You can always add instructional text to the copy area your album template, that way it can be shown in every album.
This can be in the form of a pop-up box if you'd rather not have it in the main text.

#2 Re: Backlight Support » cart 402 » 2017-06-24 06:35:09

hard to tell what may be the problem with just a description and no link to an album.

I suggest sending Ben a link to a problem album along with Backlight admin access.

I believe the order of option is determined by the order that they're added to the products when you're setting up your products.

cloning CR feedback profiles is a feature of the upcoming 1.2 release smile

#4 Re: Backlight Support » Help Creating Pages » 2017-06-22 06:28:09

Yep, ttg-be is not part of Backlight

The only backlight menu that I have is at domain/ttg-be/admin and it gives no functionality for creating pages.

This is the TTG-BE interface from CE4

Lightroom has the pages module, but I have no idea how to get rid of the demo thing, and actually create and edit a page.

Again, this is CE4 not Backlight. There are no Web Module plug-ins for Backlight so there is no designing or page creation done in Lightroom when using Backlight.

Are you transitioning from a CE4 site? If so, these may help
From a CE4 Publisher managed site: http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … backlight/

From a CE4 uploaded gallery based site: http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … backlight/

And the basics of the Backlight template system: http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … templates/

#5 Re: General » possible to Re-design in backlight my CE4 template exactly as it was? » 2017-06-21 07:32:28

you might have to accept some differences between the CE4 album set design and Backlight's. But probably nothing that a little custom css can't help with.

#6 Re: General » possible to Re-design in backlight my CE4 template exactly as it was? » 2017-06-21 07:12:58

Will Backlight 1.1.1 be able to recreate this design

should be able to get pretty close.
Just create a page, make it the "index" page and insert your "galleries" album set.

#7 Re: Backlight Support » Cascading style sheets and customizing layout » 2017-06-21 06:31:40

I don't see a way to easily do what you want in the current version of Backlight. But just wait a little bit. The next version is in Beta and you can have your masthead and navigation on the same line then. Should be soon.

#8 Re: Backlight Support » Cascading style sheets and customizing layout » 2017-06-21 03:23:57

What exactly about the header do you want to change? Your name and the navigation are on the same line right now.

by "the footer a bit smaller" what do you mean? It looks pretty small right now.

You can add your email link in the same field as the Copyright if you want it all on one line.

Otherwise, you could use phplugins to replace the footer with your own code.

#10 Re: Backlight Support » Client response thumbnail size in phones » 2017-06-21 02:45:28

because thumbnails are so small on mobile devices, metadata display on thumbnails is not displayed. You could try finding the corresponding media query and overriding it in your own custom css.

you can view the entire stylesheet by going to your site and viewing the source code (right-click> View Page
Source) and clicking on the link that looks something like this

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="http://your-site.com/backlight/publisher/resource.php?template=6&extension=css&name=style" />

#11 Re: Backlight Support » Cascading style sheets and customizing layout » 2017-06-21 02:40:44

create your own css style sheets
http://backlight.theturninggate.net/doc … tylesheets

Layout of the header etc can be controlled in the Designer. But depending on what you want, you may need custom css or to use phplugins. It all depends on what you're after.

#12 Re: Backlight Support » Album Login screen Translation problem » 2017-06-20 19:54:44

Might be a silly question, but did you scroll down the Localization screen and save the settings?
I ask because it looks like other localization settings aren't being applied.

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Client response gallery - Unable to make selections » 2017-06-20 07:54:29

I think I see the problem. It's your file names, they contain parentheses, for example: Coliroma(2)_001.jpg

File and folder names should have only letters, numbers, underscores, or dashes. No commas, parentheses, or other special characters.

The parentheses are throwing off the javascript.

try renaming your files and see if that fixes things.

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Client response gallery - Unable to make selections » 2017-06-20 06:21:09

Is "Image Selects" enabled in the album template?
It's under Add Ons > Client Response Features

#15 Re: Backlight Support » Can Gallery Breadcrumb Sync with Nav Menu Set? » 2017-06-20 01:40:28

I don't believe you can do what you want with the setup you're using. The breadcrumbs are part of Publisher so that means that albums and album sets appear, not individual pages.

what you could try is to take the page copy you're using on the Lyrical Quires page and place it in the Queries album set. Then you shouldn't need the separate Lyrical Quires page, just use the album set.

You'd then need to change the menu set to reflect the structure change by changing the Lyrical Quires item from linking to a page to linking to the quires album set.

#16 Re: Backlight Support » Starting from scratch » 2017-06-19 07:23:11

you can do all that you outlined.

The issues with WAMP would be things like needing to change settings in Backlight like Site URL as well as changing the Publisher API URL and API key in Lightroom after you've uploaded the backlight/ folder to your site.


For the most part, customizing fonts and colors can be done from within the Backlight Designer. Some things like changing the fonts for image captions from what you've set in Backlight would require custom css. For example: http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … rge-images

Insert images into pages using HTML in the page copy. I upload images for this purpose to a folder in the root of my site rather than use the Backlight upload feature. That way I can use a url like: /img/image-name.jpg. A url like that will work with a WAMP site or a site developed in a sub-domain or the main site (as long as you use a folder in the root to hold the images)

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Seeking Backlight Contact Form Resources » 2017-06-18 09:12:07

I think I see what happened. In adding the custom css to align the form, that css overrode the .honeypot css changing it from display: none; to display: block;)

try adding this to your css

p.honey-pot {display:none !important;}

#18 Re: Backlight Support » Seeking Backlight Contact Form Resources » 2017-06-18 09:04:58

a couple things to try:
make sure the contact page is using the correct contact form.

Try clearing template cache: Click on Designer in the menu, then on Clear Template Cache.

Is your host using some form of page caching as well? If so, try disabling that while designing.

#19 Re: Backlight Support » Seeking Backlight Contact Form Resources » 2017-06-18 08:22:50

You can modify the contact form by going to Designer > Contact Forms.
Click on the Edit link for your form.

#20 Re: Backlight Support » Seeking Backlight Contact Form Resources » 2017-06-18 04:32:09

it looks like your custom css is doing this:

p {
	font-family: SofiaProLight;
	font-size: 14px;
	display: inline-block;
	text-align: left;
}

specifically the display: inline-block; rule.

if you need all your paragraphs to be inline-block, then try adding this to your custom css:

#form p {
display: block;
}

otherwise, try refining the rule that calls for display: inline-block; to make it more specific to your needs.

#21 Re: Backlight Support » My settings don't apply! » 2017-06-17 23:32:49

Just noticed that the large image display only works in Photoswipe not in Single Image mode. Why?

do you have an example? It works for me.

In Photoswipe, is it possible to disable any image sharing with social medias?

yes. In the album template > Large Image Presentation settings under Photoswipe.

Hi Rod,
Been away a few days...
I re-checked the settings for the Album Set and Album and made some design changes. In Publisher, the Album templates are identified (correctly) as GBC album.
The HOME page does not display correctly: none of my design changes show + thumbnails are way too large;
The ALBUM pages have small thumbnails on the large background (but I can live with that for now.); large image displays correctly.

Still, can't find what is wrong.

Your Home page has an album set inserted into it. It's not surprising that the thumbnails look different than those in your albums.
Change the thumbnail settings your album set template

#23 Re: Backlight Support » My settings don't apply! » 2017-06-17 00:06:48

Check on the page templates that those two pages are using. Currently your Home and Contact pages are using a template named "Backlight Standard Page", not your GBC template.
Simply change the page template for those pages.

#24 Re: Backlight Support » password for index page » 2017-06-16 12:19:15

I haven't tried this, but see if it works:
Create a password protected album and insert that album into the index page.

If that doesn't work, try .htaccess password protection: http://www.htaccesstools.com/articles/p … rotection/

however, if you're using the Client Response module, then you'll need to use its password implementation if you want the full benefits of client management.

#25 Re: Backlight Support » Edit check box text in CRF » 2017-06-16 02:27:12

log into Backlight, go to Client Response > Settings > Feedback Profiles and edit an existing profile or create a new one.
