I am running PHP 7 with backlight without problems. I am self-hosted though but that shouldn't affect the php implementation.

Is CE4 Gallery > Output Settings > Shopping Cart Integration: Cart URL using https?

When you change the metadata you want displayed you have to republish the album(s) from Lightroom. You can change the TTG Publisher settings to "push metadata ..." when you republish but be sure and uncheck the box afterward.

To share the link to the .jpg on facebook instead of the link to the page you would change '.$actual_link.' to '.$imgfullpath.' in my example. When they click on the image in FB, though, it will still take them back to the image in your gallery.

You would not want to put the code in any of backlight modules themselves though as that would cause you version control problems down the road, you would want to activate phpplugins and put the code in either the ttg_single_top or ttg_single_bottom hooks.

Using cuson css and phplugins you can add sharing to single image pages, there is an example here: … hp?id=7849

#10 Re: General » TTG CE4 -> Backlight ? » 2017-09-08 21:29:01

Remember also that any new features and improvements will likely be added to Backlight and not CE4.

Masonry layout handles square photos on my site as well as portrait and landscape 2X3, etc.

#12 Re: Backlight Support » Distorted thumbnails » 2017-09-03 07:58:26

What gallery style are you using in the thumbnail grid? If you are using 'justified' then that's what it will do, try "masonry' or 'classic'.

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Deleted Gallery still Shows with 404 Error. » 2017-08-30 04:58:48

If you go to backlight > publisher >top level galleries > albums you can delete individual galleries.

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Ability to add html / script? » 2017-08-30 04:54:30

Yes, just add it in the page capy section of your page(s).

#16 Re: Backlight Support » Slide show First page » 2017-08-27 19:29:40

You will need the Backlight theater module, create an album template for your slideshow and  select your slideshow type, create a slideshow in Lightroom using that template and upload it, and then on your home page use 'insert album' to insert your slide show.

#18 Re: Backlight Support » "View Cart" button color/background » 2017-08-26 00:55:41

I see that too, but when I click on the cart icon there is a dropdown with the amount in the cart in black and below it the text "view cart" in white on a white background. I assume the "view text" is a button and getting its color for my top pallet button setting.

#19 Backlight Support » "View Cart" button color/background » 2017-08-26 00:15:43

I have my top pallet buttons set to white text with a transparent background but when there is an item in the cart the "view cart" button is invisible. Is there a way I can change the "view cart" button text to something other than the top pallet button text color or change the dropdown background?

Cool Rod, I've been trying to figure out how to do this too. Thanks.

#21 Re: General » Opinions please on if we should all be changing to https:// » 2017-08-22 21:28:09

Google uses https as a factor in search engine ranking, fwiw.  How much difference it makes I have no clue.

#22 Re: General » Opinions please on if we should all be changing to https:// » 2017-08-21 21:19:23

I switched to https a few months ago using a certificate from letsencrypt (free). It was a pretty simple change; other than changing all hardcoded links in Backlight I added a rewrite rule to .htaccess to force all incoming http traffic to https.

I am self hosted, though, and I don't know if your provider will allow you to use a certificate from letsencrypt.

#23 Re: Backlight Support » reCAPTCHA » 2017-08-16 06:29:35

I've had a few SPAM emails so I implemented it. Very simple to do and, at least from my experience, seems to be somewhat of a standard around the web.

#24 Re: Backlight Support » Get image URL (jpg) - Add Social Sharing to Single Image Pages » 2017-08-14 06:58:44

FWIW, this is the css styling I used:

    text-align: right;
    float: none;
    padding-right: 24px;
#social-align.icon {
    display: inline-block;

Board footer
