the static publishing  method you just have to add the transparent parameter in SWFObject.  For example if the code of  SWFObject looks like the following:

<script type="text/javascript">

var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "200", "100%", "7", "#336699");

</script>

you have to add the following line of code:

so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");

so that your code look like the following:

<script type="text/javascript">

var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "200", "100%", "7", "#336699");

so.addParam("wmode", "transparent");

</script>

If you use the dynamic publishing method you need to apply the transparent parameter too. In this method you use the embedSWF function so as to embed your SWF with JavaScript. The definition of embedSWF is the following: swfobject.embedSWF(swfUrl, id, width, height, version, expressInstallSwfurl, flashvars, params, attributes, callbackFn) where:

  1. swfUrl (String, required) specifies the URL of your SWF.
  2. id (String, required) specifies the id of the HTML element (containing your alternative content) you would like to have replaced by your Flash content.
  3. width (String, required) specifies the width of your SWF.
  4. height (String, required) specifies the height of your SWF.
  5. version (String, required) specifies the Flash player version your SWF is published for (format is: "major.minor.release" or "major").
  6. expressInstallSwfurl (String, optional) specifies the URL of your express install SWF and activatesAdobe express install. Please note that express install will only fire once (the first time that it is invoked), that it is only supported by Flash Player 6.0.65 or higher on Win or Mac platforms, and that it requires a minimal SWF size of 310x137px.
  7. flashvars (Object, optional) specifies your flashvars with name:value pairs.
  8. params (Object, optional) specifies your nested object element params with name:value pairs.
  9. attributes (Object, optional) specifies your <object>'s attributes with name:value pairs.
  10. callbackFn (JavaScript function, optional) can be used to define a callback function that is called on both success or failure of embedding a SWF file

So if the code of your SWFObject looks like the following:

<script type="text/javascript">

swfobject.embedSWF("myswfobject.swf", "mycontent", "935", "300", "9.0.0");

</script>

you have to replace it with the following one:

<script type="text/javascript">

var expressInstallSwfurl = {};

var flashvars = {};

var params = {wmode:"transparent"};

var attributes = {};

swfobject.embedSWF("myswfobject.swf", "mycontent", "935", "300", "9.0.0", expressInstallSwfurl, flashvars, params, attributes);

</script>

By adding the transparent parameter as described above, the submenus will always appear above SWFObject objects on all browsers.

After you have installed your AllWebMenus Pro application, you need to activate it in order to get the full functionality; otherwise it will be in trial mode!

To activate AllWebMenus Pro you need to get an Activation Code based on the Installation ID of your application. To get an Activation Code, you have to log in to your Likno User Area account and click on the related link of the AllWebMenus section (see the image below):

Then you will be directed to a page where you will have to choose your license and enter the Installation ID so as to get the Activation Code. Please make sure that you have chosen the correct license, namely the license whose the Installation ID you are using (see the image below). If  you try to get an Activation Code for a license different from the installed one you will get an error message which will inform you that your installation is not valid and you will not be able to activate your application.

To get your Installation ID and enter it in the input field (see image above), you have to go to "Help -> Enter Activation Code" menu of your AllWebMenus application.

This is where you will also paste the Activation Code (that you got from the online page) and click the Activate button (see image below):

Well done! This successfully activates your AllWebMenus installation.

Note: You must have "full" admin rights to be able to activate your application. Such rights are not required for working with AllWebMenus, they are needed only for the activation process. So, if a Windows popup appears you need to allow AllWebMenus to make changes (this gives "full" admin rights).
