I was just wondering if it is possible to have the same menu in two place on the same page, i.e. header and footer, and if so how to do it.

Thank you for your assistance,

Larry

Hello Larry,

You could have the same menu in two places in the same page. All you should need to do is: Change the “Compiled Name” of the menu in the Project Properties.

Change the positioning (position one according to your header and the other according to your footer).

You should leave the folders as they are by default so that all of your menus see the same library files.

Things to note:

1) All your menus should be compiled with the same AllWebMenus version.

2) You should make sure that you properly Compiled, Linked and uploaded your second menus as you did with the first.

3) There is no limit to the number of  menus you can add this way.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

I am looking to make a wordpress site that resembles  http://diablo3blog.blogspot.com/ I want my blog and pages to have the ability to have multiple top menus like the above link as well as a side bar link menu using http://wpmegamenu.com/help/  or your floating menu .
Is this something your program would be able to do without using any drop down menus of any sort?  Is your plugin compatible with most wordpress themes or do I need a theme made by you?

Hello,

You can easily achieve the specific “multiple menu” effect in two ways:

1) You can actually have multiple menus linked into WordPress, or even better

2) You can create a single menu with multiple rows:

multi row horizontal menu

Regarding the left menu, this is a pretty simple vertical menu, so no problems here either. The only thing that we do not support is this specific mouse-over effect in the menu items.

Overall, AllWebMenus will allow you to create and add as many menus as you want in your WordPress site. Each menu can have any menu type you want (horizontal, vertical, sliding), with multiple rows/columns (or not), with or without submenus (sliding or floating), etc.

Of course our menus will work with all WordPress themes, and in all the latest browsers and mobile devices.

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.

Initial Email Subject: Menu question
Support Case Month: October 2012

Kostas,

1. Can you please give us some instructions on how we do the below.  …… Set up another duplicate menu file in another area of our website. Basically the main menu will have relative URL paths and the duplicated menu in the OS Commerce section of our website will have absolute URL paths because we are having a problem with duplicate content … After users select the sign-in on OS Commerce .. then form that point on any other links / pages they visit remain in https mode versus http causing search engine to index https pages as duplicate content.

When we look at the compiled files from 2010 they show the following:  ‘data’ folder; div_scroll; menu.js; wastecare.awm and wastecare.pgt

When we look at the current compiled files all we see is the ‘data’ folder and the menu.js  file.

Can you please outline the steps in detail for doing what we want to do., We are not understanding why the current compiled files are different from the compiled files from 2010.

Basically we will always want both menu’s to be identical except the main menu will have relative URL paths and the OS Commerce menu will have absolute URL paths. That being the case our developer (Syed) says that when we add another webpage to our site that we want to add to the menu we can just simply add it to the main menu and then cut and paste the changes to the duplicate / OS Commerce menu…… but the person that does these menu updates says she doesn’t understand how a simple cut and paste can be used because in her opinion she would have to basically start from scratch each time with each menu change versus simple cut and paste from one to the other. When you have 3 columns to each menu tab it is extremely difficult and time consuming to get all the spacing re-adjusted each time a page is added to the menu … (We wish this was corrected in your software so it would be much easier when columns are used like on our website.

2. Anyway, can you please explain the process that will be required when trying to copy incremental changes (pages added) from the main menu to the  duplicate OS Commerce menu.

Thanks

Matt

Dear Matt,

Regarding having multiple menus (in the same page or in different pages- it makes no difference) all you should need to do is to change the “Compiled Name” of the menu in the Project Properties:

clip_image001

You should leave the folders as they are by default so that all of your menus see the same library files.

Things to note:

1) All your menus should be compiled with the same AllWebMenus version.

2) You should make sure that you properly Compiled, Linked and uploaded your second menu as you did with the first.

3) There is no limit to the number of menus you can add this way.

Regarding the copy-paste from one menu to the other, I am afraid that this is not currently available, so you need to indeed add the new menu item in both menus. Soon however (within this month) we will release a new version that will allow you to open multiple projects in the same AllWebMenus instance, so this will also resolve the “copy-paste between projects” issue.

PS: You say something about “starting from scratch” when a new item is added… I believe I probably misunderstood you, but this is not true in any case! You just need to open each project and add the new item in each one. You never have to rebuild the whole menu.

Thanks Kostas,

Why is our compiled file set from 2010 different than the current compiled file set?  In 2010 the compiled file set showed 5 items > menu.js +’data’ folder + div_scroll +wastecare.awm + wastecare.pgt   -  On the current compiled set it just showed the menu.js +’data’ folder  (and the data folder items were a little different than the 2010 data folder items).

Can you let us know exactly which files should appear as a complete compiled file set (because maybe there is something wrong?)

Thus far when we tried copying / duplicating our main menu and placing another copy in the OS Commerce part of our website (so we could use the absolute URL paths in that area) …..the layout was all messed up (and not identical to the main menu).. For example on our menu tabs we have 3 columns of selections on each tab (because we have lots of selections on each tab) and the Category groupings and items within each of the grouping were all messed up compared to the main menu.

To see what I mean. Go to our Main Menu here and look under the Tab called ‘Vertical Balers’

http://www.wastecare.com/

Then go to this menu below in the OS Commerce area and look under the same Tab ‘Vertical Balers’ and you will see a big difference in layout:

https://www.wastecare.com/O/catalog/index.php

Of course this would be extremely confusing to customers so we are trying to figure out what went wrong.

Thanks

Matt

Reply From: Matt

Yes, I think we have it working just fine now. We mixed up the duplicate / copied menu file and instead somehow accidentally used an old menu file from a few years ago.

Thanks

Matt

Support Case Month: October 2012

Hi

I have an interesting problem. I just upgraded to Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 and when I update a menu change, each time I click anywhere I get another update request and soon I have a desktop full of requests to update the menu. It seems there is a loop going on between Dreamweaver CS6 and AllWebMenus 5. I have to force shut down the programs to end the loop. I cannot use AllWebMenus this way. Is there a compatibility issue with CS6?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

This is very weird indeed. We do not have any similar complaints from any of our customers.

Does this happen even with the latest AllWebMenus application and Dreamweaver plugin?

Can you send me a screenshot of the problem? Also please send me screenshots of the AllWebMenus "about" box and of the plugin info clearly showing the version in both cases.

Then you can try installing the latest versions of both the application and plugin to see if this fixes the problem.
