Changing Album Text in Backlight

Where do I change the placeholder text for album descriptions?  From searches I thought it would be under 'Publisher > Top-Level Galleries > Galleries' but I don't see it there.

Is there a way to display the Title above thumbnails in an album?

Regarding single image displays - I was happily surprised to see that my Lightroom 'Caption' text displays below my images on display.  How do I enable the Lightroom 'Title' text to appear, preferably above the image?

Thank you folks - searching the forum has answered many of my questions.

Re: Changing Album Text in Backlight

Album description can be changed in the album itself.
In Lightroom, Edit the album.

Titles above the thumbnails is not something that can be changed in Backlight.
Possibly using jQuery??
Same with the single image display.

But you can add the title below, alongside the caption. Just add the Title metadata token to the appropriate token field in the album template.

Thank you Rod!  What about the 'Loren ipsem...' placeholder text, is that in Lightroom from the TTG-Publisher plugin?  I'll dig deeper tonight.

No, that’s the page copy in the album template
