Your page is served as part of a frameset:


  <title>Photographs Now</title>  
  <meta name="description" content="">
  <meta name="keywords" content="">
<frameset rows="100%,*" border="0">
  <frame src="" frameborder="0" />


I think to remember that this is not supported.

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


If you add it to your custom.css, we might be able to help.

Still not working. Here's what it looks like on my Home Page: I did everything both of you suggested but I don't know how to check to see which template the Galleries page is using. I set the Page Template to Backlight Standard page. I tried finding the Galleries Template in Backlight and couldn't find it. I tried finding it in lightroom In Publish Services>TTG Publisher>Art Party Tuesdays and was not give an option to choose Backlight Standard Page. Where can I find the template that the Galleries page is using?
Is it possible the problem has to do with the Default Template under Page Templates under Templates.  The type now reads Pangolin Page and it is the default. It seems to  me it should read Backlight Standard Page. If so, I don't know how to change the default to Backlight Standard page.

Looks like your home page shows an album and an album-set. Disable the album on your page. It is just above where you selected the album-set.

#6 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Make my home page look like my gallery page » 2019-08-20 22:24:28

Backlight > Designer > Pages > Home > Design > Insert Album Set: Select Galleries. That should do the trick.

And your custom.css has two problems... There is a space between a dot and the class name and the media query is not closed.

Hi Daniel
I re-downloaded backlight, cart & theatre as they where all slightly older versions.
(I never got the emails for the new versions)
Got a email from Bluehost last night saying they had completely revamped the Bluehost interface.
Everything is working great now.


#10 Re: Backlight Support » Catastrophic Blacklight Failure » 2019-08-09 18:14:34

Anyway, please redownload backlight. Just use the link you have to get the latest version. Ben did some updates to fix PHP version issues.

If this helps, the server's error log writes:

You need to upgrade your albums. There is an 'upgrade album' link in the backlight admin main page.

#12 Re: Backlight 2 Support » What Does this mean? » 2019-08-06 02:49:20

For you, Pierre, and please don't take this personally, I would recommend to do your work on the web in a subdomain or a subdirectory so others can have a look. When you encounter issues in a MAMP/WAMP setting, it is very difficult to help.

#13 Re: Backlight 2 Support » moving from okapi to Pangolin » 2019-08-05 20:13:40

Pangolin is the way to go to get the latest features. AFAIK, there is no further development going on with Okapi, apart fixes to issues.

1) yes. If you do mix and match, you want to design the new Pangolin templates to match the Okapi format.

2) yes

3) This is not really a move. The only thing you change is the template assignment for the album sets and albums. The used template can be either changed in the Backlight backend or in Lightroom Publisher Album Settings. In case you change the image sizes, specially going for bigger thumbnails or images, you would need to republish all images from Lightroom. Otherwise, changing the template is all you need to do.

Unable to write to backlight/modules. Make sure that this directory can be writen to by the server.

I've seen some references to putting the Backlight files in a directly called /public_html but when I've tried this, the website isn't found.

The folder name is host specific. It might be /public_html, /htdocs/, or something else. You can see this in your host's cpanel where the domain is mapped onto a directory.

I'm wondering why, then, the path to the installer isn't: http://localhost:8888/nathaliemoliavko-visotzky/backlight/installer/

You can define the root directory for your server to be ..../sites/nathaliemoliavkovisotzky. Then you get to this directory with http://localhost:8888.

Pierre, it seems like you have installed the backlight files in a directory called backlight. The easiest is to change the MAMP server (Preferences > Web Server > Document Root) to point the root directory like ..../sites/nathaliemoliavkovisotzky/backlight.

Markus wrote:

Good morning,

I'm just desperately trying to get some panoramas on the test page Testsite Panorama

I can adjust the height via Presentation Height in the chapter Panorama.
But I don't manage to adjust the width yet. I guess I haven't found the corresponding setting yet.

Max-width for Presentation is 1140 px

A change under Image Renditions | Photos | Width has no effect.

BTW: What are the settings for thumbnails and photos for?

I am happy about tips

Best regards

The width restrictions come from your custom.css:

.the__gallery figure {
    width: 240px;

#18 Re: Backlight Support » Create galley with sections/headers » 2019-07-25 16:03:38

Hi Keith,

One option would be to use search to help display a subset of images.

You can see an example on my page at … a/sail-gp/. All images are in one gallery, but I added the thumbnail strip where one can search images of one particular team. The images are searched by keywords, which is something you could add with Photomechanic.

Another approach is using phplugins. With Backlight 2 you get access to the entire image gallery structure. You could then display only images based on certain metadata. This approach would better match your current gallery, but the implementation would require quite a bit of coding.

You don't need admin access to update from Backlight to Backlight 2. All you need is ftp access to your server.

It looks like Release 7 is the latest. Just use the last link you have to download the latest version.

Should I upgrade to Backlight 2?

I like Backlight 2. Many things such as upgrades are so much easier. If you can, I definitely would recommend to upgrade.

#22 Re: Backlight Support » No access to Backlight frontend nor backend » 2019-07-23 00:54:04

Are you using the latest version of Backlight? I would download the modules again and install them to see if this fixes the issue.

The reason for this message is most likely a PHP version change done by your host.

This site, built at the same time and it still works.

This site is based on CE3.

The issue you are having is a PHP version change. You can log into your host's admin panel and change the PHP version to an older one. Or, as Ben has pointed out, download the latest Backlight version AGAIN** and install it. Then the site will work again. No changes are needed.

** I is important that you download it again since there were some under-the-hood changes to fix, among others, the issue you are currently seeing.

#24 Re: Backlight 2 Support » What Does this mean? » 2019-07-18 04:19:09

The reason for the error is most likely a change in the php version done by your host.

I think this site is running backlight 1. If this is the case, install the latest backlight 1 modules.

Even so, I'm seeing warnings in Safari for iOS and I'm getting warnings from Kaspersky on my desktop PC. If I'm seeing it, could be others will too. I don't know why warnings like this pop up but thought you'd want to know.

Both Chrome and Safari on the Mac show a valid certificate.
