Support Case Month: May 2013

I have two or more scrollers in a web tabs, one scroller per tab, but the images in the scrollers only setup on the tab that is set to startup.  All the scrollers are set to "on Page Load".  How do I get the images to load on each of the tabs?

Dear Craig,

The best way for this to work, is if you make a separate html page for each scroller and then load them as “external URL” in the tab control.

Initial Email Subject: Google Maps in Web Tabs
Support Case Month: June 2012

Hi,

I'm trying to put a google map into a web tab. I've managed to get the map to appear, but it isn't resizing when the tab is activated.

I've done some extensive searching and have come across many different ways to solve it, but none of them seem to work.

So I'm wondering if you can tell me how I can get the map to automatically resize to fill the whole div container, when it's tab is activated?

Many thanks if you can solve this very frustrating problem for me.

Debbie

Dear Debbie,

Can you please send me an example? Please send me your Tabs project and the URL to see your test-page.

Hi Kostas,

Unfortunately, the website is still in development mode on my machine, so I can't give you an url to it.

Also, it's not actually a problem with the tabs project.  It's just that I can't figure out how to make a google map appear inside a tab correctly and was wondering whether you had come across this before and already had a solution to it.

The Google map js seems to be working OK, but the map itself appears as just a small square in the top left of the div.

By all accounts on the forums, this can be solved by triggering the map's resize event whenever the tab is activated.  So, what I need to know is how I can do that with your tabs.  It would need to be done dynamically, rather than included in the project, because only a few pages have a map, but the majority of pages would need to act normally.

Could you tell me how I could achieve this resizing event only on specific pages, please?

Warm Regards,
Debbie

Dear Debbie,

I am afraid that there is no way currently to make a JS call when the selected tab changes. I guess the best solution would be to use the “external url” and keep the google map in a separate page.

This way, the page will load into the tab only when it is shown for the first time and the map should appear properly.

Hi Kostas,

That's an interesting idea, but can you confirm whether I've understood you correctly?

Are you saying create another page and get the tab to call it when it is activated?  If so, does that mean it is opened in a frame or something like that.

I tried to use your Modal Windows Builder to call the google maps url last night thinking that could be a way to avoid using a tab.  Unfortunately, it seems that google don't like their pages being displayed inside a frame, because all I got was an error message to that effect.  Grrr, and I thought I was being smart.

Will you be including a way to get your tabs to perform a custom script when an event triggers in a future release?

Warm Regards,
Debbie

Dear Debbie,

Well, if Google Maps do not like being in a frame, then I guess my suggestion would not work.

Hi Kostas,

Anyway, I did manage to get the maps working by using your suggestion of creating a separate page that accepts the lat and long as parameters and linking to it using external url on the div of the first page.

So thank you very much for your suggestion, because I can now finally move on to the next part of the application.

Warm Regards,
Debbie

Steven
Initial Email Subject: Menu question? 
Support Case Month: November 2012

Hi,

I have several different Blogger sites and as you probably know, Blogger has  a very poor menu system and as far as I know, no way to interact with your software. Can I load your menu software on a separate site so that I can have a dedicated menu page, to connect to all of my different information at various url's? I currently have over 400 repair articles that need to be linked to a menu so they can be sorted by year, make, model, system and so on.
My plan would be to have a separate site with your software loaded on it to function as the menu page for all.

Steven

Hello Steven,

This is indeed a very good idea of yours. Please read the following instructions (let us know if you succeeded with this or need more help):

When the online website builder you are using does not let you upload any files or folders that you like to your online account, a major limitation is imposed to you for using javascript files (like our libraries or any other 3rd-party libraries) on your website.

However, there is a way to use your Likno compiled projects on your website provided that you have access to any other hosting environment that allows files to be uploaded and served (hotlinked) from there.

How this works:

1. Provided that you do have access to an alternative online host that can host and serve files/folders (allowing "hotlinking"), you can simply upload the compiled files and folder there:

For example, after you compile an "AllWebMenus" project, the following compiled folder is created (at the location you specified at "Project Properties").

This folder contains the compiled files.

Therefore, you upload those files and folder somewhere on your alternative hosting account (that should allow "public access" and "hotlinking" of these files).

2. The second step is to update the "src" parameter of the "Linking Code" that you added to your pages, so that it points to the compiled file (.js file) that is now located at the alternative host (using an absolute external URL, starting with "http").

For example, this is a change you should make (for the "Likno Web Accordion Builder", but the same applies to AllWebMenus):

FROM:

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">var lwacLinkedBy="LiknoWebAccordion [1]",lwacName="accordion_example_external_javascripts",lwacBN="116";</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="likno-scripts/accordion_example_external_javascripts.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->

TO:

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">var lwacLinkedBy="LiknoWebAccordion [1]",lwacName="accordion_example_external_javascripts",lwacBN="116";</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="http://www.alternativehost/youraccount/likno-scripts/accordion_example_external_javascripts.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR accordion_example_external_javascripts ******** -->

We are aware that this solution requires that you have access to an alternative host (while you already host your website somewhere else, but with file limitations) which you may not have. However, this is the only way to be able to run javascript files (like our libraries or any other 3rd-party libraries) on your website, since the online builder tool you are using imposes limitations on uploading such files on your website's file structure.

Hi Aris,

I am glad to hear that it will work. I do have a few more questions though. My understanding is that, the beauty of your software is that I would be using  simple editing tools. The code that you stated needed to include the full url, is that a one time thing for the Blogger site or does that apply to every single link to each and every article. I doubt that it would be hard either way but I am looking at building a menu for my sites that will cover at minimum 40 years of vehicles(eventually over a hundred years), hundreds of models and dozens of systems.

Currently I have over five hundred articles on my Blogger sites. I can deal with whatever I have to organize those and it seems your system will do that on a separately hosted menu site. Can the same menu be used for other articles that will be produced within the non Blogger hosted site? And not lose the links to the articles in the Blogger sites? In other words can I use the same hosted menu from your company to connect to my current Blogger sites and also going forward use the same menu for future articles that will be hosted on the non Blogger hosted site? I hope this makes sense.  It is much easier for me to speak and convey my thoughts than writing in an email.

Dear Steven,

This code is the “Linking Code” which is not related to the menu links. It is the code that links the whole menu to your pages and points to wherever you uploaded the menu compiled files. You need to add this in each of your pages (or simple in one include file such as a “header” or “footer” file of your template) and you need to do this only once.

I recommend that you find the template file for your articles and just add the code there once, this should suffice. After this, when you change the menu you just need to recompile it and upload the new files. No need to ever bother with this Linking Code again.

Finally, the menu can link to anything you want it to… As you will be editing the menu items and their links manually in the AllWebMenus application, there is no limit in what you can achieve.

Initial Email Subject: Accordion inside another accordion?
Support Case Month: May 2012

I am rebuilding a few websites for mobile applications (tablet and phones).  I am going to use the accordion builder as navigation for these projects.  I am wondering, is possible to place an accordion inside an accordion?  That is, an accordion panel opens and contains another set of accordion panels inside of it
Thanks for everything,
Kevin

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Kevin,

Yes, this is possible but in order to avoid problems you should have the “inside” accordions in separate pages that are loaded as “External URL”:

external url accordion

Initial Email Subject: Question about Tooltip-Builder
Support Case Month: August 2012

Hello Kosta!

A question about tooltip-builder …

As you can see on my website there is a link to a popup window (bottom of site – left “Besucher Seite”).

This PopUp window is a small php-site. inside there a database is asked about the actual visitors counts and the number will be displayed (with some other words …).

Is this possible to manage with your tooltip-builder? so replacing the ugly popup ???

Thanks
Regards,
Michael

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Sure! Just create the tooltip you want and add the URL as an “external” page:

tooltip: add url as an external page
