Please can you supply me with the software requirements – Windows/Linux/MSSQL/MySQL etc? In fact can you ask the technical team to provide a full spec required to host your software.
Reply From: Likno Customer Support
Here is what I believe that you need:
- Hardware: There are no limits on the type of hardware used to host an LMS installation. However, as your needs grow, so will the need for additional resources. A simple LMS installation requires about 50M of free disk space and 32M of free system memory. However, a minimum of 128M free memory available to PHP is recommended. Disk space should be allocated according to usage
- Software: LMS requires an environment running the following:
- PHP version 5.1+ (PHP 5.2+ recommended)
- Mysql Server 4+ (Mysql 5 is strongly recommended, and mandatory for LMS Enterprise installations)
- Web server (Apache 2+ recommended, although LMS can work with Apache 1.x, IIS, nginx or lighttpd)
- Write access from the web server to some folders inside the LMS installation (see Preparing LMS setup on Linux Server with Apache below)
LMS may be installed either on a Windows or on a Linux environment. However, if you are going to use non-latin language settings, linux is preferred over windows due to the latter's poor support for UTF-8 filenames

Works with all CMS and Blogs (such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, Typo3, DotNetNuke, Expression Engine, CMS Made Simple, etc.).
- Create cross-browser jQuery scrollers to display content (items) that scroll horizontally or vertically when visitors click on (or mouse over) special navigation arrows, bars, and more.
- ... OR make the scroller behave as a "SlideShow": its items sliding (scrolling) automatically, one at a time, at specified duration and direction, with looping or not, pause on "mouse over" and more.
- Use simple text, HTML code, images, videos (YouTube, etc.), animations, Flash as the content of your scroller items.

- Universal: Use in all authoring tools (Dreamweaver, Expression Web, etc.) and CMS platforms (Joomla, Drupal, WordPress, etc.).
- Use any of 4 methods to populate your scrollers with content:
1. Scroller is populated by the project properties (within the application)
2. Scroller is populated by a UL/LI structure, located inside your page.
3. Scroller is populated by DIV elements, located inside your page.
4. Scroller is populated by an external feed, such as RSS, ATOM, XML.
- Position your scrollers easily on page and anywhere you like, with many options:
1. Insert into a page element of your choice (div, span, td, etc.).

3. Replace an image of your choice.
4. Float, relative to the browser window (any corner).
5. Float, relative to a page element of your choice (any corner).
6. Float, relative to an image of your choice (any corner).
- Customize the style of your scrollers through CSS ("css scrollers").
- Apply images creatively to create interesting scrollers (images on scroller items, images on different "areas" such as "Top", "Bottom", "Left", "Right", etc.).
- Use multiple scrollers on the same page (with the same or different styling).
- Use additional Areas to your scroller around the main "Items Area" for extra information (a title, a footnote, etc.): the "Top Area", "Bottom Area", "Left Area", "Right Area".
- Add dynamic content (database-driven or programmable) to your scrollers.
- Use a tooltip on every scroller item (optionally), with plenty of styling options and dynamic HTML content.
- Use a variety of transition behaviors (Continuous, Step by Item, Step by Page) and transition effects (Instantly, Fade, Slide), etc.
- Use a variety of Navigation Bars to navigate through the scroller items. With CSS and dedicated properties to fully customize the appearance of "First", "Previous", "Next", "Last" buttons, text label, item numbers, background of the bar, mouse over effects and more.

Initial Email Subject: Pre-sales Question
I really like your menus!!
Can I incorporate your menus in a page in wordpress and then add a mobile theme like WPTouch so that if I link my iphone app properly to this page I will get a very nice looking "iphone app menu" right on my iphone just like as intended?
Comments about getting you menus to work with/on mobile phones??
Incorporating your menu in WordPress is pretty easy as we have developed a special plugin to help you with this task:
You should not have any problem regardless of the WordPress Theme you are using. Just note that the WordPress Theme will not affect the menu appearance.
If you want your menu to look like a typical iPhone menu, then you need to use the related AllWebMenus Template.
Or you can create a similar design yourself.
You may also find additional themes and templates (other than the ones provided for free within the AllWebMenus installation) here:
Finally, our menus are cross-platform and support all platforms, such as Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, mobile phones/smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry 6+) and more.
