Hi, in desktop view, the fancybox navigation arrows are disappearing after a few seconds. What is the right css code to make them always visible like in mobile view?


#4 Backlight 2 Support » How to change thumbnails in albums in an easy way? » 2019-09-11 02:11:48

Hi, I changed my website to iconic-style. So I had to recreate and to upload the new sharp thumbnails for the album-sets and the albums.
Now I have seen, that a lot of the thumbnails inside my albums are not as sharp as possible (Safari, in Firefox they are much more sharper).
Because I want also change the size of them - what is the right way? Do I have to upload all images, after I have set the thumbnail size in my album template? Or have I export the new thumbs in the new size from Lightroom and upload them manually with FileZilla in the thumbnail folder? This is, what I have taken in the past with Backlight 1.

Thanks Matt, I use only custom thumbnails - since backlight 1.

Yes indeed. It seems you never sleep.
2 weeks work during holiday to change the site to iconic style. I've learnt once more a lot of programming with your help and try and error. At home, I have to upload my custom thumbnails, that's all.
After this maybe some optical corrections. For what? Only for me. Nobody is interested in my website.

I tried the script of Rod - no function, no button.

Top 5px - logical worked, thanks.
The other values fade in and out I know.

Now it is late and I will try the other tomorrow.

I don't need it, but I want to know what I have to change, that the arrow up icon is displayed constantly.
It disappears every time when I scroll up. (Edit: fixed, I think cache problem on iPad Safari).
I tried to change my phplugin.php but I didn't find any solution.

Z-index 5 was the solution.
Once again something learned.

Thanks Rod

Tried it, but the icon is in the background of top pallet. Will try it with html in masthead.


#12 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Font awesome icon in top pallet » 2019-08-24 00:08:25

Adding new icon. Button scroll to top, because I changed all to iconic design and top pallet is now enabled.

That's the error. I am ashamed.


#15 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Footer font-size » 2019-08-22 04:55:05

Custom.css is pangolin_test.css

I am changing my site to iconic style.


Edit: @Rod: Added it to the end.

#16 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Footer font-size » 2019-08-22 01:31:52

I have tried this - it does not works.


Edit: maybe there is a conflict in my css file. Could not find it.

At time I am on holiday.
I am changing my website to iconic view.
Of course now, all thumbnails of the album sets are in a poor quality.
All thumbs are in the _custom thumbnails folder. I changed the size in the template to 512 px.
Is it necessary to upload them once again too with Lightroom?
The original images in this folder are about over 1000 px.

#22 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Fancybox view - share buttons » 2019-08-17 15:59:45

Oh Rod, I am stupid and had forgotten this.
I have found the second clamp some day ago and I thought, that this is an error of mine, so I have deleted it.

Never change a running system roll


#23 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Fancybox view - share buttons » 2019-08-17 07:12:26

But this media query is for the metadata. Don't know what you mean. I never changed the pangolin.css since over a year and it works correct. Some days ago I noticed the error.


#24 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Fancybox view - share buttons » 2019-08-17 07:02:01


I have known that you will help me.

Thank you very much. Now I am no longer angry.
Greetings from my holiday in the Netherlands.

Hi, in my custom css I have had this code to hide the share buttons:

li.share-twitter {
    display: none;

But after some Backlight updates they are all visible again. Whatˋs the new code I need?

Thanks, Rainer


Edit: It's curious, on mobile mode, the share buttons are not visible, only Google Maps.
What is the different to desktop mode?


Edit: What has changed in the code? My scroll to top arrow, placed since over a year in the right bottom edge is now in the left bottom in desktop view. I didn't change the website since 1 year. In mobile mode, the arrow is at the right position!

??? I am angry!!! (Edit: of me - it was my mistake - see Rods las post) roll


CSS Code for Scroll to Top:

.btn-scroll-to-top {
    background-color: transparent;
    display: none;
    position: fixed;
    bottom: 5px;
    right: 5px;
    border: 1px solid;
    height: 32px;
    width: 32px;
    border-radius: 50%;
    text-align: center;
    line-height: 29px;
    vertical-align: middle;
    text-decoration: none;

.btn-scroll-to-top:hover {
    text-decoration: none;

a.btn-scroll-to-top {
    z-index: 3;

Board footer
