I need to be able to use this on a multisite WordPress platform where the main menu is shared between all site in the multisite platform.  Will Likno AllWebMenus work for this?

I read that but was unsure if the same menu structure could be used on all sites in the multisite (have a shared menu between all of the multisites)

is that doable with this

Hello Randy,

The settings on the AllWebMenus Plugin are applied for the WordPress site that each time you work with.

So, if you have for example 5 sites under this multisite installation, you need to do this process for each of the sites you want to have that menu.

Please, let me know if I can be of further help.

Thank you.

Initial Email Subject: Question on AWM use on specific WordPress pages
Support Case Month: January 2014

Good morning!

I am responsible for a website (URL REMOVED) that was created for us using WordPress. The site is for the general public to find information on us.

Now we are wanting to add something new—a private section of pages that only our missionaries would access. I know I can hide the pages from the WordPress menu; I’ve done it for a couple pages already. But, is it possible to use an AWM menu on *just* the group of hidden pages? In other words, the general public would only see the WordPress menu for the public pages. Our missionaries, when they would come to the hidden pages, would see a separate AWM menu for just the hidden pages.

Is that possible?

I also support several other websites (see below in my signature) that I’ve created in NOF. I use the NOF “hide from navigation” option to hide the main page, and that allows all the sub-pages below it to also be hidden, but have a menu. I don’t care for the clunkiness of the NOF menus; would AWM allow me to do what I want?

Thanks for your help!
Neil

Hello User,

Hmm…one idea would be to have 2 menus on your WP site so you can select 2 menus in AWM WP plugin, one that will be for the public areas and one for the admins.

You can set the menu positioning method to "Theme menu location" for example on your AWM WP plugin settings and then you can edit the file that should contain your menu, most probably the header.php file of your template. You could check if a user is logged in then serve the menu that is for logged in users if not then serve the public menu.

You may want to see more info on how to check If a user a logged in:  http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/is_user_logged_in

Please, let me know how that could work for you.

Thank you.

Kind Regards

Hello,

I may be interested in likno All Web Menus Pro, but have a question first. Will it work on a WordPress Multisite installation? I saw the question posted on the WordPress.org site, but no response. I also searched your knowledge base and found no such information.

Please advise,
Julie

The answer is yes, AllWebMenus WP Plugin can work on a multisite WP installation.

While you are in your WP Network Admin Panel go to Plugins, choose the AllWebMenus allwebmenus-wordpress-menu-plugin.1.1.19.zip and click on Install Now.

install AllWebMenus WP plugin

While this is installed, click Network Activate. Then, AllWebMenus WP plugin will be activated in your WordPress Site on that WordPress network installation.

So, you can go to each site's dashboard panel and you will find AllWebMenus WP Plugin in Settings -> AllWebMenus WP Menu.

Rod
Initial Email Subject: AllWebMenu Integration with WordPress 3.8
Support Case Month: January 2014

I am having trouble getting the AllWebMenus Pro (AWMP) to show up on WordPress (WP) 3.8 web site. The web site is on an internal server so I cannot send direct links, but I can send files of code or code snippets as necessary.

On the WP template file header.php, I have a <nav> element with id="site-navigation". When I publish the menu in AWMP I choose to position the menu relative to an Element with Custom ID: site-navigation. I install the compiled menu zip file successfully through the WP plugin, but the menu does not show up.

The name of the menu assigned in WP matches the name of the menu I enter into the AWM plugin, and the menu settings in the plugin are:

* Menu is populated from an existing "Wordpress menu"

* Menu type is Dynamic

* Location is Theme Menu Location: primary.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Hello Rod,

You need to change the Menu Positioning in AlWebMenus Pro and set it to Relative to an Element with the Default ID.

Then, you need to re-compile your menu project for WordPress and re-upload the zip file through the AllWebMenus WP plugin admin panel.

This way it should appear on your site.

Let me know how that worked for you.

Frank
Initial Email Subject: AWM with WordPress
Support Case Month: December 2012

Making good progress. Have two issues remaining:

1) The existing wordpress menu appears behind my AWM as a white box. Is there a way to remove the white box or WordPress menu (and keep the links to AWM)?  The white menu is not AWM, but WordPress. I've tried setting the menu background (in WordPress) to a transparent image, but that seems to be ignored and/or it doesn't expect transparency. At worst I can remake every AWM image to be larger so it covers the white background, but this is a minor pain. I had hoped AWM would "replace" the existing menu.

2) When you select a page, the old WordPress menu changed the color of the menu item to indicate you were in that page. For example, when at the Home page, the "Home" text was in a different color. With AWM there is no indication of what page you are in. Is there an option to handle this without having to add tags to every page in the site?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

1) You just have to disable the WordPress menu from WordPress. The AllWebMenus-WordPress plugin will take the menu structure directly from the database, regardless of the visibility status of the specific WordPress menu.

2) You can achieve this using the “Automatic Highlight” option:

Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi,

I couldn’t find any way to disable the menu in WordPress (only delete). If deleted, only the AWM menu edges appear, but there are no AWM items to select. (I upload the AWM zip after each test, since it goes away when the menu is changed).

wordpress menu is not appeared properly

I partly solved it by using a transparent background on the theme’s menu and modifying the theme templete’s CSS (yes a bad way to do it, but I have no intention of loading any theme updates).  Image above has the transparency trick applied to get rid of the WordPress White menu background.  While the menu is really still there under AWM, it’s no longer seen except for a flicker of the selected menu item or if you hover near the bottom of AWM (since the old menu extends 5 pixels below AWM).  I guess I’ll look for the menu php code inside WordPress and try and modify it.  Are you aware of any other tricks to getting rid of the existing menu, yet having AWM work?

The auto-highlight option works great! Thanks.

Rather minor, but is there a way to have each button’s width set to a fixed size (but auto-adjusted to fill the total menu width)?  I see in Main Items Style, Size, it’s either Auto or a fixed value, but the fixed value is not an ideal way to do it.  I’m looking for some Global option to auto-adjust the size to fill the menu area BUT in a way each button’s width is the same. If there is no option for this, I can experiment with fixed size that gets it close to the full width.

samw width menu items

Best regards,

Frank

Dear Frank,

Regarding hiding the menu, you should be able to do this by simply not selecting any menu to show:

select no wordpress menu to show

Regarding the menu items having the same size, you can achieve this with the “Uniform Items” property inside the “Menu Type” options:

uniform property - same size menu items
