Hi,
I just purchased Scroller and have figured out how to make my project. But when I try to Publish, it gives me the wrong paths, so I have to manually fix things in Dreamweaver.
I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but can't figure out what.
The attached screenshots should illustrate my problem. I made a folder called "scroller" into which everything associated with the project goes, but the source for the javascript file doesn't reflect that. And I've specified the correct path in the Project Properties.
Also, where should I go for the likno_scroller_project_content? The program supplies the sample page content paths, but not the actual content paths.
I've noticed a few bugs, as well.
The help file mentions clicking on the "Compile" button, which doesn't exist. I assume it should read "Publish".
When I click "Import Images" to add more photos to my project, all of the links (URLs) I've set up for the existing photos are deleted. Very frustrating.
I found a typo on the "Sample Code" tab: It's at the bottom of the page--the tick box "sroller separators".
Thanks for your help.

Joe

Hello Joe,

First, thank you for your purchase and your feedback.

When you publish your Image based Scroller a folder "lwsc_sample_images" will be created in the Publish folder you have specified and it contains the images for your scroller items.

scroller code

So, uploading the compiled files to your server should work as expected.

file structure

For example you have the www.yourdomain.com, in order to see the index_lwsc_sample.html you need to upload the index_lwsc_sample, likno-scripts (folder) and lwsc_sample_images (folder) to your root folder so after that, opening the www.yourdomain.com/index_lwsc_sample.html should show the scroller as expected.

As for the links that are removed after your click on "Import images" to add more images, I will forward it to the development team.

Please, let me know if you need further help.

Thank you.

Just so I understand correctly (I'm slow): The folders (likno-scripts and lwsc_sample_images) need to be uploaded to our server in order to view the page locally?
Thanks for your help.

Hello Joe,

I thought you wanted to see that slider live on your server.

When, you Publish a scroller project, you see on the settings the Publish Sample Page and it is checked "Open after publishing".

publish sample jquery slider page

So, when you have published the scroller project, this page automatically opens in your default browser and you should see the scroller live.

Didn't this happen to you?

Could you 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.

Hi --
I was trying to put the code in my page and viewing it locally. I don't want to go live with the scroller until I know it's working--and until the site is done. I have everything in a temporary folder called www.mysite.com/2012 while I design the site. Once I'm ready to go live, it will all be moved to www.mysite.com, which necessitates having relatives links for everything.
I've attached the file for you to look at, if you need to. I've also attached the page into which I have inserted the code. I wonder if that is perhaps where I went wrong.
Thank you.
Joe

Hello Joe,

With the code you have in the page you sent me when you have the page live, you should have in your public_html folder (root folder on your server) the scroller folder which contains the likno-scripts folder (that contains the JavaScript files needed for your scroller). So, the path would be {root folder}/scroller/likno-scripts

Then, you should have your images in the path {root folder}/scroller/photos/{all your scroller photos here}

Hi,

Two other questions:

To show the active button on the website, which code is it to activate the “mouse click” parameter, which is defined in AllWebMenus?

Is it possible to activate the Menu Floats on Scroll. I ’ve send you the certain zip-file and the url: {URL REMOVED}

Regards,
Sabine

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Sabine,

I guess your first question is for the topmenu. You want to show the active menu item depending on the page  which is currently selected, doesn’t you?

You need to click on Global Properties -> Show Item or Group on Appear and make the settings that best fit your needs.

show item or group on appear

As for your second question, you can make the menu floating. Click on Global Properties -> Menu Floats on Scroll and make the following Settings.

floating menu settings

After you make the changes to your projects, you need to re-compile them and re-upload the produced files to your server.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Hi,

in my AWM is the screen below without the parameter “what if a url uses parameter”. Perhaps this is the reason for no active button?

For the second question:

My screen looks like the one you`ve send to me, but it doesn’t work.

Regards,
Sabine

Hello Sabine,

What is the version of AllWebMenus you have installed? You might have an older version and by that time the feature was not available.

In order to have the menu float on scroll you need to change the Menu Genre. Select in Menu Genre the "JavaScript menu (feature-rich)" option, as shown in the screenshot below.

JavaScript menu (feature-rich)

Then, you need to have the following settings:

Re-compile you project and re-upload the produced files to your server.

Thank you!

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.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: February 2013

How could I keep a floating image indicator unhidden on a selected menu item? For example, I would like the indicator of the home page to be shown while the user is in the home page.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

This is not possible exactly the way you describe it. What you can do instead, is to use the floating image on the “click state”, and set your menu to automatically highlight the “current item”.

This will automatically set the “current item” to the “click state”, based on the URL shown in the address bar:

floating image on click state

highlight menu item bases on URL

Initial Email Subject: allwebmenus few answers needed
Support Case Month: February 2013

Hi guys
I would like some issues in allwebmenus optimized. Or appreciate your instructions.
Problem is quite long upload time.
1.- I am using two menus on every page. horizontal and vertical. (check kamenaric.si)
     They are mostly using same gif, and awmlib2.js, but files are saved in different subfolders.
     (awmdata-x +awmdata-y) That doubles download requests and time.
solution needed:
How could AWM be configured so, that identical files from different menus will be called from same URL?
How could I know, if there are other files identical (I know what buttons I use, but what is with awmlib-s?
2.- Could I create compressed .js in AWM? Or does AWM include this option?
3.- Could I move code to the end of <body> to load at the end of html?
4.- Any other method to improve speed of menu loading? Reducing no. of .js files maybe?

Kind Regards,
Tomaz

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Tomaz,

1) Ideally you should not change the AllWebMenus folder settings. You should only change the compiled menu name (which also automatically changes the image submenu) and leave the folder settings to “default”. This way all the menus will use the same library files and load faster. The “awmlib-x” files are different depending on the viewer browser and only one of them is loaded for each user.

2) I am afraid that this option is not included, but if your browser supports zipped resources then you can do this by manually zipping the compiled files. We do have other users that are doing this successfully, but I am afraid I do not know the details of this implementation.

3) You can do this if you want but you have to make sure that the Linking Code is a direct child of the <body> and not within another page element (e.g. <div>). Alternatively, you can select the following option, which will force the menu to load after the page “onload” event is triggered:

menu linking code within tags

4) The JS files that are loaded are only two, the “menu.js” and the “awmlib-x” that corresponds to the current browser, so this cannot be improved further. One thing that you should also keep in mind is that using heavy images in the menu will slow the loading process. If speed is a crucial factor, it is best to use a text-only theme that uses background colors and borders instead of images.
