Re: problem viewing galleries

Hi Choke, your entire site can't be reached.   It looks like your domain either isn't registered or the DNS not yet propagated.
Is this a new domain?

Re: problem viewing galleries

actually: backlight.choke.se

and it gets redirected to http://www.choke.se/Test/

is Landskap a top-level gallery folder?
If so, have you published to it from Lightroom yet? If not, you need to do so.
In your menu, is Landskap linked to an album set? It should be.

Re: problem viewing galleries

Will try to explain my "strange" set up:-)
Created a sub-domein backlift.choke.se that is redirected to to www.choke.se/Test/

I then creatd a Meny Set named it to "landskap" and linked it to Url landskap/ - but now I changed it to a Album -not Album Set.
Now the menu Set "landskap" is working.

But the link Galleries under the Menu Set is not working - think I got something wrong.

Under my choke.se/Test/ I got /galleries and /landskap and /backligt

Re: problem viewing galleries

I then creatd a Meny Set named it to "landskap" and linked it to Url landskap/ - but now I changed it to a Album -not Album Set.
Now the menu Set "landskap" is working.

A menu set is a set of navigation links to be assigned to a page template. I don't know if this is what you're talking about.

On your site you have a menu item named "landskap" when I click on that I go to an album which currently has two images. the Landskap album was created in the galleries/ folder.

It looks like in your Menu Set you've assigned the Galleries page to the url: /galleries/album


Under my choke.se/Test/ I got /galleries and /landskap and /backligt

If you're aim is to have two top-level gallery pages, then this should work. To make landskap into an album set all you need to do is create the folder and leave it empty.
Then go to Lightroom and create another Publisher instance and aim it as "landskap". Then simply publish an album to it. Backlight will automatically create the album set for "landskape" and publish the album.

Re: problem viewing galleries

Thank´s Rod!

You always so helpful.
Ok now I understand the difference between meu itam and galleries.
I will fix that - thanks.

But I have one small problem - the link on the meny set "Galleries" are working fine -but when you to the page Galleries there is a link to Galleries in the Copy Page (hope I got the right names here) but that links go to wrong folder.
Do you have a idea about that?

Re: problem viewing galleries

in your Menu Set, what is the Galleries page linked to? It should be linked to the Galleries album set
