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


Initial Email From:

Initial Email Subject: Custom Fonts
Support Case Month: January 2013

I'm trying to use a custom font for the navigation menu called "Neutraface Condensed Titling", which is what the logo in the top left of the page is done with. I read the two knowledgebase posts about custom fonts, but do not have the syntax correct to apparently get this font to load. Please check the URL, and see the reference to the font in the css file at:

/css/styles.css

Also, on my local PC they are viewable, but looked a bit bitmapped/jagged. Why does the font not look better? I'm feeling like I need to create images of these, so they look cleaner/clearer, but that should not be the case.

Thanks,
Alexi

Dear Alexi,

In order for your Custom Fonts to work, they must be available online so that they can be downloaded to any browser viewing your site.

This is done with Web-Fonts, such as Google Fonts. You cannot upload a custom font that you have in your PC (e.g. in Photoshop or Corel).

First of all because it is very tricky technically (and requires full access to the server) and secondly because their license would never allow this…

If you are using a Web Font, then make sure that it is properly included in your page (try it with a simple <div> that uses the font). If it works there it will also work in the menu without doing anything else.

Initial Email Subject: my allweb menu quit working today. It works off line out of Dreamweaver
Support Case Month: December 2012

my allweb menu quit working today. It was fine last night. I have not changed or touched the allweb menu in months. It works off line out of Dreamweaver in the 3 browsers, but not on the server. I tested both ways in Firefox, Chrome and IE.

If you could look at my index page and let me know if you see anything.

Feeling very helpless,
Thanks, Sue

Dear Sue,

I checked your site and noticed two things:

First of all that the online library files are from build 894 while your compiled menu file is from build 898.

Secondly and most importantly, it seems that the library files of AllWebMenus have been corrupted and some extra script has been added at the end of each file! We have seen this happening a couple of times in the past and it probably means that your online server is infected by some virus. I recommend that you re-upload the local menu library files (“awmdata” folder) and that you also notify your host about this.

Initial Email Subject: Menu updated but doesn't show 
Support Case Month: December 2012

Help -  updated linking code, checked page position anchor, checked paths, verified files are present.  Menu displays properly in software but doesn't work on test server or production server.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

I see what is wrong now, it does not have to do with positioning but with this one:

populate menu inside the project

You chose the UL/LI population method and no "UL/LI" structure is found within your page, so the menu shows nothing.

Either create a UL/LI structure (see help how) OR change this option to the 1st one (most likely this is what you want to have).

Initial Email Subject: menu shows on desktop but not on server
Support Case Month: December 2012

I just finished creating two separate menus using the same template. The menus are in separate sub-folders in a folder names "Scripts"

The "Ladies" menu (the lowest one) works fine, however the "Navigation" menu cannot be seen.
I have checked and recompiled this menu several times and relinked it a couple of times but nothing.

They both work well on my desktop but not on the server. I have checked to make sure the files are actually on the server.

Any ideas?

Frank

Dear Frank,

Are you sure you uploaded the files properly? I tried viewing the “Webpage_Navigation.js” file online and I get a 404 (missing page) error.

Hi

Thanks for your prompt reply. This may be one for the books.

When I looked up the folder where the menu existed using CPanel all the required files were there including the .js file.

I moved the menu around on my template page and it did not work at any of the locations.

I deleted the entire folder on the site and uploaded it again.
Now it works. Apparently the file was corrupted during the original upload

Something to remember.

Thanks again

Frank

Initial Email Subject: No Data in Compiled menu
Support Case Month: June 2012

I have now modified the menu to work in 2 rows as it didn't fit page. After compiling modified menu when I upload to server the awmdata/menu folder contains no data at all! Can you please help?

Thank You
Pete

Hello,

First of all, I tried to view your page but I get a “page not found” error:

page not found error

Regarding your support question, I am not sure what the problem is. When you compile the menu, does the local “awmdata” folder have the compiled files in it?

If the local files exist, then your problem is in the uploading.

Gooday Kostas.
Not sure why the page is not coming up as it seems to work for me!
There is data in the local and uploaded awmdata folder for but nothing in the local or uploaded menu folder (sub folder in awmdata.)
I have attached the awmdata folder.
Thanks for your help.
Pete

Dear Pete,

Are you sure you used the link you sent to me? Is it possible that you have to be logged in to some online control panel in order for this to work?

The “menu” folder within “awmdata” folder, will only hold images if there are any images used by your menu. If your menu does not use images, then it is natural for this folder to be empty.

PS: the email you sent me just now, has “petresymonds” instead of “petesymonds” so it bounced back. I am now sending it again using your original email address.

Hi Kostas.

Thank you for spotting my mistake re my email addy!

I'm quite sure the link I sent is correct. To make sure I have copied and pasted the URL below, this was copied from a page that is up and running in Internet Explorer 8, it also works ok in Firefox (which is my default browser.)

http://www.pete-symonds.me.uk/buildingsurveyors/index.htm

I realize the menu is much too large for the page so changed it to 2 rows in your software which was then saved in Allwebmenus. I used Position Menu in Dreamweaver saved the page also in Dreamweaver and uploaded all of the required files to my host server. If I preview from Dreamweaver everything shows ok.

I have used your software many times and never had this problem before!

Pete

Dear Pete,

The original link was wrong indeed... you had sent:

http://www.pete-symonds.me.uk/buildingsurveying.biz/index.htm

while the correct URL you sent now is:

http://www.pete-symonds.me.uk/buildingsurveyors/index.htm

Also, your email is still coming wrong (with the extra "r") and I have to change it by hand when I reply. I do not know if you can correct this somehow in your email application.

Anyway, now I was able to see the page and the menu, which is indeed too wide. What is the problem though? Did you upload the new files? If so, did you upload them in the correct location?

From what I see your library files are up to date, so you only need to upload the "menu.js" really. And you should upload it to:

http://www.pete-symonds.me.uk/buildingsurveyors/menu.js

Hi Kostas.

How stupid feel now! If you hadn't have pointed it out I may not of noticed! The URL is indeed xxxx/buildingsurveyING. I first started on this site in January, the client has only just decided to go ahead with the website. I must have named the local directory wrong in the first place!

Thank you for your invaluable help, you've saved my sanity!!

Pete
