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


Initial Email From:
Claudio
Initial Email Subject: JavaScript function to trigger menu refresh.
Support Case Month: April 2013

Is there a JavaScript function I can trigger to force the refresh of the menu without having to refresh the page?

I am developing my first responsive menu, and the only solution that I could find to "wrap" the entire menu into a single button for the smartphone was to use jQuery to create another node in the <ul><li> structure for the menu.

It works! But the page needs to be refreshed.

I am open to other ideas and suggestions.  Do you have examples of other web sites that use your responsive menus that I can take a look at?  I have been using your product for many years and I don't mind adapting my design to fit your product specifications.

One more question related to Responsive Menus.

Please check in the iPad the link below.

  1. On portrait mode, select the menu option "Products", it should open the sub-menu.
  2. Leave the submenu open, and change the orientation to landscape mode.  The sub-menu remains open, but moves to Technical.

I would prefer that each time we change the orientation of the screen, the sub-menus would automatically close.

If you provide me the Javascript function that takes care of that, I can put in my code, but in this case I actually think should be default in the compilation of the AllWebMenu.

Hello,

I am afraid that there is no way to refresh the menu without refreshing the page.

The only solution I can think of, is if you put the structure within the application, in which case you are allowed to have a different structure for each responsive version.

This would work, but it does not support pure CSS menus which are based on the UL/LI method (nor menus with dynamic structure, as it has to be defined within the application).

Regarding the iPad submenu issue, I have forwarded it to our developer team and I expect a fix to be released soon (so that the submenus close).

Also please note that the feature you asked for in December (loading the UL/LI menu after the DOM loads) has been included in the latest version of AllWebMenus.

Thank you very much for your responses.  I understand the delay because I also deal with technical issues that sometimes they either pile up or take longer to resolve.

I am happy that the issue of December was resolved!  I will download the latest version and recompile some of my menus to test it.  Thanks for taking care of that.

Regarding the refresh of the menu, the problem I presented is not a deal breaker.  Unless you are in a demonstration showing how the web site is responsive, resizing the window, you will not encounter problems if you simply land in the responsive web site in a smart-phone, a tablet or a desktop.

However I would like to know what would be a good natural suggestion for dynamically UL/LI responsive menu.

In you example page:  http://www.likno.com/examples/responsive-menu-resize-page.html, if you think about it, it is not a practical solution.

The menu shrinks from one line (above 768px)  to two lines (between 480px to 767px), and finally to a vertical menu (below 500px).

The menu version for smart phones (below 500px) seems to have the menu aligned to the top-left corner to the window browser (I don't know how it was configured), and the content of the page inside div class=highlightBox is being squeezed to the side.  It's not a practical solution! 

By the way, the sample for the page http://www.likno.com/examples/responsive-menu-resize-page.html  should be in pure HTML5, using NAV for the menu....  just a suggestion.  Other web developers might want to see your code to copy your solution.

If you don't mind, I would like to discuss with you some suggestions to present to other programmers. I am not the type to spend time in forums and blogs, but I do like a technical challenge to be discussed directly with the solution provider.  I will be happy if I can help you improve your product, which I like and have been using for a long time.

  1. My solution in Paneltronics web site uses jQuery to dynamically create another UL/LI level to nest the entire main navigation inside a single list item.  The problem (not deal breaker) is the page refresh.
  2. Another option, that I have not thought thoroughly, is to put the AllWebMenus to work with two HTML containers:  Div1 (contains Menu button), NAV. 
    For desktop and tablet:  Div1 is set to display = none, NAV is set to display = block;
    For smartphones:  Div1 is set to display = block, NAV is set to display = none.  A simpler jQuery will toggle the display of the AllWebMenu...  
    ... is that an idea that works?  I will try it later (don't know when), and let you know.

Claudio

P.S.

http://2012paneltronics.atimo.us/AboutUs.asp?op=Snapshot

Please check the page above to see how I decided to implement the responsive menu for mobile.

I created the <div class="buttonR" id="menuButton">MENU</div> and I am using jQuery to toggle between displaying/hiding the menu.

Read my comments in green in the message below.

It's a simple solution and may work well.

Dear Claudio,

Nice one! Very clever workaround indeed.

So you are basically moving the Positioning Element of the smaller menu in and out of page and the menu follows that.

I will keep it in mind in case someone else has a similar issue. Also I have added the request to allow for a different UL/LI structure in each “version”. This is of considered a very low-priority for now, but it will be implemented eventually (especially if more people ask for it).

Thank you!

Don't worry about the low-priority issue.  I have my problem resolved.  Feel free to share this solution with whoever has the same situation.

Initial Email Subject: Internet Explorer V10 menus
Support Case Month: March 2013

Hello,

I want to buy the software, but I have to know before, FOR SURE, if it supports html5, modern browsers, and IE7 to IE10 (the same question for Likno Web Modal Windows Builder).

Also please inform if AllWebMenus works under a structure as:

<body>

<div id="inner">

<div id="outer">

<div id="Wrapper">  (positioning relative)

<here should be Likno menu> (positioning absolute)

I worked with Sothink DHTML Menu, that doesn’t support html5, and I have to switch to another software.

There is a starting sample at www.romtehnochim.com.

Thanks in advance,

Adrian

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Adrian,

Yes, AllWebMenus does fully support HTML5 as well as all the latest browsers and mobile devices.

It will work with every possible HTML structure so you do not have to worry about this. Just select the page Element that will be used for Positioning and your menu will be attached to it.

Also note that if you find any difficulties, we are always here to help you out.

I have been trying the preview version of IE10 on win7 - the font size seems to be bigger which forces longer menu items to split onto 2 lines, in Firefox and Chrome they are on 1 line. do you know if this will be corrected for the release ?

cheers .. Mike

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Mike,

I saw this issue even in IE9 in win7. This happens when the IE browser drops into "quirks mode" which is essentially IE5.5 mode.

And this happens because you do not have a valid DOCTYPE in your page.

Please try changing this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN"> <html><head>

With the default HTML5 DOCTYPE definition: 

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html><head>

thanks Kostas problem solved.

I remember now - using a 3.2 Doctype was the only way I could get my old version of Allwebmenus working with IE8 / 9, 848 I think.

cheers .. Mike

Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Accordion Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Bill
Initial Email Subject: font size in accordion builder
Support Case Month: November 2012

I am testing the trial version so there is no url at this point.

I'm trying to change the font size within all of the panes. Using the font-size property, i get no change in font size if I specify a font size of small or medium or whether I use 10px or 12px. The changes do show up in the preview screen in the tool but there is no effect in the browser. I am using Microsoft Web Expression as my primary web tool if that makes a difference.

Any help with this would be appreciated.

I'm a long time user of your allwebmenus product and look forward to working with this as well.

Regards, 
Bill

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bill,

This happens because you are using a table, which by default resets the font size when you do not have a valid DOCTYPE for your page.

Can you please try changing this:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">

<HTML>

With this:

<!DOCTYPE html>

<HTML>

The above is the standard DOCTYPE for HTML5. If for some reason you want to use the old HTML4 Transitional DOCTYPE, then use this instead:

<!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">

Well almost...
I'm not much at html coding so maybe you can see what's going on.
When I sub the changes (tried both) it gives me the results that you'll see at http://ocdirect.com/staging/faq_test1.html (no menu item for this one.)
If you compare it to the normal linked faqs page you can see that the page 'breaks'
I can't seem to find where the problem is coming from.
If you have any ideas on how I can get the page back to normal, I'd appreciate it.

Regards,
Bill

Dear Bill,

I found a couple of changes that will fix the problem. The whole brake is related to the last table row, so you will need to fix it there.

Please try changing this:

<tr>

                <td height="32" width="165"><img height="32" border="0" width="165" src="images/main_5.jpg"></td>

                <td height="32" background="images/main_6.jpg" width="558">

                <p align="center"><font size="1" face="Arial" color="#F7DA8A">Copyright &copy;

                2010-2012 Woodbine Hill Kennel</font></p></td>

                <td height="32" width="224"><img height="32" border="0" width="224" src="images/main_7.jpg"></td>

</tr>

Into this:

<tr>

                <td height="32" width="165"><img style="display: block;" height="32" border="0" width="165" src="images/main_5.jpg"></td>

                <td height="32" background="images/main_6.jpg" width="558">

                <p align="center" style="margin: 0px;"><font size="1" face="Arial" color="#F7DA8A">Copyright &copy;

                2010-2012 Woodbine Hill Kennel</font></p></td>

                <td height="32" width="224"><img style="display: block;" height="32" border="0" width="224" src="images/main_7.jpg"></td>

</tr>

Note that there is also a big difference between having a valid DOCTYPE or not, especially in IE:

If you have DOCTYPE, then the “width” and “height" you set in the CSS do *not* include the padding. If you have an invalid DOCTYPE (or none at all) then the padding is most likely included in the width/height.

This is in case you see other sizing issues elsewhere.

Kostas,

Thanks so much for your help with this. You pinpointed the problem perfectly. I've changed to the new code that you've been suggesting and everything works just great.
Thanks for hanging in there with me.
