Is it possible to have the menu open the page in a div instead of an iframe or frame? Trying to have a page where the header does not refresh but iframe and frames are limited in expansion etc unlike Divs..please advise.

Thanks,
Linda

Hello Linda,

You are able to link to DIVs. You can select the menu item you want and go to Link property, there you can place the #{the DIV id you want to link}

So, clicking on this item, it will move to the beginning of the DIV with the ID you have specified.

menu link property

You may also want to set your menu as a floating menu, so that it stays as sticky on top of the window (or where you place it).

Please, let me know if I can be of further help.

Thank you.

Support Case Month: July 2013

Hi everybody

My name is Peter, also known as Dr. Z. I'm in the process of updating the visual appearance of our website.

A website was developed in Dreamweaver with Firefox in 1998 through 2000.
I've not been able to use the AllWebMenus with the Dreamweaver templates which our website is based on.
As you can see, currently I'm positioning the menu below the main image on the page.

That works quite nicely as you can see here on the test server {URL REMOVED}
the currently functioning website is {URL REMOVED}

The only problem is: different folders have different main images with different image names.

Is there a solution to this?
In other words can I position the menu on different pages relative to different images?

If the answer is yes, please tell me how to do this.
I've tried to position the menu relative to a page element in the Dreamweaver template.

Every time I do that, most of the template somehow disappears.

This may have to do with the fact that there  are no body tags  in the template.
Please respond to me soon... I hope this is solvable.

Hello Peter,

As I see in your new page the whole page is based in this table:

<table width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" bordercolor="#000000" 
border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" align="center">

My recommendation would be to position your menu based to this, which I guess is the same in all of your pages. Give this table an ID and set the proper menu positioning in AllWebMenus.

For example:  In menu positioning select the default ID and then set the offsets of your desire to fit your design and then your code should have this ID

<table id="awmAnchor-menu" width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" 
bordercolor="#000000" border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"  align="center">

menu positioning

Or you could do that with another element that will be in all of your pages.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Hi Aggelos,

Thanks for your help.

So basically I followed your advice and inserted a table with the menu ID in the Dreamweaver template.
It works well.

Thanks very much.

My best,
Peter

Support Case Month: July 2013

I assume I am able to hide a menu item or menu group via external javascript function so I can display just the items/groups based on the web page.  Can you send me an example of how to do that?
Thank you.
Mike

Hello Mike,

First, thank you for your interest in our Likno products.

I believe that the Server-Side Menus API is what you are looking for:

Also click the "Example" link:

Thank you.
I don't have a need at the moment to build the menu dynamically.  I want to build a complete static menu but then hide parts of it depending on the page the user is on.  My hope is that there is a javascript call to hide an item or group by ID?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Mike,

Another way to achieve what you want is to use the "UL/LI" population method (see below). In that case, you can hide/show any UL/LI items (menu submenus and items in other words) you wish. I believe this is the way to go:

Support Case Month: July 2013

Hi Guys,

Please would you have a look at this menu project file and the DreamWeaver template page and let me know why this menu is not showing?

I have included the Dreamweaver template page in the zipped project file.

Much Appreciated

Brent

Hello Brent,

The problem is the menu positioning. You have set the menu to be positioned relative to an element that has the class="drcammenu" but in your template you have no such element. Instead, you have an element with this name but on ID. (as seen in screenshots below).

Please, change the positioning of your menu to be relative to this element but ID instead of a class. Recompile it and it will be fine.

Let me know if you need any more help.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: March 2013

HI Kostas,

I purchased the new version, but I am having a problem with the linking.

Is the linking any different when using DIV tags in which I gave an ID to?

Here's what I did...

I got a new menu, made all changes, told it where to store the root folder, compiled the menu, took the ID form the menu position, awmAnchor-menu and placed it in a DIV tag that I gave an ID name of nav_bar <div id="nav_bar" awmAnchor-menu></div>

The menu showed up on my page, but as soon as I added the awmAnchor-menu to my page it never came back.

Here is a link to my test site:

{URL REMOVED}

Also, I attached the menu that I saved. It's just a rough copy.

I think I did everything correctly, the only thing that sticks out is that the help files show an ID given to the awmAnchor-menu, <div id="awmAnchor-menu"> &nbsp; </div>

and I gave the DIV that I am placing the menu in and ID name of nav_bar

Should I name the DIV awmAnchor-menu, and if so where do you place the awmAnchor-menu in the DIV?

Please let me know,

Thanks Again!

Robert

Dear Robert,

The problem is indeed the ID of the DIV where you want to put the menu.

You need to do one of the following two things:

1) Leave the AllWebMenus Positioning as it is, and change the DIV in your page from:

  <div id="nav_bar" awmAnchor-menu></div>

To:

  <div id="awmAnchor-menu"></div>

OR

2) Leave the DIV in your page with its current ID (but cleanup the “awmAnchor” part):

  <div id="nav_bar" ></div>

and change the AllWebMenus Positioning to use this DIV instead:

Hi Kostas,

Thank You! Works Perfect!

I read about that but then I recall it recommended to keep it the same.

Anyway, it works!

Thanks Again!

Robert
