Email Subject: Using an asp.net form in a megamenu
Support Case Month: May 2013

Is there a way to include an asp.net form within a menu subgroup? We have a conventional html-based megamenu design, to which I would like to add asp.net controls to display item prices and urls loaded from a datasource.

Dear John,

This is not impossible, but it may be tricky and in any case it requires custom code.

It is not possible to include server-side code (ASP) into client-side code (JS), but it is possible to include it in the HTML of your page.

Hence I believe the best approach is to use an in-page UL/LI structure for populating your menu and include the ASP there.

Note that AllWebMenus can give you a sample code of the UL/LI you need to have in your page, based on your existing menu:

clip_image001

clip_image002

clip_image003

That was fast, Kostas! 

I appreciate your answer, but I don't believe it answers my question. 🙂

We already have a megamenu with subgroup items that are in HTML.  My question is whether we can use asp.net controls within the subgroup's HTML. I tried it, but it didn't seem to want to work.

Does that explain my problem more clearly?

I hope all's well with you.

Regards

John

Dear John,

Sorry for the misunderstanding, I will try to explain this further.

I understand that you typed your HTML code within AllWebMenus, right? This means that the HTML code is included in the compile JavaScript file which you then upload online.

The problem is that any code you add in a JavaScript file, will not be processed by the server, hence any server-side code you add (such as the ASP include code) will appear as plain HTML or text inside your menu and will not be processed by the server.

If on the other hand you put your population code in your HTML page, then (if you also have this configured on your server, which is very likely) this page will be first processed by the server for server-side code and it will then be served to the client. This way the server-side code will work.

The downside of using UL/LI code to populate your menus is that you need to have this code in each of your pages, however this is not much of a problem as you can add this code in yet another ASP include file, or (if you have one) in your template file.

I hope this was more clear than my previous answer. Let me know if you need more help.

Initial Email Subject: 404 error
Support Case Month: June 2012

Hello Guys:
Knowing it's probably me, at 66 it seems difficult to grasp all of this.
Here is my problem: On our main site if you mouse over on the 4th button down you will get a 3 item SUB group, all works well. BUT if you click on the button that opens the sub-group (Parking Decals) it will generate a 404 error. Your requested file or folder URL, /sid:1051 cannot be found at the specified location.
This structure is imported from Front Page.
Thank you for any help you provide with this.
Bill

Dear Bill,

I checked your site and noticed that this is true for all menu items that have a submenu. It is likely that this is due to some FrontPage incompatibility.

Do you have actual pages that should be shown when clicking on a parent item? or do you want the parent items to simply not have links?

Also do you believe you could send us a zipped version of your FrontPage project so that we can try to reproduce the problem?

Hello Kostas:

> It is likely that this is due to some FrontPage incompatibility.

PLEASE don’t forget it could be something I did!  🙂

> do you want the parent items to simply not have links?

NO links for the parent buttons, just a place holder to open and pick from the sub. (this could be the problem)

> Also do you believe you could send us a zipped version of your FrontPage project so that we can try to reproduce the problem?

Do you mean the  generated menu files or the complete site, the site is 12+ megs.

Just to make sure I am setting FP up correctly let me attach a partial view of the FH Navigation structure.  (see attached)

I used a custom link bar where ever I needed a sub. I am not sure if this is correct, It’s the only way I could make this work!

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

I see that your parent links are not linked to standard pages (as is usually the case):

parent links not linked to standard pages

What is this link icon I see there? Are these HTML pages?

Also, if possible, please check the folder where you store your website.

If you have admin rights, you should be able to see a hidden folder named “_vti_pvt” and within this you should see a file named “structure.cnf”.

Please send me this file so that I can forward it to our developers.

The guy who did all of the for 13 years moved out of state the first of the year to care for his parents. Sad smile

The structure.cnf file is attached.

This weekend I must have changed/compiled this menu 10 to 12 times with NO problem.

Just now I went in there to do a screen capture and got a invalid procedure for the first time in over a week? (Attached)

I also attaches a screen capture Partial from inside allwebmenu.

> What is this link icon I see there? Are these HTML pages?

The places you have circled are the htm parent buttons that generate the error when you click.

Thanks again
Bill

Bob
Initial Email Subject: Opening menu in specific location
Support Case Month: July 2012

I had asked this question in the past and cannot find the answer.  I know now that I can apply a style to just a specific SubGroup.  I know I was able to open a SubGroup in a specific location but I cannot find where I did it in the past.  I want to open the specific SubMenu in a Specific Location so that it does not open out so far to the left.  If you can tell me where to find this setting again I would greatly appreciate.

Bob

Hello Bob,

You just choose that specific subgroup in Menu Editor, then select "All Values" and customize its "Appears" properties accordingly:

subemenu specific properties

OK,  I will give that another look.  I know I had done it before but was not able at that time to figure out how to apply the setting to a specific subgroup instead of all of them.  The only difference was this, and I am not sure if this will have any bearing on the setting or where I set it up.  I have a subgroup that has a Range of Sizes (1500-1999, 2000-2499,2500-2999, etc).  When I click on one of these subgroups, I would like it to disappear and the SubGroup of the Range Choice to open up in the same location.  My reason for this is so that the menu doesn’t extend so far out into the page.  Do I still use the setting below, or do I set that up somewhere else??

Thanks again for your help.

Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bob,

There is no way to make the parent group disappear, however you can use the “Appears – Where” as well as the “Appears – Aligned with” properties to make a submenu open directly over the parent group. This will only work in Horizontal or Vertical menus – not on Sliding menus.

Thanks for your help.  That is where the problem is coming in.  I knew I was able to do this before I just couldn’t remember where the setting was that I used.   Now I know why…it cannot be a sliding menu.

Thanks again for your help.

Initial Email Subject: Links do not from Subgroup (Main Item)
Support Case Month: October 2012

Greetings,

Since quiet some time I use web menu and I am happy with it.

I use it with vertical submenus. What I noticed is that the links I have in the main item of the Submenu does not open, only the menu it self opens. Any hint? Please note the screen shot indication the link which is only an example.., links stored on other main subgroup items do also not open, only the links in the submenu items.

http://fuchs-online.com/overlandmail

Testing the link works.

I noted my support plan is expired; however, I never used the support in the past, so maybe you can look into the issue...

Kind regards

Rainer

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Rainer,

For sliding menus, there is a specific feature that stops the links of "parent" items from working. This was done because if the links work then there is no way to open the submenu without changing the page. You can change this behavior here:

ignore link value of parent menu item

Dear Kostas

In this site

http://www.mange-mon-amour.be

There is a vertical menu with subgroup made with “server side api”

Is it possible that the menu appears like in the below picture (subgroup always visible)

veritcal menu

Dear Roland,

This is what I see:

vertical menu, not sliding menu

It seems that you set the submenus to be “vertical” and not “sliding”.

Having said this, you can keep it open by selecting the following option:

show menu settings

Yes I forgot to re upload the correct js

Now it is done but on page load, the menu is not open

The menu must be opened immediately

Dear Roland,

I am a bit confused again…

This is what I now see in your page:

vertical menu with submenu

This menu does not have the same items/submenus as the one you originally had or the one in your screenshot (the “par theme” and “par expert” groups are missing).

However, the current menu does appear open in the “current page”. Is this not what you wanted?

Dear Kostas

What you see now is correct (corrected since last mail)

I just want if possible, that it appears opened without clicking on “articles” (like on your screenshot)

Cordialement
Roland

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

 

Dear Roland,

I am afraid you cannot just “show the menu open”. The way this works is that you can show the “current page” as “selected” and this will also show it parent groups opened.

So if you want the submenu to appear open, you must have an item in it appearing as selected.
