Initial Email Subject: Links are adding a prefix 
Support Case Month: April 2014

For some reason it is adding /js/ in front of the links and I can't find the parameter that I must have messed up.

I want the compiled JavaScript files and images to go into the /js folder.

Thanks.

Hello Barry,

Please, go to Project Properties -> Folders & Files and click on Edit in Menu file.

edit menu project properties

Then, for the Compiled menu subfolder choose the Default (Site_root) and click OK.

menu site root folder

Re-compile your menu project and re-link it to your pages.

This will remove the js prefix from you links. That happened because you have root relative links on your menu items, thus it adds the js prefix as it was defined as your root for your menu file.

Please, let me know if I can be of further help.

Thank you.

Initial Email Subject: Spacing between horizontal menu items
Support Case Month: February 2014

Hey guys:

I'm working in a simple horizontal menu that will have the following five menu items with no submenus

They are:

Home  About Us  Products  Liquor  Contact Us

I would like them to be all spaced the same distance, meaning I would like the About Us item to appear 10 pixels after the 'e' in Home, and the Products item to appear 10 pixels after the 's' in About Us ... &c

However when I set it up, it looks like this:

     Home     About Us  Products     Liquor   Contact Us    (Note the spacing)

It seems the size of each item is being driven by the largest text as apposed to each individual text.

How do I get the menu to have each item only as wide as the text in it plus a set spacing?

Thanks

Mike

Hello Mike,

Please, click on Menu Type and uncheck the "Uniform Items" property. This is what makes the menu all the items to have the largest item width.

uniform menu items

Then, you need to re-compile your project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

If the above is not your case, please export and send me your project file, so that we can have a better look at the problem.

This is what you should do to export your project into a ZIP file and then email this ZIP to us.

export menu project

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: 100% width menu in AllWebMenus
Support Case Month: January 2014

Hi Folks

I am hoping to get the menu background to fit the horizontal space of the containing <div> as opposed to a fixed pixel width and to have the menu items aligned to the left with a specified gap between

Please advise.

Thanks!
Craig

Hello Craig,

Please, go to Menu Positioning and check the "Yes, widen group to fit the entire width of", select Element with ID: and in the field next to it type NavBarDiv (as this is the div you refer to).

The next choice is up to you, If you choose "Yes, widen item so that they fit the entire group", your menu items will be widen so they whole menu can take up to your DIV's width.

If you choose "Do, not widen items (Show Background Left/Right)" this way the menu items will stay as you see them in AllWebMenus preview and the rest of the space (to catch the DIV's total width) will be covered with the background color/image you have select in Main Menu Group properties.

widen menu to act as menubar

background properties of main menu group

After you make those changes, you need to re-compile your menu project and re-upload the produced files.

Let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

User
Initial Email Subject:  Text shadow
Support Case Month: October 2013

Hello

Is it possible to attach a shadow to text in Allwebmenus.

If not, it would be a useful addition for a future build.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

This is not possible in a WYSIWYG mode in the application.

But, still you could have text shadow in your menu items.

You could have your menu as a CSS menu and then you can add a specific style (text-shadow in your case) to each item you want as inline style or even better create a new class in your CSS file for the text-shadow and apply that class to the menu items you want them to have a text shadow.

Please, find attached a zip folder that contains a simple AllWebMenus project that is compiled as CSS menu and a textShadow.html page that you can see the code and how it looks.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject:  make a sub menu layered behind it's parent menu item
Support Case Month: October 2013

I am trying to make a submenu appear beneath it's parent menu. How can I achieve this? So that the z-index of the sub menu is say 999 and the main menu is 1000

it has to do with hiding a part of a top border of the sub menu, but only the part below the parent button a top it.

Thanks,
Nick

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Nick,

In general this has to do with the "Appear Where" property.
In order to achieve that you need to go to Sub Groups Style -> Appears – Where -> and set the distance of the selected edge. Here I have set it to be -10 pixels so that It appears like in the screenshot below:

submenu appears where property

menu preview

Note though that the z-index value is a global property, which means you cannot have different z-index value in main menu items than in submenu items.

Thank you!
