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

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

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

It's great that your program offers so many font selections. Only, most browsers don't support them.
Is there a way to have the menu save the font as a graphic (or something like that) so it can override the browser default?
Thanks,
Steve

Dear Steve,

No, I am afraid that this is not possible.

AllWebMenus will show fonts that are installed in your PC. You can either:

1) Choose standard fonts that are available in most PCs and also set fallback fonts in case they do not exist

2) Make images with the text using a graphic editor (such as “Paint”) and then load the images into the menu

3) Use a font library such as Google Web Fonts that will show a “funky” font in any PC (you should also use fallback fonts with the same size here to avoid possible menu sizing issues)

Kostas,

Ah… As you might have guessed by now I don't give up that easily.

Here's what I did.

I wanted "Arial Narrow" for my font which is not supported by all browsers.

First, I created my own font family and put it in my "style.css" file, which looks like this:

===========================================

@font-face {

    font-family: narrow_font;

    src: local(narrow_font), url('fonts/ARIALN.TTF') format('opentype');

}

===========================================

Then, copy the "Arial Narrow" font .ttf file to a folder on the website called "fonts".

Next, I selected "Arial Narrow" in AWM as my font then made a custom font group so there were fall backs (just in case it didn't work).

That group looks like this:

===========================================

"Arial Narrow", narrow_font, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif

===========================================

Now, if someone's computer actually has "Arial Narrow" installed on their computer, it will use that. Otherwise, next it will use my custom font family and pull the font from the "fonts" directory on the server.

Good job!

The menu looks good in all my browsers.

Initial Email Subject: menu color change
Support Case Month: December 2012

Greetings, I have an existing menu that is currently being used inside my online software application (not my URL). We have made some changes to my application's webforms and I would like to just change the color of the menu I am using. Currently it is red, i'd like the exact same menu in black without have to create a whole new one from scratch. Can you assist me? I can send you the AWM file if you wish or send you a screen shot.

Thank you,
Bob

Dear Bob,

If your menu is text-based, then it should be really easy to change it by selecting the appropriate colors in the style editor.

If on the other hand it is image-based, then you need to change the actual images in a graphic editor.

Initial Email Subject:  pic error showing up in all browsers but Firefox
Support Case Month: April 2012

I am having a problem with a floating menu. The graphic on the floating menu shows an error tag in every browser but Firefox. I don't know if this is a bug or if there is something I can do to fix it.

Hello,

I tested your page in various browsers, and I did not see any errors related to AllWebMenus. The only error I saw was for “MagicThumb”, and this appeared in all browsers (including Firefox).

If you however you get an “image not found”, then please make sure that the following file exists online:

http://kreativeteens.communityvaluecard.com/floating_menu/awmdata/dot.gif

This file should be generated when compiling the menu and forgetting to upload it may cause a “missing image” graphic.

Support Case Month: September 2012

Hi,

I am, working on a sharepoint site.

seems that it wont allow any graphics, png, jpeg or otherwise.

however, the code works on the page without the graphic, I simple show a square area where the graphic should be.

I would prefer to have a simple scripted button in html, simple block, color, rollover color, I don't want it to be a graphic, it wont work...

just need a simple button, that I can navigate to another page, css simple button.

I paid for your software in hopes that it might work,  however It does not,I just need a simple css button... is this possible? can you show or send me a script? I am under a deadline and I have to have this solves asap.... now.. please help, thanks

Hello,

I am afraid that Button Maker does not produce plain CSS buttons. If you want we can probably send you some custom code for this, but I believe we should first see why the images don’t work!

Normally you should not have a problem with images, so maybe something went wrong. Can you please send me the URL of a page where the image buttons don’t work so that I can have a look?

Hi Kostas,

Thanks for getting back to me.

The problem is I am working with SharePoint Server/Designer building custom pages.

The customer/vendor I am working for has every security feature locked down in sharepoint server. So no custom code, no graphics on buttons, or activex.

The only thing I can do is create CSS Buttons with typical background colors, fonts, shapes.  Also,  it would be great if the code generated could be of inline style (Self Contained)  for each button… (I hope this makes sense?)

I really like the program,  very well done,  just in this case with everything locked down when I go to attempt to use these buttons and save with sharepoint designer.(Have to use this.. no other choice)  it strips out the button image, and function,   leaves me with an empty clear box with a working link.

Hope this is helpful,  if you could send some custom code, or update, ideas?,   I would be grateful.

Thanks

John

Dear John,

If you are forced to work in such a restricted environment, then indeed there is no way for us to work around it.

In this case you’ll need to create a CSS design yourself, with plain colors and maybe rounded borders.

An example of such buttons would be:

<style>
    .myButtons {
               
border: #000066 2px solid;
       
        border-radius: 10px;
               
background-color: #BBBBFF;
       
        color: #000066;
               
padding: 2px 5px;
       
        text-decoration: none;
          
    }

    .myButtons:hover {
                    
border-color: #0000DD;
             
        background-color: #CCCCFF;
                
    }
</style>

<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Home</a>
<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Products</a>
<a href="mypage.html" class="myButtons">Support</a>

Of course you will have to change the colors etc.

Hey Kostas,

I think this might work.

I am having a problem in trying to figure out how to write css code that would apply to strictly each button and or each page.( as I remember inline styles cant have any button hover functions).

The problem I am having in writing this CSS code is when placed in my page the buttons grow/shrink width wise depending on the length of the text so my buttons are never the same widths.  They absolutely have to all be the same widths and I can’t figure out how to make this happen.

Hopefully your solution will work for me.

Thanks very much

John

Dear John,

I believe you need to refresh your CSS with a bit of reading through the site I sent you. Smile

In order to force a specific width, just add the following line in your “myButtons” CSS rule:

width: 100px;

Also, as you said, inline styles cannot account for hover functions. This is why you should use “CSS classes” instead as per my example. Note that you can have multiple classes for differently styled buttons, and you only need to add:

class="myclassname"

to each of your DIVs to turn them into a button.
