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

Hi, I was looking at your Likno Web Button Maker and it says that it works with any CMS. I am sure that it does but, as a person that is starting with cms, I can’t get it to show on my webpage. I am using Joomla and and installed the plugin sourcerer to put some html code in any article so I can paste the html code when I exported my button. I tried installing the exported image in media manager but it didn’t help.

Could you include on you’re website the installing method in popular CMS, I think it could really boost your sales for people like me who are just starting with this. Software that makes it easy to do complicated things that would require lots of code (like your software) is right up the alley to people who are not professionals.

Thank you very much for your help.

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

I am afraid that we do not have a specific Joomla plugin, but it is very easy to import your new button manually.

The steps you need to take are:

1) Export your Button:

export button

2) I recommend selecting the 32bit PNG format as it has the best quality and supports transparency:

export button as 32 png that supports transparency

3) Note the path where you exported this button. You can now use it as an image in Joomla or anywhere else.

4) If you want to create a 3-state button, you have two options. To create it as a single “sprite” image and change it through CSS, or to create three separate images and change through JavaScript. If this is what you are trying to do (a 3-state image), please send me details (eg is this for a page button, or for a menu?) so that I can be more specific in my help.

Regards,

Kostas

Hi Kostas,

It is for a page button Inside an article an you’re absolutely right, it is easy if I just add the image. The problem is creating a 3-state button easily with this method and this is what i’m trying to do.

If you could lend me a hand how to do this, that would be great.

Thank you for the great support,

Jonathan

Dear Jonathan,

This will require some hand-on coding on your part. The problem here is that the Joomla editor will remove any tags that do not have content, including your <style> and <script> tags.

I believe the easiest way is to use the CSS method, as this can have the code embedded into the actual item.

To do this, export as CSS and copy the code:

<html>

<head>

<title>Likno Web Button Maker sample page</title>

<style type="text/css">

.liknobtn {
           display:block;
          
width:120px;
           height:40px;
     
     margin:0;
      
    padding:0;
           }

.liknobtn1 {
            background: url("LiknoWebButtonMaker1.png") 0 0 no-repeat;
           
}

</style>

</head>

<body>

<div class="liknobtn liknobtn1" id="liknobtn_1" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmousedown="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -80px';" onmouseup="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 0';"></div>

</body>

</html>

Then you need to merge this code into a single button (removing the unneeded parts), and make sure that it has an empty space as content (or it will be deleted by Joomla):

<div style="display: block; width: 120px; height:40px; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; background: url('/images/LiknoWebButtonMaker1.png') 0 0 no-repeat;" onmouseover="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmousedown="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -80px';" onmouseup="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 -40px';" onmouseout="this.style.backgroundPosition='0 0';">&nbsp;</div>

Pay attention to the image URL (where you will upload it) and also to the quotes in there, to not match the “style” quotes.

Let me know if this worked.

Kostas

Todd
Initial Email Subject: AllWebMenus, Responsive Menu Question
Support Case Month: February 2013

Greetings. I was wondering if you can help me with a question about the Responsive Menu feature in AllWebMenus Pro.

Months ago I tested this feature out on a menu for my website. Since then point in time (due to time constraints), I opted to go back to a single menu until my workload freed up a bit. Now that my workload is free to look in to this feature more, my dilemma is that Responsive Menu's Version 2-4 have remembered older/outdated states of my menu, as many changes have been made.

My question is: can I either delete "old" Versions or somehow refresh the Versions without going in to each Version and hand-changing the menu? Just trying to save time from having to go back-and-forth trying to figure out the difference between Version 1 and Versions 2-4.

Your help is most appreciated, & I thank you kindly.

Todd

Dear Todd,

If you have the latest AllWebMenus version, you will see an option to “clone” the structure from one version to another:

clone menu structure

Also, I remember that you were one of the first to try out the new responsive feature, when we released it with only standard JS menu support.

I want to let you know that it has matured since then and now it fully supports server-side menus, WordPress, Joomla and ULLI-based menus.

Initial Email Subject: Menu Button Highlighting
Support Case Month: January 2013

Hi Kostas,

One of my clients has brought up an interesting problem with AWM and Joomla pages.

If you look at the example below you will see that active menu items are highlighted in yellow on this menu.

menu button highlight

However, when the page is split into three pages then the highlighted menu item does not work. (See below)

menu button highlight does not work

What would it cost me to have this built in to the AWM menu system?

Warm regards

Brent

Download AllWebMenus from here and install it over the old one:

Support Case Month: June 2012

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

Matt

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.
