You may be able to edit the file yourself. I've not tested it.

It looks like the file to edit might be backlight\modules\pangolin-album\dynamic\js\fancybox.cfg.php

You can find Fancybox Options documentation here:

And it looks like the code to add will look like this, only with your own numbers:

slideShow : {
		autoStart : false,
		speed     : 4000

I'm not sure where you would add that in the file. Maybe at the beginning of the section marked with:

     * +Fancybox Gallery

perhaps right before the animationEffect: setting.

Oops, didn't realize that it was not a Vegas slideshow question....

Rainer, once you edit the file Rod pointed to, you will most likely need to clear the template cache (Designer -> Special Links -> Clear Template Cache)

Yes, it is called 'slide delay' and it is part of the Vegas slideshow section.

I would start like Mark with exporting your brother's images. Then I would try a different approach: duplicate your existing catalog and open it, then remove everything but your brother's images and publishing service(s). At the end update the image folder location. This way you should be able to preserve the Publisher services and existing albums. But if you have only a few albums, Mark's approach might be the fastest.

And before starting, make a backup of _everything_ just in case a wrong click on something needs to be reversed.

#4 Re: Backlight Support » drop down menu items with a line break? » 2017-08-15 01:51:24

I played a bit with the css inspector. To get the two lines, first, I think, you need to change block to inline-block:

nav li > a, nav li > span {
    display: inline-block;}

Next, the line height needs to be adjusted

nav a, nav span {
    height: 44px;
    line-height: 44px;

If the line-height is identical to the item height, you can't get two lines to show.... But this change should only target your 2-line menu items.

Oh, on mobile menu, your 'new' doesn't show up, neither does Ireland. So either you make your menu wider or shorten the length of menu items.

And I would try to not to use so many !importants in your css file. It is better to find the correct selector to overwrite the default assignment. But yeah, that's not always easy to do nor possible.

Just my 2 cents.

A couple of more things.  I should have said that I haven't yet upgraded to 1.2.

Please upgrade! 1.2 introduced Pangolin based modules, but all previously designed pages and galleries will continue to work using the okapi framework. So there is nothing to worry about. But it makes it easier to get help.

Thanks Daniel, I should have caught that.

Somehow it works on your site, but didn't on mine.

Sorry, I assumed you are already on Backlight Pangolin. For the previous version it is photoswipe.

#9 Re: Backlight Support » Lost ability to tweet image ? » 2017-08-13 05:35:17

The links on the top-right of your page are the global social links that link to your social profiles. They are not intent to be used to share the content of a single-image page.

Charlie added what you are looking for using phplugins: … 028#p48028. Although you are not a coder, please give it a try. Once you enable phplugins, enable custom.css at the same time. If you run into questions regarding styling, the good folks on this forum will be able to help you.

#10 Re: Backlight Support » Get image URL (jpg) » 2017-08-13 05:31:42

Charlie, there was a missing '/' in the link. I fixed it in the code you posted.

#12 Re: General » How can I use something like a demonstration website » 2017-08-13 04:35:44

In your Album template, change the photo presentation type from "Single image pages" to "Slideshow".

#13 Re: Backlight Support » Make the footer text & the slideshow title/caption size bigger? » 2017-08-13 02:33:54

BTW, your site looks great, Mike! Love how you designed it.

For the full-screen slideshow, I would disable the masthead and the social icons. To me, they conflict with the nice images.

#14 Re: Backlight Support » Make the footer text & the slideshow title/caption size bigger? » 2017-08-13 02:22:03

Do you have more than one CSS file? The custom css you are using (/backlight/custom/css/best-border-drop-shadow.css) doesn't contain Rainer's code.

#16 Re: Backlight Support » Get image URL (jpg) » 2017-08-12 08:31:17

Hey Charlie, would you mind to share your code that you came up with? Thank you!

#17 Re: Backlight Support » Lost ability to tweet image ? » 2017-08-12 08:27:42

What Rod wrote doesn't apply to single-image pages.

You know when they say "a little knowledge can be dangerous".
Just how volatile is the data base.
I am going to have to be very careful with that little bit that you gave today.... 

Thanks again!!!


So make a copy of the file before you edit it.... so you have something to revert back in case.... happy editing smile

#19 Re: Backlight Support » Slideshow in masthead » 2017-08-10 01:34:20

It looks like they only have the slideshow on their home page. You can design this using the inline vegas slideshow. And for the main copy text, you would select "below the gallery" as the location.

#20 Re: General » Bluehost Site Backup & Restore » 2017-08-09 05:55:27

Personally, I prefer to take care of the backup myself. And with Backlight, it is sufficient to backup the backlight/data and backlight/custom folders. For convenience, I backup the entire backlight directory. In case of an issue, I can republish all the images from Lr. Obviously, there is a separate backup for my wordpress blog.

So for me, the basic Bluehost account works well.

No matter what the size of the thumbnail?

Yes. It just defines the shape of a cell in the grid. But the thumbnail should be big enough to cover the effective size of the cell in the grid.

#22 Re: Backlight Support » ttg_footer_top (pangolin v1.2.2) » 2017-07-30 15:12:21

Found the issue! The original copyright notice is still embedded in the page but there is a "height: 0;" that I had overwritten with my css.

You need to disable the Bottom Pallet/Copyright in Designer > Footer.
The new structure has the footer div separate from the bottom pallet div.

I did already disable this, but the copyright notice persisted.

The current implementation doesn't really make sense in having both ttg_footer_top and ttg_footer_bottom as they are called one after the other and ttg_footer_top does disable any code.

I wanted to make a change in my blog posts by having the previous and next post buttons at the top of the post. Yet when I go into Backlight > Templates > Theme Templates, there is no temple to modify.

How did you try to make this change? Did you create a Wordpress child theme?

According to phplugins-pangolin-sample.php:

 *    ttg_footer_top
 *      - if return=false, the contents of the normal Backlight footer are skipped
 *      - called immediately within the footer section
 *      - encompasses the full contents of the footer section; can be used to replace those contents

When using return=false, the content of the backlight default footer should be skipped. This isn't the case for me. Does this work for anyone else? Thanks!
