Initial Email Subject: Hi I have a strange question. Bet you have not heard this one before.
Support Case Month: February 2014

Is it possible to have a page that uses your menu that does not link to anything.

I have split my site into a default.html landing view (which is lite)

I then have another home page called index.html which is the main site.

I use your side menu and would like to have this menu showing on default.html (showing all the pages that it links to) but without the links working.

I.e. to tantalize the viewer but not allow them to go further into the web until they become a member / contact me.

I.e. all other pages within my site with the menu will need to work normally.

A strange request.  I apologize.

I hope you can accommodate me.

Mark

Hello Mark,

Hmmm….i can think of 2 solutions.

1st solution: You can create a copy of the existing menu and then remove the links. This way you will have 2 menus which look identical but the one does not have links. The one with no links you can link it to your default.html page and leave the other one as it was.

2nd solution: You can have your menu as CSS menu, which means you need to add the UL/LI structure in your pages. You can have the regular UL/LI structure to all the pages instead of the default.html in which you can remove the <a> tags from the menu items. So, the links will not work. In this solution you will only have one menu linked to all pages, but you have to add the UL/LI structure to all your pages. This will be easy if you have an include file but if you not it will take you more time.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Thank you!
Let me try the first solution.
I think it will work best.
When you say copy exactly how do I do that?
I know there is the code you include in your page. I also know about the folder that contains menu code and images for menu parts etc. and a menu.js (I think) within the html pages.
A copy would, I assume, duplicate the folder to another name, call it differently from the page and refer to a change from menu.js to menu1.js (I think) which would not have links.
I have got quite lazy and simply add new pages into the menu.js file as new lines with the new page and link.
I.e. I don't use your console any more as template is set up and runs.
Apologies if I have totally missed your point on what to do. Also for the bother of this long email.
Regards
Mark

Hello Mark,

I would suggest to copy your .awm menu project to another place with another name for example menuDefault.awm

Then, open it in AllWebMenus and remove the links from the items you don't want them to have links.

Go to the Project Properties and change the compile name (as it cannot be the same as the existent menu) so for example make it menuDefault.js

Then, compile that project and link it to your default.html page.

It should show as expected.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Initial Email Subject: CSS menu 
Support Case Month: January 2014

Hello,

The Javascript menu I created is not found by search engines, even though I used the populate using UL/LI items option. MY SEO advisor tells me that the display: none setting causes this. Search engines do not like display: none settings anyway.

So I tried converting to a CSS version. However now my sliding vertical submenu does not work anymore. Is that not supported in the CSS version?

Regards,
Roger

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Roger,

I am afraid the sliding option does not work on a CSS based menu.

Considering the SEO you may want to use the JavaScript based menu and populate your items through UL/LI structure.

Also, you can use a sitemap so that search engine can crawl your menu items and links. You can do so by clicking on Tools -> Create Sitemaps -> (Create Generic Sitemap / Create Google Sitemap / Create ROR Sitemap).

create sitemap options

Let me know if you need further help on this.

Also, if you need further assistance please export your menu project and send it to me so I can have a better look on the issue.

Thank you!

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:

Also click the "Example" link:

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

Jim
Initial Email Subject: Passing PHP variable to URL
Support Case Month: July 2013

I need to pass a variable, via PHP, to each URL in my menu as follows:

?BG=<?php echo $bg; ?>

so that the url would look like loading.php?BG=<?php echo $bg; ?>  ... and it would resolve with the appropriate variable.

Couldn't find answer in knowledge base.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Jim,

In order to achieve that, you should populate your menu through UL/LI structure.

Choose the following option in your AllWebMenus project:

populate menu using UL  LI structure

Then click on the "Settings" in order to make the settings that perfectly work for you.

menu structure settings

A UL/LI structure in your page could look like the one below:

<ul id="awmULLI-menu" style="display:none;">
  <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg1; ?>">Main Item 1</a></li>
  <li>Main Item 2
    <ul>
      <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg2; ?>">Sub Item 1</a></li>
      <li>Sub Item 2
        <ul>
          <li>Sub Item 4</li>
          <li>Sub Item 5</li>
          <li><a href="test.php?BG=<?php echo $bg3; ?>">Sub Item 6</a></li>
        </ul>
      </li>
      <li>Sub Item 3</li>
    </ul>
  </li>
  <li>Main Item 3</li>
</ul>

Let me know if you need any more information.

Hi

I was on vacation last week, so this is the first chance I've had to try this. I haven't been able to get anything to show online - is that because I'm using a trial version? Are there any instructions?

Rich

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Rich,

Hope you had fun in your vacation.

As long as you use Likno Web Scroller Builder in a trial mode you will not be able to publish the sliders for any other domain except the localhost.

Create any slider you would like starting from the example it best fits your needs. When you finish the slider, press the "Publish" button (see image below).

publish scroller project

The following form will appear, here you can choose the publish folder, the publish sample page (you can leave it as it is) and the name of your compiled project.

Then, you can choose if it is going to be for a generic website or a WordPress website.

Then, you choose localhost as the domain and click on publish.

jquery scroller project properties

A sample page should open that contains the slider you have created.

Let me know if you need any more clarification.

Thank you!
