#1 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Metadata display not working » 2019-09-24 02:21:47

No caption, no title....if I set on Metadata One or Two the only result is the Filename....but when I upload my imges, if I use LR, the Filenames are not visible...


#2 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Metadata display not working » 2019-09-24 00:07:35

some news: I see that in the web page figures the name "first pangolin album template ID 27". The point is that that was the original name of my first template prepared win Pangolin; but in the meantime, the name  was changed simply to "album pangolin" and once the name was changed, several properties were changed as well, among them the Metadata exhibition...I don't know if this could be the problem, but I don't understand why the name of the template wasn't change during all this time...I cleared cache several times..


P.S. should I update Album Files?

#3 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Metadata display not working » 2019-09-23 23:34:55

I did not assigned an ID to any of my templates...their corresponding boxes are could I check if the number 27 is the right one?


#4 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Metadata display not working » 2019-09-23 19:38:48

See here....five times I uploaded the same image thinking that I was forgetting something in the metadata, and some exhibit now the filename, others not.. … ca/?page=2


P.S. I have cleared the web browser data and template cache...the same happens with the gallery Black and White that was republished using LR

I have switched on the Metadata display in order to show either {Title} or {Caption} in my thumbnails, then I republished my galleries from Lightroom and no title or caption is shown. The same happens with the images that I processed with Capture One and published after uploading them directly from the Publisher. I tried several times and the problem persists. I wonder why...the only thing that appears is the Filename, although I put "Caption" and/or "Title", I never asked for "Filename"!

Updated to php I can see the exported file...thanks!..Agustín

#7 Re: Backlight 2 Support » can't export a template » 2019-09-14 04:29:17

Yes,  and I don't see any Save As box there...

the step by step is very easy: I select a pangolin template from the list of templates and once in the VIEW TEMPLATE I see the buttons for : Back-Clone-Design-Edit-Properties-Export Template-Restore Defaults-Delete, and I click on "Export Template"...crash!

Respect  to Guest updater credentials....does it mean that I have to create a Guest under "users" with a username and password and send both to whom?...this forum?


#8 Re: Backlight 2 Support » can't export a template » 2019-09-14 03:30:30

sorry for the delay....some problems with internet here...
I went not too far...I just clicked on Export button and get a white screen with the message (sorry but it's in Spanish):

"No se puede acceder a este sitio webEs posible que la página web … e/25/view/ esté temporalmente inactiva o que se haya trasladado definitivamente a otra dirección.

This is a Pangolin template, I am moving everything from Okapi to Pangolin...

Backlight is currently installed in a subfolder of my domain...all the Backlight system seemingly works fine, the only problem appeared when trying to export  the my English webpage (I had two backlight versions, one for Spanish and another for English), but now I am working with the possibility of BL 2 and installed both languages in the same site...great improvement!..


P.D. I don't get how to include here the image of the screen, I think it would be the same...

I have just installed Backlight 2 in a subdomain so I can check that all is running fine and change my Okapis templates to Pangolin ones. After finishing  my first Pangolin template I tried to export it, but I get a message like: … e/25/view/ is temporality inactive or maybe was moved definitely to other address.

In fact, the browser moves to such address that is obviously non existent in the server!...there is no "designer" folder under backlight!

what is wrong?


P.S. I see in my tree under Backlight only [custom], [data], [installer] and [modules]; however in my current Backlight 1 installation   I see [admin], [cart], [client-response], [custom], [data], [designer], [framework], [modules], [publisher] and [search]

#10 Re: Backlight Support » Update to 1.03 = disaster » 2016-07-13 08:20:55

thanks Ben!....PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!....I replaced the file and now everything runs fine.....apparently my host uses php 5.6.23 updated last 24 June.....


#11 Re: Backlight Support » Update to 1.03 = disaster » 2016-07-13 05:44:19

what happens if I replace the corresponding files of 1.03 with those of the previous 1.02 version? it possible to downgrade?.....

#12 Re: Backlight Support » Update to 1.03 = disaster » 2016-07-13 05:05:27

Yes, I did....I followed the usual instructions for updating....

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Backup site layout » 2016-06-15 00:26:10

when I want to change templates and see if they work for me, I clone the one I am using, so that I have two versions with perhaps minor modifications...and all reside in Backlight, so that I know where they are all the time and they are accesible all the the time.....In the past I used to backup my CE4 files but I had no chance to easily go from one version to the other as it is with Backlight and the possibility of having all the templates at the same time available for immediate use....I think that Rod's suggestion is the best solution for you...


#15 Re: Backlight Support » Why Backlight? What am I gaining? » 2016-06-11 01:17:26

I moved from CE4 to Backlight as soon as it appeared...why?...because I found that I was gaining time, patience and easiness to work and design.....however....Backlight is still in the first stages....I moved to it knowing that several features that were in CE4 were not in Backlight...yet.....but I guess they will be there with time.....for me the use of CE4 was sometimes exasperating not because of CE4 but because of LR!....the web module in LR was poor till the arrive of CE3/CE4 but then it was very rich but at the same time very slow, particularly when updating things for me there is no I use LR only for exporting images from albums, the rest is history....I like this, more time dedicated to images and less time dedicated to struggle with the slowness of LR with CE4 (or whatever) I miss anything from CE4? sure!....but I can survive without them for the moment.......there is no way to use Photoswipe in the home page, the implementation of fonts for the different sections of text is still limited, you cannot make a frame in the images in the home page, etc. (please, I am saying that you cannot do these things from Backlight options, I know that some things can be done manually, but in CE4 was possible without knowing anything about css or personal customisations....), but the use of Backlight is far, far easier and faster that CE4 and I built up a bilingual site from scratch in just one day, while with CE4 it requiered almost a week, because going back and forth from one template to another in LR was a headache.

just my thoughts.......

In the log file it is said that: "Changed Google Fonts from @import embed in stylesheet, to <link> embed in document."......sorry for my ignorance, but what should I do now to change my fonts? How do I set a different font and in where in the document?


#18 Re: Backlight Support » Something went wrong (aka Galleries problem) » 2016-06-08 23:16:42

Problem solved!.....I have just updated to v 1.0.2, and now all runs fine (or at least it seems so.....let's see during the day....).


#20 Re: Backlight Support » Something went wrong (aka Galleries problem) » 2016-06-08 02:43:45

Yep!, I tried, but the problem is that I can go to the galleries directly ( but I cannot move from the same way that I cannot enter in my site directly to home page......very strange....but it happens only when I set the menu link as Album Set for galleries......with the "Page"   option everithing runs fine (except, as previously that then I have problems with the Search...see my topic of yesterday to this respect...)..something is crashing with the links when I make such change.....


#21 Re: Backlight Support » Something went wrong (aka Galleries problem) » 2016-06-08 02:22:41

you had no problems because I set back the link to "Page" Galleries instead of  "Album Set"......try now, and you will see.... (:

Yesterday I made a change in my Menu and changed the Gallery link from what I set originally as "Page" to  "Album Set"....and all went my "English" version of the site......but I forgot to check on the "Spanish" side of the site.  Today I try to enter and got a red block with the message:

Something went wrong

realpath() [function.realpath]: SAFE MODE Restriction in effect. The script whose uid is 33865 is not allowed to access /www/docs owned by uid 0 in PathBuilder.php on line 34

I wonder what is going wrong......the usual suspect is me (naturally!) but what I find is that setting the gallery link to Album Set in the Spanish side of the web site does not work, only on the English side......I suspect that something went wrong during the inital stages of installing Backlight (I created the initial site in a subdomain, then I downloaded it in my computer and uploaded to the main domain, and then created the second instance of Backlight under the English folder)........


#23 Re: Backlight Support » Strange issue with Search Page » 2016-06-07 08:44:23

thanks Ben for the explanation. Now I see all clearer......the problem is that for the moment the documentation of Backlight is scarce (although enough for creating a site), so if by chance things work fine from the very beginning, one finds  no problems, but when one do something unexpected or goes beyond the simple initial steps, well.....we have to bother you or Rod......thanks again!


#24 Re: Backlight Support » Strange issue with Search Page » 2016-06-07 07:44:49

ops! please, excuse my ignorance!.......I thought that Galleries was a Page, not an Album Set (maybe this would require some clarification in the future documentation of Backligth)

Well, I changed the Gallery entry from Page to Album Set = Gallery, and.....WORKS!,, I am curious.....why it Works now and not before?..what makes a difference between using a Page or an Album Set in the Menu?....just to learn something more about Backlight..


#25 Re: Backlight Support » Strange issue with Search Page » 2016-06-07 07:08:31

when I  set "Album Set" instead of "Page"  link  the only option that appears to the left is "Galleries" and then the options for descending levels, but there is no way to select an Album Set....
