Initial Email Subject: Hi I have a strange question. Bet you have not heard this one before.
Support Case Month: February 2014

Is it possible to have a page that uses your menu that does not link to anything.

I have split my site into a default.html landing view (which is lite)

I then have another home page called index.html which is the main site.

I use your side menu and would like to have this menu showing on default.html (showing all the pages that it links to) but without the links working.

I.e. to tantalize the viewer but not allow them to go further into the web until they become a member / contact me.

I.e. all other pages within my site with the menu will need to work normally.

A strange request.  I apologize.

I hope you can accommodate me.

Hello Mark,

Hmmm….i can think of 2 solutions.

1st solution: You can create a copy of the existing menu and then remove the links. This way you will have 2 menus which look identical but the one does not have links. The one with no links you can link it to your default.html page and leave the other one as it was.

2nd solution: You can have your menu as CSS menu, which means you need to add the UL/LI structure in your pages. You can have the regular UL/LI structure to all the pages instead of the default.html in which you can remove the <a> tags from the menu items. So, the links will not work. In this solution you will only have one menu linked to all pages, but you have to add the UL/LI structure to all your pages. This will be easy if you have an include file but if you not it will take you more time.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Thank you!
Let me try the first solution.
I think it will work best.
When you say copy exactly how do I do that?
I know there is the code you include in your page. I also know about the folder that contains menu code and images for menu parts etc. and a menu.js (I think) within the html pages.
A copy would, I assume, duplicate the folder to another name, call it differently from the page and refer to a change from menu.js to menu1.js (I think) which would not have links.
I have got quite lazy and simply add new pages into the menu.js file as new lines with the new page and link.
I.e. I don't use your console any more as template is set up and runs.
Apologies if I have totally missed your point on what to do. Also for the bother of this long email.
Regards
Mark

Hello Mark,

I would suggest to copy your .awm menu project to another place with another name for example menuDefault.awm

Then, open it in AllWebMenus and remove the links from the items you don't want them to have links.

Go to the Project Properties and change the compile name (as it cannot be the same as the existent menu) so for example make it menuDefault.js

Then, compile that project and link it to your default.html page.

It should show as expected.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Roger 
Initial Email Subject: CSS menu 
Support Case Month: January 2014

Hello,

The Javascript menu I created is not found by search engines, even though I used the populate using UL/LI items option. MY SEO advisor tells me that the display: none setting causes this. Search engines do not like display: none settings anyway.

So I tried converting to a CSS version. However now my sliding vertical submenu does not work anymore. Is that not supported in the CSS version?

Regards,
Roger

Hello Roger,

I am afraid the sliding option does not work on a CSS based menu.

Considering the SEO you may want to use the JavaScript based menu and populate your items through UL/LI structure.

Also, you can use a sitemap so that search engine can crawl your menu items and links. You can do so by clicking on Tools -> Create Sitemaps -> (Create Generic Sitemap / Create Google Sitemap / Create ROR Sitemap).

create sitemap options

Let me know if you need further help on this.

Also, if you need further assistance please export your menu project and send it to me so I can have a better look on the issue.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Where is the add item?
Support Case Month: October 2013

I have just upgraded to latest AllWebMenus and could have sworn that on my older version there was an "Add Item" (to add a menu item) in the top tool bar.

Has this gone or am I missing something?

All I have is "Cut item", Copy Item", "Paste Group" and Paste Values".

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Barry,

First, thank you for upgrading your software license.

The Top Toolbar has these options:

Menu Edit options

You can find Add Item and all the other option related to menu structure here:

Specifically the Add Item is the "Cross" image in which you can click to see the 3 available options.

Add menu item

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Using an asp.net form in a mega menu
Support Case Month: July 2013

Hi Kostas

I have a new support request, but linked to this previous one (below).

I would like to create dynamic mega menus using a UL/LI structure generated by ASP.

Our menu format uses 5 columns created by a div structure. The attached txt file shows the full html version which works with AWM but is not dynamic. 

We can replace the existing links with UL/LI structures, but I expect that to achieve a controlled 5 column layout we would need 5 separate UL/LI structures (one per div). 

Is this going to work?!

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
John

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello John,

If you need to use 5 DIVs then the answer is yes, you would need 5 different menus which is not the best solution.

Why don't you use one div that holds the whole ul/li structure for your menu?

Check the AllWebMenus sample ul/li structure to get an idea how the menu is populated in ul/li.

menu structure code

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!
