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.

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!

Initial Email Subject: AllWebMenus floating image selected
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.

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

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.

Initial Email From:
Alexi
Initial Email Subject: Custom Fonts
Support Case Month: January 2013

I'm trying to use a custom font for the navigation menu called "Neutraface Condensed Titling", which is what the logo in the top left of the page is done with. I read the two knowledgebase posts about custom fonts, but do not have the syntax correct to apparently get this font to load. Please check the URL, and see the reference to the font in the css file at:

/css/styles.css

Also, on my local PC they are viewable, but looked a bit bitmapped/jagged. Why does the font not look better? I'm feeling like I need to create images of these, so they look cleaner/clearer, but that should not be the case.

Thanks,
Alexi

Dear Alexi,

In order for your Custom Fonts to work, they must be available online so that they can be downloaded to any browser viewing your site.

This is done with Web-Fonts, such as Google Fonts. You cannot upload a custom font that you have in your PC (e.g. in Photoshop or Corel).

First of all because it is very tricky technically (and requires full access to the server) and secondly because their license would never allow this…

If you are using a Web Font, then make sure that it is properly included in your page (try it with a simple <div> that uses the font). If it works there it will also work in the menu without doing anything else.

Pat
Initial Email Subject: Cursor showing up on top image 
Support Case Month: December 2012

Not real sure how to explain this, but how do you keep the cursor (hand) from appearing on the top image. For instance on the URL I included, I want the cursor to appear on the image HOME, TESTIMONIALS, and CONTACT US, but I don't want it to appear on the image ABOUT US and SERVICES, but do want it to appear on the drop down menus below the image ABOUT US and SERVICES.
Right now it appears on ABOUT US and SERVICES, but if you tired clicking on those 2 images, it doesn't do anything.
I just want the drop downs to have the cursor appear.
Of course the cursor would show up on HOME, TESTIMONIALS, and CONTACT US, because it needs to there.
Hope that makes sense. Is this even possible?
Thanks, Pat

Hello Pat,

Don't you have the "Cursor" property set to "Auto"?

menu cursor property

If yes, then this will be done automatically, provided that you have no "Link" value on these 2 items.

Here is the "QUICK HELP" content for the "Cursor" property:

Specifies a different cursor to be shown when the mouse passes over the Item. The "Auto" value displays a "hand" cursor when any of the following properties are not blank (have a value) on their Mouse Click state: <Link>, <Javascript Command>, <Open Modal Window>.
