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

Support Case Month: June 2012

Hello Guys:
Knowing it's probably me, at 66 it seems difficult to grasp all of this.
Here is my problem: On our main site if you mouse over on the 4th button down you will get a 3 item SUB group, all works well. BUT if you click on the button that opens the sub-group (Parking Decals) it will generate a 404 error. Your requested file or folder URL, /sid:1051 cannot be found at the specified location.
This structure is imported from Front Page.
Thank you for any help you provide with this.
Bill

Dear Bill,

I checked your site and noticed that this is true for all menu items that have a submenu. It is likely that this is due to some FrontPage incompatibility.

Do you have actual pages that should be shown when clicking on a parent item? or do you want the parent items to simply not have links?

Also do you believe you could send us a zipped version of your FrontPage project so that we can try to reproduce the problem?

Hello Kostas:

> It is likely that this is due to some FrontPage incompatibility.

PLEASE don’t forget it could be something I did!  🙂

> do you want the parent items to simply not have links?

NO links for the parent buttons, just a place holder to open and pick from the sub. (this could be the problem)

> Also do you believe you could send us a zipped version of your FrontPage project so that we can try to reproduce the problem?

Do you mean the  generated menu files or the complete site, the site is 12+ megs.

Just to make sure I am setting FP up correctly let me attach a partial view of the FH Navigation structure.  (see attached)

I used a custom link bar where ever I needed a sub. I am not sure if this is correct, It’s the only way I could make this work!

Hello again,

I see that your parent links are not linked to standard pages (as is usually the case):

parent links not linked to standard pages

What is this link icon I see there? Are these HTML pages?

Also, if possible, please check the folder where you store your website.

If you have admin rights, you should be able to see a hidden folder named “_vti_pvt” and within this you should see a file named “structure.cnf”.

Please send me this file so that I can forward it to our developers.

The guy who did all of the for 13 years moved out of state the first of the year to care for his parents. Sad smile

The structure.cnf file is attached.

This weekend I must have changed/compiled this menu 10 to 12 times with NO problem.

Just now I went in there to do a screen capture and got a invalid procedure for the first time in over a week? (Attached)

I also attaches a screen capture Partial from inside allwebmenu.

> What is this link icon I see there? Are these HTML pages?

The places you have circled are the htm parent buttons that generate the error when you click.

Thanks again
Bill

Dear Bill,

Can you please download the latest AllWebMenus and see if this resolves the problem?

(our developer team told me they made some corrections in the latest build)

Initial Email From:
User
Initial Email Subject: 404 errors after compiling
Support Case Month: July 2012

When compiling the menu for site www.bucband.org I am receiving 404 errors when selecting one of the menu picks.  Before compiling I set the Site Root to C:\\Users\\MikePC\\Documents\\My Webs\\bucband .  Now when I compile the menu and copy the menu2.js file up to the domain host, I end up getting 404 errors.  When I select a menu link, instead of getting (for example) http://www.bucband.org/boosters/overview.htm , I get instead:
http://www.bucband.org/Mike/Documents/My%20Webs/bucband/boosters/overview.htm .  When I revert back to a previously generated menu I don't get this problem.

Appears that there is a relative versus absolute referencing problem here.  Can you suggest a solution ?

Hello,

When you changed the Site Root, you were asked if you wanted to “correct” the links. You pressed yes, and the application assumed that the Site Root was also changed online, which was not true I guess.

Currently your links point to the wrong direction. For example your “announcements” link points to:

../../../../Mike/Documents/My Webs/bucband/upload/announcements.shtml

When it should be pointing to:

/upload/announcements.shtml

You need to correct this in AllWebMenus. If you have a copy saved before the Root Folder change, it would save you some time. Note that you may also find such an automatic backup under:

"c:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\Likno Software\AllWebMenus\AutoBackup\.."

Alternatively, I would suggest that you use the “External Multi Editing” tool in order to mass-edit your links in Excel and save time.
