I have one question: can I insert a web menu into my blog platform blogspot.com? I mean a web menu that your program has generated

Thank you, hi from Russia!

Hello,

Blogspot.com is an online authoring tool. If it allows you to upload files online (javascripts, etc.) then you can do it.

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).

Does blogspot.com allows you to do so?

Hello again,

Yes, if you can upload the compiled menu files in one domain/host and link the menu to your pages in another domain/host, there should not be any problems.

The only case where this will not work properly, is if you have “https” secure pages, in which case the viewers will get a message for allowing scripts to run from a different domain every time they view a page.

The main idea is that you upload all the compiled files wherever you want, and then add the menu Linking Code with the full-path to wherever you uploaded the files.

Let me know if you need more help on how to implement this.

Initial Email Subject: hi how to get AWM to show up behind flash shadowbox?

Initial Email From: Ken

hi - how can I modify my all web menu so it appears behind the flash shadowbox that appears on my website?  As you can see, if you go to ***customer website here*** and click on the top center video box, it shows up behind the AWM menu, instead of in front of it like it should.

thanks,

ken

Dear Ken,

I see that your video popup has z-index=90, while the default AllWebMenus z-index is 1000.

Please change the AllWebMenus z-index value to something smaller (e.g. 50) to fix this problem:

clip_image001

Initial Email From: Tom

Hi, thank you for the quick reply.

Sorry for my badly written email. I'm building a Drupal 7 Website and I want a menu with a mouse over option.  I noticed on your web demo that you can have different displays colors etc per menu and I'm looking to do this for the website.
This is a link to want I have in mind www.next.co.uk.
Will the web menu have all the features available with the Drupal 7 add on as it would if I was using Dreamweaver?

Thanks again,
Tom

Hello Tom,

If the menu items are populated using the "Static" option, then you can have different colors per menu items, etc. You can actually do anything you like because you will add the items MANUALLY inside the AllWebMenus application.

But if you want the items to be retrieved dynamically by a database, then you need to use the "Dynamic" option which means that the items cannot have different styles (apart from the 3 groups of Main Menu, Submenu and Submenu+).

The URL that you sent me shows a "MEGA MENU". The items within each submenu are not "normal" menu items but each submenu is just ONE item that uses HTML inside it.

See this menu in our Example:

mega drop-down menu

Aris

A new option has been added in AllWebMenus v5.1.796, allowing you to change the Doctype of the Preview Pane (additional to the existing Encoding option):

DocType in AllWebMenus Preview

Before Build #796, the Preview Pane was always using the Doctype "XHTML 1.0 Transitional".

However, if you used a different Doctype in your actual pages (where your menu was linked to), you may had experienced differences in how the menu was rendered at Preview Pane vs those pages. The same applied for Encoding.

This inconsistency is solved through the "Doctype" property, where you can use any of the following options for the Menu Preview Pane:

None
HTML 4.01 Transitional
HTML 4.01 Strict
XHTML 1.0 Transitional (default)
XHTML 1.0 Strict
XHTML 1.1

Now, it is important to understand that both the "Doctype" and the "Encoding" values are used in previewing the menu within AllWebMenus only and are not applied to your actual pages. Your pages will have their own HTML code for Doctype and Encoding and therefore the menu will be rendered according to those values; NOT according to the Menu Preview values. The Menu Preview options are there just to facilitate the preview.

Since AllWebMenus v5.1.764, your menus can use 3 different styles for their groups and 3 different styles for their items:

Main Group Style
(initially assigned to the Main Menu Group, i.e. 1st level group)

Main Items Style
(initially assigned to the items of the Main Menu Group, i.e. 1st level items)

Sub Groups Style
(initially assigned to the 1st submenus stemming from the Main Menu items, i.e. 2nd level groups)

Sub Items Style
(initially assigned to the 1st submenu items contained in the above submenus, i.e. 2nd level items)

Sub Groups Style+
(initially assigned to the rest of submenus stemming from the above items, i.e. 3rd level groups and beyond)

Sub Items Style+
(initially assigned to the rest of submenu items contained in the above submenus, i.e. 3rd level items and beyond)

This is how a menu would look if the <Background Color> and <Border> on every item or group had the above colors that demonstrate the initial style assignments:

Available Styles menu

Note: The above assignments are the initial ones. If you wish, you can later change the assignments as wish.


Why is the 3rd style (i.e. "Style+") useful?



1. You can use themes that have different appearance on 3rd-level submenus and beyond:

Themes that use this technique: Juice, Fading Purple, FlatSky, Orange Bubbles (free, contained in your AllWebMenus by default)
You may also find extra themes using this technique from Theme Pack 36 and above at: http://www.likno.com/awmthemes.php

For example, at theme "Olive Plastic" (Theme Pack 36), its 3rd-level items (and beyond) use less padding than its 2nd-level items:

At the SlideTreeXP sliding menu theme (Theme Pack 38, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required), the 3rd-level items do not use an icon, while the 2nd-level items do:

Such arrangements would not have been possible if all submenus had the same style.

2. You can apply very interesting behaviors to sliding menus (available through the extra "Sliding Menu Add-in"), that combine both "sliding" and "non-sliding" cascading submenus!

For example, the SlideSummer sliding menu theme below (Theme Pack 37, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required)) uses a sliding submenu for all its Main Menu items, while the rest of its submenus are the standard non-sliding ones. Such "sliding/non-sliding" menu combinations are very suitable in many website layouts and would not have been possible if all submenus had the same style.



3. The 3rd-level submenus can differ from the 2nd-level submenus by only a small but very important detail, that allows for a different design if the parent group is horizontal or vertical.

At the following examples the 2nd-level submenu does not have a "Header" (its <Has Header> property is set to "No"), while the 3rd-level submenu (and beyond) needs to have a "Header" so that the design closes properly at top:

At the following sliding menu themes (Theme Pack 38, "Sliding Menu Add-in" required) the 2nd-level submenus are different than the 3rd-level submenus, either in colors, images or indentation:

Different colors & indentation:
