Hello, we have released a new version of AllWebMenus Pro: Version 5.3 build #900.

Check out What's New

- Multiple .AWM projects can now be simultaneously loaded within a single instance of the AllWebMenus application. Copy & Paste actions can now be performed among the multiple loaded projects.

multiple menu projects

- Enhanced the Expression Web 4 Add-in.

- The menu now hides when its positioning element (or any of its parents) is hidden. Similarly, if this positioning element becomes visible the menu also becomes visible.

- The "Automatic Highlight Item" functionality is now possible even when the "Advanced Floating" feature is enabled (used not to be).

- Fixed an issue with some Style Editor properties that did not properly hold their values (submenu Header values).

- Fixed an IE issue regarding "awm_pos_msg" that caused IE to consume CPU resources.

I have an example menu built up in the web menu builder that is really excellent, and I can see parts of it in my report page, but all of the pieces are not correctly displaying.  I am pretty sure that it is something that I am just not doing right. 

I really like the flexibility.  This is going to be perfect for our team once we have the real example able to be demonstrated.

Thanks again for your help,

Mark

Dear Mark,

For the menu, it is possible that the problems are caused by the fact that you cannot add the Linking Code directly after the <body> tag  (which is the expected place to put it).

Please try checking this option in the Project Properties:

menu linking code within tags

One last issue that is serious that I must resolve.

We are planning using these menus as blocks in multiple places on the same page.  I just now discovered that the way that I have it configured now, even though I have separate paths and separate anchor positioning IDs, that it doesn’t want to put more than one of these menus on a page.  I desperately hope that you have a configuration option that will accommodate an unlimited number of menus on the same page.

Dear Mark,

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:

add multiple menus

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.

Support Case Month: March 2012

Hi. 
I have two users (user R and user M) who udpate the same site.  If user R makes an update and then M makes an update later on R's updates are overwritten (and vise versa).  
Does Likno allow more than one user to make an update to the same site within minutes of each other (or hours, days)?
Please advise

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am not sure I understand what you mean. If I understand correctly, then this is not related to Likno at all.

Assuming that you talk about AllWebMenus, if someone uploads some files online and then someone else uploads some other files with the same name, your first files are lost (overwritten).

It is the editors responsibility to make sure that (s)he opened the new updated project file so that no changes are lost.

This is not something we can control. You upload the Likno files just like any other file (e.g. a text file) and they are overwritten the same way.

Hi

I am working with {NAME REMOVED}.  I am user M.  When user R makes an update he finishes with loading file ‘menu.js’.

If I make an update I too finish with loading the ‘menu.js file’.  We are finding that the information we are installing is being overwritten.

In summary, two people are trying to update the same menu.js  (at different times) but for some reason changes get lost. 

Please assist

Thanks

Dear Michael (and Jean),

As I tried to explain to my previous email, this is a “procedural” problem. If both M and R had a word file, then each did a change and uploaded the file in turn, the second upload would overwrite the first. The same thing happens now with the menu.

The solution in both cases would be to make sure that you have the latest version before adding any new changes. To do this, I suggest that when a user compiles the menu and uploads changes (s)he should also upload the menu project file (use “File -> Export -> To ZIP”). Then the next user to edit the menu should first download the latest project file, make the new changes, then upload both the compiled menu and a new export of the project file.

In any case, the two (or more) users should always make sure that they have the latest project (with the latest changes) before adding any new changes.

Dear support,

We received your response. We still have questions that hopefully you can shed some light on.

There are two individuals building and making changes to the web site menu. When only one individual updates the menu by copying the “menu.js” file to the website, everything works file. However, when the other individual copies the newly created menu.js file, adds it to their desktop and makes changes to the menu, everything the last person changed is lost.

Keeping this in mind I noticed the pop up after compiling the menu and it suggests copying 3 files to the website, not just one.(shown below) The problem is the location of the “\awmdata\menu” file. It doesn’t appear in the same folder as all the other files. (shown below)

1. Please advise where the \awmdata\menu file can be located so that we can load it along with the other two files. Will this solve our problem?...Loading all 3 files?

2. Do the files need to be Zipped as per your e-mail instructions?

Your reply is greatly appreciated,

Hello,

Please see the answers below:

1. "However, when the other individual copies the newly created menu.js file, adds it to their desktop and makes changes to the menu, everything the last person changed is lost."

But why do you edit the "menu.js" file? This is what you do? This is the compiled menu file and should not be directly edited, as it is full of javascript and you will not know what to change, etc. Changing this file is not supported. Unless, you do not really mean "menu.js" but "menu.awm", which is the project file to open in AllWebMenus.

Still, I am not clear. You change the "menu.js" file (either manually or by compiling its "menu.awm" project), upload it in REPLACEMENT of the existing "menu.js" file online and you expect that the changes of the last person to be maintained? How could that be, since you replace the last "menu.js" with your new "menu.js"?

2. "Please advise where the \awmdata\menu file can be located so that we can load it along with the other two files. Will this solve our problem?...Loading all 3 files?"

The \awmdata\menu is not a file, it is a folder. It is mentioned at the screen:

menu file path

This has nothing to do with the FILE "menu.js", it is just a folder (inside the "awmdata" folder) that contains the image files of the menu. Just upload the "awmdata" folder and this subfolder will also be uploaded within it.

3. "Do the files need to be Zipped as per your e-mail instructions?"

No, the compiled files should not be zipped, this is irrelevant. We refer to the PROJECT .AWM file (the SOURCE) with which you edit the menu within AllWebMenus. This file is the one that you should make sure that BOTH developers use its latest version, so when anyone of the compiles you always get the latest changed inside the COMPILED menu file (menu.js) that is the one uploaded to the server. We just suggested that each one ZIPs the project (use “File -> Export Project -> To ZIP”) and send it to the other one (or upload it somewhere on your website for the other one to download it), so that the other one opens it and make changes to the menu, etc.

I will need to make multiple web pages with different tab content.  Will I need to compile a new tab every time or can I just keep a template and manipulate the content within the web page?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

If you use the UL/LI or DIVs method, then you only need one template project and you can change the content in your page(s) accordingly.

Support Case Month: October 2012

I have been a subscriber since around 2003 for AllWebMenu’s Pro. I just renewed and I’m wondering if AllWebMenu’s do something like the navbar seen here? http://www.softlayer.com/

Specifically, I want to put multiple links in one, larger drop down box. Any advice on whether or not AllWebMenus Pro can handle that?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Andy,

Yes, this is possible. It is called “Mega-Menu” and you can achieve it using the “Full-HTML” feature. You can see a similar example here:

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

mega menu html full mode

Note that in order to achieve this, you need to have a single item per submenu, where this item is in HTML format and contains your links etc.
