Email Subject: Using an asp.net form in a megamenu
Support Case Month: May 2013

Is there a way to include an asp.net form within a menu subgroup? We have a conventional html-based megamenu design, to which I would like to add asp.net controls to display item prices and urls loaded from a datasource.

Dear John,

This is not impossible, but it may be tricky and in any case it requires custom code.

It is not possible to include server-side code (ASP) into client-side code (JS), but it is possible to include it in the HTML of your page.

Hence I believe the best approach is to use an in-page UL/LI structure for populating your menu and include the ASP there.

Note that AllWebMenus can give you a sample code of the UL/LI you need to have in your page, based on your existing menu:

clip_image001

clip_image002

clip_image003

That was fast, Kostas! 

I appreciate your answer, but I don't believe it answers my question. 🙂

We already have a megamenu with subgroup items that are in HTML.  My question is whether we can use asp.net controls within the subgroup's HTML. I tried it, but it didn't seem to want to work.

Does that explain my problem more clearly?

I hope all's well with you.

Regards

John

Dear John,

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I will try to explain this further.

I understand that you typed your HTML code within AllWebMenus, right? This means that the HTML code is included in the compile JavaScript file which you then upload online.

The problem is that any code you add in a JavaScript file, will not be processed by the server, hence any server-side code you add (such as the ASP include code) will appear as plain HTML or text inside your menu and will not be processed by the server.

If on the other hand you put your population code in your HTML page, then (if you also have this configured on your server, which is very likely) this page will be first processed by the server for server-side code and it will then be served to the client. This way the server-side code will work.

The downside of using UL/LI code to populate your menus is that you need to have this code in each of your pages, however this is not much of a problem as you can add this code in yet another ASP include file, or (if you have one) in your template file.

I hope this was more clear than my previous answer. Let me know if you need more help.

Initial Email Subject: MegaMenu not being displayed on Safari browsers
Support Case Month: July 2012

I'm using AllWebMenus on a new version of my site (I really love your program!). All is was well until I was in an Apple store and noticed that the menu doesn't appear at all when the site is viewed on any Safari browser: not on the Mac, iPad or even Safari running on Windows.

I've tried eliminating all z-index settings, removing graphics and changing the position of the menu but nothing worked. The menu does display really well in IE, FireFox and Chrome - all on Windows, and on Chrome on the Android OS.

The test website is at www.tufac.com.
Any ideas on what I should try next?

Thanks!

Dexter

Hello Dexter,

version of AllWebMenus

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. IE9 was officially released in March 2011).

How?

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

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

view manage menu licenses

- 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:

get activation code

- 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.

Kostas

Support Case Month: July 2012

I am interested in building a mega menu for my web site. I have no coding experience & would like a software package to upload or drop in code to my xsitepro web site builder. Can a mega menu (for example with drop down fly outs to mega content on a submenu, etc.) be build with your system without coding experience? Thanks.

Steve

Dear Steve,

The mega-menus require that you style the content yourself with HTML. This means that you do not need any real coding experience (as the scripts take care of the menu workings), but you will need some HTML knowledge in order to design your menu content. You can download our mega-menu examples to see what this HTML code should look like.

Of course, if you have no HTML experience, there is always the option of hiring us to create the menu you want. If you want a quote on this, please describe the menu you want in as much detail as possible. If possible also send us the menu structure and if you want it to be like a menu you’ve seen somewhere, also send the URL.

Kostas

Initial Email Subject: Feature Available?
Support Case Month: October 2012

I have been a subscriber since around 2003 for AllWebMenu’s Pro. I just renewed and I’m wondering if AllWebMenu’s do something like the navbar seen here? http://www.softlayer.com/

Specifically, I want to put multiple links in one, larger drop down box. Any advice on whether or not AllWebMenus Pro can handle that?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Andy,

Yes, this is possible. It is called “Mega-Menu” and you can achieve it using the “Full-HTML” feature. You can see a similar example here:

http://www.likno.com/examples.html?example=mega_dropdown_menu1

mega menu html full mode

Note that in order to achieve this, you need to have a single item per submenu, where this item is in HTML format and contains your links etc.
