Support Case Month: January 2014

If you have several menus with the same template, it seems obvious you can share the images library, but can you share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2).  For each template project structure, let’s say blue and red, should blue have its own Javascript library and red has its own?  If blue has several menus based on the template, can those several menus share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2)?  Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, you can have many menus that can share the same library files (awmlib0.js, awmlib1.js and awmlib2.js). You can set your menus to point to the same awmdata folder.

This is the optimal as you don't need to have the same files multiple times on your server.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject:  Location of site root folder
Support Case Month: July 2013

Guys,

To avoid two stepping, we are compiling directly to a target web folder.  That folder is on a web share that we would like to map using UNC mapping, but the site root folder utility won’t let us use UNC mapping.

We are hosting the saved .awm files on a file share.  A group of developers (each with their own local install of your software) opens the .awm files to modify, but the way that this is currently working we have to make sure that every developer that uses the .awm file has the target web share mapped to the exact same drive letter (W: in the example).

It would be far better for us if we could enter the target drive using UNC format to make the mapping universal rather than as a drive letter.

Hello Mark,

I understand what you mean, I will forward this to the developer in charge. He is on vacation this week, so I will have news next week on that.

Are you sure you cannot see the network folders under the "Network" option?

See below for example, how I chose the "\\Leonardo\_temp" UNC folder when I clicked the "edit" link:

network path as site root folder

Also, there is an alternative way to do this.

Enter an arbitrary local Site Root folder, save the project, close AllWebMenus and open the .awm in a text editor. Search for that arbitrary Site Root folder:

manually change the network path for site root folder

… and replace it with your UNC.

Support Case Month: May 2013

Getting this error when trying to compile for a second time.Created a menu and it compiled fine the first time.  Now on subsequent tries I get the File/Path Access error...as if I don't have permissions to overwrite those files that AllWebMenu 5 Pro created. I am and admin and created this folder in subfolder off my Documents folder.Not using any editor/plugin as I'm using Komodo for html editing.I can delete other files in this folder just not the menu files.Running Windows 8.

Hello,

Did you try deleting the files manually? If you are not able to do this, then it means that you indeed do not have enough permissions. Then only reason I can think of (and this is far-fetched) is this:

You installed AllWebMenus and run is straight from the installer, so it run “as administrator”. Now you are logged in as a user with super-user (but not real admin) permissions and you cannot remove the files of another user (the admin). I recommend that you try running AllWebMenus “as administrator” and see if can then overwrite the files it created.

Please let me know how this worked out.

I did try and delete them manually...no go.

I decided to just duplicate my website folder and compile new into that.

It worked and more importantly it worked when I did a second compile...no error.

So not sure what the deal was with that one folder/files but hopefully I'm okay now.

Thanks

Hello again,

I am glad everything works in the new folder.

Regarding the old folder, you can try opening a Windows Explorer “as administrator” and using this to delete it.

Let me know if you run into any more problems.

Initial Email Subject: storing themes
Support Case Month: May 2013

Hello,

I have All Web Menus installed on my C: drive, which is getting quite full. I also have a huge secondary drive. Is it possible to move all of the themes and their related graphic elements to this other drive and then simply tell the program where to find them?  How would that be accomplished.

thank you much,

Linda

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Linda,

AllWebMenus is a pretty light-weight application. The whole installation takes up about 36 Mb of which 12.3Mb is for the Themes. As such,  I do not believe that you will solve any problems by moving these to a separate drive.

Still, if this is what you want to do, then I recommend that you uninstall AllWebMenus and install it again in a new drive altogether! Note that this is something you should be able to do with most applications. During the installation you are asked at some point which folder you want the application to be installed in. There you can select your second hard disk.

Let me know if you find any problems.

Best Regards,
Kostas

Help,

It has worked for years and the menu disappeared from the home page.

Advice please.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

It seems that you moved your menu files (or HTML files) around and this confused the Linking Code (see the “src” parameter).

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus linking code section must always 
be placed right AFTER the BODY tag-->
<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="horzmenu",awmBN="904";
</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="{MENU.JS PATH}" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->

Please make sure that your menu files are properly located locally and that your Root Folder setting is correct:

menu site root folder settings

If asked to “update the links”, do *not* do this as it will probably mess things up.

Then re-Compile and re-Link your menu to your pages and upload them again.

The Linking Code should now look more like this:

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus linking code section must always 
be placed right AFTER the BODY tag-->
<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="horzmenu",awmBN="904";
</script>
<script charset="UTF-8" src="/horzmenu.js" type="text/javascript">
</script>
<script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR horzmenu ******** -->

Note that once you fix this, then every time you change something in the menu you only need to Compile and upload the menu files (“horzmenu.js” and “awmdata” folder). You do *not* need to Link and upload your pages.

Best Regards,

Kostas
