Initial Email Subject: issues with vertical submenus and scroll bars on chrome
Support Case Month: March 2013

Hi,

I have attached the awm, since the site is secured.

The problem is the vertical submenus, but only one Menu>Daily and any of the 3 items, and only on Chrome.  Once on a page the scroll bars (vertical and horizontal) show up for any item on the nav, once I move away they are fine. Cache emptied frequently.

The linking seems fine:

<body>

<!-- DO NOT MOVE! The following AllWebMenus linking code section must always be placed right AFTER the BODY tag-->

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR master ******** -->

<script type='text/javascript'>var MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [4]',awmMenuName='master',awmBN='DW';awmAltUrl='';</script>

<script charset='UTF-8' src='../../nav/master.js' type='text/javascript'></script>

<script type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR master ******** -->

Any thoughts would be helpful.

Thanks,
Tom

Dear Tom,

It seems that this issue is caused by a specific line in your “showCal.js” file:

variable conflict problem

This variable conflicts with a variable used by our scripts and confuses the menu library files.

The “quick & dirty” solution is to open your “showCal.js” file and perform a “search & replace” replacing “isNav” with “isNav1”. You should find 4 occurrences.

This will make both scripts work until we can fix this permanently and send you an updated version.

Dear Terry,

I believe I have found what was causing the problem on the library side and I have corrected it.

Please download the latest build (254.2 – you should now have 254.1) and let me know if this fixes the problem.

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).

Hi Kostas,

I just need to space out the main menu options on top. What would you suggest to be the best way to do this?

Thanks

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Actually I checked your menu again and I see that it is pretty wide already! It is so wide (although transparent) that it creates a horizontal scrollbar to your site:

menu so wide that horizontal scrollbar appears

I assume that this happens because you set it to “Menubar” (so it takes the width of the page):

menubar settings

My suggestion is that you remove the “Menubar” setting, and instead just give it the size you want using the “minimum width”:

menu minimum width

Also, a final suggestion regarding your Positioning. First, find the following code in your page (where the Positioning Anchor is contained):

<td width=200 valign="middle">

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"><span id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>&nbsp;</span></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

And change it into this:

<td width=200 valign="middle" id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

So that the menu is attached to the <td>. Then go to the AllWebMenus Positioning and do something like this:

menu positioning

Of course you can adjust the offsets accordingly…

Good idea. I’ll see what it does. Also, why is the dropdown menu skewing off to the left? Is there any way to center it under the group choices?

Dear Cary,

Check these three properties for the submenu.

Is there any way that I can make the dropdown menus more responsive on the mouse over? There are times when it takes a few passes over the menu choice before the drop down appears. We can’t afford to have our customers play mouse games to access any menu features.

Thanks

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

I see that your submenus disappear too quickly and sometimes you have to be quick to move the mouse over them.

To fix this you need to put some delay on the “Disappears How” feature, and maybe also bring the submenus closer to the main menu items (they have a couple of pixels empty space between them.

Thanks. What would I change to bring the submenus closer?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Try “appears where” (of which I sent a screenshot two mails ago).

Note: I strongly recommend that you take some time to skim through the different application properties.

This way you will have a general idea of what you can do and where to find it.

Support Case Month: September 2012

Hi,

I have fixed images I would like to display without the vertical and horizontal scroll bars that are 600x480. No matter what I try I cannot get the scroll bars to disappear. What am I missing in the settings?

Thanks,

Mike

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Mike,

If you get scrollbars this is most likely because your images do not fit in the accordion (check paddings etc.).

If you want to force-hide the scrollbars, you should be able to do so by adding “overflow: hidden;” in the Body CSS:

body css overflow hidden

If this does not work, please export and send me your project so that I can have a look at it.
