Hi,
I'm just at the ordering page and would like to know how can I use the menu on a WordPress installation?

Hello Pete,

We have an AllWebMenus plugin to help you insert the menu you create in AllWebMenus Pro to your WordPress website. You could see more information about this here: http://www.likno.com/addins/wordpress-menu.html

You install the AllWebMenus WordPress plugin to your WordPress installation, you choose some settings for the menu, like what menu data you would like to use, the position you want it to display in, the menu type (Dynamic, Mixed, Static) and then you get the code for the menu. You Open the AllWebMenus Pro, you go to Add-ins -> WordPress Menu -> Import/Update Menu Structure from WordPress in order to have the menu structure. You create it in the way that fits your needs and then you compile it for WordPress. This creates a .zip file that you need to upload in your WordPress through the AllWebMenus plugin.

Let me know if you need any more further information.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: May 2013

I am in the process of adding a WordPress installation to my web site. I will be needing to maintain *both* handcoded pages AND WordPress pages/posts, and would like to maintain a single menu for *ALL* pages. I have been using AllWebMenus on our site for a while now, and would like to use the existing menu that I maintain on my handcoded pages on my WordPress pages, too. I don't want to control any menu content with WordPress ... I want my regular menu and navigation to stay the same wherever a user is on my site. The WordPress plugin *seems* to be about imposing the WordPress menu structure into the AWM menu ... but I don't want to do that.

Here's a URL for an example of one of my hand coded pages that I will be keeping:
{URL REMOVED}

I would like to place the *SAME* menu into my WordPress header, which you can see here:
{URL REMOVED}

Is this possible to do? What do I need to do to accomplish this?

Thanks!!

Hello,

The WordPress plugin is there only to help you with the integration. It does offer you the ability to use the structure of a WordPress menu, but it does not impose this.

If you set the menu to be “Static” online, then you do not need to import the menu structure at all (you’ll hit the “publish” button in the plugin, but do not import the code into AllWebMenus). Just compile your existing menu for WordPress and upload it using the plugin “publish”.

Furthermore if you want a single compile, you do not even need to install or use the plugin at all. In this case, just manually add the menu Linking Code into the “header.php” of your WordPress Theme.

Just make sure that your positioning is ok. For example if you are using a positioning “Relative to Element” make sure that the specific element also exists in the WordPress pages.

Initial Email Subject: Issue with AllWebMenus and WordPress
Support Case Month: May 2013

Hi, there.  I'm having an issue with AllWebMenus and WordPress of which I cannot figure out.

I have a working menu built in AllWebMenus and I've linked it to my WordPress site. 

For the AWM plugin settings in WordPress I've set my Menu Type to "Dynamic" and I've created a Menu in the WP dashboard and assigned that menu in the AWM plugin settings.

I've pasted the Menu Structure Code generated by the plugin into desktop application.

Basically everything is working fine, in that I see my menu, my menu is truly dynamic, and I can add menu items in WordPress and they appear as expected.

My issue has to do with the background images I'm using for my menu items.

All of my menu items have the same background image, except for three of them.

In the desktop app in the style editor I've given my menu items Main Items Style this background image:  "tab.png".

And that works.

main menu item background image

But for the three items that I want to have a different background image, I've selected "custom values" on the Menu Editor side, and assigned a background image of "tab-arrow.png" to those three buttons, like this:

menu item specific background image

In the app Menu Preview the graphic looks correct, in that for those three buttons it shows the alternate background image.

However when I compile my menu, go back to WordPress and import it, my buttons that have a different background image assigned to them never show the alternate background image.  They will only show the background image assigned to the Main Items Style group.

Here is how it should look (notice that Articles, Products & Programs, and Services have a different graphic with an arrow):

clip_image001

And this is how it compiles and imports into WordPress (graphic does not appear.:

clip_image001[5]

Anyway, I hope that makes sense.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,

Randy

Dear Randy,

I am afraid that customizations are not supported when you are using a dynamic WordPress menu. As you already found out, any customizations that you use will simply be ignored online. This is because the menu cannot be certain that the item you see locally will indeed exist online.

Still, if I understand correctly, these are the only items that have a submenu, right? If so, then you can add your extra image as a “has submenu” image, which is a standard style option and will be applied to items that indeed have a submenu:

has submenu image

Hi Likno,
What about support for "EZGenerator"  webbuilder program, authoring tools ?
Thanks,
Frans

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Frans,

I am afraid that we do not have a plugin specifically for EZGenerator.

Nonetheless, AllWebMenus is very flexible and supports 99% of the builders out there (even if we do not know about them).

The minimum requirements are:

1) You must be able to add custom HTML code into your page (copy-paste from AllWebMenus)

2) You must be able to upload into your site the compiled files (JS & image) generated by AllWebMenus

For a full list of supported tools, please have a look here:

http://www.likno.com/web_authoring_tools.html

and for the generic instructions that will most likely cover EZGenerator, have a look here:

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?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

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.
