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

My first project is the following:

- a simple vertical menu with a header and approximately 60 entries

- menu to open when the header is clicked (or potentially visible always)

- each menu has an embedded link

There are so many choices and options in AllWebMenus that I can't decide where to start.

Also, I have the menu lines with the associated links in a spreadsheet.  Can I load those without retyping?

Thank you.

Hello,

I would recommend you to use the External Multi Editing option so that you wont type the items again and you will be able to faster edit your menu items.

In order to do so, go to Tools -> External Multi Editing and Export XML file in your existing project. This will export your menu in an .xml file. Open that xml file in Microsoft Excel or any other SpreadSheet program. Then, paste there your items that you have in the other spreadsheet file, just be careful to be in the correct fields.

menu items external multi editing

Save the xml file.

Then, go back to AllWebMenus -> Tools -> External Multi Editing and click on Update menu from XML file and select the xml file.

update menu from XML

This will import the menu items in your menu structure.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Support Case Month: February 2013

Hi Kostas,

I am pleased with the scroller that’s currently on {URL REMOVED} but need to change it from internal assets to an external xml file.

I have looked through your help section but can’t find anything that gives me any information on how to construct the xml file.

As you will see the scroller is used by an Estate Agent, so, being currently based on internal assets I have to continually amend the individual details of the frequently changing properties. I would like to automate this process, so I would guess that an xml file is the way to go.

I could perhaps arrange for an xml file to be constructed from the property database that the Estate Agent uses. The problem is that I don’t know how to write the xml file so that the scroller will display the information correctly. If I could see an example of an xml file, perhaps one that would give us a scroller that looks like the current one on the website with just 2 or 3 properties, I can then see what we need to do.

Are you able to help?

Kind regards,
Alec

Dear Alec,

I believe the best way to go would be to use the “DIVs” population method:

populate slider items through DIV elements

This way you will have the actual content inside your page, which will enhance SEO, and you can still generate it dynamically from a database.

If you go to your current project, change it to “DIVs” and go to the Sample Code tab (F4) you will see exactly what you need to add into your page for this to work.

Let me know if you need any specific help with the implementation.

Best Regards,
Kostas

Initial Email Subject: Mega drop Down and Joomfish
Support Case Month: December 2012

Hello,

First I want to thank your help on the Mega Drop Down menu of the page in reference. However I haven't finished yet...

1. The About Us Item should have a different width than the other two, but when I do so the webpage and the preview image of the application show me the right width once and then it drops a lighter shadow to match the width of the other two menu items Go Dive and Go Pro (right now is set with the same width than the other two)

2. As you know/notice I'm working with a joomla platform and this site is going to be bilingual, thus I'm using joomfish.... usually I do have problems translating menu because I use Dynamic menu type, but this one I'm using is Static... So in order to add the AW Menu to joomfish I need an .xml file of the component... can you help me? Thanks in advance.

Hello again,

1) If you send me the menu I can check what’s wrong and tell you how to fix it.

2) I am afraid that this is not possible. If you are using a static menu, then you need to simply have a separate menu for each language. You can then use the menu component to specify in which pages each menu should appear.

Initial Email Subject: XML Sitemap for http://sukiskincare.com/
Support Case Month: April 2012

The site http://sukiskincare.com/ was built with many AllWebMenus (as required by the designers).  Is there a simple way to generate an XML and Google sitemap for all pages of the site?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Stan,

We do have a similar feature in AllWebMenus ("Create Sitemap"), however this cannot be applied in your case because:

1. One of your menus (the main menu) is a "mega menu" which means that many items are actually entire HTML (with many links etc.) and this HTML cannot be included in a sitemap entry (which requires just links).

2. Each project will create its own sitemap. There is no functionality for creating a "global" sitemap derived from multiple menu projects.

So, I am afraid that this cannot be done with AllWebMenus (which has this feature for "simple" and single menus) but you can definitely do this easily by using the Google Webmaster tools:
http://www.google.com/webmasters/

This is more appropriate as it will index all your pages, even the ones that are not included in the menu.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Did you by any chance have Trees already open when you copied the files? If so you need to restart the application.

I just downloaded your theme and copied the xml file & folder into the installation Themes folder, and when I opened the Drop Down Menu Trees application the theme appeared without problems:
