I know it must be one of my settings, but can you tell me what I need to change at www.webs2impress.com/troy7/contracts/prime.html so that when I load the page, those submenus do not automatically display.  I DO  have it set to keep track of the url and highlight that.  Is that what is affecting it?

Thanks in advance.

Anna

Dear Anna,

Yes, the “highlight” is what is opening your submenus whenever the page loads. There is a special sub-choice to control this if you want the highlight with the submenus closed:

highlight submenu

Regarding the copying from one menu to another, currently this is only possible if you “Import” the whole second menu and then cut-out the parts you do not want.

As always, thank you so much.  As to the copying from one menu to another, I wouldn't be able to import and then delete; it would destroy what I have.  Maybe a feature to add to a future wishlist?

Anna

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Anna,

Why would it destroy what you have? The import would add everything under a single item, so it should be very easy to add a new item, import the second menu into that item, copy-paste what you want and then remove the item altogether.

In any case, we plan to release a new version (most likely within October) which will allow you to load multiple projects in the same AllWebMenus instance, so this will resolve the copy-paste issue too.

(your “wish” is already being developed for the past two weeks or so…)

(I own allwebmenus) Is there a way to close the menu on an iPad by clicking on the top level menu item? Do you have any unique iPad features? Thanks!

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello,

It depends on the type of menu you are using. For example if you have a sliding menu whose submenus open with a click, then you can also close the submenus by clicking on the parent item (provided of course that the parent item does not have a link - in that case it would just follow the link).

Note also that some of the iPad features were implemented in recent releases, so if you have an older version you may not have these features.

If you need a more specific answer, please tell me exactly what your use-case is (what the menu is like etc.) and which version of AllWebMenus you have.

My question is about AWM.  I know I can center a menu on it's parent.  Due to length, there may be some I want to center and some I want to open from the bottom up.  But I also know I ran into a problem before because I can only have a limited amount of styles.  Is there anything I can do about this?  Also can I created another level of styles?  Some of my Menus go little deeper than any of your examples show.  Is this possible?

Thanks,

Bob

Dear Bob,

I am afraid that you cannot create more styles in the Style Editor.

Still this should not be too much of a problem, as you can easily customize any submenu:

submenu properties

Once you style your submenu, you can also easily Copy & Paste all the customizations to other submenus:

When I change a value in SubMenuGroups Style+, doesn’t it apply that value to all SubMenus that use SubMenuGroups Style+.  The values are held within the Groups Style right?  I don’t see where I can tell it I only want to change one submenu and not all of them.  I did see this option in Modal Windows but not sure where it is in AWM.

Can you please advise?

Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Hello again,

If you change a style in the Style Editor, then this will apply to all items that use this style.

If you change the specific Item’s customized style values in the Menu Editor, then the changes will apply to this specific item only.

Please see the screenshot more carefully if you are still not clear on where you need to change the style.

So if I want to make a change to only one SubMenu Group, then I would select Custom Values instead of All Values???

Bob

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Bob,

When you want to change a single item, you need to perform the change in the Menu Editor, on that specific item.

While on that item, the “All Values” will display all values you can customize, and the “Custom Values” will only display those which already have custom values.

Hi Kostas,

I have one last request. I just need to space out the main menu options on top. What would you suggest to be the best way to do this?

Thanks
Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Actually I checked your menu again and I see that it is pretty wide already! It is so wide (although transparent) that it creates a horizontal scrollbar to your site:

menu is so wide that creates horizontal scrollbar

I assume that this happens because you set it to “Menubar” (so it takes the width of the page):

menu is set to menubar

My suggestion is that you remove the “Menubar” setting, and instead just give it the size you want using the “minimum width”:

minimum width of menu

Also, a final suggestion regarding your Positioning. First, find the following code in your page (where the Positioning Anchor is contained):

<td width=200 valign="middle">

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"><span id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>&nbsp;</span></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

And change it into this:

<td width=200 valign="middle" id='awmAnchor-conestmenu'>

<center><a href="/Products.asp?t=Products" class="redlink">&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <img src="/demo/dotb.gif" border="0"><font face="arial" size="1" color="black"></a><b>PRODUCTS</b> &nbsp; &nbsp;</center></td>

So that the menu is attached to the <td>. Then go to the AllWebMenus Positioning and do something like this:

menu positioning settings

Of course you can adjust the offsets accordingly…

Good idea. I’ll see what it does. Also, why is the dropdown menu skewing off to the left? Is there any way to center it under the group choices?

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Check these three properties for the submenu.

Is there any way that I can make the dropdown menus more responsive on the mouse over? There are times when it takes a few passes over the menu choice before the drop down appears. We can’t afford to have our customers play mouse games to access any menu features.

Thanks
Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

I see that your submenus disappear too quickly and sometimes you have to be quick to move the mouse over them.

To fix this you need to put some delay on the “Disappears How” feature, and maybe also bring the submenus closer to the main menu items (they have a couple of pixels empty space between them.

Thanks. What would I change to bring the submenus closer?

Cary

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear Cary,

Try “appears where” (of which I sent a screenshot two mails ago).

Note: I strongly recommend that you take some time to skim through the different application properties.

This way you will have a general idea of what you can do and where to find it.

Hello,

can I use your product to mimick the exact same look of my current vertical navigation menu (exact meaning no borders, retain color, font, etc). See below – is it possible to do this in Likno? The Company and Services selections should produce a simple sliding submenu when moused-over; the other selections should simply click and jump to a new page.

vertical navigation menu

Thanks,

-David

Reply From: Likno Customer Support

Dear David,

Yes, this seems like a pretty easy menu to recreate…

You will find all the related properties in the Style Editor:

Menu Style: Background Color, Border, Shadow

style: Text Font / Size / Decoration / Color, Foreground Image

Note that there are three “group” styles and three “item” styles, representing the main menu, submenu and deeper submenus of your menu.

Also, you can add the little square image on the left of the text using the “Foreground Image” property. In general, I guess you just need to play around with AllWebMenus a bit in order to find out all the possibilities.
