Hi Kostas,

I have one last request. I just need to space out the main menu options on top. What would you suggest to be the best way to do this?

Thanks
Cary

Dear Cary,

Actually I checked your menu again and I see that it is pretty wide already! It is so wide (although transparent) that it creates a horizontal scrollbar to your site:

menu is so wide that creates horizontal scrollbar

I assume that this happens because you set it to “Menubar” (so it takes the width of the page):

menu is set to menubar

My suggestion is that you remove the “Menubar” setting, and instead just give it the size you want using the “minimum width”:

minimum width of menu

Also, a final suggestion regarding your Positioning. First, find the following code in your page (where the Positioning Anchor is contained):

<td width=200 valign="middle">

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"><span id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>&nbsp;</span></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

And change it into this:

<td width=200 valign="middle" id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

So that the menu is attached to the <td>. Then go to the AllWebMenus Positioning and do something like this:

menu positioning settings

Of course you can adjust the offsets accordingly…

Good idea. I’ll see what it does. Also, why is the dropdown menu skewing off to the left? Is there any way to center it under the group choices?

Dear Cary,

Check these three properties for the submenu.

Is there any way that I can make the dropdown menus more responsive on the mouse over? There are times when it takes a few passes over the menu choice before the drop down appears. We can’t afford to have our customers play mouse games to access any menu features.

Thanks

Dear Cary,

I see that your submenus disappear too quickly and sometimes you have to be quick to move the mouse over them.

To fix this you need to put some delay on the “Disappears How” feature, and maybe also bring the submenus closer to the main menu items (they have a couple of pixels empty space between them.

Thanks. What would I change to bring the submenus closer?

Dear Cary,

Try “appears where” (of which I sent a screenshot two mails ago).

Note: I strongly recommend that you take some time to skim through the different application properties.

This way you will have a general idea of what you can do and where to find it.

Thanks again. Found it right after I emailed you. Hopefully that will do the trick.
