Initial Email Subject: Convert from 4 to 5.3- wide screen menu not working
Support Case Month: February 2013

Hello,

I have a 2007 version of AllWebMenus I bought. I now need to convert to 5.3 because the floating menu do not line up on a wide screen browser.

On our site if you click on Our Clery on our site the menu is to the FAR Left side.  This has happen as screens have gotten wider and browsers have changed.

I have bought a slide down menu hoping that would fix it but is has not.

I had hope to JUST CONVERT the old to the new without losing styles.

Can I do this? What do you suggest?

Jeff

Dear Jeff,

There should not be a problem with that. Normally you should be able to directly open your project in the v5, compile and upload it, and it should work right out of the box.

In any case, if you run into any problems just let me know and we fix it.

Menu works using all browsers except Internet Explorer. I have tried using different styles of vertical menus with no success. I am lost.

Separate issue. If I use the Floating aspect, cell phone user can't keep it in their windows it is always just below where they can use it

Hello,

Regarding the IE issue, the problem is most likely that your Menu Linking Code is not right after the <body> tag as it should be, but instead it is within other page tags.

If you cannot move the Linking Code to directly under the <body> tag, then please check the following option in the AllWebMenus Project Properties to resolve the problem:

menu linking code within tags

Regarding the floating issue, when you choose for the menu to be floating it will always stay to the same position relative to the browser window.

You placed your menu far from the top and the screen height of most phones is too small, hence the menu is not visible to start with, and with the “floating” feature selected it will always stay there. The solution is to position the menu closer to the top, or even better to not use the floating feature. Consider that your menu may be taller than the screen height of some phones, so if it cannot be scrolled it will never be fully visible to the user.

Hello,
I would like to know if it's possible to create more styles?
Currently there are only 6 options (Main,Sub,& Sub+)

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

The default styles are only 3 for groups and 3 for items. These correspond to the “main menu”, the “first level submenu” and “all the deeper levels”.

Having said this, it is possible to customize every single item or group:

customize menu values

You can then copy-paste the style changes to all the other items you want, by right-clicking on the edited item:

Initial Email From: Tom

Hi, thank you for the quick reply.

Sorry for my badly written email. I'm building a Drupal 7 Website and I want a menu with a mouse over option.  I noticed on your web demo that you can have different displays colors etc per menu and I'm looking to do this for the website.
This is a link to want I have in mind www.next.co.uk.
Will the web menu have all the features available with the Drupal 7 add on as it would if I was using Dreamweaver?

Thanks again,
Tom

Hello Tom,

If the menu items are populated using the "Static" option, then you can have different colors per menu items, etc. You can actually do anything you like because you will add the items MANUALLY inside the AllWebMenus application.

But if you want the items to be retrieved dynamically by a database, then you need to use the "Dynamic" option which means that the items cannot have different styles (apart from the 3 groups of Main Menu, Submenu and Submenu+).

The URL that you sent me shows a "MEGA MENU". The items within each submenu are not "normal" menu items but each submenu is just ONE item that uses HTML inside it.

See this menu in our Example:

mega drop-down menu

Since AllWebMenus v5.1.764, your menus can use 3 different styles for their groups and 3 different styles for their items:

Main Group Style
(initially assigned to the Main Menu Group, i.e. 1st level group)

Main Items Style
(initially assigned to the items of the Main Menu Group, i.e. 1st level items)

Sub Groups Style
(initially assigned to the 1st submenus stemming from the Main Menu items, i.e. 2nd level groups)

Sub Items Style
(initially assigned to the 1st submenu items contained in the above submenus, i.e. 2nd level items)

Sub Groups Style+
(initially assigned to the rest of submenus stemming from the above items, i.e. 3rd level groups and beyond)

Sub Items Style+
(initially assigned to the rest of submenu items contained in the above submenus, i.e. 3rd level items and beyond)

This is how a menu would look if the <Background Color> and <Border> on every item or group had the above colors that demonstrate the initial style assignments:

Available Styles menu

Note: The above assignments are the initial ones. If you wish, you can later change the assignments as wish.


Why is the 3rd style (i.e. "Style+") useful?



1. You can use themes that have different appearance on 3rd-level submenus and beyond:

Themes that use this technique: Juice, Fading Purple, FlatSky, Orange Bubbles (free, contained in your AllWebMenus by default)
You may also find extra themes using this technique from Theme Pack 36 and above at: http://www.likno.com/awmthemes.php

For example, at theme "Olive Plastic" (Theme Pack 36), its 3rd-level items (and beyond) use less padding than its 2nd-level items:

At the SlideTreeXP sliding menu theme (Theme Pack 38, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required), the 3rd-level items do not use an icon, while the 2nd-level items do:

Such arrangements would not have been possible if all submenus had the same style.

2. You can apply very interesting behaviors to sliding menus (available through the extra "Sliding Menu Add-in"), that combine both "sliding" and "non-sliding" cascading submenus!

For example, the SlideSummer sliding menu theme below (Theme Pack 37, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required)) uses a sliding submenu for all its Main Menu items, while the rest of its submenus are the standard non-sliding ones. Such "sliding/non-sliding" menu combinations are very suitable in many website layouts and would not have been possible if all submenus had the same style.



3. The 3rd-level submenus can differ from the 2nd-level submenus by only a small but very important detail, that allows for a different design if the parent group is horizontal or vertical.

At the following examples the 2nd-level submenu does not have a "Header" (its <Has Header> property is set to "No"), while the 3rd-level submenu (and beyond) needs to have a "Header" so that the design closes properly at top:

At the following sliding menu themes (Theme Pack 38, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required) the 2nd-level submenus are different than the 3rd-level submenus, either in colors, images or indentation:
