Keyword searching in Backlight

Hi,

I have about 30,000 images to publish that have keywords.  I would like a Lightroom controlled website that allows metadata searching on the client side.  I'm having a hard time determining if this possible using some combination of Backlight addons.  I am a satisfied TTG customer but am hesitant to upgrade until I sure the new Backlight will meet my needs.

Re: Keyword searching in Backlight

This is from the CE4 docs but it applies to Backlight as well
http://ce4.theturninggate.net/docs/doku … ith_search

The search feature is global to the site available for all regular albums (albums can be hidden from search).
Client Respons albums are not searchable.

Thanks Rod, I assume that the search feature works with the shopping cart Gallery.
Thanks

Re: Keyword searching in Backlight

Yes, as long as the album template used for search is cart enabled
