Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Initial Email Subject: use menu into a Java project
Support Case Month: June 2012

Dear Customer Support:

I want to use the menu into a Java project rather than a HTML page. Would you please provide me any learning material on how to corporate the likno menu into the JSP file? And in case in the menu linking, if I want to pass some parameter to some action, how can I do that?

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
Shen

Dear Shen,

There is no difference between Linking to an HTML file and a JSP file.

For passing parameters however, you would need to use some type of dynamic menu. There are a couple of ways to go about this:

1) You can use a UL / LI menu. This way, the actual menu structure is defined by a UL/LI structure in your page, and you can use your JSP to do whatever you want with it. You can read more about this here:

2) Use “Custom Variables”. With this method you need to create a JavaScript variable in your page (using JSP) before the menu Linking Code. Then in the menu item “link” property you can use this variable. To read more about this, while on the “text” or “link” property in AllWebMenus, press F1. Then go to the very bottom of the help page, and click on the “Custom Variables” link.

December 11th, 2012AWM: WordPress and AllWebMenus

Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Jim
Initial Email Subject: WordPress question before I buy
Support Case Month: May 2012

Hello,

I have reached the end of my patience with the lame WordPress native menu and I am looking for a quality alternative.

Can you clarify for me these things:

1) Only I (the publisher) need to have the desktop software installed (I assume to compile the menus), not each user (viewer) of the site, correct?

2) Are all of your attractive menu styles available for WordPress, or is it limited?

3) Is there any limitation on the number of menu and submenu items?

Thank you! 
Jim

Dear Jim,

1) Correct. Only the editor/designer of the menus needs to have AllWebMenus.

2) Yes, all the designs are available. Note however that if you want a dynamic menu (where the structure is defined in WordPress and not in AllWebMenus) then some Templates may not be available, but all the Themes will still available.

3) No, no limitations. Of course menus with hundreds or thousands of items may become slower (and yes, we do have  a few users with menus that have more than 1000 items).

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Best Regards,
Kostas

Initial Email Subject: Allwebmenus variable
Support Case Month: May 2012

I’m trying to pass a variable to a PHP file from allwebmenus.  Is this possible and if so How? 

Eric

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Eric,

Can you please give me some more info regarding your Use Case? Do you only want to pass a parameter from AllWebMenus to a PHP page, or do you also need to pass a different parameter depending on the current PHP page?

For example if you have a link like:

mypage.php?id=124

This is passing a parameter to the PHP page. Is the parameter value fixed though, or do you want the parameter value to be determined by the PHP?

If the second applies, then you basically need a “dynamic” menu. There are several different ways to achieve this:

1) Using the Server Side Menu API Add-in. This is the most powerful method as it lets you do anything you want, but it requires some programming knowledge as you basically have to build the menu yourself using JavaScript (that is typically generated by your PHP script). For an example of server-side menus, you can have a look here:

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

2) Using “Custom Variables”. This is probably the best option if you want only one (or a few) item to be dynamic. You can have a JavaScript variable in your page (e.g. “var myid = 124;”), which you can “write” with PHP, and then use this within AllWebMenus in the Link field value (e.g. “mypage.php?id=<awm:myid>”). You can read more about this method in the Help file if you search the Index for “Custom Variable”:

help custom variables

3) Using a UL/LI menu. This is an easy way to have a fully dynamic menu regarding the content (but it does not allow any customizations regarding the style). In a UL/LI menu, the structure, links etc. of the menu are not defined within AllWebMenus, but are instead parsed from a UL/LI structure in the page. Hence you could use PHP to write the UL/LI structure you want every time. For more details on this, please read the related Help section:

populate menu inside the page through ul li items

Let me know if you need more specific help with something.

Hey everybody,

We have released a new version of AllWebMenus Pro: Version 5.3 build #866.

Check out What's New:

- Improved iPhone support. Now if you "touch" an item with an open submenu, the submenu closes.

- Improved the behavior of "floating menus" so that their movement does not appear flickering.

- In "Link Compiled Menu..." the filetype dropdown box now remembers the last user selection.

- Added the ability to change the Start Menu group during the installation.

- Fixed an issue where the "Advanced Floating" feature with the "Instantly" option did not work properly. Also, changed the behavior so that if the "Floating Movement Ends" object doesn't exist in the page, the floating ends at the end of page.

- Fixed an issue where a warning appeared related to an "aRsF function" (Safari only).

- Fixed an issue where the "Unfolding effect" did not clip subgroups as it should (Opera 11+ only).

- Fixed an issue where the Generic Sitemap did not work properly. Also the default view changed.

- Fixed an issue where a group didn't appear on mouse over of parent item, if this item was auto highlighted without opening the group automatically on page load.

- Server-Side menus set to have "cursor: auto" now have "hand" instead of "arrow" for all dynamic items.

Download the new version at http://www.likno.com/download.html
