Hi Guys

I have AllWebMenus Pro and an older version of Modal Windows.

I want a modal window for a Responsive site that is live at the moment but want to know if I upgrade whether this will work to resize for a responsive site please.

I want a modal to load for my client site on home page arrival  advertising a special offer and link to a page for {URL REMOVED}

Will this work please and how would you recommend I set it up? – if it will work I will upgrade both AWM and MW at the same time in my user account.

Kind regards,
Phil

Dear Phil,

The latest AllWebMenus indeed allows creating responsive menus for your sites. Note that setting a menu as responsive will not shrink the menu automatically! You need to create your own designs (e.g. make the tablet menu version as two-row menu and the phone menu version as a vertical menu) and the menu will automatically display the correct menu based on your settings.

The modal window was always “responsive”, in the sense that it will always stay within the boundaries of the current page.

I hope the above was helpful for you. Let me know if you want more specific details.

Dear Kostas

Thanks for your reply.

AWM

It is great to see your recommendation for tablet menu as two rows and mobile as vertical.

The problem I have had with AWM is knowing how to structure having three designs whereas, as we have discussed before css3menus.com auto-adjust from just one design.

I would like to go back to using AWM, as I am only making responsive sites now; could you just advise please:

1. Whether all or most designs can be in both horizontal and vertical – if not how do we tell?

2. Can you have both from within one project file.

3. Any more revelations of tips on how to set up AWM as responsive from your experience please – that tip above was so useful thanks.

MODAL

You mention that they always stay within the window boundary but there are settings in the project for width and height sizes in pixels.

So a m I wrong in thinking if I set it to 600px wide it will bust an iphone screen that has read the  tag
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">.

If it just resizes to fill the screen then that would be excellent or if not what designs tips would you have for that please?

Dear Phil,

1) All designs can be switched from horizontal to vertical and vice versa. However, in some of them, the graphics have been especially designed for a specific orientation, so you may need to edit a couple of graphics to make the menu look perfect. The only way to tell if a design will look good in a different orientation, is to actually try it and see for yourself (it is only two clicks to do it).

2) A single project file will store all the responsive menu versions (up to four).

3) Hints:

a) First of all, turn your menu into a Responsive Menu

b) You can use these links to quickly clone the menu structure (for example you add a new item in version1 and want the same in the other menu versions)

c) Use this listbox to change from one version to another

responsive menu settings

Note that the way we’ve design this, you can even use a different Theme for each menu version , and each version can have a different menu structure!

Dear Kostas

Thank you very much for those tips, most useful.

At the bottom of my last email I was asking about the responsiveness of the Modal window software I was thinking of updating, could you advise on this too please, here is the bit from my last email:

Dear Phil,

Indeed if you set the Modal Window to 2000px wide, it will always resize to fit within the screen, also leaving a margin of 15px if I am not mistaken.

You can easily try this by resizing the preview window in the application!
