Album order in Album Set

Under CE4, in order to force the various albums in a set into a specific order, I prepended the slug with "001-", "002-", etc.  I have done that in Backlight, but the slug name now does not seem to effect the order.  In the following example, the 007b Album displays before the 001 Album on the website

galleries
003- route-66
     001-route-66-illinois
     007b-cars-of-route-66
         classics
         close-ups
         oldies-but-goodies
         thumbnails
         trucks-and-busses
         unique
     thumbnails
air-show-luke-afb
antelope-canyon

Is there a way to control the order in Backlight Album Sets?

Re: Album order in Album Set

check the order settings in each respective album set. make sure it's set to slug. (in Lightroom)

for your main galleries page, edit the top-level galleries properties in Backlight > Publisher > Top-level Galleries. Click on the name of the top level gallery and then click Properties.

I changes it to slug in Top Level Galleries, but see no difference.  Do I need to change something else?

I cleared template cache in Backlight as well as browser cache.

Show Top-level Breadcrumb in Child Album/Album Sets    yes

Re: Album order in Album Set

your Galleries page is sorting by slug. But your settings apply ONLY to the top level gallery (Galleries page)
Did you also change the sort settings for each album set?

Re: Album order in Album Set

Thanks... that did it.  Confusion is that some things are set in Lightroom and others in Backlight
