In this post we show how you can position your menu to your WordPress site/blog using AllWebMenus Pro and AllWebMenus WordPress Plugin.

Assuming that you have already installed AllWebMenus WordPress Plugin to your WordPress site/blog, let’s see how you can position your menu.

Step 1: Go to Plugins –> Installed Plugins 

Installed Plugins in WordPress

Step 2: In your Installed Plugins you will AllWebMenus WordPress Menu Plugin, click on Settings.

Step 3: On Menu Positioning Method you have the following choices:

AllWebMenus WordPress menu positioning methods

Custom position: you can choose custom position in cases that you need to position your menu relative to an existing element/image in your page or in case you want it to a specific place.
If you choose custom position make sure that you set the related positioning properties in your AllWebMenus (application).
You need to set your menu positioning relative to an element that already exists in your page or if you set it relative to an element that is not currently in your page, make sure to add it.

Menu positioning relative to an element

Note that you can also leave the default menu positioning in your AllWebMenus (which is relative to Window), so the menu will appear relative to window.

Widget: you can choose the widget menu positioning method in case you want the menu to appear in your themes sidebar. If you choose this method, you don’t need to make any menu positioning changes in AllWebMenus (application) as AllWebMenus is going to take control of this.
This option requires you to go to Appearance –> Widgets

WordPress Widgets

In the Inactive Widgets you will find a widget called AllWebMenus: {your menu name}, Drag this from Inactive Widgets

WordPress AllWebMenus inactive widget

and Drop it where you want it to appear.

Theme Menu Location: In this method you will usually see the “Theme Menu Location: primary…” and in some cases if the theme supports it you may see the “Theme Menu Location: secondary”. These are the predefined menu positions that your theme provides.
In case, you select the Theme Menu Location method you don’t need to change anything according to menu positioning in AllWebMenus, as the application is going to take control of that.

The above is only part of the menu positioning, you need to follow all the steps in order to create a menu for your WordPress site/blog. You can find all the instructions here:

Hi,

From past support answers, I know that we can host the menu on a separate server and on it's own site. We are working on doing just that but my developer asked me to relay this question to you for an answer.

"Can you get in touch with Likno and confirm whether or not we can upload the JS and related files to an accessible server, and then install the menu on Blogger.  I successfully embedded a widget to my test Blogger blog.  The widget contains links to JS files hosted on a 3rd party server, so in theory, it should work."

Thank you for your time and patience.

Steve

Dear Steve,

We have done similar test in the past. There should be no problem in uploading your JS file in a different server and this should work in Blogger or anywhere else, as long as you are not using the menu in https pages. If you try to do this with https pages then it is considered a security breach as all files must originate strictly from the same server (in this case even “likno.com” and “www.likno.com” are considered different domains!).

Hello,

I would like to know how to go about placing a menu in my sidebar (widget).  For example, what kind of position do I use?  Also, do I place the code in a "text" widget then place it in the side bar of my choice? 

Thank you
Celia

Dear Celia,

You can create a widget from within the AllWebMenus Plugin settings:

AllWebMenus Plugin settings

Then you can position this widget anywhere you want from the WordPress settings.

Please follow the instructions you will see there.

Support Case Month: September 2012

Hi:

I am very interested in your AllWebMenus Pro product, but need to know if I am able to create the following menu as a Flex/Flash widget (SWF file). If so, do you have instructions how to do so in your Knowledgebase once I buy the product?

Your prompt response is much appreciated since I need to build this for a client this weekend.

Thanks,

Michael

Dear Michael,

I am afraid that AllWebMenus does not produce flash files. We only have JavaScript-based products.

Is there a specific reason why you would want this to be a flash applet? I am asking as I can only think of cons and no pros in this.

(Flash is not supported everywhere, it requires plugins to be installed into the browser, it is heavier, it is going to be dropped altogether by Apple & Google etc)

So, I use flash widgets to integrate with a BI tool called microstrategy. I am kind of stuck until they support HTML5. I am able to setup an HTML container. Basically  this is to create a selector for a dashboard versus a menu for a web page. If the example generates JavaScript or Actionscript, I can include your library to create the widget, and then use the code in the CDATA part of the Script tag. I welcome your thoughts.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Michael,

I am afraid I am not aware of “microstrategy” at all. Still, our tools generate JavaScript and HTML, so it sounds as it will not be a problem.

The minimum requirements for AllWebMenus to work is that:

1) you are able to directly insert a HTML snippet in your page (the so-called “Linking Code”)

2) you are able to directly upload files to your server (preferably with FTP access)

Are these requirements met by your system? If so, then there should not be a problem.

Here is an example of the HTML code (“Linking Code”) you will need to insert in your page:

<!-- ******** BEGIN ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->
<script type='text/javascript'>
      var MenuLinkedBy='AllWebMenus [2]', awmBN='GN';
      awmAltUrl='';
</script>
<script src='/menu.js' language='JavaScript1.2' type='text/javascript'>
</script>
<script type='text/javascript'>awmBuildMenu();</script>

<!-- ******** END ALLWEBMENUS CODE FOR menu ******** -->

First of all, I assume that you refer to the AllWebMenus application (not modal).

Did you make sure that your menu item is set to “HTML-Full”?

If you did and it still doesn’t work, can you please export and send me the menu project so that I can have a look?

export menu project

Oops! You are right…

This code has a <script> tag that tries to write into the menu element. Indeed this will not work as the <script> tag tries to run when you first show the item (much after the full page has loaded), something which is not allowed.

Not sure if there is a workaround for this. I’ll have a look at your script and email you again.

I did have a look at the script, but since it is a given online script that you cannot change, you will have to do a trick.

You’ll have to use the UL/LI method for loading the AllWebMenus structure. This way, the script will run and produce the desired code within the LI. Then once the page is loaded the menu will take this LI as its content and build the rest of the menu.

Note that with UL/LI you can only use the Style Editor and any item customizations are ignored.
