Email Subject: Using an asp.net form in a megamenu
Support Case Month: May 2013

Is there a way to include an asp.net form within a menu subgroup? We have a conventional html-based megamenu design, to which I would like to add asp.net controls to display item prices and urls loaded from a datasource.

Dear John,

This is not impossible, but it may be tricky and in any case it requires custom code.

It is not possible to include server-side code (ASP) into client-side code (JS), but it is possible to include it in the HTML of your page.

Hence I believe the best approach is to use an in-page UL/LI structure for populating your menu and include the ASP there.

Note that AllWebMenus can give you a sample code of the UL/LI you need to have in your page, based on your existing menu:

clip_image001

clip_image002

clip_image003

That was fast, Kostas! 

I appreciate your answer, but I don't believe it answers my question. :-)

We already have a megamenu with subgroup items that are in HTML.  My question is whether we can use asp.net controls within the subgroup's HTML. I tried it, but it didn't seem to want to work.

Does that explain my problem more clearly?

I hope all's well with you.

Regards

John

Dear John,

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I will try to explain this further.

I understand that you typed your HTML code within AllWebMenus, right? This means that the HTML code is included in the compile JavaScript file which you then upload online.

The problem is that any code you add in a JavaScript file, will not be processed by the server, hence any server-side code you add (such as the ASP include code) will appear as plain HTML or text inside your menu and will not be processed by the server.

If on the other hand you put your population code in your HTML page, then (if you also have this configured on your server, which is very likely) this page will be first processed by the server for server-side code and it will then be served to the client. This way the server-side code will work.

The downside of using UL/LI code to populate your menus is that you need to have this code in each of your pages, however this is not much of a problem as you can add this code in yet another ASP include file, or (if you have one) in your template file.

I hope this was more clear than my previous answer. Let me know if you need more help.

How do I name my menu as a js file? I wish to add it into an existing Frontpage document, your help facility isn't very clear.

Kind regards,
Steven

Hello,

You need to compile your menu (within AllWebMenus) and you will get the .js compiled menu files.

Initial Email Subject: Additional code to be added to Modal Windows
Support Case Month: February 2013

Hello,

Sorry for my question but I don't remember if it is possible to add somewhere additional codes (such as the one of Google Analytics or javascript strings used to count accesses to web pages) to the modal windows while creating them with your tool.

Please, let me know.

Kind regards,
Paolo

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Paolo,

I guess this is possible if you are loading an “external” page into the modal window. Note however that Google Analytics may not work as expected when you try to count framed pages.

I believe the best method to use is to count the page using Google’s JS functions and not with the standard <script> that you embed in the page.

Hi there!

To be more precise, I need to add a <script> line of code working as counter. But as I use your modal windows in order to show images, flash animation, etc. placed into .htm pages to be shown in the modal window, but when i load them online it seems to me that the counter doesn't work.

So, I was asking you if it possible to place the <script> code directly into the modal window layout and not in the .htm external page containing images of flash files.

Please, let me know.

Regards,
Paolo

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Paolo,

Putting the <script> directly into a modal would probably not work. The best way is through an “external” page.

The thing however is that you cannot simply use the typical code like this:

<script type="text/javascript">

var pageTracker = _gat._getTracker("yourcode");

pageTracker._initData();

pageTracker._trackPageview();

</script>

This will most likely add extra views to the parent page as Google tries to capture the URL at the top of the page.

Instead you should directly use Google’s API like this:

pageTracker._trackPageview('/my_counter_name');

this should work without any problems if you use it within the iframe. Note that you can give any name to the “counter” and it will appear along with your pages in the analytics.

Support Case Month: November 2012

Hello,

Is it possible to recover an .awm file from a .js one ? (I've lost the original)

Thank you for your answer

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am afraid this cannot be done automatically...

However, there is a partial solution (you regain around 80% of your existing work), read here:

http://www.likno.com/blog/lost-allwebmenus-project/254/

OR

...read the same text here:

If you are one of the unfortunate cases that have lost the source file of your menu (i.e. the .awm file), we now come to the rescue!

Provided that you do have the compiled javascript menu file (menu.js) somewhere online or offline, we offer a "partial reconstruction" service to get the Menu Structure of your project into a new project file (.awm).

This is a manual process and costs $89, provided that the size of the menu is not too large.

Please contact us if you wish to use this service.

Important Note:

This service recreates manually only the Menu Structure (the tree structure of items and groups), NOT the Style Properties. After you receive the reconstructed project from us, you will have to re-specify the style properties yourself to make your menu look as before.

Depending on your menu appearance (if you use customized styles for specific items or just the global Style Editor styles) you will gain about 80% of your time compared to re-designing the entire menu from scratch.

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


Initial Email From:
Brad
Initial Email Subject: tooltip 
Support Case Month: November 2012

Hi,

I followed the steps outlined in the help file. I created my tooltip.

Put the name of the tooltip into allwebmenus/ Style/ tooltip Style for mouse over.

I linked both projects to my page. Compiled both. I checked to make sure the js file was where it was supposed to be. When  I mouseover the allwebmenus item nothing happens.

Any ideas?

Thanks,  Brad

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Brad,

The problem is that you have not set the tooltip as an “AllWebMenus” tooltip:

set tooltip as AllWebMenus tooltip

You HAVE to do this if you want the tooltips to work in AllWebMenus.

Then if you want to load an external page, you can do this with code within AllWebMenus:

tooltip value to load external page

Just make sure that the iframe size matches the tooltip size…

Kostas,

I have it working now.  I updated my version of AllWebMenus and that seemed to do the trick.

Thanks for your help,
Brad
