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

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.

We have a text editor that we use.  It has a tool called HTML Tidy that is finding errors in our code for our Menus.  The errors it is finding, do not make sense to us.

Could you take a look and tell me what you think...

This is the code:

Dear Bob,

All warnings for “line 1” appear because HTML Tidy expected a full page with <html>,<head>,<body> tags etc. I assume that you indeed have these in your page, but you just checked part of your code with HTML Tidy.

All “<li>” warnings appear because of the “<br>” you have between <li> elements. According to HTML rules, nothing should be between “<li>” elements.

The “<p>” warnings appear because you should not have <ul><li> within a <p>, but the other way around.

Finally the “<a>” warning is because this link does not really have a link (in the href sense).

Note that all of these are warnings and you do not have any errors in your code.
