Help with Gallery Error

I'm getting an error when I access my 1st gallery exported. I installed Pages and set my Pages gallery to my homepage and my Pages auto index setting to gallery page. That all looks good. I followed instruction to install ttg-be and verified contact email works.

Then followed instructions to create a gallery, (followed guide to copy Pages template) setting the album name and description and choosing a new collection of photos. Exported and dropped into my galleries folder. I see the index and see it selecting a new photo for the index every time I click on my galleries page. But when I click on the gallery I get a long error log.

Where should I look to troubleshoot?

My plan after getting galleries to work is to install publisher, auto index and cart.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Help with Gallery Error

It's been awhile...but that looks like Lightroom plug-in code?

How exactly did you get the gallery online?

It should be:
Export gallery from lightroom
Upload the exported folder to the galleries/ folder on your site via ftp.

can you confirm this?

Yes, I'm using LR 6.14 and CE4 PHP. I did what you said, exported from LR and uploaded folder to my galleries folder via ftp.

Re: Help with Gallery Error

I would delete the folder on the site and on your computer and try exporting and uploading again.

The error seems familiar, but it's been a long time since I've had to dig into CE4 that I can't recall what it could be.

Inside an exported folder you should have these kinds of files and folders:

lib/
photos/
thumbnails/
thumbnails-for-mobile/
autoindex.xml
index.php
mobile.php
setup.xml
and some template_XXX.php files

are you seeing all this?

Re: Help with Gallery Error

Looks like this is a new site or install. Why don't you start with Backlight 2? It is so much easier....

Re: Help with Gallery Error

Yes I have deleted the folder, and tried everything a 2nd time. I guess I'll try the gallery without doing the template modification and see if that works. Yes I see all the files correctly in the folder and the gallery see them since it selects a different photo every time I select the gallery link. The autoindex file has the correct album name, description etc.

Thanks for any help.

Actually, Daniel and I are just offering our best advice. Neither of us are financially tied to TTG, we're just volunteers here.

Aha! That triggered a memory. That's Plugin orvtemplate code I'm seeing. You were not creating the user template correctly. In fact, you might be using the web engine file (.lrwebengine) rather than a web template file (.lrtemplate)
