Your html code is not complete:

   <a href="/?language=fr"></a>

The French language links is missing a name. Did you assign a name in the language editor? It should look like this in the generated code

   <a href="/?language=fr">Fran&ccedil;ais</a>

#2 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Breadcrumbs » Yesterday 17:39:10

I use ttg_crumbs to add breadcrumbs to regular pages to provide a more consistent look. More about this at … hp?id=8430

Just having ttg_crumbs() in your phplugins file doesn't do anything since it has to be called from main_top.

Did you enable it? It works on my test site.

Since your site is already up and running, I understand and agree that there is little incentive to change that.

Do you have a screen capture?

Did your host change the PHP version by any chance? I would contact them to check their php installation.

I do not know how the multi language support works. Maybe for images but not for different websites with a lot of text. Do you understand what I mean?

Yeah, I do. It is a bit trickier with a lot of text, but if you follow the link I provided, you see the concept.

You can encapsulate entire sections with divs

<div data-lang="en">English content...


<div data-lang="de">Deutscher Inhalt...


<div data-lang="fr">Contenu en Francais...

This works perfect, but not in Safari MacOS I wrote. Only this is my problem.

I can jump between the different languages using Safari MacOS as I can do with the other browsers. I don't see any difference. This seem to work for me. This is with Safari 12.0.1 on MacOS Mojave.

It behaves the same for Chrome, Safari and Firefox. What is the expected behavior?

BTW, Backlight 2 now support multi language support. This enables one to switch between two versions of the same page. More at … ge_support

#9 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Problem with Menu Bar » 2018-12-14 02:07:36

Hi Rainer,

Your code only has one sub-item:

<li class="menu-item menu-item-has-children"><a href="/home_e.php">English </a>
   <ul class="sub-menu">
      <li class="menu-item"><a href="/home_f.php">Française</a></li>

Going to your homepage, I get following error

Something went wrong
Unable to find index page.

Did you delete index.php?

I replaced those files, and did an update on the index files and the album files, and the galleries are now working. My "about" and "contact" pages are not.

It looks like you are upgrading from CE4. Do you have files such as contact.php, about.php etc in your home directory? If yes, they need to be removed, but don't delete index.php ;-)

You might want to run "Update Album Files". This can be found under "Special Links" in the Backlight admin dashboard.

Just noticed that if I change the width in

.page__pallet__top {
    background-image: url("");
    background-repeat: no-repeat;
    width: 1440px;
    height: 50px;

The whole Top pallet changes size, but not the logo! Is it because the logo is a background? Why isn't the top pallet responsive when the logo is applied to it?

When both the CSS and the PHP are turned off, the top pallet (with the navigation) is responsive. But alas, no logo.

Well, you are setting the size of .page__pallet__top and not the size of the background image. That's why you break the responsive behavior! To set the background image size, please see … d-size.asp.

Oh, thank you. But it is not possible under the masthead? It would be nice to scroll down and after a short scroll up the navigation bar will appear, also below the masthead.


I like this idea! Have a look at … scroll.asp, it shows a solution using a combination of CSS and JavaScript.

I am setting up a second Backlight site. Halfway through I realized I should have copied the old site and just removed the galleries. I just hit the localization issue...

I would start again with your second BL site. But first export the new templates you have already created. Then use the BL data directory from your first install as a starting point. I think that's easier than having to work directly on the database files.

What exactly do you mean by this statement? Do you have a link to illustrate what you mean?

There are no albums in a blog like you have on the main BL2 powered sight.

#16 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Publishing errors reappear with a vengeance » 2018-11-27 02:06:46

To upload images to my blog, I use the Wordpress media manager. This doesn't use BL2 Publisher nor Lightroom.

#17 Re: Backlight 2 Support » Album set image position » 2018-11-25 01:44:08

I'm looking at this page:

The custom css you use is not correct

div#albums {
{ <--------
    position: left;
    left: 30px;
    border: 3px solid #73AD21;

You have two opening brackets. That's why your CSS is not working.

To only address this page and not affect all other albums, I would use

.slug-extracts .albums {
    margin-left: 20px;

Can you share a link to the page that shows your Vegas slideshow? Thanks!

#21 Re: Backlight 2 Support » One page (gallery) » 2018-11-17 00:37:59

So you continue to do separate Backlight installations?

That was true yesterday, but I added the thumbnails to all the galleries last night.  Could you please clear your cache and check again?  If you find any that do not have a thumbnail, I would really appreciate a specific pointer.  I just went through them all here on Firefox (which I clear cache on frequently, and use only for tests like this), and every gallery set I saw had a thumbnail.

That's not a cache issue... There is no thumbnail:

<figure itemscope itemtype="">
	<div class="content">

	<a href="">

		<figcaption itemprop="caption description">
			<p class="album-title">04-Travel</p>



#23 Re: Backlight 2 Support » BL2 Menu Not Showing on iPhone » 2018-11-16 09:28:34

I would design a dedicated menu-set for mobile that uses a simpler structure. First I would design this alternative menu in Backlight (create a new menu-set for that!), then copy the generated source code that is enclosed by the nav divs:

<div id="page__pallet__T1" class="page__column page__pallet" data-position="T1">
	<div class="content clearfix">

<nav class="nav nav_v">
   ... menu code


Then use this code in your phplugins file:

function pallet01_top () {
  echo '
<nav class="nav nav_v">
   ... menu code

   return true;

And then obviously you need to revert your site back to the original menu and disable the mobile menu. Now the mobile menu will be provided by phplugins. I think that this is the easiest way to have a different custom menu for mobile.

BTW, if you go to /gallery, you will notice that some of the gallery-sets don't have thumbnails.
