Hi there at ttg,
I have successfully upgraded to Backlight 4 and not experienced any problems with my site as is. When I now try to apply the new Pangolin Journal though, I run into problems.
I was able to successfully download and install the Journal Starter Template, have watched Matt’s video about this template and can’t still resolve the issues.
I have an album set inside another album set. For the set, which resides inside an album set I like to apply the Journal Starter Template.
This is possible in principle and I see that it is applied, but the results are not as expected. For simplicity and following Matt’s video I have turned off all blocks except the 8th one.
The albums are all there, but for most of them no thumbnail images are shown, just the titles are visible. The only exception is the album, for which I had upploaded a specific cover image through the Backlight publisher. All the other albums use cover images, which are in a hidden thumbnail album from where I have selected them through Lightroom. I know the cover images (thumbnails) maybe not ideal, but this should work in principle, no?
The next problem occurs when I click on any of the albums. I then get a Paradox 404! error, which is caused by a wrong link to the selected album.
When using my working Standard Pangolin album set template, I get this link to the album (example):
but when trying to go there while the Journal Starter Template is active, I get this link:
As one can see, the part for the first album set is not included in the link and hence no album is shown.
I’ll keep the Journal Starter Template active for the time being so that you can have a look, although I’d like to go back to a working situation asap as you can imagine.
