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

Initial Email Subject:  AllWebMenu, Hide menu item or group from javascript
Support Case Month: July 2013

I assume I am able to hide a menu item or menu group via external javascript function so I can display just the items/groups based on the web page.  Can you send me an example of how to do that?
Thank you.
Mike

Hello Mike,

First, thank you for your interest in our Likno products.

I believe that the Server-Side Menus API is what you are looking for:

Thank you.
I don't have a need at the moment to build the menu dynamically.  I want to build a complete static menu but then hide parts of it depending on the page the user is on.  My hope is that there is a javascript call to hide an item or group by ID?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Mike,

Another way to achieve what you want is to use the "UL/LI" population method (see below). In that case, you can hide/show any UL/LI items (menu submenus and items in other words) you wish. I believe this is the way to go:

UL LI menu structure code

Initial Email Subject: WordPress menu links on page
Support Case Month: July 2012

When I started learning how to use the menus in WordPress I had the menu type as Dynamic and the links showed up in the page source. Now I have the menu type as Static and the links do not show up in the page source.
Is there any way to use the Static menu setting and display the links in the page source?
Thank you,
Sheldon

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Sheldon,

“Static” means that you have defined the structure in AllWebMenus. Did you do this? When you changed the menu from “Dynamic” to “Static”, did you re-import the menu? if not, then you should do this now.

Hi Kostas,

I did re-import the menu. Are the links supposed to show in the source of the page?

Thank you,

Sheldon

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

No. If you use “Static” then the links are only visible within the “menu.js” file.

You can make the links show in the source if you turn the project to ULLI or CSS.

December 29th, 2012AWM: Can I have a static menu?

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


Initial Email From:
Thomas
Initial Email Subject: static menu possible ?
Support Case Month: May 2012

Hello,

I have a website and another company developed for us a secure booking platform for our holidays houses. This page is hosted on their server so they tried to put the menu's on their template page but the menus don't work... They say that they have to make big changes to the JS file but it's not working.... They ask me to send them a static menu ? (my menus are visible at http://www.durbuyadventure.be/en/sport-activities-durbuy-adventure-park.php) ... is this possible ?

Thank you,
Thomas

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Thomas,

I went to both of your pages, and I do see the same menu (or very similar anyway):

menu preview

submenu preview

I did notice however that the menu in “durbuyadventure” is compiled with a recent AllWebMenus version, while the other one is compiled with a pretty old version known to have issues with Safari 5.

I suggest that you compile the menus at “secure.cubilis” with the current AllWebMenus version, as this will probably fix any issues it currently has.

October 26th, 2012AWM: Joomla menu issues

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


Initial Email From:
Tracey, Mike
Initial Email Subject: Joomla
Support Case Month: October 2012

Hi I was wondering if there is a way to create just one menu for joomla, rather that create a menu for each tab. We have been having some server issues (that are getting fixed) and noticed the performance of sites with your joomla menus that are a different tabs are the slowest.

So just wondering if it is possible now to create just one menu for all my tabs as it was not when I first purchased your software.

This site is a joomla site and it is using one static menu that I update using your software.

{URL REMOVED}

And this site has multiple menus so the client can update their menus through joomla

{URL REMOVED}

Tracey

Hello,

I am afraid I do not fully understand what the problem is. What do you mean by "different tabs"?

I checked your page and I do not see anything resembling tabs there...It is also not very clear when you say "is it possible now to create just one menu for all my tabs...". I even checked our past correspondence but I did not find anything about tabs.

Can you please clarify your question further?

Hey Guys, thanks, I could force the hand but auto should have worked.

There was also an issue with the Positioning Relative To An Element Or Image which seam to be corrected, however this really was not a big deal just move the image where you want it with css.

I have run into another issue with the mixed mode(I have looked for documentation on your web site) The problem is when it is compiling in mixed mode it is not attaching the dynamic menu to the correct header. I have attached a screenshot to show the desired structure of the menu so the joomla menu item can be added dynamically by the administrator.

If you go to

{URL REMOVED} you will see Sub Menu 1 and Sub Menu 2

But all the joomla menu is attached to Sub Menu 2.

The desired structure would be

Sub Menu 1 (Created With AllWebMenus) - With Sub Menu 1 (Joomla Generated)

Sub Menu 2 (Created With AllWebMenus) - With Sub Menu 2 (Joomla Generated)

If you could point me in the direction on how to solve this issue that would be great. Even if I have to create multiple menus that would be a satisfactory solution.

I do have a couple more questions but will send that in another email so not to get thing mixed up

Thanks
Mike

Dear Mike,

I am not sure I fully understand what you want to do.

Do you want some Joomla items to go under one submenu and some to go under another? If so, then you will indeed need separate menus, as all the "Dynamic" items have to be under a single menu item.

It would help me if you can show me what would be the structure of the FULL menu, having noted which items will come from Joomla and which will be static. For example:

(in the following structure the green items are dynamic)

Home
Pages
Page1
Page2
Page3

Hi Kostas, so I have tried adding in multiple menus and what it does is when you upload and install a new menu it deletes the existing one

Is there a way to have multiple menus with out deleting any?

Thanks

Mike

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Mike,

You can have as many menus as you want in a page. The only requirement is that the menus have different compile names in the Project Properties:

Hi,

Please see the following email sent May 16/2011. Is there now anyway to make all the single menus within the navigation bar as one complete navigation menu with the flyouts and have it updatable through Joomla?

Thank you

Mike

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Mike,

The only way to do this is if your menu is fully populated in Joomla. You cannot do this if you want extra items defined in AllWebMenus or if you want each main menu item to have customized styling (e.g. with different background).

If on the other hand you create a Joomla menu with the full structure your menu should have, and if your menu only uses the Style Editor values for its appearance (with no customizations under the Menu Editor) then this will work fine and you can have everything in a single menu.
