YOU ARE RIGHT!...I was using Opera....now I changed to Chrome and everything goes fine (although Opera still shows  the globe!) ...thanks!

Update...Opera is OK now, I cleaned the cache....

UPDATE!!:  I see the change in my IPad but not in my Windows PC!, or the Android mobile...so there is some kind of issue related to the operating system

Agustin,

I see that you've uploaded the css. There's a syntax error. You have:

html[lang="es"].fa-globe:before{
   content: "ES";
}
 
html[lang="en"].fa-globe:before{
   content: "EN";
}

There needs to be a space before .fa-globe. Change the code so it looks like this:

html[lang="es"] .fa-globe:before{
   content: "ES";
}
 
html[lang="en"] .fa-globe:before{
   content: "EN";
}

still not working....any ideas?

Daniel,

I have no knowledge about CSS, but I copied and pasted your code into my custom.css file and nothing happened...the Home page shows as usual...maybe I did not understand what to do with your code...

Agustin

P.D. this is what my css file contains:

.nav.nav_h ul.primary-menu ul.sub-menu {
        width: 400px;

/* Language switching */

html .fa-globe:before{
   font-family: Arial;
   font-weight: 700;
   font-size: 0.875em;
}   

html[lang="es"].fa-globe:before{
   content: "ES";
}

html[lang="en"].fa-globe:before{
   content: "EN";
}


#language-selector ul {
   width: 75px;
}

You can change the globe icon with custom css. Either swapping it for another icon or using text.

it would be interesting to know how....I was thinking also that perhaps the globe is not directly understood by some people and inserting something like " EN | ES" for English/Spanish would be better....

yes, I saw the list...it is rather short at the moment, but will probably increase in the future smile

From what I saw and what you say now, I see that what I pretend is, at least at the development stage of Backlight, not possible at all...Gallery works fine, but there is no way to manipulate and customize the texts above and below the images as needed. Limitations in the language are clear...thanks anyway for the suggestions and comments. It's good to know when our ideas have its limits and which ones  smile

Well, my first tries were unsuccessful ....I faced a first problem with Tokens: seems that when you use LR, the number of tokens you can use are quite larger than in the case of using Capture One, so tokens like {Location} are missing....so, I tried to use the {Category} field and insert all the information there with some additional code for text font (<b>, <i>, etc.) and breaking lines (<br>)...the first result was that the album was a mess with such information included in the image!...images were overlapping each other...so for the moment I abandoned the idea of using a Galleria album for the home page...in principle I would need to have the possibility of using three tokens: Caption, Location and...a third one for including which to month corresponds each image...with the possibility of setting such information in different languages...maybe I am asking too much...

the other point that I didn't try, because of the initial problems, is if it is possible to change the language of the captions and month date (as shown in my site at the moment) using the Gallery album and the tokens...

Agustin

#10 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Customizing the image in the Home page » 2020-05-13 09:07:54

I will give it a try. I am not sure but I assume that I will need to incorporate the text I insert below each image previously in the image metadata in order to show it on the page as a token...besides, I have to see how to add the data (month,year) to each image as well....but I will follow your advise and see what happens...

Agustin

#11 Re: Backlight 3 Customization » Customizing the image in the Home page » 2020-05-13 04:14:59

OK!...I found how to add a "border" using CSS!.....this seems to be the easiest of my queries smile

The question about a "gallery" of the "Image of the month" is still open...

I have updated my web site with Backlight 3 without problems and improving the galleries presentation using the great Hero Image. Now, I would like to add a frame to the image in the Home page (www.agustinbolzan.com.ar). The "Image of the month" is inserted according the following code:

###<div data-lang="es"><p style="text-align: center;font-weight: bold">Imagen del mes</div><div data-lang="en"><p style="text-align: center;font-weight: bold">Image of the month</div>

<img alt ="" src=" http://agustinbolzan.com.ar/backlight/designer?c=page&a=image&p1=14"  style= "width:960px;" class="aligncenter" />   

<div data-lang="es"><p style="text-align: center;"> <b> El sol se levanta sobre la sabana sudafricana</b> <br><i>(Phinda Game Reserve,  Sudáfrica)</i> </div> <div data-lang="en"><p style="text-align: center;"> <b>The sun rises over the south african savanna</b> <br><i>(Phinda Game Reserve, South Africa)</i> </div>

What should I add to the code in order to add a thin single or double frame to the image?

Second question: as you see, I add one different image each month. What would be nice is to have something like a "gallery" inserted in the home page that allows to go backwards and see the previous "Image of the month", not only the current one (including the date of each previous image). Is this possible with Backlight 3?

Yes, and no. There are no options to customize the quick search directly. Colors are inferred from your template settings.

How are the colours inferred?...from where the page appears white, the box blue and the text....I don’t distinguish what colour the text is....

Perfect!...so everything is ok then....but...is there any way to customize the quick search page?...I mean, for instance, change the colours?....I don’t find where this page appears in Backlight....

I don't know what I did wrong (or maybe I should have done something that I didn't), but click on the Search icon
(www.agustinbolzan.com.ar) and see what happens: firstly, I get a page where to enter the search items which is white with a box for searching and then, after the search, I get the normal layout corresponding to the Home page...I don't understand...

#16 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Capture One » 2020-05-08 02:54:01

After changing from LR to Capture One one year ago, I  find quite more easy to export from CO and upload to Backlight than using the Publisher plugin. Even if I were still using LR (which would be a big mistake from my point of view smile  ), I would abandon the Publisher route and use the straightforward way of directly uploading. I think that this is one of the big improvements Backlight has. You have absolute control of the uploading process, with LR you can find some issues from time to time...at least that was my personal experience...

I have upgraded to Backlight 3 and decided to use the Hero image with almost great success. And I say almost because I had a strange problem. I have used the same template for two different galleries and the render of the thumbnail grids is different!...how could it be? Compare http://agustinbolzan.com.ar/galleries/civilizacion/ and  http://agustinbolzan.com.ar/galleries/fauna/ . The same template and different results.

Dear Rod,

following your last answer, I see  that what I need to include is the statements:

.nav.nav_h ul.primary-menu ul.sub-menu {
        width: NNNpx;

the question is:  where should I include this?...
Agustin

#21 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Album title length » 2019-11-19 03:25:27

sorry!...yes!, I was meaning the navigation menu!!

#22 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Album title length » 2019-11-19 02:56:02

Thank you Rod, I knew the issue about the use of language code, that's why I am trying to find an alternative solution...and in the album set template you can only change the character limit for the thumbnails grid not for the titles...

I have upgraded Backlight and updated my site as bilingual (formerly I used to create two sites in the two languages and link one to the other, now is easier with Backlight 2.0), and as Backlight cannot manage the language translation for some points, one of them the Album titles, I had to write each album title in the two languages separated by a slash...the problem is that it seems that one cannot write the title either in two lines or increase the width of the menu title so the line is seen completely.  Is there anyway to overcome such problems?

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

No way...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...

Agustin

#25 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..

Agustin

P.S. should I update Album Files?
