Knowledge Base support case for Likno Web Tabs Builder,  abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.

Initial Email Subject: Unexpected behavior in Tabs
Support Case Month: April 2013

Hi,

I have looked everywhere that i can think off, but cannot find the style to correct this problem.

When I initially go to this page, the tabs menu looks correct. As I click across the menu (Description > Features > Contact Us), the menu works as planned.

However, if I next click on Description, the body copy moves up to the edge of the top margin of the body graphic and will not return, unless the page is reset.

I also can correct the problem by finding the code using Firebug and changing the "positioning" style from "Relative" to "Absolute" (see below).

<li class="liknotabs_body" style="width: 700px; position: relative; top: 0px; left: 0px; display: block; overflow: visible; height: 295px; padding-top: 0px; padding-bottom: 0px; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 0px; border-top-width: 0px; border-bottom-width: 0px;">

However, I cannot find the place in the Tabs menu application to make this change.

Please advise.

Thanks,
John

Dear John,

It seems that this issue is caused by the way that browsers understand margin. Specifically, the problem is that margins need some kind of “wall” to push against, otherwise they are ignored.

If for example you add a 1px padding-top to your <div class="synecomm"> and remove the margin-top, you will get the result you wanted, because the 15px margin of the inner elements will work against this padding.

If you need more help, please export and send me the tabs project and I will do this for you.

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.
