And that feature is available in most all browsers.

have you checked that all shipping prices are filled out?
Cart> Pricing > Shipping
If any are missing you will see red warning text

Google translation:

Haben Sie überprüft, ob alle Versandpreise ausgefüllt sind?
Warenkorb> Preise> Versand
Wenn welche fehlen, wird ein roter Warnungstext angezeigt

#4 Re: Backlight 3 Support » RSS feed. How to add the RSSfeed button? » 2020-05-24 08:19:21

From what I've seen, if you just plug in your feed enabled site in the search form of your favorite rss feeder, it will find the site and add it to the feed.
It will pick up all new albums, no need to add it album by album or page by page.

So anyone who uses a feed reader will know how to do it, you can just inform them.
Perhaps use the RSS icon in the social media area and link it to a page that informs viewers that the site can be added to their favorite feed reader.

#5 Re: General » need help !!! (Thread in German!) » 2020-05-24 08:15:17

make sure that all Shipping prices for the new products are filled out.

#6 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Hero image » 2020-05-23 23:57:01

that’s because the album needs to be published before Backlight can know about it. You can’t chose the cover image before publication because Lightroom needs to communicate with Backlight to see what’s available.

#9 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Display discrepancies with different browsers » 2020-05-23 02:08:50

the page looks pretty much the same to me in all browsers. What differences are you seeing, besides the browser layout itself (menu, bars, etc.)

The only Safari browser I can test in is Safari iOS. The About page looks the same in both, other than, of course, the text.

have you tried all the usual tricks: clear browser cache, clear template cache?

#10 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Intermittant display of images, embedded gallery on pages and sidebar » 2020-05-22 22:26:12

is the file name correct?
this is what it should look like


#12 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Intermittant display of images, embedded gallery on pages and sidebar » 2020-05-22 21:55:19

try creating a folder on the server and place the image in that. Put the image url inside BBCode img tags.

#13 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Thumbnails & albums missing » 2020-05-22 21:30:38

could you have removed the photos via ftp?

It could be a corrupt database, so upgrading would not solve the problem.

can you create new albums?

is your Backlight 2 version up to date? What version number is installed?

Do you know if your host has made any changes, like updating php? What php version is installed?

#14 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Intermittant display of images, embedded gallery on pages and sidebar » 2020-05-22 17:37:31

does this only occur on the home page?
I vaguely recall a similar error from long ago. I think it was associated with Galleria?

Your home page is working fine for me in Safari for iOS

#15 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Modal image stay on top » 2020-05-22 02:34:38

Also, Backlight already supports and loads jQuery, so you don't need to load it again.

#17 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Strange behavior » 2020-05-21 08:22:35

page elements moving to strange places is a good indication of a missing opening or closing div tags.
been there, done that. more than once wink

#18 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Strange behavior » 2020-05-21 06:35:55

If you write your html in a good text or code editor, it will show your errors. You can also use online validators.

One trick is to write out your structure first and then fill it in. So create the empty divs then start adding paragraphs, etc.





#19 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Album set thumbnail behavior » 2020-05-21 03:56:41

I've noticed this errant border before in single language sites (mine and others). I think it may be a bug and have reported it.

In the album set template Grid settings even if you set the border to 0, that one single border above where the metadata would go (figcaption) is showing up. What I've done is to set the border color in the template to match the background color, basically the same thing Daniel is advising.

#20 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Containing Album Set error when trying to Publish in Lightroom » 2020-05-21 03:12:31

the lorem ipsum will come from pages you create as well as album and album set templates.
if you’re inserting albums or album sets into pages, then the lorem ipsum will be coming from the page since album and album set text is not included when you insert either into a page.

#21 Re: Backlight 3 Support » I don't want this data to come out, and I can't disable it! » 2020-05-21 03:02:47

that's the image title attribute. If the title field is empty, it defaults to file name. I've yet been unable to find a css way to make it not appear.
Showing the title when hovering over an image is, I believe, a browser function.

I see a jQuery solution here: … -the-image

you would implement this using the scripts hook in phplugins.

See if this announcement blog post clears things up: … ght-3-now/

from what I remember, if you purchased Backlight 2 in 2020, you would be entitled to a free upgrade.

#23 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Custom Thumbnails Sort Order » 2020-05-19 22:02:50

in Backlight go to Publisher.
click on the “Albums” link on the right side of the page that corresponds to the top level gallery of the album or album set you’re interested in.
Click on the name of album or album set.
Click “Edit Album” ( or album set)
Click on Base Settings
the Cover Image setting is in that group.

#24 Re: Backlight 3 Support » Can't remove Lorem ipsum text on Contact page » 2020-05-18 21:25:56

there are two places that can come from, the page itself and the contact form’s “Invitation” field. Try editing the contact form.

#25 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Getting Started with new JSON API » 2020-05-18 00:06:42

you can add the code to either hook, along with your existing code. you just can’t call a hook more than once.
