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

I have a question regarding AWM.  We are working with someone rebuilding the navigation on our website.  We built our basis with AWM.  He then told us that your program would not support SEO.  I thought that I had read in a few places that it will.  When we are using links in our Navigation will they be recognized by SEO if we build and compile with AWM?

Thanks,
Bob

Dear Bob,

It does indeed support SEO in two different ways. The first is by using the included sitemap generators (under the “Tools” menu). The second is by using a “ULLI” menu in which case the menu structure (and links) is directly included in every page.

Please check the “SEO” section under Project Properties for more details.

Let me know if you need more specific help.

Initial Email Subject: 404 errors after compiling
Support Case Month: July 2012

When compiling the menu for site www.bucband.org I am receiving 404 errors when selecting one of the menu picks.  Before compiling I set the Site Root to C:\\Users\\MikePC\\Documents\\My Webs\\bucband .  Now when I compile the menu and copy the menu2.js file up to the domain host, I end up getting 404 errors.  When I select a menu link, instead of getting (for example) http://www.bucband.org/boosters/overview.htm , I get instead:
http://www.bucband.org/Mike/Documents/My%20Webs/bucband/boosters/overview.htm .  When I revert back to a previously generated menu I don't get this problem.

Appears that there is a relative versus absolute referencing problem here.  Can you suggest a solution ?

Hello,

When you changed the Site Root, you were asked if you wanted to “correct” the links. You pressed yes, and the application assumed that the Site Root was also changed online, which was not true I guess.

Currently your links point to the wrong direction. For example your “announcements” link points to:

../../../../Mike/Documents/My Webs/bucband/upload/announcements.shtml

When it should be pointing to:

/upload/announcements.shtml

You need to correct this in AllWebMenus. If you have a copy saved before the Root Folder change, it would save you some time. Note that you may also find such an automatic backup under:

"c:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Likno Software\AllWebMenus\AutoBackup\.."

Alternatively, I would suggest that you use the “External Multi Editing” tool in order to mass-edit your links in Excel and save time.

Initial Email Subject: Frames
Support Case Month: August 2012

Throughout the different times he have designed and redesigned our site we have been told many things.  And of course many things have changed through the years. 

One that I am just not sure on is the use of Frames.  I recall being told that it wasn't a good practice to use a frameset but it really does seem like the best route to go.  Let me explain...

Our old site which is www.home2000.com used 3 frames.  Top, left and main.  The topFrame held the upper navigation, logo and search feature so it was always a consistent and did not have to be refreshed.  Then when someone would select one of the links in the upper navigation, it would load a menu in the left frame and content in the mainFrame.  This really worked well for us.

When he decided to redesign our site, we wanted to move away from Java mainly.  We also wanted to rewrite our pages to load faster etc.  We had someone who converted our pages into HTML.  When he did this, he wrote the upper navigation into the page as well. Because of this, when we load a new page, the whole thing reloads because its all part of the same page.  If you look at our old site, and compare it to our new site (www.home2000.com/h2) you will see what I mean.

What is our best way to do this?  I was thinking that if I just use a very basic frame system that holds the logo, navigation and search feature; a lower frame could hold the display pages and that way the upper frame always stays consistent because it wont change anyways...it is exactly the same on each page.  I read a little on iFrames, but I really don't think that is the way to go for this situation.  Please let me know what you think would be the best route and if there are problems with using frames this way.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Bob

Dear Bob,

I believe that there is no need to keep using frames in your site. The top frame is really light and considering that any images are cached and not really reloaded every time, it is probably lighter to have a single page instead of three (even if one never reloads).

Moreover, if you use a single page you will be able to use other menu features, such as the “auto-highlight” which shows the current item highlighted.

If you want to keep the maintenance easy, you could put the “top section” HTML into a separate include file (you need some server-side language for this, such as PHP or ASP), so changing the logo in a single file will update all your pages.

Support Case Month: May 2012

Hello,

I try to use Database-driven API on "Espace client" tab.

I would display the same information like "Paper" tab if user not registered.

The display is good but links not works and mouse can't click on it.

Thx a lot to help me to get this working.

Hello,

First of all, right after you create the item you also add a submenu to it, which is wrong (as in not required), so you can delete this second line:

submenu code

Regarding the actual problem now, it originates from the fact that this item has not been set as “HTML mode”.

To correct this, please add the following parameter to your menu item:

set menu item as HTML mode

Hello,

Thx a lot for your answer.

Now it is working.

Is it the same (;htmlMode=1) for full html mode ?

Thx again

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

This is the full html mode (there is no “text only” in the script – only “html” and “full html”).

You need full html if you want the links to work, otherwise the whole item will be clickable, pointing to the item’s URL.

Initial Email Subject: WordPress menu links on page
Support Case Month: July 2012

When I started learning how to use the menus in WordPress I had the menu type as Dynamic and the links showed up in the page source. Now I have the menu type as Static and the links do not show up in the page source.
Is there any way to use the Static menu setting and display the links in the page source?
Thank you,
Sheldon

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Sheldon,

“Static” means that you have defined the structure in AllWebMenus. Did you do this? When you changed the menu from “Dynamic” to “Static”, did you re-import the menu? if not, then you should do this now.

Hi Kostas,

I did re-import the menu. Are the links supposed to show in the source of the page?

Thank you,

Sheldon

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

No. If you use “Static” then the links are only visible within the “menu.js” file.

You can make the links show in the source if you turn the project to ULLI or CSS.
