We have released a new version of AllWebMenus Pro: Version 5.3 build #860.
Check out What's New:
- Full support for all Eastern languages.
- Fixed some minor issues which were caused by "bad" global CSS.
- Drupal 7 now fully supported.
- The "Drupal Menu Add-in" now creates a ZIP file when compiling, which you then upload directly to the server (a simpler and easier process than before).
- Several GUI enhancements.
- Fixed an issue where the horizontal menu appeared wider when one of its items had at least one "Has Submenu Image" (IE8+ only).
- Fixed an issue where menu items appeared smaller in Opera, in certain occasions.
- Fixed an issue where sliding groups didn't slide correctly, in certain occasions (IE9 only).
- Fixed an issue with "Cross-frame" implementations, where the submenus incorrectly positioned at Top Left of the frame page.
- Fixed an issue with "Manually Triggered Groups" implementations, where they didn't open if these groups were of the "Sliding" type (Mozilla based browsers only).

When you build a menu in AllWebMenus Pro application, you apply a theme to this (usually the default one).
1. How to apply a built-in Theme in your menu.
The Themes that do not contain images and are text and color based can of course be customized by the application; you just need to edit the <Background Color> property (and perhaps any other property that involves colors) in all the Available Styles of the Style Editor (i.e. Main Group Style, Main Items Style, etc...).
2. How to change the Background Color property.
The Themes that do contain images cannot be customized color-wise within the AllWebMenus Pro. You can however customize the images that the menu is using (you can find these images in the NameOfThemes-assets folder which resides in the Theme Gallery\Vertical or Theme Gallery\Horizontal folder under the installation folder of your AllWebMenus Pro application (i.e. C:\Program Files\AllWebMenus5\Theme Gallery). Open the images with your favorite image editor and change their color, save them (it is recommended to keep backup files of the default Theme Packs of AllWebMenus Pro) and use them in your menus!
Of course you can also create your own images from scratch, according to the needs of your website and use them in the application to create your own menus - even your own Themes. You can find all the appropriate information about how to use your own images in your menu through your AllWebMenus Pro application to Help -> What is... -> The Image Manager.
In addition to the built-in Themes of the program, you can also purchase from the various Theme Packs that we have created. You can have a look at the Theme Packs here: http://www.likno.com/awmthemes.php. You might also be interested in the Templates we have also created and contrary to themes, menu templates are complete .awm projects with special images, features and content that cannot be themed but provide added functionality: http://www.likno.com/awmtemplates.php.
The AllWebMenus Pro applicaton provides you the capability to create fancy menus using various customized images. When you have a menu that uses images, you may encounter the need of restoring these images; images can be temporarily lost from your menu's project and the reasons that can cause this inconsistency may be a lot. For example you may move the project file, but not the folder which contains the images.
To restore the images of your menu using AllWebMenus Pro, you have to perform the following steps:
- Go to the "Menu Editor" of your AllWebMenus Pro application and choose an item from the "Menu Structure" panel.
- In the "Item Properties" panel click on a property that involves images (e.g. Image). The property does not have to actually have an image; it can be [no image].
- Then, click the pointer in order to open the "Select Image" window.
- Click on "Add New Image", and browse your folders to find where the images are stored.
- Select all the images from the folder and import them.
- Click "Yes" in all the warning windows that will appear.
- Finally, click "Cancel" in order for the property you selected to return to its default value. Refresh your menu and the images will be there.
AllWebMenus Pro version 5.1 Build #760 released. Check out what's new in this version:
- New 110 bullets/arrows are added to the Image Gallery. Most of them (down arrows) are created to accommodate the new "Sliding Menu" feature that is under construction (to be released in build 764).
- The images of the menu are now pre-loaded so that they are shown immediately when a submenu appears. Note: All images still need some time to be loaded during the initial load of the web page.
- New sophisticated wizard added for locating the missing images in a project (occuring when the project files are not relocated properly).
- Fixed an issue in Mozilla-based browsers, where a menu was displayed collapsed
the first time that the page was accessed. The bug appeared only in "Server-Side API" related implementations.
- Fixed an issue with the "awmRelativeCorner" parameter that was not included inside the menu.js file as it should (certain cases only).
