Hi I'm interested in your software for Joomla site.  Can you tell me:

Can I use the generated menus on multiple site?

Is the code for the menu that is generated editable?

Can the menus have different colors for each of the menu items:

Home|About|Contact

so Home might be red, About blue and Contact orange?

Thanks,
Alan

Hello Alan,

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

Yes, you can use the menus on multiple sites.

When you compile your project for a Joomla site a zip file is created that you need to upload it to your Joomla site through our AllWebMenus Joomla Component. This file contains the JavaScript Files needed for the menu to work. I would recommend you not to edit those. If you need to have a Server-Side menu that you can edit and customize it according to your needs we have the Server-Side menu API. You can find more information here: http://www.likno.com/addins/dhtml-menu-serverside.html

server-side menu api

Yes, you can either set styling properties for all the menu items (main items, sub menu items and sub menu+ items) but you can also have specific styling properties for each menu item. So, yes you can definitely do that (have red Home item, blue About item and Orange Contact item).

different styling properties for each menu item

Please, let me know if you need further information.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Can the AllWebMenus Jooma Menu Component be used and have it generate a menu for the Virtuemart portion of the site?

We have version 1.1.15 AllWebMenus Jooma Menu Component installed but do not see how to use with Virtuemart - please avise.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am not familiar with Virtuemart. Does it generate a standard Joomla menu?

If so, then you should be able to select this menu within the AllWebMenus Joomla component.

If Virtuemart uses its own database and separate menu holding structure then I am afraid that you cannot use AllWebMenus to connect to it.

VirtueMart is a shopping cart component – I am not sure about  “separate menu holding structure” but I think it may – the menu is dynamically generated based upon categories / products added within the component – it is NOT managed via the Joomla “Menus” area.

Based upon the link here http://extensions.virtuemart.net/component/sobi2/?sobi2Task=sobi2Details&catid=11&sobi2Id=77&Itemid=2 I guess we assumed it would work with VirtueMart

Dear Matt,

We were not aware that the VirtueMart guys had AllWebMenus in their list of extensions. It seems they found our Joomla solution and entered it there themselves.

We have now contacted VirtueMart asking them what the requirements would be for a component that would work with their system automatically generating menus.

Hopefully we will have a reply soon and will be able to offer a proper solution.

I will let you know as soon as I have something new.

Initial Email Subject: I have two menus
Support Case Month: April 2012

Dear support

I use joomla 2.5. and are exited over the possibilities of the AllWebMenus. This is my second webpage and i am a absolute beginner in the field. I use a lot of time to fool around - but i am determined to be better at the job.

I do have one problem, that seem difficult for me to solve and I hope that you will be able to help me with that.

I am a registered user. I have downloaded the latest AllWebMenus PRO v. 5.3. and also the newest software AllWebMenus joomla menu component v. 1.1.15. I have generated the menu structure code from the webpage to use in the desktop program. I have compiled the structure - and uploaded everything to my webpage - but now I got two menus - the old joomla menu structure behind the new. I do not want two menus on top of each other.

I have tried a lot of things for a long time now and I am sure that there is a small thing, that I have done wrong. I hope you can help we with that please.

I am looking forward to hear from you

Hello,

The two menus are not really related. If you want to remove the original Joomla menu, you have to do this from within the Joomla admin. This will not affect the AllWebMenus menu.

Dear Keld,

I just visited your site, but I did not see any menu there at all. There is no Likno code in the URL you sent.

Did you remove the menu in the meantime?

Dear Kostas

The menu should be appearing when you push the second menu item in the horizontal menu line - saying: "Vi tilbyder".

It should be to the left as usual vertical menus is - and you should be able to se it in Chrome and Firefox - but not in Explorer.

In fact I think the menu-program is rather fantastic and i am happy about it. So I would like it to work in IE also.

Would you take another look at my page and maybe give me some advice, please - as I am keen to learn - and there is so much to learn.

Regards

Keld :)

Dear Keld,

I checked the new URL and indeed there is a menu there that shows in most browsers but not IE.

The problem is with the Positioning element. Specifically you are not supposed to have a plain number as an element ID. This is considered "bad HTML" and although most browsers can cope with it, IE will just through an error and stop running any scripts on the page.

The ID can contain letters and numbers but must always start with a letter.

Dear Kostas

Thank you for the support.

I understand the problem and have been searching intenstly trying to find out what to do next. As I am looking at the joomla side - all it says is the side ID number (which is 480). There are nothing else to see. I have also been reading the help manual - and i just dont get it. Im on the edge of giving up. Do you have any ideas about what I should do now, then kindly please let me know. I will be very thankfull.

Regards

Keld :)

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Keld,

So you are not able to change this ID? Was this automatically generated by Joomla?

Then just try using the parent DIV, with class "module_content":

menu relative to an element
