Support Case Month: August 2012

Hello Kosta!

A question about tooltip-builder …

As you can see on my website there is a link to a popup window (bottom of site – left “Besucher Seite”).

This PopUp window is a small php-site. inside there a database is asked about the actual visitors counts and the number will be displayed (with some other words …).

Is this possible to manage with your tooltip-builder? so replacing the ugly popup ???

Thanks
Regards,
Michael

Sure! Just create the tooltip you want and add the URL as an “external” page:

tooltip: add url as an external page

Can you tell me if the Modal Window software allows us to create multiple individual popup windows for each of our animals as depicted in the image below? If if does…that would be great!

Thanks

Joe

Hello Joe,

You have multiple ways to do so:

One easy method is to use the "target="Modal_Window_1_single" code on each link, where the "href" will contain a reference to an "id", which will be included in the image file that you want (click the help icon [?] there for more info).

Please make sure that you have selected the “Make certain links/forms in page open in this window” option and read more about it there:

what you want the selected modal window to do

Each image that you want to be displayed should be inside the page, with a unique id for that image.

For example, for this <a> link...

<a href="#picture_ghandi" target="Modal_Window_1_single">Ghandi</a>

...the modal window shows the following image that uses this ID:

<img id="picture_ghandi" src="http://www.loveforanimals.org/images/ghandi.jpg" style="display:none;" />

So, you just place all images in the page, as follows:

<img id="picture_ghandi" src="http://www.loveforanimals.org/images/ghandi.jpg" style="display:none;" />

<img id="picture_elvis" src="http://www.loveforanimals.org/images/elvis.jpg" style="display:none;" />

… (etc.)

…and then use these links to call each image accordingly:

<a href="#picture_ghandi" target="Modal_Window_1_single">Ghandi</a>

<a href="#picture_elvis" target="Modal_Window_1_single">Elvis</a>

Notice the style="display:none;" code in the <img> tags which makes the images "invisible" in the actual page (but visible when the modal window opens to show them).

Initial Email Subject: onload modal produces doubles new organic visits
Support Case Month: October 2012

I have a modal window that opens onload at postcardmania.com. If you go there and don't see it, clear your cookies.

This modal is doubling new organic visits to our homepage, that is, the modal is considered a new organic visit AND the homepage is considered a new organic visit. I need to be able to stop the modal window from counting as a new organic visit.

This is the modal script:
<script type="text/javascript">
   var lwmwLinkedBy="LiknoWebModalWindows [1]",lwmwName="hp-popup",lwmwBN="240";
</script>

<script charset="UTF-8"
        src="/hp_popup2/hp-popup-assets/hp-popup2.js"
        type="text/javascript">
</script>

When I set this up originally, I asked for some advice from you (Linko support) on how to set it up. I was given this script to trigger the popup:

<script language="javascript">
function openMyModal() {
     if (typeof(hppopup2)!="undefined")
          hppopup2({bodySource:"<div externalUrl='hp_popup2/hp1.php?theUrl="+document.location.href+"' style='z-index:4000;'>&nsbp;</div>"});
     else
           setTimeout(openMyModal, 500);
}
</script>

Do you have any ideas about how I can prevent the modal popup from counting as a new organic visit?

Dear Eric,

Not sure how Google works, but it is highly possible that any iframe would count as a new organic visit.

Also you may want to check for any Google code that you have at the “'hp_popup2/hp1.php” page as the problem may be there.

Initial Email From:
User
Initial Email Subject: Different results in IE browsers
Support Case Month: March 2012

I have just started using your software, so I am very new. I used the Web Modal Window builder to create a popup window. I am very pleased with the results. However, I noticed that in Internet Explorer on some computers it has strange effects. On some computers the popup will appear, but then it won't go away; not with the escape key, with clicking the close button or by clicking outside the window. On other computers it opens the popup HTML in a new window. Is there something I am missing? Any help would be appreciated. I haven't noticed any similarities except that the problems exist in Internet Explorer. I have used versions 7, 8 and 9 on Windows XP and 7. Firefox seems to have no problem. Neither does Chrome.

Hello,

It seems that the problem originates from the menu you have. Specifically, this menu uses a very old version of jQuery, which produces JavaScript errors in IE and in turn blocks the correct execution of our own library (which uses a newer version of jQuery).

Please check your page and try changing this:

<script type="text/javascript" 
src="
http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.3.2/jquery.min.js">
</script>
Into this:
<script type="text/javascript" 
src="
http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.6.2/jquery.min.js">
</script>

Let me know if this fixed the problem. Also note that in IE you may need to delete the

“Temporary Internet Files” before you see the changes.

Regards,

Kostas

1. First, what is a "Custom Variable"?

A custom variable is a javascript variable whose value you can update in your web page (through javascript) in order to alter the menu properties where they are used, based on your conditions or preferences.

The syntax of a custom variable is (whichever you prefer):

     <awm:myvar>

OR

<awm:myvar/>

 

Example:

image

The applicable properties where a custom variable can be used are:

ITEM PROPERTIES:

Text

Link

Status Bar Text

Tooltip

GROUP PROPERTIES:

Header Text

Header Tooltip

Footer Text

Footer Tooltip

If you click on the "Compile Properties" toolbar button and then the "Custom Variables" option you will see any custom variables detected to be "in use" by your project (read more about this functionality in the AllWebMenus Help section there).

2. OK, so how can I use "Custom Variables" to show the same single menu with differentiated values, when this menu is triggered as a "popup" by different page elements?

Read below how you can show the same single menu on different page elements, using different "Link" values on its items per element.

Let's assume that you have several images on your page that display different DVD movie posters.

Each of these images shows the same menu when clicking on it, offering 3 actions (menu items) for the particular DVD that opens it ("view it", "purchase it", "rate it", etc.):

image

Now, each item of that menu links to a page related to its action (e.g. the "Purchase DVD" item links to the "purchase.php" page, etc.). In order for the linked page to know which DVD opens it, there is also a parameter at the end of the URL (e.g. "?dvd_id=13").

For example, these are the menu links when "Item 13" (DVD 13) triggers the menu:

image

But how can you use a different link value on the same menu, depending on which image (page element) triggers its appearance?

This is how:

1. In AllWebMenus, use a custom variable at the final part of each item's "Link" property (instead of a "hard coded" value):

image


2.
In your page, first specify the value of this custom variable (with javascript) and then manually trigger the appearance of the menu (also with javascript):

<img src="movie-poster-13.jpg" onclick="custom_dvd_id=13;awmShowGroup('menu-gr0',0,3,0,0,this);">

For each different page element (DVD image) use a different value prior to calling the same menu. For example:

<img src="movie-poster-14.jpg" onclick="custom_dvd_id=14;awmShowGroup('menu-gr0',0,3,0,0,this);">

<img src="movie-poster-15.jpg" onclick="custom_dvd_id=15;awmShowGroup('menu-gr0',0,3,0,0,this);">

<img src="movie-poster-16.jpg" onclick="custom_dvd_id=16;awmShowGroup('menu-gr0',0,3,0,0,this);">

In that way, the menu links eventually use a different value in their URL parameters depending on which page element (DVD image) opens it.

For more information on how to manually trigger a menu (on demand, as a "popup menu") please read the AllWebMenus Help topic of the "Manually trigger Main Menu or any Group on user action" positioning method.
