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

Initial Email Subject: Hidden, Linked Header?
Support Case Month: October 2012

Hi:  I have all your software and need to know if any of them will help me create a hidden, linked header...to clarify, it would be above the page header, but hidden unless you click on something and then it becomes the header until you close it or leave it.  Does this make sense?  I've seen this on many websites.  I can't seem to find any css to help me do this though.

Hello, yes this is possible with our products, but can you please give us an example of a website that does the same so that we direct you properly? Also, can you send us the URL of your website where this effect will be added (maybe with some screenshot on where this should appear, etc.).

Dear Marie,

We just released a new version of Likno Tabs Builder that will do exactly what you are asking for.

Please download it and have a look at the new Example 26:

http://likno.com/jquery-tabs/download.php

The main idea is that you check the “collapsible” feature and that you set the Tab Control to start with all tabs closed:

collapsible web tab

Then you just need to position your tab to the top of the page.

Hello, Please go here http://www.the-kellys.co.uk/absent/absent.shtml

after a moment a modal window will appear. The window has been set to not reappear for 1000 days if user puts tick in checkbox.  Please do that your self AND then select the close option.  Now refresh the page and

the modal window will appear again.   BUT if you tick the box and left

click outside the modal window...the modal window will not reappear as required.

Please note the z-index is deliberately set the way it is so that the main menu is still available.

Dear John,

I just tested your modal, and I did not see a difference between the close button and the left click. Both stored the cookie and both blocked the modal.

One thing I did notice however, is that the cookie was set to expire at the end of the session instead of 1000 days as you wanted. Could it be this that confused your test? Did you close and re-open the browser after checking the close button?

Dear John,

You were spot-on as usually!

I saw the problem, and it is our fault as the instructions were wrong in the help file. Specifically the second parameter should be "lwmw_noreopen_period" instead of "noreopen_period".

Please correct this in your code, and we will also correct it in the help file for the next release.

Hello,

Ok, problem solved, I am now going to take a look at what happens if the user changes his mind....having effectively said "Never show me that modal window again" the user then realises he wants to read it again....How does that work...putting a simple link to the window doesn't work...tried it.

Best Wishes, John

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear John,

When you select one of the options to "not show the window again", a special cookie is stored that will not allow the window to open again until the cookie is removed.

Depending on your options, this cookie may expire after you close your browser, or it may expire after a thousand days...

The way to revert this is to delete the cookie. And the best way to do this is probably with a line of code like the following:

<div onclick="lQuery.cookie('absentfriendsintro_absent_friends_intro',null); absent_friends_intro();">reshow window</div>

In the above code, that the blue part deletes the cookie and the green part re-opens the window. Note that the cookie name is composed by the compiled project name, concatenated with the modal window name by an underscore.

F3 Page The last of the options for closing a window should adopt the name set by the user but remains fixed at \"likno-modal-project-close\"

and the \"click\" option

Dear John,

Thanks for the feedback! This was a simple refresh issue, and it is fixed in the new release that I just uploaded.

Hello,

That is great.

I have a question, or rather, there is something I want to achieve with a modal window which presently it will not do (I think)

I have a modal window called befair. It has a short statement saying I promise I will not take pictures from this area. That part is going to be tarted up with IP numbers etc.  I removed all via the screen abilities to close the modal window and I moved the CLOSE link to the bottom centre and re-worded it to say "I Agree" I then set the window so that it would not return for 14 days.  All of it is in working order but it does not do what I want. I'm sure your thinking it so before you say it, yes I know this will not stop the experienced from taking anything they like.

If the user simply refreshes the underlying page the modal window does not appear and the "I Agree" was not used. The point of the exercise is lost.

What I would like to do is using the same kind of window, force it to re-appear UNTIL the user clicks "I Agree", the Close option, and then not appear again for the specified number of days. At the moment it seems that the cookie is set the moment the modal window is created. It would be nice if you could create the cookie after the modal window close event is triggered by one of the preferred methods. What do you think ?

Best Wishes, John

Dear John,

If I understand correctly, you want to have a window that will not constantly reopen until you check "I agree" and then close it?

Then you need to:

1) set the "agree" checkbox as follows:

<input type="checkbox" class="lwmw_noreopen" lwmw_noreopen_period="14" style="vertical-align: -3px;"/> I Agree

2) set the “After Close” to re-open the window right after it closes:

open close modal window settings

Let me know if this worked and send me a URL to check if it doesn’t.

Support Case Month: March 2012
Initial Email Subject: Different results in IE browsers

Initial Email From: Dave

I have just started using your software, so I am very new.

I used the Web Modal Window builder to create a popup window. I am very pleased with the results.

However, I noticed that in Internet Explorer on some computers it has strange effects. On some computers the popup will appear, but then it won't go away; not with the escape key, with clicking the close button or by clicking outside the window. On other computers it opens the popup HTML in a new window.

Is there something I am missing? Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't noticed any similarities except that the problems exist in Internet Explorer. I have used versions 7, 8 and 9 on Windows XP and 7. Firefox seems to have no problem. Neither does Chrome.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

It seems that the problem originates from the (non-Likno) menu that you have. Specifically, this menu uses a very old version of jQuery, which produces JavaScript errors in IE and in turn blocks the correct execution of our own library (which uses a newer version of jQuery).

Please check your page and try changing this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js"></script>


Into this:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

Let me know if this fixed the problem. Also note that in IE you may need to delete the “Temporary Internet Files” before you see the changes.

Best Regards,

Hello,

We have released a new version of Likno Web Modal Windows Builder: Build #246

Check out What's New:

- New feature: "Make certain forms show their results in a specified Modal Window". It is used so that the user views the results of a form (i.e. the content after the form's "submit" button is pressed) into a modal window opening above the page.

Modal Window Form Results

- Fixed an issue with the "Do not re-open on same user" option when the "Opens on Page Load" was selected: it caused the "Do not re-open" to be active when it should not.

- Made some interface improvements.

 

You can download the latest version at:
