Initial Email Subject: Question on AWM use on specific WordPress pages
Support Case Month: January 2014

Good morning!

I am responsible for a website (URL REMOVED) that was created for us using WordPress. The site is for the general public to find information on us.

Now we are wanting to add something new—a private section of pages that only our missionaries would access. I know I can hide the pages from the WordPress menu; I’ve done it for a couple pages already. But, is it possible to use an AWM menu on *just* the group of hidden pages? In other words, the general public would only see the WordPress menu for the public pages. Our missionaries, when they would come to the hidden pages, would see a separate AWM menu for just the hidden pages.

Is that possible?

I also support several other websites (see below in my signature) that I’ve created in NOF. I use the NOF “hide from navigation” option to hide the main page, and that allows all the sub-pages below it to also be hidden, but have a menu. I don’t care for the clunkiness of the NOF menus; would AWM allow me to do what I want?

Thanks for your help!
Neil

Hello User,

Hmm…one idea would be to have 2 menus on your WP site so you can select 2 menus in AWM WP plugin, one that will be for the public areas and one for the admins.

You can set the menu positioning method to "Theme menu location" for example on your AWM WP plugin settings and then you can edit the file that should contain your menu, most probably the header.php file of your template. You could check if a user is logged in then serve the menu that is for logged in users if not then serve the public menu.

You may want to see more info on how to check If a user a logged in:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_user_logged_in

Please, let me know how that could work for you.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: Sharing Javascript & Image Libraries
Support Case Month: January 2014

If you have several menus with the same template, it seems obvious you can share the images library, but can you share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2).  For each template project structure, let’s say blue and red, should blue have its own Javascript library and red has its own?  If blue has several menus based on the template, can those several menus share the JavaScript library (E.g. awmlib0/1/2)?  Thank you.

Hello,

Yes, you can have many menus that can share the same library files (awmlib0.js, awmlib1.js and awmlib2.js). You can set your menus to point to the same awmdata folder.

This is the optimal as you don't need to have the same files multiple times on your server.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: Help with AWM (CSS)
Support Case Month: June 2013

I’m trying to get the CSS menu to populate to the page but I’m at a COMPLETE loss of understanding of how to do so with the CSS based menu. The testing site is at {URL REMOVED} (only working on the home/index page as I try to understand this)

The index.html page is based on a Dreamweaver template. (I use DW CS5.5)

I’m having several issues…

The menu was compiled in AWM 5.3 Build 910

Possibly if this issue is resolved the other issues regarding positions etc will be taken care of as I believe AWM is built to do all the positioning and code insertion automatically.

Thx for the help,
Michael

Hello Michael,

We are here to help, I saw your page and realized that you did not add the "UL/LI" elements that represent your menu.

See the image below, where to find these:

UL LI CSS menu population code

This is not related to the Dreamweaver Extension, do not use it at all. Just have the menu-linking code there (which I see that you did add) and the UL/LI section. Also check if everything id OK with the "Positioning" of the menu here:

menu positioning

Thank you!

Thank you.

OK, I did what I think you’re telling me (went to “Project Properties > Populate menu inside your page… > <ul><li> structure and copied the code there and then entered the code on the template relative to the element <div id="menu-anchor"> (from the “Menu Positioning”)

Take a look at the home now. Clearly this isn’t what I’m trying to do. I would like the menu to populate horizontally (like at {URL REMOVED}) and I want the menu to behave in the manner the javascript menu does, i.e. with the hover over, etc. characteristics.

I am very confused with this and am not following what I should be doing. Yes, I know it would probably be easier (maybe not?) with the js menu but the js menu will not work (as I understand it) when the site is viewed on an iPad.

Suggestions?

Michael

Hello Michael,

I checked your files and I see that the problem is with the width and height of the menu items.

In CSS menu, the property works "as exactly" the width and height you specify and not as "at least". I noticed that you have set it as in the image below:

menu items width and height

Please correct these sizes in all your menu items (main, sub items and sub items+) to width/height values that perfects fit your menu.

Note that in CSS menu the width and height values are the same for all items. In this case, if you need a specific width/height for some menu items you need to do that with inline style.

In your Dreamweaver template go to the menu structure and set these properties in <li> and <a> tags. See image below:

width and height in menu structure

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Support Case Month: July 2013

Hi everybody

My name is Peter, also known as Dr. Z. I'm in the process of updating the visual appearance of our website.

A website was developed in Dreamweaver with Firefox in 1998 through 2000.
I've not been able to use the AllWebMenus with the Dreamweaver templates which our website is based on.
As you can see, currently I'm positioning the menu below the main image on the page.

That works quite nicely as you can see here on the test server {URL REMOVED}
the currently functioning website is {URL REMOVED}

The only problem is: different folders have different main images with different image names.

Is there a solution to this?
In other words can I position the menu on different pages relative to different images?

If the answer is yes, please tell me how to do this.
I've tried to position the menu relative to a page element in the Dreamweaver template.

Every time I do that, most of the template somehow disappears.

This may have to do with the fact that there  are no body tags  in the template.
Please respond to me soon... I hope this is solvable.

Hello Peter,

As I see in your new page the whole page is based in this table:

<table width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" bordercolor="#000000" 
border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" align="center">

My recommendation would be to position your menu based to this, which I guess is the same in all of your pages. Give this table an ID and set the proper menu positioning in AllWebMenus.

For example:  In menu positioning select the default ID and then set the offsets of your desire to fit your design and then your code should have this ID

<table id="awmAnchor-menu" width="800" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" 
bordercolor="#000000" border="0" bgcolor="#FFFFFF"  align="center">

menu positioning

Or you could do that with another element that will be in all of your pages.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Kind Regards, 
Aris

Hi Aggelos,

Thanks for your help.

So basically I followed your advice and inserted a table with the menu ID in the Dreamweaver template.
It works well.

Thanks very much.

My best,
Peter

I was wondering if your drop down menus work with a software call sitepoint or with a xhtml editor such as cspad.
can you get back to me asap?

Hello Shane,

First, thank you for your interest in our products.

In order for the AllWebMenus menu to be inserted in any hosted website, the user should be able to do the following in the hosting environment:

The AllWebMenus menu can be inserted in any hosted website, as long as the user is able to do the following in the hosting environment:

1. Upload javascript files online at the hosted website, either in a subfolder called "awmdata" OR in the ROOT if subfolders are not possible OR in any special subfolder dedicated for javascripts by the host (we need to know the arrangement so that we give proper instructions to the user).

2. Similarly, upload image files online at the hosted website, either in a subfolder called "awmdata/menu" OR in the ROOT if subfolders are not possible OR in any special subfolder dedicated for images by the host (we need to know the arrangement so that we give proper instructions to the user).

3. Add some lines of javascript code inside each page (or the template) that will be online (the hosted pages should permit this with some method).

Most such services do allow these simple actions.

Aris
