Previous post: I edited your reply to show the 'code' section.

Indeed, the background is controlled by lucnade.css, but the background-color section is not commented and has a different color to the one you showed above. Looks like you are looking at a different file. Have a look at /luc/backlight/custom/css/lucnade.css

        .pages-template-identifier-expos .the__copy>.content ,
        .pages-template-identifier-exhibitions .the__copy>.content {
		background-color: #A607A3; 
		border-radius: 0;
		box-shadow:2px 2px 8px #000000;
		width: 100%;
		max-width: 1440px;
		padding: 50px;
		font-size: 1.25rem;
		color: black;
	}

The path to the CSS should be "/luc/backlight/custom/css/lucnade.css". And then you should disable the CSS file specified in Backlight too.

#4 Re: Backlight Support » Vegas slide show discrepancies » 2018-04-22 08:36:10

As shown in my previous response, you can have several selectors using the same CSS statements:

	.pages-template-identifier-expos .the__copy>.content ,
	.pages-template-identifier-exhibitions .the__copy>.content {
		background-color: #A607A3;
		border-radius: 0;
		box-shadow:2px 2px 8px #000000;
		width: 100%;
		max-width: 1440px;
		padding: 50px;
		font-size: 1.25rem;
		color: black;
	}	

Here you use the same CSS code for your french 'expo' page and the english 'exhibitions' page. You can do exactly the same for your en/theater and en/gallery-theater pages. So it is not necessary to have the same identifiers, although that might be helpful.

BTW, the image size doesn't look to make an obvious difference.

#5 Re: Backlight Support » Vegas slide show discrepancies » 2018-04-22 07:30:57

In the future, it would be helpful if you include links that show the issue. Currently, I'm looking at http://pideja.ca/luc/en/Gallery-theater/ and http://pideja.ca/luc/fr/theater/. Hope this is correct!

1) The size of the english images are 600x800 and the french are 450x600. So not exactly the same.
2) The css is not the same either.... and this is where the issue is coming from. I strongly would advocate you to use ONE common CSS. Rod already showed you how to do it. PLEASE do this now.

In the french CSS, you have

	 .pages-template-identifier-expos .the__copy>.content {
		.pages-template-identifier-exhibitions .the__copy>.content {
		background-color: #A607A3;
		border-radius: 0;
		box-shadow:2px 2px 8px #000000;
		width: 100%;
		max-width: 1440px;
		padding: 50px;
		font-size: 1.25rem;
		color: black;
	}	

but it should be

	.pages-template-identifier-expos .the__copy>.content ,
	.pages-template-identifier-exhibitions .the__copy>.content {
		background-color: #A607A3;
		border-radius: 0;
		box-shadow:2px 2px 8px #000000;
		width: 100%;
		max-width: 1440px;
		padding: 50px;
		font-size: 1.25rem;
		color: black;
	}	

And with this code change, the CSS will work for both sites smile

#6 Re: Backlight Support » exporting-importing and installing templates » 2018-04-20 21:13:43

The custom.css files seem to differ... Is there a reason why you are not using the same for the two sites?

Hi Thomas,

I just copied the code from the Backlight generated CSS and didn't even pay that much attention to it... Otherwise I would have changed it to a fixed location. So please upload your image to something like /backlight/custom/pics/background.jpg. This way it doesn't break once you make a change in your design.

#10 Re: Backlight Support » Can't seem to get breadcrumbs working for non-gallery pangolin pages » 2018-04-12 07:01:16

Hi Tom,

I forgot that Backlight puts everything possible into one CSS file. But this CSS file is template AND module specific. So the CSS for a page is different than that for an Album Set. That's why your background image is reloaded.

But, you could disable the background image in your page template and add following code it to your custom.css:

.background__image 
{
	background-attachment: scroll;
	background-image: url('http://ttg-test.tomswarbirds.com/backlight/designer/?c=page&a=image&p1=10&433');
	background-position: center center;
	background-repeat: repeat;
	background-size: contain;
}

Since the custom.css file is identical for all your pages and galleries, your background image is only downloaded once and then afterwards served from the cache.

I've had Backlight and predecessors running on a Gen-0 rPi for years.  (Gen-0 being my name for the 256MB of RAM model that the ''lucky' early adopters were lumped with).
It runs pretty well on Nginx, but without .htaccess rewriting.  If I'm not wrong, I had CE3 running on a jailbroken iPod touch smile

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Mobile View for 2-Column Page w/ Menu » 2018-04-09 02:57:15

Have a look at http://backlight.danielleu.com/workshop. It is really easy to do and with some custom CSS you can get the look and feel you want.

<div class="grid_12"> 
	<div class="col_9">  
		<h2>Workshop XYZ</h2>
		Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,....
	</div>

	<div class="col_3" >  
		<h3>More Infos</h3>
		Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet,... 
	</div>
</div>

And the custom.css:

@media screen and (min-width: 1024px) {	
	.slug-workshop .col_3 {
		box-shadow: -3px 0 3px -2px rgba(0,0,0,0.65);
	}
}

I use the slug 'workshop' for the workshop page. This way I can easily target my CSS for just this page and not affect anything else.

#15 Re: Backlight Support » og image » 2018-04-09 02:13:13

That's my understanding, and you would need to assign the cover image in the album settings.

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Mobile View for 2-Column Page w/ Menu » 2018-04-08 03:24:55

Hmmm... this sounds tricky.

I would create your two columns using the the responsive grid. The desktop look would remain the same. But on mobile, each column would take the entire width of the page and your sub menu would appear after the main text. Since it contains the price of your workshop, users will scroll down the page to look for this info and find all your other links.

#18 Re: Backlight Support » og image » 2018-04-07 02:55:19

AFAIK, og:image is automatically set on album and album-set pages. It is set as well on regular pages as long as it contains an embedded gallery. There was discussion about this a while ago, but I can't find the thread. If you would like to have og:image populated on regular pages, you just have to include a gallery. If you assign a thumbnail, then I think it would not need to contain any images and therefore it is not visible.

#19 Re: Backlight Support » Can't seem to get breadcrumbs working for non-gallery pangolin pages » 2018-04-05 13:45:21

Tom, a little observation: your background image on the test site loads very slowly and seems to be used on many pages. But since you use different templates, the image is loaded again and again and doesn't take advantage of caching. I would recommend to check 1) why you have so many different templates and 2) if you could make the background image a bit smaller. The file is 1.9MB. Since this is only for the background, a smaller size and decreased quality settings would be appropriate. Just my two cents!

I know there is a global way to change the default size of the body font. I have my own css, and I tried changing the size in the Body portion of it with no success.  Also, the site does not display the ghost background I would prefer:

Code in css:

body {
    background-image: http://www.BCphotoadventures.com/Images … eghost.gif;
    background-attachment: fixed;
    font-family: Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif;
    font-size: 10pt;
    color: #002730;
}

Where have I once again gone astray?

Many thanks, as always,

The format for background image is

body {
   background-image: url("paper.gif");
   background-color: #cccccc;
}

Regarding the font size, I would recommend to change it in Backlight. I don't know the text element you would like to change with 'body font'. There are many places on your site that have an increased specificity and therefore your body font size doesn't apply.

I have created Actions in Photoshop for each copyright year, and all I have to do is click on the appropriate button.  I don't find it a pain, as I only need it for exporting, and then I save it and send it along to the desired destination. For me, it is worth the extra 30 seconds or less to do it. And if I have a whole bunch of images to do, I do the same-year ones, batch process in PS, then go to the next year.

Take care,

So after the Ps action, you re-import the image in Lr so you can use Publisher? Do you do any image resizing when you export the image? Thanks!

And I should add, and this drives me nuts, Mac computers strip file names and all metadata when you send an image out through their email program. Apple should know better, and it is irresponsible of them to not inform Mac users of this, so beware. If you are a Mac owner, be sure to send your images out through a regular e-mail program (gmail, etc.) that uses the paper-clip feature to attach an image to your message.

Take care,

Not for me! The Mail tool on my Mac preserves all metadata. This is with Sierra.

This rings a bell. I think this has been fixed in the latest update. Are you using the latest version?
