Support Case Month: December 2012

Hello again,

I have some concerns:

Is it possible to change the colors on any of the themes?

Also, can they be changed into whatever type bar I need, even if they aren't initially set up for that format (such as a horizontal theme bar converted into a vertical bar)?

I also notice that there doesn't seem to be a way to have auto-width for the text unless I just missed it, of course.

I'm loving what I see, and I'm hoping that all of your answers are "Yes!" If this is a case in which the purchased program allows for these options, I'm truly appreciate knowing.
Thank you again for all of the time you've spent in helping me!
Alice

Dear Alice,

Regarding your questions:

1) Yes, you can easily change the colors of all text-based themes through the Style Editor. To change the colors of image-based themes however, you will need to edit the images manually in a graphic editor.

2) Yes, you can change the type of the menu at any time (same for each of its submenus) from horizontal to vertical to sliding. Again you can do all this through the Style Editor under the “Type” property.

3) Yes, as a matter of fact the default menu has automatic width based on its text. There are a couple of things you need to check for this:

i) make sure that the Size property of the menu items is set to Auto

clip_image001

ii) make sure that you do not have “Uniform Items”:

clip_image002

I believe that you need to take some time to get to know AllWebMenus. The truth is that although it is very easy to create the first menu, it can be overwhelming to find all of its abilities, just because of the sheer volume (it can practically do anything you want). The best approach, I believe, is to go to the Style Editor and have a look at what you can change there. Then you can load existing Themes or Examples and check on the Style Editor which options are checked to achieve this result.

Hello,

Are those partial bars at the top and bottom of the menu supposed to be there?  I have tried different widths and they will not go away.

Dear Bruce,

This is the Header and Footer of the menu. If I am not mistaken, this was a horizontal menu and you turned it to vertical (which is also why the items seem to be cut in the left side and have a “separator” on the right side).

To remove these, just say “no” to Footers & Headers!  :)

This looks like a right-side border. Have look here:

If you cannot find the problem, then please export and send me the menu project file so that I can have a look at it:

December 26th, 2012AWM: How to adjust menu width

Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.


Initial Email From:
Becky
Initial Email Subject: adding drop down menu to website
Support Case Month: March 2012

Hi.

I am done building my web menu. My coding is set so the drop down menus have an auto width however they aren’t adjusting to the correct widths..some have extra space and others have too little thus forcing the sub menus to become vertical instead of horizontal. Since each Sub Menu has somewhere between 1-3 columns I wasn’t sure how many to put in the style editor. I am wondering if it will in fact still look right on an html page. Which brings me to my other issue. I am planning on adding the menu to an existing site. It’s through Network Solutions, the menu would thus need to appear in the header design coding (to apply to all pages of the site). I’ve been reading through your knowledge bank but keep finding information on linking the menu to a site that has a local root on the desktop, this site does not. The site is http://www.driveinautosound.com.

I’ve attached my menu.

Thank you for all of your help and assistance!

Cheers,
Becky

Dear Becky,

If you turn the “Menu Structure” option back to “inside this project” you will see that you have set custom widths for most of your submenus:

menu minimum width

This is why these submenus are not becoming vertical, while the ones that do not have a width set become vertical.

There are two solutions for this:

1) change the menu back to “populate inside this project” so that the custom widths are actually active, and set widths for all submenus

OR

2) change your HTML code for each submenu so that it does not “brake”. One way would be to add your DIVs within TDs of a single table row.

Initial Email Subject: Firefox - Unexpanded menu on top of Google ads
Support Case Month: May 2012

I have a wide skyscraper Google ad that should show below a left side AllWebMenus menu. (Still in design/testing stage. Only the testing folder above has the menu in various stages of implementation. No images in that folder.) The menu is vertical, sliding, automatically highlights the current URL entry, and is set to push/pull content.

In Firefox, when the menu does not show a submenu, the menu overlaps the Google ad. Chrome and IE9 handle this as expected. Firefox does it right when there is a submenu.

Attempted solution failed: I set a specific position for the div containing the ad that should put the ad below the menu's initial height. The ad shows up that far below the menu instead of that far below the top of the window. <sigh>

What can I do to make Firefox show the ad down below the menu in its initial state?

It seems that the positioning image is not visible in the page you sent. If you add a “display: block;” it seems to work fine:

<img id="topleft" alt="" border="0" height="1"
src="
Library/graphics/entry/32clear.gif" width="175" style="display: block;">

Please double-check the rest of your page to see if you have something different than in the page where this works. Specifically look for css differences.

When the doctype is missing, Firefox shows the Google ads below the menu. When there is a doctype, the menu overlaps the ad in Firefox. I had no idea that some of my pages had lost their doctype statements!

I added the suggested display:block to the positioning image and (once I remembered to save all the saved pages!), Firefox is behaving nicely again.

Thanks! I would NEVER have come up with that solution.
