How does the Slider tool work with XSitePro.  Do you create pics outside of XSitePro, then load them into XSitePro somehow?  Is it a true Slider like Wow Slider, for example ...or do you have to click on an arrow to move them across the page.

Hello Larry,

You can populate your pictures trough DIV elements, UL/LI elements so in this case you can have the pictures wherever you want and just use the correct paths inside the DIV tags or UL tags.

Another way is to create the slider and select the population method "with items inside the compiled project", so in this case you will upload to your server the compiled files and you just insert a js script in the page where you want the slider to appear.

On Monday we are launching a new version of the Likno Web Scroller Builder in which you will have the choice to populate your images through RSS services like Flickr or Picasa.

Likno Web Scroller Builder is a powerful application that lets you create any slider you want. Of course, you can have a slider that slides without having to click or mouse over on any arrow.

Check the screenshots below to see how you can do that.

This is one of the  examples that you can find in the application.

To make the slider items slide automatic check this property.

And you should uncheck this property in order not to use navigation arrows.

no slider navigation arrows

Kostas,

I have main navigation buttons that work with Chrome, IE 8 and 9, Safari and Opera.  But they do not work with Firefox.  Can you have a look at the problem?

Dear Terry,

It seems that there is an error in your scripts. Specifically you are passing an “event” variable that does not exist. Since you do not seem use this variable anywhere, I suggest that you remove it.

Change the following line from:

function mNavi(event, id, n) {

To:

function mNavi(id, n) {

and all the links that are like this:

<a class="navlink" id="navlink2" href='javascript:mNavi(event, "a#navlink2", 2);' >

into something like this:

<a class="navlink" id="navlink2" href='javascript:mNavi("a#navlink2", 2);' >

Best Regards,

Initial Email Subject: CSS menu compiles with JavaScript?
Support Case Month: April 2013

Hi,
I am using AllWebMenus Pro version 5.3 build #908 to make a CSS horizontal dropdown menu.  My understanding was that it would not require or use javascript at the cost of some of the more dynamic features.  When I compile the menu and link it to my webpage though, It creates a "menu.js" file (along with a "menu.css" file) and this javascript code is inserted into the head tag of my linked page as well.  Unfortunately, the menu is not appearing in Chrome version 26.0.1410.43 anyway.
I want a menu that is pure CSS.  Why is the javascript file even being generated and is it really necessary?  I appreciate the help in advance.
Jeff

Dear Jeff,

When a menu is “Pure CSS”, this means that it is able to function without any need for JavaScript. Still, there is no reason to cut back on the extra features when the viewer’s browser supports JavaScript!

In our case, the generated JS file only adds some extra features such as keyboard navigation and compatibility for older browsers that could not support CSS menus (such as IE6).

If you remove the JS file you will see that your menu still looks the same and is fully functional with the mouse in all recent browsers.

Finally regarding Chrome 26, something must be wrong in your implementation, so I will need to see your page to find what is wrong. Please send me the URL so that I can have a look.

Kostas,

Thank you for clarifying the inclusion of the javascript files but something there seems to be amiss.  My menu visibility issue was a foolish error - I was using a CLASS to define the style rather than the default ID.  (I would love to be able to specify this difference before compiling but Dreamweaver's "search and replace all" feature does the trick as well.)

Now if I leave the awmdata.js file attached to my index.php page then the menu appears below the header image (as it should) for only a second before popping the menu elements into the upper left corner of the page.  Removing this link to awmdata.js at least puts the menu where it should be but there is also something with the size of the parent item when hovering over an element with a submenu.  I also am not seeing the arrow icon I wanted to use to indicate that there is a submenu.

I seem to be required to define a static width+height for menu items.  Is there no way to dynamically size a menu item to accommodate its unique size?  Removing the width:0px from the #mainnav > li element seems to work but how would I opt for this within the AllWebMenus interface?

Jeff

Dear Jeff,

I just checked your pages and I see that you have removed most of the code from the CSS, so your menu is not really a menu anymore:

menu preview

Regarding the top-left positioning, this is most probably because you have indeed set this positioning in the application. If you do not have any JavaScript, then the menu appears wherever you put the UL/LI code, but you can never have a pixel-perfect positioning this way. When you have JavaScript, then the positioning property of the application is used instead. I am guessing you have left this to the default which is top-left of window with an offset of 10px:

menu positioning

You could use a positioning Relative to Element with class=“container” to make sure that this works properly when you have JavaScript.

Regarding the “HasSubMenu image”, this is unfortunately one of the features that only works when you do have JavaScript enabled, as it is not possible to perform such checks with CSS. If you wanted this to work with pure CSS, then you would have to manually add the “daddy” to each LI that has a submenu, for example:

<ul id="mainnav">

    <li><a href="treasurepools.x10.mx">HOME</a></li>
    <li class="daddy"><a href="treasurepools.x10.mx/services">SERVICES</a>
            <ul>
              <li>
                  <a href="
treasurepools.x10.mx/services/cleaning">
                     CLEANING
                  </a>
              </li>

              <li>
                  <a href="
treasurepools.x10.mx/services/maintenance">
                     MAINTENANCE
                  </a>
              </li>

              <li>
                  <a href="
treasurepools.x10.mx/services/construction">
                     CONSTRUCTION
                  </a>
              </li>
            </ul>
    </li>
    <li><a href="treasurepools.x10.mx/faq">FAQ</a></li>

</ul>

I am using Frontage 2002 (10.6308.6870) on windows 7. I am running 5.3 Build #904.

I can import the Frontpage navigation structure but when I try to generate the menu Allwebmenus stops working.

Hello Kostas,

I do get this message

automation error

Best regards

Geoff

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Geoff,

This means that AllWebMenus does not have enough access rights to do what you are asking. This can be caused if you have set the FrontPage to run in “Compatibility Mode” in windows 7, as this also gives it administrator rights.

I believe the easiest way to correct this issue, is to run AllWebMenus “as Administrator”. To do this permanently, you need to right-click on the desktop shortcut, select Properties, then the “Compatibility” tab, then check the “Run this program as an administrator” option. Note that this will only work when you start AllWebMenus from the desktop icon. It will not work if you start AllWebMenus by double-clicking a project file.
