Hello Kostas,

How do I exactly use a menu dynamically, I mean populating it from database driven data? Also dynamically it can manage unlimited items/subitems or is there any restriction?

Many thanks for your very good support!

Paolo

Hello Paolo,

You need to use the "Server-Side Menus API":

http://www.likno.com/addins/dhtml-menu-serverside.html

Read the Help PDF (link there) for how to use it.

Please note that it is for advanced users and no implementation support can be given for free (because it requires programming focus, etc.)

We have no restriction on the number of items, unless the browser has problems with too many items.

Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Tabs Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Wolfgang
Initial Email Subject: tabs
Support Case Month: July 2012

Hi,
I would like to try out the tabs but cannot figure out how to get scrollbars into it with a fixed height. At the moment the text spills out of the tab. In your sample no.4 there appear only scrollbars if there is an external page.
What I find great is that the text remains in the last position if the user comes back to the tab with the scrollbars.
Will this also be without an external page?
Another question would be, I am using Dreamweaver for the Mac, but your program is only running under windows. Is it possible to get the created HTML code to my Mac Dreamweaver CS6 site. I do have access from my Windows running under VMWare Fusion to my Mac files.
Thanks in advance and by the way, your product is just great, very user-friendly, carefully designed with good help files.
Wolfgang

Hello,

Regarding the scrollbars, please go to the “Body CSS” field and add the following:

overflow: auto;

This should stop the “bleeding” of the body content and create the scrollbars you want.

Regarding the Mac interaction, the best way would be to manually copy-paste the Linking Code to your file(s). The Link window has two tabs. The first is for automatic linking to your pages and the second is for manual linking. Select the second tab, copy-paste the code it gives you to your page and (if required) adjust the path to where you will upload your files.

Hello Kostas,

thanks for your advice, it works.

To my surprise, the interaction with the Mac works fine. I can compile in Windows and point to the shared website on the mac drive, go to Dreamweaver on the Mac, click refresh and the changes are immediately visible. Also the automatic linking works.

It took me a while to figure out how to get the tabs onto my page, I was looking for some HTML code I can copy into my page until I found the hint in the help file to create a Div with an ID which points to the Likno tabs, and suddenly the tabs appeared in my page.

So far so good, but I ran into another problem: I need the tabs in a Template where I can change the content for the tabs every time I create a new page from the template.

To make it more simple I decided to use a link to a local file for the Tab-content. Therefore I need to change only the link name, which needs to be done in an editable region.

To compile every time new tabs for hundred of pages would be a nightmare if any changes have to be done.

I hope there is a solution, please let me know how this problem could be solved.

One more thing I would like to mention. After I changed the Page link from absolute to relative the preview in the Tabs Builder did not work anymore, but it works in the compiled page. Tab builder says he cannot find the file.

I also still struggle with the auto height, it is always about 250 pix high. I expect it going down to the end of the visible page.

Thanks in advance

Wolfgang

Dear WolfGang,

If I understand correctly, you want to have a single Tab project that you will use in several pages, each with different content (but same design).

The way to achieve this is to populate your Tabs through a UL/LI or DIVs structure.

In the “Project Tabs (F2)” select either the UL/LI or DIV population method, then go to the “Sample Code (F4)” to see a sample code that would populate the Tabs according to sample content you have set in the application.

This allows each page to have a different content, it allows having the content in a separate include file, it even allows automatically generated content (e.g. using PHP and MySQL).

Finally, regarding the auto-height, this can indeed be several pages tall , but please keep in mind that it does not work (and cannot work) for “external” files (which are really iFrames).

Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Accordion Builder, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Josef
Initial Email Subject: Accordion builder DRUPAL Addin
Support Case Month: July 2012

Hello,

I try to integrate an accordion in my Drupal 7 basic page node "Test" by using the Drupal Accordion Module Add-in with shortcode positioning.

Everything works fine if I use the accordion-builder option "Populate the accordion panes inside this project".

As soon as I choose the desired option "Populate the accordion panes inside your page, through a UL/LI structure" no accordions appear?
(The positioning is "embedded in page  replace the UL/LI structure that populates your accordion panes",  a <ul><li> structure exists on the node,  the shortcode is correctly edited on this node)

My accordion project is based upon "Example 01.lwac" (no changes).

So where is my mistake?

Thank you for help

Regards
Josef

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Josef,

I am afraid that the UL/LI population method is not currently supported by the Drupal plugin.

It is in the TODO list, but since you are the first to ever ask for this it was considered as a low-priority task until now.

I will forward this to our developer team so that it becomes a task of higher priority.

Dear Kostas,

thank you for your open answer - it's no good news. Because of this feature I even purchased an unlimited license today. I need this, because the website where we intend to use this function will have several content editors at different places - so I would be very glad if this documented feature will come very soon.

Regards
Josef

Dear Josef,

I have just uploaded a new Accordion release (and Drupal module) that supports ULLI and DIVs structure in Drupal.

Please download the Accordion Builder here:

http://www.likno.com/jquery-accordion/download.php

and the Drupal 7 module here:

http://www.likno.com/jquery-accordion/drupal-accordion.html

Let me know if you find any problems.

Important: due to a Drupal limitation, you should change your positioning to “Element” and use the ID you are given by the Drupal module. If you choose “replace ULLI/DIV structure” then the accordion will appear at the bottom of the page.

Example:

div element

Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Ken
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.

Support Case Month: June 2012

hi Kostas,

Sorry about my ignorance but I don't seem to make the menu work in all browsers. What am I doing wrong?
It works in Firefox and Opera
It is correctly placed in Explorer but it does not work It is misplaced in Safari and Google Chrome but somewhat works

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I checked your page and it seems that your menu is compiled with a VERY old version of AllWebMenus, released back in 2004.

This has several known issues with the latest browsers as the HTML standards and Internet browsers have changed vastly since then.

The solution is to upgrade to the latest AllWebMenus which fully supports all the latest browsers and mobile devices.

How?

- Login to your Likno User Area at http://www.likno.com/userarea

- Click the "View/Manage Licenses and Plans":

view manage menu licenses

- See there if your Update Plan has expired or not.

            If "expired" then click the "Renew" link and renew your Update Plan.

- Download the current Version (Build) ( http://www.likno.com/download.html ) and install it.

- In your Likno User Area, click the "Get Activation Code" link and get a new Activation Code for this updated installation:

get activation code

- Open your old project file (.awm) in AllWebMenus, re-compile it and then upload the new menu files (along with the "awmdata" folder) to your website.

Note that you may need to delete your browser’s Temporary Internet Files (or cache files) before refreshing the page in order to see the menu.

Thanks!

Kostas

I just bought a new version, before mid-month, on February this year.

When I consulted with you, at the time, you said that this version would solve the problem. Please look at the Home Page which I know I have modified it <index.htm>

This new version I have a license to, is already incorporated to my Dreamweaver Editor (The old version did not do that}

I tend to think that the problem resides within the "Positioning" item in the "Group Properties" editor:
"Automatically, Element, Top Left Corner, Top Left Corner, 0,0"

Please advise,
Roberto

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Roberto,

I double-checked your page, and the menu in the "index.html" is indeed from v3.1.528 which was released back in 2004.

I also checked your license this time and I see that you indeed upgraded it to v5 on Feb 13.

It would seem that you either:

1) did not compile your menu with the new version Or

2) did not upload the newly compiled files to the correct place.

Please double-check that your menu is compiled with the new version and that you uploaded the new compiled menu to your server:

Finally, do not forget to upload the "navmenu/awmData-canadamenu" folder which holds all the library files.

Let me know if you have any trouble with this.

Kostas

Hi Kostas,

I still cannot get the menu to work as it should, so I am sending you some grab screens (numbered in order) to advise me how to proceed.

Thank you...

Hello again,

I see that the online file is still the old one. Also, according to your screenshots the local files are old too.

I see a screenshot where you try to Link the menu to your pages using the "Link" button, but have you compiled your menu?

First you need to Compile the menu using the related button in the toolbar. Check that your local files have indeed changed and were created on today's date. Then upload the new files online.

One more thing to be aware of BEFORE you Compile your menu.

According to your screenshot, you have set your menu to be a “UL/LI” menu. This requires that you also add Structure Code into your pages, something that will most likely complicate things for you. I strongly recommend that you change your menu to “Populate menu inside this project”:

populate menu inside the project
