Knowledge Base support case for AllWebMenus, abstracted and stripped of all user’s private info.
Initial Email From: Marilyn
Initial Email Subject: Menu scaling
Support Case Month: November 2012
I have searched and can not find an answer to why this problem is happening.
I just need to know if this is a bug or if it is even possible. If it is possible I have no problem paying for support to get the answer.
I have a AWM in a WordPress site. When I scale the browser window smaller the menu does not scale with it.
I read on your blog that this is just how it works....but I find it hard to believe that you would think anyone would want to use a menu that wont scale with the site. Especially now with all the ipad and smartphone out there. If this is true...I just wasted money updating my software because I will just use the menu from wordpress. I would look so unprofessional using this great looking menu that wont scale.
I am hoping you will tell me that it is possible...if so I will renew my support plan...if not....you have lost a long time user and I wish I wouldn't have wasted money I really don't have to throw away.

When you say “scaling the browser” do you mean that you resize the browser window? If so, then what you are really after is a “responsive menu”.
This is a relatively new concept that was introduced based on the fact that most tablets have a smaller screen.
AllWebMenus does not currently support responsive menus, but we are already working on it and it is going to be the next big addition in less than 3 weeks. With this feature you will be able to design a number of different menus and have each one display depending on the browser size. Do you want me to add you in the notify list for when this feature is available?

- Create cross-browser jQuery scrollers to display content (items) that scroll horizontally or vertically when visitors click on (or mouse over) special navigation arrows, bars, and more.
- ... OR make the scroller behave as a "SlideShow": its items sliding (scrolling) automatically, one at a time, at specified duration and direction, with looping or not, pause on "mouse over" and more.

- Use multiple scrollers on the same page (with the same or different styling).

- Add dynamic content (database-driven or programmable) to your scrollers.
- Use a tooltip on every scroller item (optionally), with plenty of styling options and dynamic HTML content.
- Use a variety of transition behaviors (Continuous, Step by Item, Step by Page) and transition effects (Instantly, Fade, Slide), etc.
