Gallery navigation issue

This test site pideja.ca/luc/fr, is getting along slowly but surely. The galleries pages (oeuvres) does not display the navigation designed for the overall site.

I created a "oeuvres" template based on the home page template (as I did with all other pages on this site) and, created an album-set based on this template.

If you'd care to take a look:

guest / welcome

Re: Gallery navigation issue

the luc-oeuvres page template's layout is set for one column. It needs to be two columns to display the pallet that contains the navigation.
This will likely be the same issue with the album you mentioned in the other thread.

Re: Gallery navigation issue

the best way to set these things up is to get one page template the way you want it, then clone it so the layout and navigation is the same. Then just change your background image.

Why not use one page template for all pages and use custom css to assign the background image?

With Backlight, there are now many body classes available that can be used to select a specific page or group of pages:

<body class="pangolin type-page template-id-11 template-identifier-lucfr-acceuil pages-template-id-5 pages-template-identifier-about slug-about cart-unready crg-unready" data-layout="2col left">

So to select the about page, just use following code in your custom css file luc-fr.css:

.slug-about .background__image 
{
	background-image: url('http://pideja.ca/luc/fr/backlight/designer/?c=page&a=image&p1=8&222');
}

This seems to be easier than having to create so many page templates. Can't imagine how difficult it would be to maintain all these different page templates in the future.
