Hi Aris
I'm developing a navigation bar for another person and I can't figure out how to make it contract - it winds up way too wide like this

Dear Phil,

The main problem is that all your items are set to have the same size. This is caused by the “Uniform Items” property. Please uncheck this in order to resolve the problem:

menu type horizontal, uniform items property

hello Aris and Kostas
I've been using your program for a while and love it. I have a question: If I create a web site for someone else and use Allwebmenus to make the navigation bar - and then transfer the site to that other person would they have to have their own Allwebmenus program installed on their hard drive to make any changes?

Phil

Hello Phil,

This is true, if you hand over the project to the other person and her is responsible of updating the menus then he should also have an AllWebMenus license installed on his PC.

Support Case Month: June 2012

Greetings,
I cant seem to find an answer to my question elsewhere, so, I am designing a website that is based on percentage and not pixels, it is set to be 76% of window size.  I am placing the menu at the top, within a table, centered. However, it will not stay within the table and hangs over the page on either side.
I had to insert some html so that the menu would appear over the flash movie, but this "hangover" is on every page, not just the one with the flash.
I know the menu would have to adjust itself along with the webpage according to browser specs, I also know the menu actually appears "above" the page, and is not part of the page. So, that said. I am at a loss as to what to do.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

It seems that the menu works fine as long as the browser window is wide enough.

From this I gather that you have correctly set the “menubar” settings. However you also have significant paddings in your menu that do not allow it to become smaller than a given width.

Please check the following properties and change both the padding and margin to 0:

menu padding and text margin

Thank you for your quick reply. I changed the padding settings to 0 as you suggested and when I view the pages "live" within Adobe Dreamweaver everything looks perfect!  The menu is perfectly aligned on all pages.  But once they are uploaded to the server the pages do not appear the same. The menu sits above the table. I tried changing the vertical align to top, bottom, middle, but nothing changes. I have the valign set at default now. I uploaded all the awmdata files as well as the menu.js and the pages themselves, still once it is online, it will not line up. I am at a loss.
Thank you,
Michele

Dear Michele,

Is your menu still set as a menubar? Can you export and send me your menu project so that I can further research this?

Hello Kostas,
As requested, I have attached the zipped file.
I should tell you that this menu is from one of the pre-made templates. I have made many menus using this program, but never one this fancy. I had changed the base color, but went back to the original. It was never saved as a menubar.
I have another machine with a 15" screen. That one shows the menu sitting just above the table where it should be nested. In 17" everything is fine. My client wants a "flashy" navigation bar and I am not great at doing that from scratch so I thought this would be the answer.
Thanks for your assistance.
Michele

Hello,

I have made some minor changes to your menu to make it look better.

1) added a minimum width to the main menu group

2) removed the “distance between items” that created something like a border

3) added a normal border so that it is also visible before the first and after the last item.

To complete the changes, you can also change the following in your page, from:

To:

style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747">

Thank you so much. I will try this.  Not so sure about the border before and after. It took me forever to figure out how to get rid of that. LOL   I will see if I can figure it out again. :-) 
I'll let you know how I made out.
Thank you again and again.

Hello Kostas,
Oh dear! It is not perfect on my screen here at work. It looked good from home, but not here. It is "hanging" again. Just a tiny bit on each side, but enough to be noticeable. It's fine on the index page, but the others, not so much. All the pages are set at 75% so I don't know why it would be different on all but the index page. I changed the awm code to below, as you so graciously provided and it was great, until I had to add a link.

<td height="32" style="background-image: url(awmdata/menu/menuItem-tile.jpg);" bgcolor="#474747"><div align="center" id="awmAnchor-menu"></div></td>

Also, last night I tried to update my version of AllWebMenus PRO with latest version. But when I tried to download the program from your primary download location, I kept getting a message saying windows couldn't locate something or other. I was so tired at that point, I didn't attempt to try it again. I will try it again tonight and let you know what the error message is saying.
I bet you just wish I would go away! LOL
Michele

Are you referring to this?

menu in website

I had to zoom my browser in order to notice that the menu is a pixel or two off on the right side!

I guess this is because after you added the new item the menu became just a bit too big. Two things can help resolve this issue:

1) decrease the item padding (if there is any):

2) make sure that the “Uniform Items” property is NOT checked:

uncheck uniform items property

Greetings,
Yes, I worked it out. I followed your directions and it works great now. Thank you again.
Now I have to figure out why I cant download the newest version of AllWeb. I didn't try it last night, I was too tired.  Will try it tonight.
Thank you, Kostas.

Support Case Month: December 2012

Hello

i have a menu on the site made with awm software.

it runs well on all browsers, except for IE, if the compatibility view button is clicked, it disappears from the site.

if the button is unclicked it reappears.

what is the workaround, it is frustrating, cause users click sometimes on the button by mistake and the navigation bar menu disappears !

awaiting feedback

thank you

Hello,

This issue is caused because your Linking Code is not exactly after the <body> as it should be.

If you can, please move the Linking Code directly after the <body> in order to fix the problem. If this is not possible, then please try selecting the following option in the Project Properties:

menu linking code within tags
