#1 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-20 20:55:21

I'm running Sierra 10.12.6 Beta and the latest LR and have no issues so I also doubt it's the OS version. Reverting back is a lot of work, especially if that doesn't fix the problem. Just my $.02.

#2 Re: Backlight Support » Can't update a gallery nor can I upload photos to a new gallery » 2017-06-13 22:15:16

Assuming that you do backup your catalog (I have LR set up to back mine up weekly) the default location is in the Pictures\Lightroom\Backups folder (on a Mac, I assume a similar location on Windows). In LR just do file/open catalog and navigate to a catalog that was backed up before you started having the issue and see if that resolves it. If so then somehow your catalog has been corrupted.

If that is the case you can use the backup catalog but realize that you'd have to synchronize any folders that you have imported to or changed files in since the backup.

#3 Re: Backlight Support » Can't update a gallery nor can I upload photos to a new gallery » 2017-06-13 21:30:24

Have you tried using a backup version of the catalog to see if it's a catalog problem?

#4 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-07 00:38:07

It can be a pain, but you might try resetting LR's preferences. I've had to do that a few times it the past when LR started acting weird.

do you have campagna.css specified in your template under 'advanced customization' 'custom stylesheet'?

#6 Re: Backlight Support » Labeling Individual Pictures » 2017-05-26 20:50:03

Thanks Mark. I don't know if it helps SEO or not, but that was also part of my intent.

#7 Re: Backlight Support » Labeling Individual Pictures » 2017-05-26 00:36:33

My Photos Caption field in backlight is "{Title}, {CameraModel}  {Lens}  {Exposure}   {Keywords}"

#8 Re: Backlight Support » Labeling Individual Pictures » 2017-05-25 23:06:52

Set the title and caption in Lightroom and then you can set the Photo caption and title in your album template in Backlight under Image Settings / Image Metadata. The caption is what will show on the large image presentation, which is what I use.

#9 Re: Backlight Support » .htaccess redirect not working » 2017-04-21 22:49:48

In your Backlight menu set can you not just specifiy the URL for your services php file?

#10 Re: Backlight Support » .htaccess redirect not working » 2017-04-21 22:27:23

Ah, I didn't read your post clearly. It might be simpler just to move the content from the CE4 pages to Backlight ones, that's what I did. Initially it's more work but simplifies maintenance down the road. Unless you are wanting to keep both CE4 and Backlight sites.

#11 Re: Backlight Support » .htaccess redirect not working » 2017-04-21 20:26:43

Here is the .htaccess form my 'galleries' folder and my rewrite rules seem to work correctly:

#12 Re: Backlight Support » Galleries within galleries » 2017-04-19 20:24:23

Same with me, the album set cover image isn't even there when I select random.

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Galleries within galleries » 2017-04-18 20:14:27

You need to create an album set under LR for your top level and then include your sub galleries within the set. That's what I have done on my site and it works fine. You will also need to create an album set template under Backlight to assign to your LR album set.

I also included this code in my .htaccess under the galleries folder
so I wouldn't get a bunch of 404 errors from search engines that had already indexed my site:

    # redirects for revised gallery structure

    RewriteRule ^smoky-mountains/(.*)$ /galleries/landscapes/smoky-mountains/$1 [R=301,NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^seashores-swamps-and-wetlands/(.*)$ /galleries/landscapes/seashores-swamps-and-wetlands/$1 [R=301,NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^great-plains-and-mountain-west/(.*)$ /galleries/landscapes/great-plains-and-mountain-west/$1 [R=301,NC,L]
    RewriteRule ^far-west/(.*)$ /galleries/landscapes/far-west/$1 [R=301,NC,L]

    RewriteRule ^desert-southwest/(.*)$ /galleries/landscapes/desert-southwest/$1 [R=301,NC,L]

    # end redirects

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Thumbnails in Album Set? » 2017-04-16 05:38:22

I just use the drop down menu but not sure if it is documented.

#16 Re: Backlight Support » Thumbnails in Album Set? » 2017-04-16 04:25:59

Right click on the album within the set and select edit album. On the base settings tab there is a cover image dropdown.

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Thumbnails in Album Set? » 2017-04-16 03:42:59

In Lightroom you can select the cover image for an album in an album set. The default is random.

#18 Re: Backlight Support » https:// .htaccess - how should it look like? » 2017-04-15 06:57:28

If you mean in the galleries folder, I didn't. My .htaccess in there is the same as came from TTG except for some rules to do some redirection after I reorganize my directory structure to avoid 404's. I don't have an .htaccess file in the backlight folder itself.

#19 Re: Backlight Support » https:// .htaccess - how should it look like? » 2017-04-13 04:54:36

Cool, glad you got in working. I'm not sure why mine works either. ;-)

#21 Re: Backlight Support » https:// .htaccess - how should it look like? » 2017-04-12 23:55:08

Weird, works fine in Firefox Chrome and Safari for me. Have you tried other browsers to see if the message makes more sense?

#22 Re: Backlight Support » https:// .htaccess - how should it look like? » 2017-04-12 20:16:36

That's exactly what it does for me on my site when I enter those combinations. Mine is at the top of my .htaccess, though.

This is what my rewrite rule looks like:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    RewriteCond %{HTTPS} off
    RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [L,R=301]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I copied it off the net somewhere but it seems to work fine. If someone accesses my site with http it is converted to https.

#24 Re: Backlight Support » Backlight Publisher instance not showing up in LR CC. » 2017-04-06 03:20:24

You have to right click on one of the CE4 instances and select 'create another publisher service ...' to make one for Backlight.
