Support Case Month: March 2014

I created a dynamic menu for Joomla with the menu positioned by  a div element (#page). The menu displays correctly in Firefox 27.0.1, IE 9 but not in Chrome. It displays about 28px higher than where it needs to be. I also tried to position relative to a image with the same results. Help!

Hello Steve,

Please, remove that specific offset Y for the Chrome.

menu specific offsets

Then, re-compile your menu project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

Please, let me know how that worked for you.

Thank you.

Menus look fine in IE, Safari & Chrome, but in Firefox they are shifted up about half their height.  Can't find a solution.  Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hello Mark,

You have successfully compiled your menu project with AllWebMenus v.5.3.932 and you have uploaded that.

However, you forgot to upload the awmdata folder which contains the new library files.

menu library file

Please, upload the awmdata folder with the new files produced after you compiled the menu. This should solve the issue.

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

Thank you.

Aggelos,

Thank you for the quick reply.  Updated the library file, but still getting the same affect.

Hello Mark,

The issue on Firefox is caused because you have used <span> elements as your menu positioning elements. Firefox renders those in a different way than the other browsers.

Right now you have:

menu positioning element

menu positioning element

Change the above positioning element from span to DIV:

menu positioning element DIV

menu positioning element DIV

This should solve the issue.

Please, let me know how that worked for you.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,

Bravo Aggelos!!

FYI - I'm using Dreamweaver CS4 with the AWM plugin.  When I place a menu on a page using the AWM "Position Menu", menus are placed in a <span> tag.

Thank you again for finding the solution.

Mark

Initial Email Subject: drop down menus don't appear in the right place
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…)
