I am in the process of adding a WordPress installation to my web site. I will be needing to maintain *both* handcoded pages AND WordPress pages/posts, and would like to maintain a single menu for *ALL* pages. I have been using AllWebMenus on our site for a while now, and would like to use the existing menu that I maintain on my handcoded pages on my WordPress pages, too. I don't want to control any menu content with WordPress ... I want my regular menu and navigation to stay the same wherever a user is on my site. The WordPress plugin *seems* to be about imposing the WordPress menu structure into the AWM menu ... but I don't want to do that.
Here's a URL for an example of one of my hand coded pages that I will be keeping:
I would like to place the *SAME* menu into my WordPress header, which you can see here:
Is this possible to do? What do I need to do to accomplish this?

The WordPress plugin is there only to help you with the integration. It does offer you the ability to use the structure of a WordPress menu, but it does not impose this.
If you set the menu to be “Static” online, then you do not need to import the menu structure at all (you’ll hit the “publish” button in the plugin, but do not import the code into AllWebMenus). Just compile your existing menu for WordPress and upload it using the plugin “publish”.
Furthermore if you want a single compile, you do not even need to install or use the plugin at all. In this case, just manually add the menu Linking Code into the “header.php” of your WordPress Theme.
Just make sure that your positioning is ok. For example if you are using a positioning “Relative to Element” make sure that the specific element also exists in the WordPress pages.
