Initial Email Subject: How to get my menu to move
Support Case Month: April 2014

I'm trying to figure out how to get the AllWebMenus menu to move based on the amount of text appearing in a daily message area at the top of the page.
I have a test sited up to figure this out.{URL REMOVED}

So I have a csRandomText code running at the top of the page.  I have loaded it with dummy data.
When you refresh the page, a different amount of letters/line appears, from over 1000 to zero,  keep refreshing the scr4een and you'll see the menu never moves.
The menu is set to Global Position Auto, Window, Top Side Center, 0,260

Two questions:

1 - How do I get it to move up or down, based on the amount of random test in my daily message?

2 - If I wanted the menu to appear at the very top with nothing above it, would I just use the settings  Global, Positioning: Auto, Window, Top Side Center, 0,0 ?
Do you have a screen cast to teach me this?

Does Likno have an AWM instructional course on Lynda.com yet?  That would help.

I can send you the .awm file if you want to see it.

Thanks for the help.

Hello Doc,

I would recommend you to position your menu relative to your image in your header which is called img1.gif
In order to achieve that please go to Menu Positioning -> select Relative to an Image -> type img1.gif and make the settings that best fit your needs.

This way your menu will be positioned relative to your header image.

Got It!  Yeah!  Just tested the center,center then adjusted the position of img4.gif on the page.  Nice.
Thanks for the inspiration.
Can you tell me how to control padding on the sides of the words?  How do I pad less or more/
Your CS is the best!

Hello Doc,

Glad to see you found it and thank you for your kind words Smile

You can control the paddings of your menu items in Style Editor -> the items you want -> Padding

Initial Email Subject: 2 modal windows in same project 
Support Case Month: April 2014

Hi guys,

Love your software, awesome!

I have the most strange thing happen to me with 2 modal windows in the same project.

When I simply want to change the width or the height of one of the modal windows, IT CHANGES THE WIDTH AND THE HEIGHT ON THE OTHER ONE! For the life of me I cannot understand why it does this! Please help, images attached.

Many thanks,
Carmen.

Hello Carmen,

Thank you for your kind words.

I believe that you have set the width/height to one modal window thus the other modal window gets the same values.

You need to go to Style Editor -> select Edit style of specific window -> select the modal window that you want to have different width/height values and make the changes you need.

Do not forget to re-compile and re-upload the produced files to your server.

If the above is not your case, please export and send me your project file, so that we can have a better look at the problem.

This is what you should do to export your project into a ZIP file and then email this ZIP to us.

Please, let me know if I can be of further help.

Thank you.

Initial Email Subject: AWM: Menu not showing up (WordPress, Pagelines)
Support Case Month: January 2013

I followed all the instructions on

http://www.likno.com/addins/wordpress-menu.html

and the plugin Settings page, including adding the PHP right beneath my Header.PHP file's <body> tag, but alas, nothing works.

If you look at the source of the page, you can see the javascript runs, but the menu isn't showing up.  Please help!

Hello Robert,

I now see your website. I also see that you do have a menu, is this the AllWebMeuns menu?

Because I do see the menu-linking code there.

No, that is the Pagelines native menu.  I need to keep it in there until I get the other menu working.

Hello,

It seems that your menu was compiled to work only locally!

Please correct this here:

Support Case Month: June 2012

Greetings,
I cant seem to find an answer to my question elsewhere, so, I am designing a website that is based on percentage and not pixels, it is set to be 76% of window size.  I am placing the menu at the top, within a table, centered. However, it will not stay within the table and hangs over the page on either side.
I had to insert some html so that the menu would appear over the flash movie, but this "hangover" is on every page, not just the one with the flash.
I know the menu would have to adjust itself along with the webpage according to browser specs, I also know the menu actually appears "above" the page, and is not part of the page. So, that said. I am at a loss as to what to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

It seems that the menu works fine as long as the browser window is wide enough.

From this I gather that you have correctly set the “menubar” settings. However you also have significant paddings in your menu that do not allow it to become smaller than a given width.

Please check the following properties and change both the padding and margin to 0:

Thank you for your quick reply. I changed the padding settings to 0 as you suggested and when I view the pages "live" within Adobe Dreamweaver everything looks perfect!  The menu is perfectly aligned on all pages.  But once they are uploaded to the server the pages do not appear the same. The menu sits above the table. I tried changing the vertical align to top, bottom, middle, but nothing changes. I have the valign set at default now. I uploaded all the awmdata files as well as the menu.js and the pages themselves, still once it is online, it will not line up. I am at a loss.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

Is your menu still set as a menubar? Can you export and send me your menu project so that I can further research this?

Hello Kostas,
As requested, I have attached the zipped file.
I should tell you that this menu is from one of the pre-made templates. I have made many menus using this program, but never one this fancy. I had changed the base color, but went back to the original. It was never saved as a menubar.
I have another machine with a 15" screen. That one shows the menu sitting just above the table where it should be nested. In 17" everything is fine. My client wants a "flashy" navigation bar and I am not great at doing that from scratch so I thought this would be the answer.
Thanks for your assistance.
Michele

Hello,

I have made some minor changes to your menu to make it look better.

1) added a minimum width to the main menu group

2) removed the “distance between items” that created something like a border

3) added a normal border so that it is also visible before the first and after the last item.

To complete the changes, you can also change the following in your page, from:

To:

style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747">

Thank you so much. I will try this.  Not so sure about the border before and after. It took me forever to figure out how to get rid of that. LOL   I will see if I can figure it out again. :-)  
I'll let you know how I made out.
Thank you again and again.

Hello Kostas,
Oh dear! It is not perfect on my screen here at work. It looked good from home, but not here. It is "hanging" again. Just a tiny bit on each side, but enough to be noticeable. It's fine on the index page, but the others, not so much. All the pages are set at 75% so I don't know why it would be different on all but the index page. I changed the awm code to below, as you so graciously provided and it was great, until I had to add a link.

<td height="32" style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747"><div align="center" id="awmAnchor-menu"></div></td>

Also, last night I tried to update my version of AllWebMenus PRO with latest version. But when I tried to download the program from your primary download location, I kept getting a message saying windows couldn't locate something or other. I was so tired at that point, I didn't attempt to try it again. I will try it again tonight and let you know what the error message is saying.
I bet you just wish I would go away! LOL
Michele

Are you referring to this?

menu in website

I had to zoom my browser in order to notice that the menu is a pixel or two off on the right side!

I guess this is because after you added the new item the menu became just a bit too big. Two things can help resolve this issue:

1) decrease the item padding (if there is any):

2) make sure that the “Uniform Items” property is NOT checked:

Greetings,
Yes, I worked it out. I followed your directions and it works great now. Thank you again.
Now I have to figure out why I cant download the newest version of AllWeb. I didn't try it last night, I was too tired.  Will try it tonight.
Thank you, Kostas.

We are trying to find out if we can restrict a vertical sliding menu to a fixed height, and then either have a scroll bar or have the menu slide up and down within this fixed height.  Is there a way?

Dear Darrell,

Yes, this can be changed in the Sub Group Type settings, under the “secondary options” pane:
