How do I get the text to wrap so there is no scrolling within the panes?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I checked your page and I see that you do not have a DOCTYPE, so your page is not considered as valid HTML.

no DOCTYPE html

Please try adding this as the first line in your page to see if this fixes the problem:

<!DOCTYPE html>

Note that this may make other errors visible in your page. One such issue I noticed in my test was that your main image appeared broken:

broken main image

To fix this, add the following CSS: “display: block;”

You can either add this to the specific image:

<IMG style="display: block;" SRC="images/anniversary/images/anniversary-cars_01.gif" WIDTH=900 HEIGHT=131 ALT="">

Or if you want this for all images, you can add it to the <head> of your your HTML:

<style>img { display: block; } </style>

I understand this may be some work, but it is something you have to do anyway if you want your pages to validate and be HTML5 compliant.

Note, that if you want to avoid most of this work for now and simply fix the accordion issue, you can use an older DOCTYPE definition that will not change your page appearance, such as the following (note this also replaces the <html> tag):

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Good Morning,

I am having trouble with a web site that uses All Web Menus not displaying properly on iPads and iPhones. I have tried in the past to update the site to a current version of the AWM that supports this type of devices. However, when we view the site on these types of devices, we just see a blank space on the left side of the page where the menu should be.

Please advise.

Thanks,
Scott

Dear Scott,

I checked your site and the problem is indeed that you are using an older version. In this site you are using build 664 and in “{URL REMOVED}” for example you are using build 884 (which fully supports iPad/iPhone etc.).

Thanks, Kostas.  Can you please give me a few steps I need to take to update this site?  I think I’ve opened and edited this menu in the past using the 884 build.  Is there a file I can copy from one site to the other?  Or is there another way you’d recommend to update the site?

Thanks,
Scott

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Scott,

Just open the menu project with build 884 (or newer), Compile the menu and upload the “menu.js” and “awmdata” folder.

Support Case Month: January 2013

I use floating images in my menus.  They show up fine in IE but not Firefox.  The space for the image is there but the image is not.  It is like it is recognizing that there should be an image there but it will not display.  Can you tell me why?  The attached image shows the floated image and the properties for the floating image.
  menu problem

Thanks,
Matt

Dear Matt,
I see that you are using a very old version of AllWebMenus and it is very possible that this is the cause of the problem. I strongly recommend downloading, installing and (if required) activating the latest AllWebMenus version. Then recompile your menu with this and upload the compiled menu file and menu library folder (“main_menu_top.js” file and “awmData-main_menu_top” folder).

Thank you.  I did not realize the link to the index page needed to be re-built.

Initial Email Subject: Menu not displaying in IE8
Support Case Month: January 2013

I've generated a menu using the latest version and update of AllWebMenus in the website {URL REMOVED}.  However, the menu does not seem to display in IE8.  All I see is a white, blank space at the top of the page, just above the collage of photos.
There is also a little "Error on page" icon at the bottom left, that when clicked, says "Object doesn't support this property or method" and refers to Line 10 in the awmlib1.js file.
It seems to work fine in all other browsers, however, there seems to be a few people who are friends with the owner of the website who are using IE8 and can't see the menu.  Any ideas how to resolve this issue?
Thank you

Hello,

The problem is caused by your Positioning Code. Specifically it seems that you have given the same id (“awmAnchor-menu”) to two elements in your page.

This is considered invalid HTML as the id of each HTML element must be unique. Most browsers correct this by keeping only the first instance, however IE prefers to just ignore all instances, hence the menu does not find the Positioning Element to attach to.

Please correct this by removing the duplicate ID.

I 've been using web menus for over a decade and am very pleased with it. My question is I noticed that the menu doesn't display on my friends internet explorer browser though it shows on mine. What would be the cause

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

It appears that the menu on your website was compiled with an *old* version of AllWebMenus (see “release history” here: http://www.likno.com/whatsnew.html ).

You need to update/upgrade your AllWebMenus and re-compile/re-upload your menu files, as the *old* compiled menu cannot support the latest browsers and standards. Some browser versions did not even exist by that time (e.g. IE9 was officially released in March 2011).

How?

- Login to your Likno User Area at http://www.likno.com/userarea

- Click the "View/Manage Licenses and Plans":

view manage menu licenses

- See there if your Update Plan has expired or not.

            If "expired" then click the "Renew" link and renew your Update Plan.

- Download the current Version (Build) ( http://www.likno.com/download.html ) and install it.

- In your Likno User Area, click the "Get Activation Code" link and get a new Activation Code for this updated installation:

get activation code

- Open your old project file (.awm) in AllWebMenus, re-compile it and then upload the new menu files (along with the "awmdata" folder) to your website.

Note that you may need to delete your browser’s Temporary Internet Files (or cache files) before refreshing the page in order to see the menu.

Thanks!
