Initial Email Subject: Server side api vs dreamweaver recordset
Support Case Month: March 2013

I just seem to be able to get the Server Side api running with Dreamweaver cs5.5. I get the menu on screen, but under "Onderafdelingen" I am trying to get results from a recordset and I can't get/understand how to do this. I read the help files but didn't understand half of it. Also examples didn't really work for me. Please, help.

Hello,

I am afraid that the original API was not designed for responsive versions.

It is still possible to use it for responsive menus, but in this case you will have to add your extra items to the structure of each one of the responsive versions.

For example, if you want to add a submenu to “Onderafdelingen” and then add an extra item, first you need to know the ID of “Onderafdelingen”:

view or edit menu structure variables

For example:

menu structure

In your case, the “Onderafdelingen” item has id=”awm_I18”. The responsive version IDs will have an extra “rmX” like so:

awm_I18
awm_rm2I18
awm_rm3I18
awm_rm4I18

So then the code you need is:

subMenu = awm_I18.newGroup('style=sub_group_style')
subItem = subMenu.newItem('style=sub_item_style;text0=My New Item;url=myUrl.html');
subMenu = awm_rm2I18.newGroup('style=sub_group_style')
subItem = subMenu.newItem('style=sub_item_style;text0=My New Item;url=myUrl.html');
subMenu = awm_rm3I18.newGroup('style=sub_group_style')
subItem = subMenu.newItem('style=sub_item_style;text0=My New Item;url=myUrl.html');
subMenu = awm_rm4I18.newGroup('style=sub_group_style')
subItem = subMenu.newItem('style=sub_item_style;text0=My New Item;url=myUrl.html');

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.

Does the Server Side API work with OpenCart?

I noticed the Unlimited Server Side API being offered as a gift for free with purchase of All Web Menus Pro. I already have licenses to All Web Menus Pro, Button Maker and Photo Frame programs. It seems silly to me to buy just the API when I could purchase AWM and get it for free, but I already have it.

Thanks!
Judy

Dear Judy,

The Server Side API is a JavaScript API that allows you to generate menus with JavaScript Code. It requires that you do some manual coding and usually the user writes PHP or ASP code that “produces” the required JavaScript code for the menu.

I just want it to be clear that it is not something that will automatically connect to your database and create the menu for you.

You can see an example with step-by-step instructions here:

Thank you so much for the information. I am familiar with the term API, so I understand I'm taking on some coding and possibly some head banging :)

I want to incorporate the menu being used on a website with its corresponding WordPress Blog and OpenCart Storefront, so I believe this is the tool I will need.

Cheers and thanks again!

Judy

Dear Kostas

I have to migrate a website (http://www.mange-mon-amour.be/ ) to another server

I have transferred all files and databases but the server side menu do not work, can you tell me where is the problem

Best regards

Dear Roland,

I see a lot of server-side errors when I “view source” in your pages. I guess you need to revisit your server-side code that builds the menu.

Things to check would be missing variables and changes in the database names etc.

Dear Roland,

I checked your site again and I see that you have now fixed the server-side code. (no more errors)

Let me know if you need anything else.

Initial Email Subject: Frames
Support Case Month: August 2012

Throughout the different times he have designed and redesigned our site we have been told many things.  And of course many things have changed through the years. 

One that I am just not sure on is the use of Frames.  I recall being told that it wasn't a good practice to use a frameset but it really does seem like the best route to go.  Let me explain...

Our old site which is www.home2000.com used 3 frames.  Top, left and main.  The topFrame held the upper navigation, logo and search feature so it was always a consistent and did not have to be refreshed.  Then when someone would select one of the links in the upper navigation, it would load a menu in the left frame and content in the mainFrame.  This really worked well for us.

When he decided to redesign our site, we wanted to move away from Java mainly.  We also wanted to rewrite our pages to load faster etc.  We had someone who converted our pages into HTML.  When he did this, he wrote the upper navigation into the page as well. Because of this, when we load a new page, the whole thing reloads because its all part of the same page.  If you look at our old site, and compare it to our new site (www.home2000.com/h2) you will see what I mean.

What is our best way to do this?  I was thinking that if I just use a very basic frame system that holds the logo, navigation and search feature; a lower frame could hold the display pages and that way the upper frame always stays consistent because it wont change anyways...it is exactly the same on each page.  I read a little on iFrames, but I really don't think that is the way to go for this situation.  Please let me know what you think would be the best route and if there are problems with using frames this way.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bob,

I believe that there is no need to keep using frames in your site. The top frame is really light and considering that any images are cached and not really reloaded every time, it is probably lighter to have a single page instead of three (even if one never reloads).

Moreover, if you use a single page you will be able to use other menu features, such as the “auto-highlight” which shows the current item highlighted.

If you want to keep the maintenance easy, you could put the “top section” HTML into a separate include file (you need some server-side language for this, such as PHP or ASP), so changing the logo in a single file will update all your pages.

Kostas
