Support Case Month: April 2013

Hi Kostas,

My new main nav bar works in IE but it goes off the page in Firefox?

The site is live now. I never had a problem with it fitting. I did add one ore menu item, but I played around and it fit fine. I never had your program give me this kind of error, it always seem to work across all browsers.

What do you think it could be?

Please let me know.

Thanks,
Robert

Dear Robert,

I checked your page in various browsers and I see that this happens in most browsers, even in older versions of IE.

The reason your menu fits in IE9+ is that IE has a special font rendering engine that makes fonts a bit smaller in width.

The solution is to make your menu smaller (e.g. by removing 1-2 pixels from the empty space between each item pair) and then set the minimum width to 940px in order to make sure that it has the same size in all browsers.

Support Case Month: March 2013

In IE10 i see that in any of the menus where the menus/items have transparent backgrounds – the transparency is gone and the background shows as a default grey color.

The horizontal length of some of the menus becomes longer in IE10 and is correct in IE9

Any advice would be appreciated Kostas…

Thanks,
Pesi

Dear Pesi,

Regarding “{HOME PAGE URL}”, indeed the menu becomes a bit wider, but this is because of the way IE10+ renders fonts (the so called “cleartype”) which is wider than usual for specific fonts.

Regarding the transparency issue, I have checked our database and noticed that there was a fix for something similar in build 902. I have extended your Update Plan up to mid-January so that you will be able to get this version and see if it resolves any remaining issues. Please download this from your User Area account (and get a new Activation Code to pass the new license info).

Initial Email Subject: Menus and iPad
Support Case Month: February 2013

My client's website that uses menus created from AllWebMenus v 5.3 are not working in Internet Explorer as a rule and attempts on an iPad don't seem to work no matter what browser is tried.

I did notice that the software says V53. Build 884 and in my test folder one of the awmdata files says build 818 in it.

Any issues with iPads showing your menus?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Build 884 does support all the latest browsers and mobile phones. However, build 818 is much older and indeed does not support IE9+ or Safari 5.

Moreover, if you have your menu (“menu.js”) compiled with one version and the libraries (“awmdata” folder) with another, this can cause conflicts.

My recommendation is that you Compile your menu(s) with the latest AllWebMenus version and make sure that you upload both the menu and library files.

Support Case Month: March 2013

Hello,

There is a small bug
- In IE7 - the menu slips to the right 2px
- In Google Chrome - it slips to the left 1 px
- In Firefox - it slips to the left 1 px, also

Works ok in IE8, IE9, Opera.
Not tested in IE10

Please advice.

Thank you

Hello,

Note that each browser may render the fonts slightly differently and this can cause a with difference.

The best way to ensure that the menu has exactly the same width is to specify it:

main menu minimum width

Hello,

Thank you for your prompt response.

It’s ok now.

For your knowledge this is what I’ve done:

I inserted a new div for IE7 especially, positioned with CSS hack.

I used browser specific offsets for the other browsers. Also I had to set the header font size at 6px (Opera splits the header also, because of the font size).

Best regards,
Adrian

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Adrian,

But this way your menu is still differently sized in each browser and you just “center” it with offsets.

If this is what you wanted, you could do it much easier (and more reliably) by selecting “top-center” in the Positioning property.

My recommendation would be to avoid the use of the <span> and Position the menu relative to the <div> with id="meniu".

Also, if you prefer, you can set it to be “top-center”, but I would also set the minimum width to 962px to make sure that it has the same width in all browsers.

This way you will not need any special offsets nor any CSS hacks.

Initial Email Subject: Separator not consistently showing
Support Case Month: February 2013

Need help with the separator not showing consistently in IE9. Site is {URL REMOVED}  There should be a separator between each menu item however in IE9 running compatibility mode the first 4 menu items do not show a separator between them however the separator shows for the remainder of the items. In Firefox 18.0.2 and Chrome (can’t find version but I just updated it to current) the menu and separators appear as they should.

And if IE9 isn’t in compatibility mode then the menu doesn’t show at all.

Suggestions?

BTW, I plan on upgrading to the current version of AWM in the next week or two. In the meantime I have to use build #830 which I know as msome limitations

Thanks for the help

Michael

Dear Michael,

The menu does not appear in IE9 exactly because the AllWebMenus version you are using is very old.

However, I tried to view the problem with the separator, and everything looked fine in my IE9 in Compatibility mode. Is it possible that you are also seeing things in a zoom state? If so, then it is not uncommon for IE9 to create rounding errors and miss-out on 1px lines. (This is not really related to our menu though, but to the bad IE9 zooming.)
