Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus Pro, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Brian
Initial Email Subject: AllWebMenus build #928 on IE8
Support Case Month: January 2014

I'm new to AllWebMenus, but learning fast.  With the previous build, I was not able to view my menus in IE11, but IE8 worked fine.  Now, with build 928, the effect is exactly opposite.  My menus work great in IE11 and Firefox, but not in IE8.  One menu places all the items on one line and the other menu doesn't show at all.

The first menu is to the left of the "Product Search" box in the upper right hand corner of the referenced website.  The other menu is the navigation menu and should show in the tan horizontal bar below the "Product Search" box.

Please let me know if you have any questions, or a solution.

Thank you,
Brian

Hello Brian,

In order to correct the issue you first need to declare a valid DOCTYPE.

So, the very first line in your page should be:

<!DOCTYPE html>

valid DOCTYPE declaration

Then, you need to place the menu linking codes right after your <body> tag.

If for any reason, you are not able to place the menu linking code right after the <body> tag then go to your AllWebMenus menu projects click on Project Properties. Then, select the Menu-Linking Code in Tags and select "Yes, within tags" and then click OK.

menu linking code in tags

After you have made that change you need to re-compile your menu project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Hello i love the modal builder and bought the unlimited license

I will need to use the API but i can't figure out where to deploy the commands

Here is my code. I've tried several places within that code but not sure where to put them. your help appreciated, thanks

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB MODAL WINDOWS CODE FOR popup_with_id ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">
var lwmwLinkedBy="LiknoWebModalWindows [1]",lwmwName="popup_with_id",lwmwBN="262";

<script>myModalName({header:{text:'Hello world'}});</script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB MODAL WINDOWS CODE FOR popup_with_id ******** -->

Hello,

Your linking code looks ok. You need to place that linking code after the <body> tag in your pages. Make sure you have uploaded the likno-scripts folder produced after you have compiled your Modal Window  project.

According to your url the path for your modal window javascript file should be http://{URL REMOVED}/modals/likno-scripts/popup_with_id.js

Then in your pages you need to have the code that triggers the modal window.

Check this in Likno Web Modal Windows to see how you should have the code.

modal window trigger code

For example, you could have
<a id="Modal_Window_1" href="javascript:void(0);">Test modal</a>

Thank you!

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


Initial Email From:
Au
Initial Email Subject: Inquiry about Web Tab Builders
Support Case Month: June 2013

Hi,

I would like to find out more about your Web Tab Builders. I was wondering whether it can cross-over with my existing software of XSitepro for the web build-up. Do I get any technical support for it?

Hope to get your revert soon.

Thanks and regards,
Au

Hello Au,

You can find a lot of information about Likno Web Tabs Builder in this page: http://www.likno.com/jquery-tabs/index.php

You have 3 choices of populating your web tabs (inside the project, through DIVs or through UL/LI elements). You could use DIVs or UL/LI structure to populate the tabs inside your XSitepro pages and add a JavaScript script in the pages you want the tabs to appear. As long as you can do those 2 steps then you can have the web tabs in your XSitepro pages.

Thank you.

Kind Regards,

Hi everybody,
Thanks for the explanation. However, I still have doubt because I can't find much example and support from the website. Hence, I'm not so expert in HTML and CSS but I need these builder to boost up my XSitepro as it is very useful.
If I have at least 20 pages which need this tab builder, does this mean I have to upload it 20 times?
Kindly advice
Thanks and regards,
Au

Hello Au,

You can have as many pages as you want, the only steps you need to follow are:

Step1 : Use Likno Web Tabs Builder to create and stylize your web tabs. Choose the population method and the positioning method.

Step 2: Insert to the pages you have the linking code, the population code and positioning code.

Step 3: Upload the 2 folders of your project in your server.

Note: If you use a template then you only need to insert the linking code, population code and positioning code in your template once and not in every page.

You don't need to be an expert in HTML or CSS in order to do that, as the application creates any code you need.

Please see the manual for more help http://www.likno.com/downldd/Likno_Web_Tabs_Builder_Manual.pdf or see the Help in the application and let me know if you need more explanations.

Kind Regards,
Aggelos

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


Initial Email From:
User
Initial Email Subject: how to unlink accordion project code in non-editable region?
Support Case Month: April 2012

I use Dreamweaver with a master template. You inserted the code for my accordion project immediately following the body tag in a NON-EDITABLE portion of my index.htm file. I changed the name of the project, recompiled and relinked it to the index.htm file. now i cannot remove the older project code because it is NON-EDITABLE. there is not "unlink" button. So, if i edit the index.htm file with a text editor to remove that older code of yours, what else must i remove?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

The Linking Code should look like this:

<!-- ******** BEGIN LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR likno_accordion_project ******** -->
<script type="text/javascript">var lwacLinkedBy="LiknoWebAccordion [1]",lwacName="likno_accordion_project",lwacBN="230";</script><script charset="UTF-8" src="likno-scripts/likno_accordion_project.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END LIKNO WEB ACCORDION CODE FOR likno_accordion_project ******** -->

In the highlighted text your linking code should have the old project name that you don't want any more. So, delete the above lines of code. Also, you might want to delete from your server the old .js file and the old accordion subfolder so you won't have extra files you don't actually need.

Thank you!

Initial Email From:
Claudio
Initial Email Subject: awmShowItem
Support Case Month: May 2013

Kostas,

I am back with the same technical problem I encountered in the Blog below:

http://www.likno.com/blog/highlight-menu-item/2418/

You are saying in the blog response:

The “it7” is the ID of this specific item. It is NOT just its order in the menu. If you add other items before or after it, this item will still be referenced by “it7”.

==================

In the AllWebMenus Help, I read a different explanation:

About the awmShowItem variable when the menu is populated using a "UL/LI structure". 

In order to find the correct ID to use as a parameter, you should count the loading order of the ULs and LIs. So you should count how many LI tags are found in the UL/LI structure until the desired item is found.
For example this is a usual UL/LI code:
<ul id="awmULLI-menu" style="display:none;">
<li>Main Item 1</li>
<li>Main Item 2
   <ul>
     <li>Sub Item 1</li>
     <li>Sub Item 2
       <ul>
         <li>Sub Item 4</li>
         <li>Sub Item 5</li>
         <li>Sub Item 6</li>
       </ul>
     </li>
     <li>Sub Item 3</li>
   </ul>
</li>
<li>Main Item 3</li>
</ul>

According to the awmShowItem technique, if you want to make the “Sub Item 6” highlighted, you should use it7 since its LI tag is the 7th LI in the structure

==================

Testing the theory on the new project:  {URL REMOVED}

I am using the function var awmShowItem=["MainMenu,it5,1,0"];

IF I add another item in the BISHOP menu list, the highlighted menu option will move to the BISHOP group, since that option changed to it6.

The only solution to the problem is to create a javascript function where the selection of the menu item is based either on the URL or the anchor text:

awmShowItem=["MainMenu,Ministries,1,0"];  

awmShowItem=["MainMenu,CatholicDiocese.php?op=ILS_Information,1,0"];

Otherwise, I will have to go page by page to update the javascript code of similar pages, every time I add a new LI item into the structure.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Claudio,

When you are using a menu project and you populate your menu in there, then each menu item gets a specific ID that will not change when you move this item around or add other items around it.

However, when you are using a UL/LI menu then the menu is dynamically created at runtime, so the menu items also get their ID at runtime and there is no way to have a specific item keep a specific id.

In this case, indeed, when you add items you may need to change the highlight code too.

However you say that you need to change this in every page. This suggests that you manually included the code in each of your pages in the first place. Our recommendation is that you use an include file (e.g. a PHP or ASP file) and keep the menu Linking Code, Structure Code and highlight code there. This way it will be automatically included in all pages, but it will be much easier to maintain as you will only need to change and upload a single file when you need to change the menu again.

Kostas
