Support Case Month: November 2013

Hello Aggelos,

See the attached zip for my exported project file.

I have created it as a CSS menu. Am using the suggested UL/LI structure in my web page. 

The menu structure works fine in the linked web page. But when I add a image to the “Home Place” menu item in AllWebMenus PRO, it does not do anything with it ... nothing appears in any code ? 

Regards, Dave

Hello David,

In order to have the Home icon appear, you need to manually add it as it is a CSS version of the menu.

So, your structure will look like this;

CSS menu structure code

You need to add in

 <li><img src="your image path" /><a href="default.html">Home Place</a></li>

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

Support Case Month: August 2013

is there a way to make it slide of and on the page after it's made responsive?

Hello Ellen,

You could create a main menu item (an arrow for example) that on click will show the menu (the main menu items will move one level down so will become submenu items). In this way and with the proper styling you will achieve what you want.

Check the version 4 of this example menu http://www.likno.com/examples/responsive-menu-above-green-line-resize-page.html. It's kind of similar. you will notice the menu structure on version 1 for example and then see the menu structure on version 4 to understand what i am saying.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Passing PHP variable to URL
Support Case Month: July 2013

I need to pass a variable, via PHP, to each URL in my menu as follows:

?BG=<?php echo $bg; ?>

so that the url would look like loading.php?BG=<?php echo $bg; ?>  ... and it would resolve with the appropriate variable.

Couldn't find answer in knowledge base.

Hello Jim,

In order to achieve that, you should populate your menu through UL/LI structure.

Choose the following option in your AllWebMenus project:

populate menu using UL  LI structure

Then click on the "Settings" in order to make the settings that perfectly work for you.

menu structure settings

A UL/LI structure in your page could look like the one below:

<ul id="awmULLI-menu" style="display:none;">
  <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg1; ?>">Main Item 1</a></li>
  <li>Main Item 2
    <ul>
      <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg2; ?>">Sub Item 1</a></li>
      <li>Sub Item 2
        <ul>
          <li>Sub Item 4</li>
          <li>Sub Item 5</li>
          <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg3; ?>">Sub Item 6</a></li>
        </ul>
      </li>
      <li>Sub Item 3</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li>Main Item 3</li>
</ul>

Let me know if you need any more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: WordPress Integration
Support Case Month: May 2013

I am in the process of adding a WordPress installation to my web site. I will be needing to maintain *both* handcoded pages AND WordPress pages/posts, and would like to maintain a single menu for *ALL* pages. I have been using AllWebMenus on our site for a while now, and would like to use the existing menu that I maintain on my handcoded pages on my WordPress pages, too. I don't want to control any menu content with WordPress ... I want my regular menu and navigation to stay the same wherever a user is on my site. The WordPress plugin *seems* to be about imposing the WordPress menu structure into the AWM menu ... but I don't want to do that.

Here's a URL for an example of one of my hand coded pages that I will be keeping:
{URL REMOVED}

I would like to place the *SAME* menu into my WordPress header, which you can see here:
{URL REMOVED}

Is this possible to do? What do I need to do to accomplish this?

Thanks!!

Hello,

The WordPress plugin is there only to help you with the integration. It does offer you the ability to use the structure of a WordPress menu, but it does not impose this.

If you set the menu to be “Static” online, then you do not need to import the menu structure at all (you’ll hit the “publish” button in the plugin, but do not import the code into AllWebMenus). Just compile your existing menu for WordPress and upload it using the plugin “publish”.

Furthermore if you want a single compile, you do not even need to install or use the plugin at all. In this case, just manually add the menu Linking Code into the “header.php” of your WordPress Theme.

Just make sure that your positioning is ok. For example if you are using a positioning “Relative to Element” make sure that the specific element also exists in the WordPress pages.

Initial Email Subject: Issue with AllWebMenus and WordPress
Support Case Month: May 2013

Hi, there.  I'm having an issue with AllWebMenus and WordPress of which I cannot figure out.

I have a working menu built in AllWebMenus and I've linked it to my WordPress site. 

For the AWM plugin settings in WordPress I've set my Menu Type to "Dynamic" and I've created a Menu in the WP dashboard and assigned that menu in the AWM plugin settings.

I've pasted the Menu Structure Code generated by the plugin into desktop application.

Basically everything is working fine, in that I see my menu, my menu is truly dynamic, and I can add menu items in WordPress and they appear as expected.

My issue has to do with the background images I'm using for my menu items.

All of my menu items have the same background image, except for three of them.

In the desktop app in the style editor I've given my menu items Main Items Style this background image:  "tab.png".

And that works.

main menu item background image

But for the three items that I want to have a different background image, I've selected "custom values" on the Menu Editor side, and assigned a background image of "tab-arrow.png" to those three buttons, like this:

menu item specific background image

In the app Menu Preview the graphic looks correct, in that for those three buttons it shows the alternate background image.

However when I compile my menu, go back to WordPress and import it, my buttons that have a different background image assigned to them never show the alternate background image.  They will only show the background image assigned to the Main Items Style group.

Here is how it should look (notice that Articles, Products & Programs, and Services have a different graphic with an arrow):

clip_image001

And this is how it compiles and imports into WordPress (graphic does not appear.:

clip_image001[5]

Anyway, I hope that makes sense.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Randy

Dear Randy,

I am afraid that customizations are not supported when you are using a dynamic WordPress menu. As you already found out, any customizations that you use will simply be ignored online. This is because the menu cannot be certain that the item you see locally will indeed exist online.

Still, if I understand correctly, these are the only items that have a submenu, right? If so, then you can add your extra image as a “has submenu” image, which is a standard style option and will be applied to items that indeed have a submenu:

has submenu image
