Update Maximenu to version 8 from version 6 or 7 20 Sep 2014 23:44 #22355

Hi,
I could upgrade the two websites without trouble following the instructions. I use no template and have a fully customized menu, this seems to ease things.
Thank you for adding the new features!
I came across a few things that I perceive as bugs or usability problems in the params plugin on the Maximenu CK Styles tabs:
When editing or creating a menu item, on all three tabs the margins are initialized to 0. I would prefer if they were empty by default. Then the menu items get the default style. As it is now, I have to manually remove the zeroes as to not override my menu margins.
Then there is the problem that the manual removal of the zeroes only works on the "normal state" page. If I remove them on the "active" and "hover" pages, after saving the zeroes are back again, so no effect. I have to replace the values with the actual default ones (e.g. "auto") so my menu items still look as they should. This is quite annoying, as it keeps me from centrally changing styles.
Also there seems to be a bug with the color overrides: If you just enter a color override for active or hover, but do not specify a font size, the color is ignored. I would like to be able to only override the color, but not the size - same usability problem as with the other option.
Also the colors and bold style from my individual settings on hover and active seem to be ignored. Hence my need to override it in the individual items.
Should you want access to a sample site, please contact me. I'm happy to show the issues and help you fix them.

Hi
the zero values issue has been fixed in the latest release, please redownload and test (note that if you have saved with the zero values they will be there and you will have to remove it)

Update Maximenu to version 8 from version 6 or 7 05 Oct 2014 12:49 #22700

Hi,
I could finally download and test the 0-Values issue. The empty fields now can be saved, so I can make the menu work without workarounds.
Still the padding and rounded corners are filled with unwanted defaults (padding with 0, rounded corners with 5) on all relevant tabs (normal, active, hover and submenu!). So whenever I create a new menu item I have to go through all the tabs and remove the 0 and 5, to make the global defaults work (which is what I intend to do in most cases).
Can you please fix that, too? It's quite annoying to have to go through all the values all the time, and I plan a major rework in the menu, so it would be helpful to have that fixed.
Thanks, Andreas

I have developped a test version of the maximenu params component that integrates a Migration tool to remove the 0 values on the margins.
Please contact me per email to test it if anyone need it.

Awe crap.... This has worked out horribly, at least in my case. For some reason I have now lost around 60 menu items that I had prior. The styling is all blown up and it breaks the Params plugin. I have tried going backwards but that hasn't corrected anything at all. Either way I now have days worth of work just trying to recreate all of my menu items without even addressing the styling and as usual they were incredibly complex. Sadly my most current backup is 2 weeks old and I had a very active site. I didn't catch when I did updates that the menu was even on the list which is my fault for autoselecting but this sucks..

I'm not even going to mess with this right now cause I'm already exhausted but what and ending for my day....
crap

PS : reinstalling the previous version should have corrected the situation so I think that there is probably a problem somewhere else...
