Support Case Month: December 2013

I have created my menus in an old version of AllWebsmenu and then they wouldn't show up in google chrome or newer versions of IE.  So I have purchased your newest version of the program.  I put the menu in there and all looks fine in your program, but when I transfer the menu to the web the dropdown menus appear far over to the right of the menu and are unusable.  I've been messing around with the positioning to no avail and the help is not helpful.  I'm in style editor looking at main group and sub items style.  What is the correct command please to change make the menu appear correctly?

I have many menus to update.

Hello,

This happens because you have compiled your menu with the latest version of AllWebMenus Pro but you forgot to upload the awmdata folder.

menu library version

Please, upload the awmdata folder to your server. This should solve the problem.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Latest Firefox breaks AllWebMenus
Support Case Month: July 2013

Visit {URL REMOVED} in latest Firefox. Click any menu link, and observe that a duplicate menu bar appears at 0,0. This problem does not occur in latest IE, Safari, or Opera, and until recently was not appearing in Firefox!

Note if you go to the root of the site the problem is NOT visible! ??

I just updated to a recent build of AllWebMenus, about five weeks ago. ( to fix a different problem - disappearing menu bar in latest Safari)

Is this Firefox-specific problem addressed in the latest (July31) Build? I don't want to spend the time recompiling ( have to set up a new Windows machine to do that! ) if its not going to fix the problem.

If you know of a quick code hack fix, please advise. Thanks!

Hello Michael,

the inner pages (not the index one) do not use the "menu.js" file but the "engines/menu.js" file which is too old!

You need to change this.
Also, you have this 2nd menu reference which goes to a non-existed file, both in root and the other pages (with different path there).

While it does not affect the menu it is good to remove it because it triggers file not found errors to your logs.

Thanks Aggelos,

But if I overwrite the /engines/menu.js with the root one – then the extra menu bar goes away – BUT the menu drop-downs are then appearing at the extreme right side of the page.

Does this mean I need to recompile? ( I'm not familiar with this system at all…)

Best regards, Michael

Hello Michael,

If the menu in the page {URL REMOVED} is the correct one (which seems to be) then i would recommend you to change the inner pages where they call src='menu.js' to src='../menu.js' which means they will see the same menu as in {URL REMOVED}

Also, don't forget to remove those lines of code:

<span id='xawmMenuPathImg-menu_sub' style='position:absolute;top:-50px'><img name='awmMenuPathImg-menu_sub' id='awmMenuPathImg-menu_sub' src='awmmenupath.gif' alt='' width="1" height="1"></span><script type='text/javascript'>var MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [4]', awmBN='624'; awmAltUrl='';</script><script charset='UTF-8' src='menu_sub.js' language='JavaScript1.2' type='text/javascript'></script><script type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

Let me know if you need more information.

P.S. I am attaching you one of your pages i have saved and changed the code so it works as you expect. You can see the code.

Thanks Aggelos, that did the trick.

Inexplicably , I also found 12 files which referenced /engines/menu.js – cleaned those up too and all is well.

I very much appreciate your superlative tech support (a rarity, these days…)

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


Initial Email From:
Todd
Initial Email Subject:  Web Accordion Display Issue
Support Case Month: September 2013

Greetings!  I have a problem with Web Accordion.  The issue is demonstrated on the following page:  {URL REMOVED}.  I am seeking your assistance to know if this is a bug vs. something that I’m doing by somehow badly coding.

Walking past a co-worker's desk (using XP and IE 8), it would appear that:

1. An HTML bullet within an accordion pane appears to have become its own pane, and has replaced the separator (below in #2)

2. The separator that was between the 3rd and 4th pane has disappeared.

Using saucelabs.com, I was able to look at this page with different browsers and was able to confirm the issue first-hand.  I was not able to view this issue at my desk using Windows 7 with both Chrome 29.0.1547.76 m and IE 10.0.9200.16686

This is how it is supposed to look:
jquery accordion preview

Instead, the Web Accordion looks like this:

faulty jquery accordion preview

Thank you for your help!
Todd

Hello Todd,

Well, this happens because you have some extra </li> that you don’t need and as Internet Explorer is more strict in rendering content you see that problem there.

In order to correct that, you need to remove the 2 </li> shown in the screenshot below. Then, recompile your project and re-upload the produced files.

remove wrong code

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject:  Frames don't work in Mozilla Firefox
Support Case Month: September 2013

I created a menu that should bring up the page in a frame.  It works fine in IE but it does not work in Mozilla Firefox.  Is there something that I should be doing?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Judy,

I noticed that you have given "home" name to your frame. This is a native function of window thus it does not work on Firefox.

Please, rename your frame for example home2 and it should work.

Of course, you need to change the AllWebMenus project to show home2. Then, re-compile your menu project and re-upload all the produced files.

Thank you!
