Update Backlight 2.0

Hello
  in my Backlight 1.2.3 I have a gallery response with about 18000 photos to my homepage, and for this reason I have not yet transferred to Backlight 2.0! the whole documentation is in english and that makes me afraid to change, with new Lightroom 8.3 I can no longer use the Backlight 1.2.3.
My question can someone help me in german to update?
Thank you for your support!

Re: Update Backlight 2.0

Not to discourage you from updating to Backlight 2, but the TTG Publisher plugin (any version) works in the current version of Lightroom Classic.
However, Lightroom (formerly Lightroom CC) cannot use the Publisher plugin (or any plugin as far as I know)

Are you using Lightroom Classic?

Re: Update Backlight 2.0

This may be something for Ben to look into, but it sounds like a server issue.

Is the error appearing in Publisher?

Re: Update Backlight 2.0

I am using Lightroom Classic 8.3 and have been unable to upload image files to my website. The response is:

"Can’t update this collection.
Unable to perform action: getSetupForTemplate
Message: The page sent an action that was not available."

Will the Publisher be updated to deal with this issue? I realize that files can now be uploaded directly to Backlight 2 without using LR, but I prefer to continue to use LR for this purpose. If not, can LR 8.3 be downgraded to the earlier version?

Thanks,

Barry

Re: Update Backlight 2.0

I don't think this is a Lightroom (or Publisher) issue. I'm also on LR Classic 8.3 and am seeing no problems

That error implies that a template is missing.
Have you made any changes recently?
Are you still using Okapi templates but perhaps no longer have the Okapi modules installed?

Re: Update Backlight 2.0

Problem solved!

I had configured my website for SSL but neglected to change the API URL in Publisher from http to https.

My compliments to your group for simplifying the configuration of the Backlight settings SSL access! I had previously avoided making the change.
