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

Initial Email Subject:  Multilingual Menu Question?
Support Case Month: March 2012

We spoke a while back about using a version of AllWebMenus that could be translated into different languages. You had mentioned (although I've lost the email) something about using a 'CSS version' to accommodate that but it wasn't available yet.

1. Is this still possible?

2. And where/how do I get it to start working with it?

As always thank you for your wonderful support.

Sincerely,
Anthony

Yes, the CSS menu is available, but please remind me. Did you have a menu in a CMS (e.g. Joomla, Drupal, WordPress etc.)?

How did you want to use this?

We will actually be trying to put this menu into an ecommerce system called Interspire. My programmer seems to think that it will work.

Any thoughts?

PS - And how do I use the CSS menu? Is it already within the application somewhere or what?

Sincerely,
Anthony

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

The CSS menu is an option within AllWebMenus. Using this option, the menu will ignore any structure you have defined within the application and will instead try to build itself using a UL/LI structure in your page.

If Interspire produces a UL/LI structure, then this can be used and transformed into a menu.

ul li structure

Clicking on the question mark image will give you more info on this. Clicking on the “settings” link of the “UL/LI” feature will also give you sample code for what you need to have in your page.

Ok, I am wondering if you can help me with some honest and well thought out direction.

· Here is one of your menus created using CSS at www.govland.com. Here is a link to how Google translates it at http://goo.gl/F7ZEz.

· Here is another one of your menus created using CSS at www.securebydesign.co/index.htm. Here is a link to how Google translates it at http://goo.gl/h8rgc

You can see that styling properties get all messed up (ie. blue & purple links, or colors other than what I defined).

----------------------------------------------------

Now, I am building a new website at www.abinterfaces.com/airborne-labs-international . I hope to use your CSS menu system for both navigation bars at the top but they both must work with Google Translation and not look bad.

How do keep the styles in tact (ie. prevent default blue and purple link colors etc)?

As always, I truly appreciate any help that you can provide! You guys are the best.

PS - Here is a website that uses the feature without busting things up as an example at www.literacyforlife.org (choose 'Spanish' in button at top).

Sincerely,
Anthony

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Anthony,

I see that you are using the “UL/LI” method, but these are not CSS menus – they are still JS menus. I suggest that you try using CSS menus to see if this works better with Google Translate (it should):

css main menu

Hi

I installed the awmenu on the following site :

www.bjcole.co.uk

It has recently stopped working in Safari.

I have downloaded the latest version I am able to : (5.3 #846)

It works ok in Firefox / Chrome.

Is this an issue with your script - or - do I need a newer build ?

Thanks

Graeme

Dear Graeme,

It appears that the menu on your website was compiled with an *old* version of AllWebMenus (see “release history” here: http://www.likno.com/whatsnew.html ).

You need to update/upgrade your AllWebMenus and re-compile/re-upload your menu files, as the *old* compiled menu cannot support the latest browsers and standards. Some browser versions did not even exist by that time (e.g. Safari was officially released in June 2011).

How?

- Login to your Likno User Area at http://www.likno.com/userarea

- Click the "View/Manage Licenses and Plans":

user area

- See there if your Update Plan has expired or not.

            If "expired" then click the "Renew" link and renew your Update Plan.

- Download the current Version (Build) ( http://www.likno.com/download.html ) and install it.

- In your Likno User Area, click the "Get Activation Code" link and get a new Activation Code for this updated installation:

menu activation

- Open your old project file (.awm) in AllWebMenus, re-compile it and then upload the new menu files (along with the "awmdata" folder) to your website.

Note that you may need to delete your browser’s Temporary Internet Files (or cache files) before refreshing the page in order to see the menu.

Thanks!

Hi

Thanks for your quick response.

To confirm -

1. The build I’m using (#846) is the issue - and your script is now compatible with Safari 5 ?

2. If I purchase the current build (#890) - will I need any additional ‘add-ins’ to make my menu visually work as on the site - www.bjcole.co.uk ?

3. I am currently mostly developing Drupal 7 websites .. and now see there is an add-in for that - I will be using that too.

4. As a long term user having to re-purchase - is there any other ‘offer’ or Discount Code available ?

Looking forward to your response

Graeme

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Graeme,

1) Yes, our old version had the issue, and the latest version of AllWebMenus fully supports all the latest browsers including Safari 5.

2) No, you do not need any extra add-ins for this menu. You will only need an extra add-in if you want a “Sliding” (aka “Accordion”) menu.

3) Glad to hear this. You can download the Drupal module and read instructions in the following page:

http://www.likno.com/addins/drupal-menu.html

4) Yes! You should not re-purchase (this would cost $59.95). Instead you should login to your User Area account and “Extend” your “Update Plan”. This will cost you only $29.95 for one year of free updates (with more discount if you want more years)

Let me know if you do not remember your login details or need more help.

Initial Email From: Tom

Hi, thank you for the quick reply.

Sorry for my badly written email. I'm building a Drupal 7 Website and I want a menu with a mouse over option.  I noticed on your web demo that you can have different displays colors etc per menu and I'm looking to do this for the website.
This is a link to want I have in mind www.next.co.uk.
Will the web menu have all the features available with the Drupal 7 add on as it would if I was using Dreamweaver?

Thanks again,
Tom

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Tom,

If the menu items are populated using the "Static" option, then you can have different colors per menu items, etc. You can actually do anything you like because you will add the items MANUALLY inside the AllWebMenus application.

But if you want the items to be retrieved dynamically by a database, then you need to use the "Dynamic" option which means that the items cannot have different styles (apart from the 3 groups of Main Menu, Submenu and Submenu+).

The URL that you sent me shows a "MEGA MENU". The items within each submenu are not "normal" menu items but each submenu is just ONE item that uses HTML inside it.

See this menu in our Example:

mega drop-down menu
