Trying to update my modules though Backlight.  Running 2.0.7 want to update to 2.0.9. 
Tried to just use "update all" I get the following error message.

The module was not installed: Class not found: ZipArchive. To fix this, reinstall Backlight at /backlight/installer. If the problem persists, please report error at http://community.theturninggate.net/viewforum.php?id=44

Tried to ftp the new files still get this message.  can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
Thom

#2 Backlight Showcase » Final revision of Backlight site » 2019-03-25 23:18:37

I've gotten to a final version of my site completed  ( www.hookephoto.com )  through lots of trial and error.  Most of the problems I've experienced are problems I  myself created by over complicating things.  The beauty and simplicity of Backlight really is something to embrace.  Thanks to all the people who have contributed to this forum and the wonderful advice of Ben, Rod and others too many to thank on this site.  Since I view my photography and my site as a constantly evolving art please leave any comments to improve so I can continue to grow.

Kudos to the backlight Community  !!!!!!

#4 Re: General » To Lightroom or not to Lightroom » 2018-10-20 00:44:59

Please build that standalone program,  I'm becoming more and more frustrated with Lightroom and refuse to pay 10.00/month to Adobe.!!!!!

I've made the switch to Affinity and find it far superior.

Thanks Rod!  I didn't either just thought it might be someplace I wasn't looking or Backlight uses some other php to send notifications.

I recently was notified by Paypal that my "IPNs sent to the following URL(s) are failing: http://www.hookephoto.com/ipn_main_handler.php "

when I look at this with BBEdit it's an old zen cart ipn handler.  Since working with TTG (Which is the BEST!!!!) I haven't used the zen cart or any other cart, other than TTG.  I would like to delete it but does Backlight use an ipn_main_handler.php? if so where is it? if not I will delete.

thanks for helping

#9 Re: Backlight Support » cart popup doesn't load » 2018-04-19 08:59:00

your right it is running php   "Current PHP version:  7.1 "

#10 Re: Backlight Support » cart popup doesn't load » 2018-04-19 08:51:40

that's correct I have the latest releases of backlight and cart.  I actually reloaded the latest cart module after deleting it.  not sure about the php 7.1.14  i'm on godaddy who knows lol. 

I never saw an error message the page just doesn't load.  It used too.  Not sure when it stopped.

thanks

the cart button does work on each image;  for instance  [  http://www.hookephoto.com/brides/wed/quee/ ]  however when I add to cart, then go to the cart to checkout I don't see the checkout page.  Do you?  I have tried this on three browsers, cleared caches, reset cart to no avail.  I don't know when this started.  I loaded a portrait session up for a recent client and randomly checked the cart. 

Thank you

Not sure what I've done but after adding photos to the cart the checkout cart popup doesn't load.  I've reloaded the cart module,  This was working great like all the TTG products.  I must have thrown a switch or something somehow?

here is my error

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-20 07:21:23

My Problem rose its ugly head again.  after working on it again I decided to put the backlight plugin on an older computer not running Sierra and LR 6.10.  (LR 4)  Worked like a champ.  My main computer still will not load images.  When I have a spare few days I plan on going back in time and putting an older OS on my system.  see if that clears things up.  I'll report back if there are any useful changes.

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-10 09:44:28

I think I have found the problem.  because of my three distinct specialties I have backlight running separately  on the same server, in three locations(folders)  one of the API's had a different API Key.  Changing it seems to have gotten the website running again. 

Thom

#15 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-09 10:26:36

As of this writing, I started a new site again.  Downloaded all ttg software and uploaded them to new site.  created album sets. then realized I needed to have the API set so I went into Backlight/publisher and set that up, went back to lightroom and was able to upload all images into three distinct albums in the album set, as was the original plan.  went back to  Backlight a happy camper and worked on the styling of the site.  uploaded my template and css from previous versions.  Stopped closed up Backlight went to do some other work, ate dinner, came back 2 hours later and now unable to connect to the net with L/R in TTG Publisher.  thumbnails are small should be 512-pixels.

Very frustrated  - 3 weeks lost - can't fix it - what to do?

#16 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-09 00:46:16

Still working on this problem.  As an update;  I've deleted the website exporting the template, CSS and phpplugins. deleted the TTG Plugin reloaded a new copy.  I now can't connect with the TTG Plugin on any of my websites.  I can connect to FB and Insta through L/R publishing module.

The plugin manage says "the plugin is enabled but has experienced some problems"

error message  from diagnostic log;
Plug-in error log for plug-in at: /Users/user/Documents/Lightroom Plugins/TTG-Publisher.lrplugin

**** Error 1

This plug-in’s post-processing task did not finish successfully.
Could not connect to network.  You need to be online to use TTG Publisher.



Does this ring any bells?

thanks for your help

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-07 01:52:10

Thank you Charlie  It did solve an issue i've had since reinstalling the LR of viewport sizer not working which is nice but I still have the inability to update or publish new photos.  I will remember that for future.

On another detail,  I've called Adobe today and their telling me its not them because facebook and instagram work.  They think it's Godaddy.    I called Godaddy and they say it's The Plugin.  One problem is that they can't check the script for the API if I was using FTP they can check that.  I can upload through Fetch so that's not an issue. 

Still perplexed.

Thom

#18 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-07 00:15:29

I tried deleting The previews several times and restarting lightroom.  Still same error messages.  Adobe has now been three weeks working on this and no resolution.  Very frustrating.  If you can think of anything else to try please let me know  I'm at a loss as to what to do.  Even if its drastic would be better.

Thank you for all your help

#19 Re: Backlight Support » Lightroom error » 2017-06-02 22:14:21

Thanks for getting back to me,  I really appreciate your suggestions!!!  You guys are awesome!!

I have renamed the images in Lightroom as is customary in my work-flow, I even deleted these and used the originals .nef's that I always store offline.  After importing a few (100 or so) I put them in a separate folder in my Library/Collections in LR  same thing.  Files are intact no errors and reside on computer ( open in finder, preview and PS).  Tried to sync and optimize  - nothing,  deleted cache. 


I tried to upload a wedding selects from another job I shot last weekend to the older part of the site it gave me the rendering error also.  So now it seems that this is something with only new images?  All images are shot on the same d3 and d4 camera. 

I just deleted all plugins except TTG  and tried to update the publisher.  I now get  this message;  "Could not connect to network.  You need to be online to use TTG Publisher."  This a message I have gotten in the past. 

I'm deleting the previews now  I had both smart and standard.  Do you think LR was confused ?  I will update you after rebuilding.

I wrote in some months ago about this error message.  It resolved itself after deleting and re-added them back.  in updating more recent event photos i can't upload the images.  I get the same error;  "The rendition could not be created.  Please ensure that the original file name is accessible, especially when stored on external or network storage."   The images are all on the same laptop.  I've updated the LR program, The IOS - Sierra 10.12.5  Safari.  I've tried reinstalling LR, downloading the plugin and reinstalling it.  I can publish to the older parts of my website that is not running the cart.  My facebook plug in doesn't work either.  I've contacted Adobe they tell me a technician is working on it and they will get back to me (over 1 week and waiting).  I've contacted Godaddy they have said there is nothing blocking the upload on their end and it is timing out.  I'm at a loss as where to turn?  any suggestions from here? My Api seems to be working.

How do I put the API key in the equine/backlight/publisher folder?  so the  API url and the key are connected?

I have done this with my wedding business and the commercial side, to good success.  Now I'm trying to add events and use the cart feature.

I didn't reinstall backlight but I did reinstall the module-cart to ../equine/backlight/modules/

When I try to publish a photo to a new gallery It goes into the root  "../galleries"  not the subdirectory ../equine/galleries

They both have backlight folders in them. 

I have tried to separate my three different markets by using sub-directories.

yes;
  It was working for awhile yesterday,  then in all my changes, i'm wondering if I need to re-point the program to the subdirectory? I had deleted the publisher for the galleries and when I went to recreate the album sets with the new subdirectory I lost the template "Cart"  I'm only showing the backlight standard and theater.  I used to have cart and not theater.
