It seems that you can adjust the sub menu width (on sliding menus) up to 3 levels and then beyond the third level the last setting is used, is there any way to adjust beyond the third level?

Also can you have more than one instance of a sliding menu on one web page (we want 2)?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

First of all, you can have as many menus (sliding or not) as you want. The only requirement is that you give each menu a different Compile Name:

different compile menu name

Regarding the styling of deeper levels, I am afraid that you cannot change the style for a whole level, but you can still achieve what you want in a different way.

Customize the style of one item to create the look & feel you want:

customize menu item

Then, to save time, you can right-click on the item and copy-paste these values to all the items you want:

copy paste menu values to items

Initial Email Subject: Display of multiple menus on one webpage
Support Case Month: July 2012

I am trying to display two separate menus on the same webpage. One is horizontal and the other vertical. I have linked both menus to the webpage using the compile function. Each menu has a different name. Both are positioned using the element option. The menus are compiled into the awmdata folder. The awmdata folder and the .js scripts are in the www.ok-safe.com/ root path. The horizontal menu displays and the vertical does not. The menu type that is not displaying is #15 - Smooth Scroll. The allocated space of 1200 x 500 for the menu is evident but no menu (see above URL). I am at a loss as to why the #15 menu type doesn't display. What is the likely problem? 

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

It seems that you have set your vertical menu (“Randy_Bright_Smooth_Scroll”) to be populated in the page using a UL/LI structure.

However there is no such structure in your page, hence your menu has no items! Note that when you select the UL/LI method, you have to enter the UL/LI structure in your page(s) manually.

I suggest that you set the menu back to being populated within the application:

populate menu inside project

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi,

I’ve been using AWM Pro (currently 5.3 build #892) for a few years now with Coffee Cup’s Visual Site Designer.
I haven’t changed the menu for about nine months and have run into some problems in trying to have my new menu appear on the site.
I have three questions:
1 - I’ve never been able to have the menu work in the site unless I manually add it onto every page, one at a time (using their HTML inserter - into “Body”). No big deal until now. I have been, and will be, adding more and more pages and it’s getting too timely to individually add a menu onto each page.
Is there anything I can do about this, or is there a limitation within my web authoring software that prevents me from just entering the code on one page and having it show up throughout the site, as your tutorials suggest?
2 - I have re-designed my menu, added and deleted some links. To test it, I created a copy of the site on a sub-domain. I cannot seem to get the new menu to appear even after completely deleting the old menu and files from the site folder and re-entering the new files/folder in the root directory.
What could I be doing incorrectly AND as an alternative:  How could I update my menu without having to completely create a new menu each time (once I get all this to work again)?
3 - My menu has radius corners. They have been rendering just fine in all browsers. All of a sudden in the latest Firefox (14.0.1) version there are no radius corners showing. Anything to do for that?

Thank you in advance,
Robert

Dear Robert,

1) Does Coffee Cup support the use of Template pages? If so, then you should be able to add the Linking Code only to the Template page and it will propagate to the rest of the pages automatically.

Note here that you only need to add the Linking Code once. After that, whenever you make changes to the menu you only need to recompile and upload the new files.

2) I cannot know for sure what went wrong. Can you please send me the URL so that I can have a look? Most likely cause I guess is a wrong path in the Linking Code, or a wrong Positioning setup.

3) This is a known issue that has already been corrected in the latest version. It occurred because FF14 changed the CSS code they use for rounded corners. Just recompile with build 894 to correct the problem.

Thanks for your reply.
1) Coffee Cup says: "Visual Site Designer does not use a CMS format", so I think it means, no Template Page available.
    Is there an alternative?
2) This is a "testsite" with only a few of my web pages. The menu was "saved as" from the menu on my main site.  I changed the folder to "....testsite" to be in the root folder of this testsite.
I did not link the menu to pages, I took the code and entered it on each page with VSD's html inserter (as I have always done).
3) Downloaded 894. I'll "recompile" when I get all this cleared up first :)
    Whenever I recompile, do I need to change the code on each page (given no template) in order for the menu to work?

Dear Robert,

1) Do you have a local copy of your files? If so, then you should be able to automatically Link the menu to your pages through AWM. If not, then I am afraid that you will probably have to insert it manually as you do now.

2) I tested your site, and it seems that you did not upload the compiled menu files to the correct location. According to your Linking Code, the compiled menu file is expected at:

http://www.testsite.nierikasol.net/Site-Menu.js

3) No need to re-Link. You generally NEVER need to re-Link to a page that already has a Linking Code. This is so much true, that even the Linking Code of AllWebMenus v3 (2004) will still work with the compiled files of the latest AllWebMenus v5.

(of course you do need to update your Linking Code if you move or rename the compiled files)

1) I create the site locally, so I have all files on disk. I don't understand how to "automatically Link the menu to your pages through AWM" though. Would you be so kind as to give me step-by-step instructions?

2) I'm confused here too. I have attached two captures of my folders on my server (earthlink). Capture1 shows the AWM files under the root "testsite" directory, and Capture2 shows the same files in the testsite/public directory. Am I missing a basic concept here. I obviously knew what I was doing the last time I did this a year ago---my menus have worked perfectly, but it seems it all escapes me now!

3) So to make sure I understand --- this is the "linking code":

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR TESTSITE-Menu-2 (CSS MENU)******** -->
<link href="TESTSITE-Menu-2.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script charset="UTF-8" src="TESTSITE_Menu_2.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR TESTSITE-Menu-2 (CSS MENU)******** -->

and if I have it installed on all my pages (or can get the single installation to work on all pages) what files do I need to upload to the server (and where) to make the new menus appear/work?

Thank you very much for your time!
Robert

1) After you compile, you can click the “Link menu to web pages” button:

link menu to web pages

This will take you to the Link dialog where you can select files and link to them.

select files to link menu

2) Did you maybe change the compiled menu name? This is your Linking Code:

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR Site-Menu ******** -->

<script type="text/javascript">var MenuLinkedBy="AllWebMenus [4]",awmMenuName="Site-Menu",awmBN="866";awmAltUrl="";</script><script charset="UTF-8" src="Site-Menu.js" type="text/javascript"></script><script type="text/javascript">awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR Site-Menu ******** -->

While this is looking for “Site-Menu.js”, I do not see such a file in your screenshots. Instead I see a file named “TESTSITE-Menu-2.js”.

This suggests that you changed the Compiled name, but you did not update your Linking Code to point to the new file.

3) The Linking Code you showed me here is from a CSS menu. There are different Linking Codes for JS menu, Server-Side menu etc. If you change the type (genre) of the menu then you also need to update the Linking Code.

The compiled files also differ depending on the type of menu you selected. The 100% safe choice is to compile into a new folder so that you know which files were generated. If you compile into an existing folder with many files, you can still spot the new ones if you “sort by date”.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Do you mean that you want to have two menus in your page? if so, you just need to make sure that they have different "compiled menu names" under "Project Properties -> Folders".

Each time I republish my pages I have to relink menus even though the pages have same file names.  Is there a way around this?

Thanks for your assistance,

Larry

Dear Larry,

Which web-page editor are you using? If you are using something like FrontPage, you should also use the related AllWebMenus plugin to avoid this issue.

I am using X-Site Pro.  Is there a solution for this software?

Larry

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Larry,

Did you not add the Linking Code directly into X-Site Pro, when you edit the pages there?

I believe that this would be the best solution. Simply copy-paste your Linking Code into your pages in X-Site

Or even better, simply copy-paste the Linking Code into your template file (if you have one) so that all the pages take it from there automatically.

Just make sure that the path (src=“…”) starts with “/” (root-relative) so that it will work regardless of the subfolder your pages are in.
