When I resized the width on a browser window with your main page it looked fine when it got down to mobile width although the text bullet points were aligned vertically instead of horizontally, or do you meanyou want it to resize so it will all fit without scrolling?

Here's a link to some tips on responsive web design, but it can get complicated so you might be going down a rabbit hole.

At least it's less complicated than needing to create multiple images for different sized displays and writing the code for it.

I agree, the <picture> tag is more useful when the images are actually different rather than just different sized but in your case it is overkill.

In this case I think he could probably just use it in his page source where he currently inserts the hearts to insert two (or more)  different sized ones and wouldn't need to use any CSS.

I like the HTML <picture> tag for doing things like this but it is not supported in older browsers so you have to make that decision before you use it. In browsers where it is not supported it will just continue to use the default image and not resize, it won't break anything. I use this to have two different sized banner images for desktop and mobile.

                <picture>
                    <source media="(max-width: 440px)" srcset="/backlight/custom/images/Short_Logo.png">
                    <img src="/backlight/custom/images/Regular_Logo.png">
                </picture>

Since this is for mobile, I don't think there are many phones out there with browsers that don't support this.

you need to enclose the code within the function with

echo '

... code here ...

';

Excellent description of how sorting works.

I understand you can have multiple page templates with different phplugins files, I just wasn't sure that what he was looking for rather than do things differently on an individual album by album basis. And I wasn't sure you could get the album name in phplugins. Live and learn.

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Can some code be added to a gallery? » 2017-11-21 06:27:55

I think phplugins will apply to every gallery and not really show if a particular person has viewed a particular gallery?

You can add page copy to an album via Lightroom (edit album > page content) but I don't know what would happen if you tried to insert HTML via that route.

I'd also suggest that, once you get things working with just markdown and before you start tweaking with HTML you 'clone' your pages in Backlight to 'pagename-save' or something so you have a stable point to get back to if things go sideways. Go to designer > pages and click on the page name and you will see the option to clone the page.

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Googel Analytics set anonymizeIp » 2017-11-20 08:03:20

I think you can also use

echo <<<SCRIPT

...

SCRIPT;

in place of

echo '

...

';

That way you don't have to escape single quotes. I'm no expert, though, so I could be mistaken.

No problem, obviously the folks who are legally required take precedence and there is always phplugins for those who want more granularity. Thanks.

#21 Re: Backlight Support » After uploading an image, how do you add it to a page? » 2017-11-18 06:14:50

my uploaded images are of the form "/backlight/designer/?c=page&a=image&p1=xx"

but I'm no web designer so I don't know what the significance of the difference in format is.

#22 Re: Backlight Support » After uploading an image, how do you add it to a page? » 2017-11-18 05:40:46

Look under designer > uploaded images and click on the image name and you will see the URL to use listed.

This does slightly decrease the accuracy of geographic reporting in analytics, so if anyone cares about this aspect it would be nice to have a way to turn it on or off rather than having it one way or the other by default. For what it's worth.

#24 Re: Backlight Support » How to remove the path showing up in some pages » 2017-11-16 08:06:06

Turn off "Display Breadcrumbs" in your album set in Lightroom.

#25 Re: Backlight Support » Poor quality of images after publishing » 2017-11-15 04:21:33

In your album template under Image Renditions you specify the size and quality of the jpegs that Publisher uses to 'publish' the album assigned to that template.
