When I open an external page in the modal window, I see the background color of the window's "Body Area" covering parts of the external page.


Web-designers sometimes tend to forget assigning a background-color to their page if they want it to have a white background. This however is wrong and can have side-effects in some browsers and some cases.

Specifically if you load a page without background-color in an iframe, Google Chrome, Safari and Firefox will all treat the page background-color as transparent and will show the contents of the containing object behind the iframe. Internet Explorer and Opera on the other hand, will automatically set the page background to white.

In the case of Modal Windows, loading an external page that has no background-color will cause it (in the above specified browsers) to display the background-color you have set for the "Body Area" through the "Body CSS".

In this case we suggest that you either:

1)      put a background-color in the <body> of the external page (preferred option)

2)      put a white background to the modal window (through the "Body CSS" property)

When you build a menu in AllWebMenus Pro application, you apply a theme to this (usually the default one).

1. How to apply a built-in Theme in your menu.

The Themes that do not contain images and are text and color based can of course be customized by the application; you just need to edit the <Background Color> property (and perhaps any other property that involves colors) in all the Available Styles of the Style Editor (i.e. Main Group Style, Main Items Style, etc...).

2. How to change the Background Color property.

The Themes that do contain images cannot be customized color-wise within the AllWebMenus Pro. You can however customize the images that the menu is using (you can find these images in the NameOfThemes-assets folder which resides in the Theme Gallery\Vertical or Theme Gallery\Horizontal folder under the installation folder of your AllWebMenus Pro application (i.e. C:\Program Files\AllWebMenus5\Theme Gallery). Open the images with your favorite image editor and change their color, save them (it is recommended to keep backup files of the default Theme Packs of AllWebMenus Pro) and use them in  your menus!

Of course you can also create your own images from scratch, according to the needs of your website  and use them in the application to create your own menus - even your own Themes. You can find all the appropriate information about how to use your own images in your menu through your AllWebMenus Pro application to Help -> What is... -> The Image Manager.

In addition to the built-in Themes of the program, you can also purchase from the various Theme Packs that we have created. You can have a look at the Theme Packs here: http://www.likno.com/awmthemes.php.
