Support Case Month: July 2012

I had asked this question in the past and cannot find the answer.  I know now that I can apply a style to just a specific SubGroup.  I know I was able to open a SubGroup in a specific location but I cannot find where I did it in the past.  I want to open the specific SubMenu in a Specific Location so that it does not open out so far to the left.  If you can tell me where to find this setting again I would greatly appreciate.

Hello Bob,

You just choose that specific subgroup in Menu Editor, then select "All Values" and customize its "Appears" properties accordingly:

OK,  I will give that another look.  I know I had done it before but was not able at that time to figure out how to apply the setting to a specific subgroup instead of all of them.  The only difference was this, and I am not sure if this will have any bearing on the setting or where I set it up.  I have a subgroup that has a Range of Sizes (1500-1999, 2000-2499,2500-2999, etc).  When I click on one of these subgroups, I would like it to disappear and the SubGroup of the Range Choice to open up in the same location.  My reason for this is so that the menu doesn’t extend so far out into the page.  Do I still use the setting below, or do I set that up somewhere else??

Thanks again for your help.

Bob

Dear Bob,

There is no way to make the parent group disappear, however you can use the “Appears – Where” as well as the “Appears – Aligned with” properties to make a submenu open directly over the parent group. This will only work in Horizontal or Vertical menus – not on Sliding menus.

Thanks for your help.  That is where the problem is coming in.  I knew I was able to do this before I just couldn’t remember where the setting was that I used.   Now I know why…it cannot be a sliding menu.

Thanks again for your help.

Bob

Initial Email Subject: font color of submenus not changing
Support Case Month: October 2012

I currently have submenus set at white #FFFFFF

This shows in menu editor for each subpage and in style editor as well.

I have refreshed multiple times. Other changes get made but the font color still shows black for submenus.

What else can I do to change the color to white?

Hello Jen,

This is what I see online:

I am not sure what you want to be white and what you want to be black and what properties you have inside your AllWebMenus project.

Can you please send me any screenshot with what you want to do?

Also, please export and send me your project file, so that we can have a better look.

This is what you should do to export your project into a ZIP file and then email this ZIP to us.

Dear Jen,

It seems that the files are not correctly uploaded online! The menu you see in your page is not the Likno menu.

If you are using the WordPress plugin, please make sure that you correctly uploaded your compiled zip file.

Support Case Month: June 2012

My question is about AWM.  I know I can center a menu on it's parent.  Due to length, there may be some I want to center and some I want to open from the bottom up.  But I also know I ran into a problem before because I can only have a limited amount of styles.  Is there anything I can do about this?  Also can I created another level of styles?  Some of my Menus go little deeper than any of your examples show.  Is this possible?

Thanks,

Bob

Dear Bob,

I am afraid that you cannot create more styles in the Style Editor.

Still this should not be too much of a problem, as you can easily customize any submenu:

submenu properties

Once you style your submenu, you can also easily Copy & Paste all the customizations to other submenus:

copy paste values to submenus

When I change a value in SubMenuGroups Style+, doesn’t it apply that value to all SubMenus that use SubMenuGroups Style+.  The values are held within the Groups Style right?  I don’t see where I can tell it I only want to change one submenu and not all of them.  I did see this option in Modal Windows but not sure where it is in AWM.

Can you please advise?

Bob

Hello again,

If you change a style in the Style Editor, then this will apply to all items that use this style.

If you change the specific Item’s customized style values in the Menu Editor, then the changes will apply to this specific item only.

Please see the screenshot more carefully if you are still not clear on where you need to change the style.

So if I want to make a change to only one SubMenu Group, then I would select Custom Values instead of All Values???

Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bob,

When you want to change a single item, you need to perform the change in the Menu Editor, on that specific item.

While on that item, the “All Values” will display all values you can customize, and the “Custom Values” will only display those which already have custom values.

A lot of customers that are using the Sliding Menus add-in of AllWebMenus Pro, define their DHTML menus in such a way where the menu system can remember their expanded/collapsed state, when browsing through different pages. For example, when they expand a menu's item, the expanded menu keeps this state after navigating to a different page.

The Sliding Menus add-in of AllWebMenus Pro can easily implement this functionality. You just have to go to the "Style Editor" of your DHTML menu maker and choose the "Sub Groups Style" (or in the "Sub Groups Style+" if you want this functionality to be applied in the menu items that belong to a level greater than two) from the "Available Styles". Afterwards, you have to click on the "Type" property and check the "Remember the menu state..." option as shown in the image below:

If you want this setting not to be applied globally (i.e. you want your menu system to remember the expanded/collapsed state for some of your menu items and not for all), you must use the "Menu Editor" and not the "Style Editor". Then you have to choose each item you want to have this behavior, click on the "All Values" button and define its "Type" property as shown above.
