Hi I was wondering if there is a way to create just one menu for joomla, rather that create a menu for each tab. We have been having some server issues (that are getting fixed) and noticed the performance of sites with your joomla menus that are a different tabs are the slowest.

So just wondering if it is possible now to create just one menu for all my tabs as it was not when I first purchased your software.

This site is a joomla site and it is using one static menu that I update using your software.

{URL REMOVED}

And this site has multiple menus so the client can update their menus through joomla

Hello,

I am afraid I do not fully understand what the problem is. What do you mean by "different tabs"?

I checked your page and I do not see anything resembling tabs there...It is also not very clear when you say "is it possible now to create just one menu for all my tabs...". I even checked our past correspondence but I did not find anything about tabs.

Can you please clarify your question further?

Hey Guys, thanks, I could force the hand but auto should have worked.

There was also an issue with the Positioning Relative To An Element Or Image which seam to be corrected, however this really was not a big deal just move the image where you want it with css.

I have run into another issue with the mixed mode(I have looked for documentation on your web site) The problem is when it is compiling in mixed mode it is not attaching the dynamic menu to the correct header. I have attached a screenshot to show the desired structure of the menu so the joomla menu item can be added dynamically by the administrator.

If you go to

{URL REMOVED} you will see Sub Menu 1 and Sub Menu 2

But all the joomla menu is attached to Sub Menu 2.

The desired structure would be

Sub Menu 1 (Created With AllWebMenus) - With Sub Menu 1 (Joomla Generated)

Sub Menu 2 (Created With AllWebMenus) - With Sub Menu 2 (Joomla Generated)

If you could point me in the direction on how to solve this issue that would be great. Even if I have to create multiple menus that would be a satisfactory solution.

I do have a couple more questions but will send that in another email so not to get thing mixed up

Thanks
Mike

Dear Mike,

I am not sure I fully understand what you want to do.

Do you want some Joomla items to go under one submenu and some to go under another? If so, then you will indeed need separate menus, as all the "Dynamic" items have to be under a single menu item.

It would help me if you can show me what would be the structure of the FULL menu, having noted which items will come from Joomla and which will be static. For example:

(in the following structure the green items are dynamic)

Home
Pages
Page1
Page2
Page3

Hi Kostas, so I have tried adding in multiple menus and what it does is when you upload and install a new menu it deletes the existing one

Is there a way to have multiple menus with out deleting any?

Thanks

Mike

Dear Mike,

You can have as many menus as you want in a page. The only requirement is that the menus have different compile names in the Project Properties:

Hi,

Please see the following email sent May 16/2011. Is there now anyway to make all the single menus within the navigation bar as one complete navigation menu with the flyouts and have it updatable through Joomla?

Thank you

Mike

Dear Mike,

The only way to do this is if your menu is fully populated in Joomla. You cannot do this if you want extra items defined in AllWebMenus or if you want each main menu item to have customized styling (e.g. with different background).

If on the other hand you create a Joomla menu with the full structure your menu should have, and if your menu only uses the Style Editor values for its appearance (with no customizations under the Menu Editor) then this will work fine and you can have everything in a single menu.
