Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.
Support Case Month: March 2012
Initial Email Subject: menu linking code not immediately after the body tag
Thank you for you help activating my software. After working with the software I noticed placement issues with IE web browsers.
All other browsers look perfect. (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera) I have attached a screen shot of the problem in IE and how it looks in Chrome.
This is a typical IE error when the menu-linking code is placed within page tags and not immediately after the <BODY> tag (as it should be).
In your case, the menu-linking code is somewhere deep in page, away from the <BODY> tag:
You have 2 solutions:
1. Transfer that menu-linking code under the <body> tag:
2. If you have to have it there (due to web editor restrictions for example) then your other solution is to have the following option selected in the Project Properties:

This is to inform you that AllWebMenus Pro version 5.2 Build #802 has been released!
Take a look at 'What's New' in this version:
- New "Menu Structure Source" property to specify how your css navigation menu is populated with menu items and submenus:
Option 1: using the project's structure, i.e. items that you add to your AllWebMenus project. These items are fetched from its compiled project's file (default option), OR
Option 2: "on-the-fly", using <UL><LI> items fetched from the loaded page that shows the menu.
- Added support for properly building a menu when its menu-linking code cannot be placed right after the <BODY> element: you can inform AllWebMenus if the menu-linking code is a direct child of the <BODY> tag (default behavior) OR it "sits" inside additional tags (like <td>, <div>, <span>, etc.). The latter case used to cause some cross-browser trouble in certain CMS or tools (especially in FrontPage), now it is solved through this option.
- Fixed an issue where the "Show Item or Group on Appear" didn't work properly when "Automatically" was chosen and the option "If the highlighted item is inside a submenu group, this group will also appear selected and open" was unchecked.
