Support Case Month: May 2013

Hello,
I notice on some computers the dropdown menu is under the flash rotating image that I have on the website.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Indeed in Internet Explorer your menu goes behind the flash scroller.

This happens because the flash applet ignores the z-index ordering. To resolve this problem, you need to add the ?wmode=transparent? parameter into your flash applet, so that it respects the z-index order.

Please have a look here for more details and examples:

Support Case Month: April 2013

Right now I am using Silver Bar Menu.I would like to use another dropdown round menu button that I would be able to change the colors to Red.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

I am afraid that this is not possible, as these are fixed images inside this folder:

Due to their "degradation" it is very difficult to make the red & blue.

Thanks for the very fast support

Can you suggest a dropdown menu button that I can change the colors.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Look at the horizontal themes and choose one that is "plain", without images on its background, like this for example:

Then, you can change the colors yourself through the style editor.

I need to use a rounded dropdown menu that I can change the colors to.I also need it about the same length.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

If you want to make the submenu rounded, you just need to adjust the related style property:

Initial Email Subject: CSS menu compiles with JavaScript?
Support Case Month: April 2013

Hi,
I am using AllWebMenus Pro version 5.3 build #908 to make a CSS horizontal dropdown menu.  My understanding was that it would not require or use javascript at the cost of some of the more dynamic features.  When I compile the menu and link it to my webpage though, It creates a "menu.js" file (along with a "menu.css" file) and this javascript code is inserted into the head tag of my linked page as well.  Unfortunately, the menu is not appearing in Chrome version 26.0.1410.43 anyway.
I want a menu that is pure CSS.  Why is the javascript file even being generated and is it really necessary?  I appreciate the help in advance.
Jeff

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Jeff,

When a menu is “Pure CSS”, this means that it is able to function without any need for JavaScript. Still, there is no reason to cut back on the extra features when the viewer’s browser supports JavaScript!

In our case, the generated JS file only adds some extra features such as keyboard navigation and compatibility for older browsers that could not support CSS menus (such as IE6).

If you remove the JS file you will see that your menu still looks the same and is fully functional with the mouse in all recent browsers.

Finally regarding Chrome 26, something must be wrong in your implementation, so I will need to see your page to find what is wrong. Please send me the URL so that I can have a look.

Kostas,

Thank you for clarifying the inclusion of the javascript files but something there seems to be amiss.  My menu visibility issue was a foolish error - I was using a CLASS to define the style rather than the default ID.  (I would love to be able to specify this difference before compiling but Dreamweaver's "search and replace all" feature does the trick as well.)

Now if I leave the awmdata.js file attached to my index.php page then the menu appears below the header image (as it should) for only a second before popping the menu elements into the upper left corner of the page.  Removing this link to awmdata.js at least puts the menu where it should be but there is also something with the size of the parent item when hovering over an element with a submenu.  I also am not seeing the arrow icon I wanted to use to indicate that there is a submenu.

I seem to be required to define a static width+height for menu items.  Is there no way to dynamically size a menu item to accommodate its unique size?  Removing the width:0px from the #mainnav > li element seems to work but how would I opt for this within the AllWebMenus interface?

Jeff

Dear Jeff,

I just checked your pages and I see that you have removed most of the code from the CSS, so your menu is not really a menu anymore:

menu preview

Regarding the top-left positioning, this is most probably because you have indeed set this positioning in the application. If you do not have any JavaScript, then the menu appears wherever you put the UL/LI code, but you can never have a pixel-perfect positioning this way. When you have JavaScript, then the positioning property of the application is used instead. I am guessing you have left this to the default which is top-left of window with an offset of 10px:

menu positioning

You could use a positioning Relative to Element with class=“container” to make sure that this works properly when you have JavaScript.

Regarding the “HasSubMenu image”, this is unfortunately one of the features that only works when you do have JavaScript enabled, as it is not possible to perform such checks with CSS. If you wanted this to work with pure CSS, then you would have to manually add the “daddy” to each LI that has a submenu, for example:

<ul id="mainnav">

    <li><a href="treasurepools.x10.mx">HOME</a></li>
    <li class="daddy"><a href="treasurepools.x10.mx/services">SERVICES</a>
            <ul>
              <li>
                  <a href="
treasurepools.x10.mx/services/cleaning">
                     CLEANING
                  </a>
              </li>

              <li>
                  <a href="
treasurepools.x10.mx/services/maintenance">
                     MAINTENANCE
                  </a>
              </li>

              </li>

Initial Email Subject: flash image in front of dropdown menu
Support Case Month: July 2012

Hi,

We are having an issue with that as well. We have a flash image that now we are finding is covering the dropdown when you mouse over. What can I do to put the dropdown ON TOP OF the flash image? If it helps, the web address is http://www.conest.com/default_video_new_menu3.asp. Please let me know what the solution is asap. I need to get this page up to replace the homepage.

Thanks
Cary

P.S. Just wanted to mention that I already have the z-index set to 1000.

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Cary,

Did you click on the following LINK which gives more info on what to do?

I’ve been trying that, but it’s not quite fitting with the way m Flash has been coded in. Where would I place it? The code is brief for the flash and follows:

<td width="730" height=100 valign=top><embed src="/flash/entry13.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF  width=730 height=232 salign=L type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></td></tr><tr>

Where would I fit the code referred to in the link? I believe it’s ('wmode','Transparent') supposed to be in 3 places in the example.

Thanks much.

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

If you use the full flash code, then there are three distinct places where you can put “wmode”.

However you seem to use a much shorter version that only has the <embed> part. Hence, following the help example, you should add:

wmode="transparent"

flash object wmode transparent

So please correct the “ 'wmode', 'Transparent' ” that you added and instead use the correct code.

Kostas

December 8th, 2012AWM: Drop Down menu in IE9

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


Initial Email From:
Brian
Initial Email Subject: Menu problem on IE9
Support Case Month: September 2012

We currently have AllWebMenus Pro Ver 5.2 #808 on our website. We do not have any contact info for the old web developer and we are trying to fix the menu drop downs in IE 9. The domain is nazunitedway.org. Is there a fix for this, or do we need to upgrade to the latest version 5.3. You can take a look at the site and see it doesn’t work in ie9.

Let me know how I should proceed.

Thanks,
Brian

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Brian,

indeed there have been many changes and support of new browser versions since then. See here:

http://www.likno.com/whatsnew.html

So you will have to get the latest version of AllWebMenus and just re-compile your menu. I hope you do have the source .awm project file of the menu, because you will need this in order to re-compile.

I have located the .awm file. Once I purchase the new version how do I upload the menu to the site via FTP?

Thanks,

Brian

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Brian,

Once you purchase the new version, you will Compile your project again. This will produce some JS files (by default a "menu.js" file and an "awmdata" folder).

You can directly upload these to your server with your favorite FTP application. (or if you are using Dreamweaver, Expression Web etc. these usually have their own uploading tools)
