One way around this would be to have the image filename appear as the fourth breadcrumb and not appear as a caption under the image.

If the Title field is empty, the filename will show up by default. You can also put the file name in the Title field of all images.
Then remove the filename token from the Caption field under Photo Presentation

After making any changes to metadata, be sure to republish the images. (use the Push Metadata feature so that you don't have to republish the images themselves)

Since the site with three breadcrumbs was built before the other one, could it be that it's using an older plugin?
If so, I would be inclined to revert to this older plugin with the site that has four breadcrumbs, unless there is another means to keep those breadcrumbs to three.
But isn't just one plugin used for all TTG Backlight websites?  The "newer" installed plugin should produce four breadcrumbs on all the sites?

This is why I asked (above) if both sites are using the latest version of Backlight. Go to the Backlight Modules page and check. Update if an update is available.

Thumbnail problem solved using a combination of absolute URL and images in the album folder. It seems that the absolute URL cannot be in any folder under the the domain ( Referencing such a location gives a page not found error.

strange. it works for me. I have images in a folder named "img" in the root of my test site.

in my write in button I use: data-thumbnail="/img/image-name.jpg"

see this test page:

2 - I entered text into the "External Text box for "Terms and conditions" but only the default "Lorum ipsum..." text shows.

this looks like it could be a bug for Ben to look into. I can reproduce it in my test site.

I've reset the Cart, cleared browser and template cache, and cussed. None of that worked. And usually the last one does....

#5 Re: Backlight 2 Support » BL1 to BL2 workflow question » Yesterday 23:05:43

Don’t copy over the backlight/ folder itself. That will overwrite the custom/ and data/ folders
Remove everything in the online backlight/ folder except the custom/ and data/ folders.

Open the backlight/ folder from the BL2 Installer download and upload everything except the custom/ and data/ folders to the online backlight/ folder

Be sure to upload the index.php and .htaccess files from the root of the downloaded installer folder to the root of the site.

#6 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Cart configuration » Yesterday 22:52:47

1) try resetting the cart after making any changes

#7 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » Yesterday 22:48:55

Hi Rainer, thanks for the login credentials.

I think I found the problem,
In Languages, the Display name for the French language was blank. And even though the tool tip stated: “Leave empty to use language Name”, the Name wasn’t being applied.
I copied the Name into the Display Name field and it’s working now.

#8 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Breadcrumbs » Yesterday 12:05:16

on the site with three breadcrumbs you have:

top level gallery > album set > album

on the site with four, it looks like:

top level gallery > album set > album > image title

Are both sites using the latest version of Backlight?

This is in the Changelog for the latest version:

Reinstates album title breadcrumb, and image title within breadcrumbs for single image pages

this probably explains why one site has three breadcrumbs and the other has four.

#9 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Breadcrumbs » Yesterday 11:02:09

on my test site, an album using the single image presentation shows the image title in the breadcrumb. Yours shows the album name (or is that what's in the image title?).

Are you using the latest version of Backlight?

#10 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Cart configuration » Yesterday 05:31:54

you can use an absolute url for the data-thumbnail value.

For the write-in buttons I have, I've created a folder on the server to house them and for the data-thumbnail value I just enter the absolute url to the specific thumbnail.

No need to mess with what's already in the backlight/ folders

Using what you have: data-thumbnail = "Manzanar.jpg", I believe the thumbnail would have to be directly in the album folder.
For me, it's just much easier to have one folder for all those write-in button thumbnails and to use an absolute url.

#12 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » Yesterday 04:54:32

Just to confirm, when you go to Settings > Language, French shows as Enabled?

If I change the language code from de to fr and fr to de, the German language I select shows the french language. In the top pallet language selector are always only 2 languages shown.


Just tested this in my own test site and it works fine. I initially forgot to enable German so only English and French were appearing. But once I enabled German it worked as expected.

#14 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » Yesterday 03:16:53

Placing the world icon in your menu bar actually looks pretty good. And those drop-downs seem to work fine.

#15 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Breadcrumbs » Yesterday 02:49:59

Have you compared the Breadcrumb settings for each site?

Go to Publisher > Top-level Galleries. Click on your top level gallery and then click on Edit Properties. Look for Show Top-level Breadcrumb in Child Albums and Sets and see if that setting makes any difference.

#16 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Cart configuration » Yesterday 02:43:49

I realized that the available pricing schemes do not show in Lightroom under integration. Only "default" was listed. Typing in the desired scheme fixed the problem.  Is this an error? In other words, should LR show available pricing options. If not, it would be helpful if the documentation reflected this.

this is not an error. It's been this way since the cart was first implemented in CE3. It's in the documentation: … -on_basics under Creating a Cart-enabled Album.

Also, is there a way to have different images (placeholder.png) for different Write in Purchase buttons

yes, just enter the url to the image in the button text by adding the data-thumbnail attribute … se_buttons

#17 Re: CE4 Pages » php update » Yesterday 00:40:46

You’ll have to redesign your site, but Backlight makes that easier than working in the Web module was.
If you were using CE 4 Publisher, there’s a migration function that will put all your albums and sets under Backlight control.
If you were exporting and uploading galleries you’ll need to start all over and republish everything.
Here are some tips:

#18 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Breadcrumbs » Yesterday 00:13:29

Is phplugins currently disabled on both sites?

Your suggestion that the php code relating to breadcrumbs does nothing has merit: I turned off php in the page template>advance setup>page setup>Extensibility>Custom Stylesheet>PHPlugins>disabled

Whether the php is disabled or not has no change on the page.

Also, I renamed the function to "breadcrumbs" as per examples found on the net. No success.

And it still does not explain why one site does not display like the other using the exact same php file.

“Breadcrumbs” us not a phplugins user hook. Those are all listed in the phplugins file.

If you’ve disabled phplugins and see no change, the the phplugins file is not the problem.

For troubleshooting purposes, I suggest leaving phplugins disabled on both sites for now.

#20 Re: CE4 Pages » php update » 2018-12-16 22:43:39

I think you have two options:

1) Update to Backlight

2) See if you can roll back the php version to an earlier on (5.6)
You should be able to do this in your hosts C-Panel

CE4 is noi longer being developed so don’t expect a fix

#21 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » 2018-12-16 22:41:05

Maybe a dumb question, but have you created a French language in Languages?
(In the menu, hover over Admin > Settings > Languages)

But my second question is not answered:

How can I change the language of my menu bars if I use the multilanguage support?


I’m guessing the same way as you would do it for the rest of the page.
The Name fields in the menu set can take html.
For the Name field of each link, try putting each link name in its own span element along with the necessary language code.
You’d have three spans in each Name field.

<span data-lang="en">English name</span><span data-lang="de">German name</span><span data-lang="Fr">French name</span>

#23 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Cart configuration » 2018-12-16 15:38:07

the credentials you posted don't work. Plus, I think we'd need at least Guest Updater to view the templates.

The error showing up can happen if your shipping prices aren't filled out. So check that.

All write-in button code can go into any copy area.

For your application, it sounds like you'd need to write a button for each album. If it's on a per album basis, then add the code to the album copy area (in Lightroom if using the Lightroom Publisher plug-in)

#24 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » 2018-12-16 09:35:34

yes, the menu bar.

You're using a different page template for each language so I'm at a loss to understand why the menu set for the page template isn't being applied for your version of Safari. I'd think that would be impossible.

#25 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » 2018-12-16 07:53:41

Is this still happening only in Safari? Because it seems to all work fine in Firefox and Chrome
