Initial Email Subject: Question on menu layout
Support Case Month: July 2013

The menu I am working on is actually on the inside pages of the above website.

I am attempting to have a basic horizontal menu with dropdowns.  On the right end of the menu, I want to just have a few icons (facebook, mail, home).  I am attempting to make the size of those buttons, smaller (closer together).  Right now my little icons are spaced at least 112px apart, even though I have set their custom size to at least 30px.

Can the buttons be different sizes within a menu bar?

Hello,

When you have a menu set to act as a menubar then all the items will be widened to fit the whole width.

If you want the menu items to keep their width please do the following setting:

"Do not widen items" in  this way it will keep covering the whole width with the background of the menu and will not widen the menu items.

do not widen items in menubar

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: iPhone link "scroll wheel"
Support Case Month: May 2013

Hello,

Where is the option to enable on mobile browsers like the iPhone for instance... the scrolling select wheel?  I'm finding that I would rather enable that option than try to use the buttons on the mobile devices.  I would rather use the allwebmenus on the desktop and tablet versions of the websites, then use the scroll wheel.  I don't like the way the above link looks on an iPhone.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

Regarding your question, I am afraid that we do not currently support the iPhone wheel at all. Still you could improve your menu by making sure that it at least uses up the available space! My suggestion is that you create three responsive versions:

1) for pages up to 780px, set your menu to have a minimum width of 693px;

2) for pages between 455px and 779px, set the menu to be a menubar with a right margin of 14px

3) for pages smaller than 455px, set the menu to be a menubar with two rows and a right margin of 14px

Initial Email Subject: mega menus
Support Case Month: April 2013

I am just getting started with AllWebMenus Pro and am trying to create a mega menu but don't see that option in your style list. Can you walk me through how to do this?

Thank you,
Terri

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Terri,

Regarding the mega-menu, this can be achieved by adding a single submenu item that uses the “HTML – Full Mode”. This way you can add custom HTML to create the content of your mega-menu. You can see examples of this and download the menu projects in our online examples page:

http://www.likno.com/examples.html?example=mega_dropdown_menu1

http://www.likno.com/examples.html?example=mega_dropdown_menu2

In order to use an image with a link, you can add an HTML code similar to the following:

<a href="http://www.mysite.com/">
      <img src="myimage.jpg" style="border: none;">
</a>

To create a submenu that takes up the full screen, set it as a menubar:

menubar mega menu

Finally in standard floating menus, if you want to use an image, simply add the image and link in the appropriate fields:

menu image property

I hope the above were helpful. Please let me know if you need anything else.

Support Case Month: June 2012

Greetings,
I cant seem to find an answer to my question elsewhere, so, I am designing a website that is based on percentage and not pixels, it is set to be 76% of window size.  I am placing the menu at the top, within a table, centered. However, it will not stay within the table and hangs over the page on either side.
I had to insert some html so that the menu would appear over the flash movie, but this "hangover" is on every page, not just the one with the flash.
I know the menu would have to adjust itself along with the webpage according to browser specs, I also know the menu actually appears "above" the page, and is not part of the page. So, that said. I am at a loss as to what to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

It seems that the menu works fine as long as the browser window is wide enough.

From this I gather that you have correctly set the “menubar” settings. However you also have significant paddings in your menu that do not allow it to become smaller than a given width.

Please check the following properties and change both the padding and margin to 0:

Thank you for your quick reply. I changed the padding settings to 0 as you suggested and when I view the pages "live" within Adobe Dreamweaver everything looks perfect!  The menu is perfectly aligned on all pages.  But once they are uploaded to the server the pages do not appear the same. The menu sits above the table. I tried changing the vertical align to top, bottom, middle, but nothing changes. I have the valign set at default now. I uploaded all the awmdata files as well as the menu.js and the pages themselves, still once it is online, it will not line up. I am at a loss.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

Is your menu still set as a menubar? Can you export and send me your menu project so that I can further research this?

Hello Kostas,
As requested, I have attached the zipped file.
I should tell you that this menu is from one of the pre-made templates. I have made many menus using this program, but never one this fancy. I had changed the base color, but went back to the original. It was never saved as a menubar.
I have another machine with a 15" screen. That one shows the menu sitting just above the table where it should be nested. In 17" everything is fine. My client wants a "flashy" navigation bar and I am not great at doing that from scratch so I thought this would be the answer.
Thanks for your assistance.
Michele

Hello,

I have made some minor changes to your menu to make it look better.

1) added a minimum width to the main menu group

2) removed the “distance between items” that created something like a border

3) added a normal border so that it is also visible before the first and after the last item.

To complete the changes, you can also change the following in your page, from:

To:

style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747">

Thank you so much. I will try this.  Not so sure about the border before and after. It took me forever to figure out how to get rid of that. LOL   I will see if I can figure it out again. :-)  
I'll let you know how I made out.
Thank you again and again.

Hello Kostas,
Oh dear! It is not perfect on my screen here at work. It looked good from home, but not here. It is "hanging" again. Just a tiny bit on each side, but enough to be noticeable. It's fine on the index page, but the others, not so much. All the pages are set at 75% so I don't know why it would be different on all but the index page. I changed the awm code to below, as you so graciously provided and it was great, until I had to add a link.

<td height="32" style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747"><div align="center" id="awmAnchor-menu"></div></td>

Also, last night I tried to update my version of AllWebMenus PRO with latest version. But when I tried to download the program from your primary download location, I kept getting a message saying windows couldn't locate something or other. I was so tired at that point, I didn't attempt to try it again. I will try it again tonight and let you know what the error message is saying.
I bet you just wish I would go away! LOL
Michele

Are you referring to this?

menu in website

I had to zoom my browser in order to notice that the menu is a pixel or two off on the right side!

I guess this is because after you added the new item the menu became just a bit too big. Two things can help resolve this issue:

1) decrease the item padding (if there is any):

2) make sure that the “Uniform Items” property is NOT checked:

Greetings,
Yes, I worked it out. I followed your directions and it works great now. Thank you again.
Now I have to figure out why I cant download the newest version of AllWeb. I didn't try it last night, I was too tired.  Will try it tonight.
Thank you, Kostas.
