Dear Patient and Helpful Menu Crew:

As I wrote, I did get the menus back in my website thanks to your help. Then I began thinking how I would like to upgrade the website using my newly-purchased PRO version of  the software. I started changing colors and layout, and of course, the menus.

I originally wanted to have pretty white letters coming out of the blue background between the sections for my menu. I was tempted to try the gallery of menus, however, tried one and then could not delete it. The menu I chose was “Bootstrap Gray”. 

Question 1: How do you delete a pre-fab menu once you apply it?

Question 1.5: If I select apply a pre-fab menu, should I be clicking that box that talks about deleting previous style settings?

I got the menu anchored to the Table, (after failing with TD and Span). The Anchoring put the menu on top of the top of the bottom section. It took me a full day thereafter to get it centered. I ended up using the height-“44” code that I found in your materials (which I read extensively). That centered the menu in the space vertically, but I don’t know why because my editor told me that the actual height of the space was 18 pixels. However, I actually got the menu anchored and CENTERED in the blue space between the sections, and considering this a major achievement of my life, and tried to refrain from trying further to move it or tinker.  However, the spacing of the items in the menu bothered me. I changed “distance between items” and Poof! the centering was gone. Since Poof? I have tinkered with the code and the sizing of the space, and options in AWM, to no avail. I have become a pro, however, with “previewing in browser” and hitting the F8 key.

Question 2: How do you space the distance between items on the pre-fab menu?  I know this must be to-able, because I changed the text size.

Question 3:  Can you give me code to center?

Question 4:  If Sue deletes the pre-fab menu, can she figure out how to configure and anchor the menu on her own?  We shall see.

I hate to be a serial support customer, but I spent all weekend on this before writing.) Smile

Hello Sue,

Answer 1:  When you apply a menu theme and you have saved the project like that, indeed you have lost the previous state of your menu.

                      However, if you go to the following path " C:\Users\{your account}\AppData\Roaming\Likno Software\AllWebMenus\AutoBackup" you will be able to find some auto back ups of your project, so  you will find the previous state. If you cannot find it, let me know so I can re-send you the project I had sent you before.

Answer 1.5: Yes, you need to click on "Yes" in order to proceed with applying the menu theme you have selected. If you click on No nothing will happen.

Answer 2:  You can change the distance between items like in the image below. Choose which menu items you want (Main Group Items, Sub Group Items, Sub Group+ Items) and then set the "Distance Between Items" in a numeric value of your desire.

Answer 3: A code to center in general items in CSS is the property margin: 0 auto; applied to the element you want it to be centered.

                     In AllWebMenus if you need to center the menu according to a page element in your page click on "Menu Positioning" and then set the properties that best fits your needs.

Answer 4: There is no need to delete the pre-fab menu, you only need to choose the correct settings according to the above (menu positioning) in order to have your menu appear in the area you want it.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Thank you!

Hi

Is it possible to close a manually triggered menu, using a button etc

when sticky menu is selected?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

Yes, this is possible. Go to Menu Positioning and select Manually Trigger Menu and copy the code the application gives you according to your settings.

Note that when you have selected the menu to be Sticky, this means that after you click on the element you want to trigger the menu, the menu appears and stays opened until you click somewhere in the page.
Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Kind Regards,

In this post we show how you can position your menu to your WordPress site/blog using AllWebMenus Pro and AllWebMenus WordPress Plugin.

Assuming that you have already installed AllWebMenus WordPress Plugin to your WordPress site/blog, let’s see how you can position your menu.

Step 1: Go to Plugins –> Installed Plugins 

Installed Plugins in WordPress

Step 2: In your Installed Plugins you will AllWebMenus WordPress Menu Plugin, click on Settings.

AllWebMenus WordPress Menu Plugin settings

Step 3: On Menu Positioning Method you have the following choices:

AllWebMenus WordPress menu positioning methods

Custom position: you can choose custom position in cases that you need to position your menu relative to an existing element/image in your page or in case you want it to a specific place.
If you choose custom position make sure that you set the related positioning properties in your AllWebMenus (application).
You need to set your menu positioning relative to an element that already exists in your page or if you set it relative to an element that is not currently in your page, make sure to add it.

Menu positioning relative to an element

Note that you can also leave the default menu positioning in your AllWebMenus (which is relative to Window), so the menu will appear relative to window.

Widget: you can choose the widget menu positioning method in case you want the menu to appear in your themes sidebar. If you choose this method, you don’t need to make any menu positioning changes in AllWebMenus (application) as AllWebMenus is going to take control of this.
This option requires you to go to Appearance –> Widgets

WordPress Widgets

In the Inactive Widgets you will find a widget called AllWebMenus: {your menu name}, Drag this from Inactive Widgets

WordPress AllWebMenus inactive widget

and Drop it where you want it to appear.

AllWebMenus WordPress active widget

Theme Menu Location: In this method you will usually see the “Theme Menu Location: primary…” and in some cases if the theme supports it you may see the “Theme Menu Location: secondary”. These are the predefined menu positions that your theme provides.
In case, you select the Theme Menu Location method you don’t need to change anything according to menu positioning in AllWebMenus, as the application is going to take control of that.

The above is only part of the menu positioning, you need to follow all the steps in order to create a menu for your WordPress site/blog. You can find all the instructions here:
