Initial Email Subject: Where is the add item?
Support Case Month: October 2013

I have just upgraded to latest AllWebMenus and could have sworn that on my older version there was an "Add Item" (to add a menu item) in the top tool bar.

Has this gone or am I missing something?

All I have is "Cut item", Copy Item", "Paste Group" and Paste Values".

Hello Barry,

First, thank you for upgrading your software license.

The Top Toolbar has these options:

Menu Edit options

You can find Add Item and all the other option related to menu structure here:

Specifically the Add Item is the "Cross" image in which you can click to see the 3 available options.

Add menu item

Let me know if you need more assistance.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Using an asp.net form in a mega menu
Support Case Month: July 2013

Hi Kostas

I have a new support request, but linked to this previous one (below).

I would like to create dynamic mega menus using a UL/LI structure generated by ASP.

Our menu format uses 5 columns created by a div structure. The attached txt file shows the full html version which works with AWM but is not dynamic. 

We can replace the existing links with UL/LI structures, but I expect that to achieve a controlled 5 column layout we would need 5 separate UL/LI structures (one per div). 

Is this going to work?!

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
John

Hello John,

If you need to use 5 DIVs then the answer is yes, you would need 5 different menus which is not the best solution.

Why don't you use one div that holds the whole ul/li structure for your menu?

Check the AllWebMenus sample ul/li structure to get an idea how the menu is populated in ul/li.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: Help with AWM (CSS)
Support Case Month: June 2013

I’m trying to get the CSS menu to populate to the page but I’m at a COMPLETE loss of understanding of how to do so with the CSS based menu. The testing site is at {URL REMOVED} (only working on the home/index page as I try to understand this)

The index.html page is based on a Dreamweaver template. (I use DW CS5.5)

I’m having several issues…

The menu was compiled in AWM 5.3 Build 910

Possibly if this issue is resolved the other issues regarding positions etc will be taken care of as I believe AWM is built to do all the positioning and code insertion automatically.

Thx for the help,
Michael

Hello Michael,

We are here to help, I saw your page and realized that you did not add the "UL/LI" elements that represent your menu.

See the image below, where to find these:

UL LI CSS menu population code

This is not related to the Dreamweaver Extension, do not use it at all. Just have the menu-linking code there (which I see that you did add) and the UL/LI section. Also check if everything id OK with the "Positioning" of the menu here:

Thank you!

Thank you.

OK, I did what I think you’re telling me (went to “Project Properties > Populate menu inside your page… > <ul><li> structure and copied the code there and then entered the code on the template relative to the element <div id="menu-anchor"> (from the “Menu Positioning”)

Take a look at the home now. Clearly this isn’t what I’m trying to do. I would like the menu to populate horizontally (like at {URL REMOVED}) and I want the menu to behave in the manner the javascript menu does, i.e. with the hover over, etc. characteristics.

I am very confused with this and am not following what I should be doing. Yes, I know it would probably be easier (maybe not?) with the js menu but the js menu will not work (as I understand it) when the site is viewed on an iPad.

Suggestions?

Michael

Hello Michael,

I checked your files and I see that the problem is with the width and height of the menu items.

In CSS menu, the property works "as exactly" the width and height you specify and not as "at least". I noticed that you have set it as in the image below:

menu items width and height

Please correct these sizes in all your menu items (main, sub items and sub items+) to width/height values that perfects fit your menu.

Note that in CSS menu the width and height values are the same for all items. In this case, if you need a specific width/height for some menu items you need to do that with inline style.

In your Dreamweaver template go to the menu structure and set these properties in <li> and <a> tags. See image below:

width and height in menu structure

Let me know if you need further assistance.

Support Case Month: November 2013

Hello Aggelos,

See the attached zip for my exported project file.

I have created it as a CSS menu. Am using the suggested UL/LI structure in my web page. 

The menu structure works fine in the linked web page. But when I add a image to the “Home Place” menu item in AllWebMenus PRO, it does not do anything with it ... nothing appears in any code ? 

Regards, Dave

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello David,

In order to have the Home icon appear, you need to manually add it as it is a CSS version of the menu.

So, your structure will look like this;

CSS menu structure code

You need to add in

 <li><img src="your image path" /><a href="default.html">Home Place</a></li>

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!

Initial Email Subject: responsive menu
Support Case Month: August 2013

is there a way to make it slide of and on the page after it's made responsive?

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello Ellen,

You could create a main menu item (an arrow for example) that on click will show the menu (the main menu items will move one level down so will become submenu items). In this way and with the proper styling you will achieve what you want.

Check the version 4 of this example menu http://www.likno.com/examples/responsive-menu-above-green-line-resize-page.html. It's kind of similar. you will notice the menu structure on version 1 for example and then see the menu structure on version 4 to understand what i am saying.

Let me know if you need more information.

Thank you!
