ugh, sorry to bring this topic up, I tried to re-trace old threads on the same, but here's my problem, I only have one public lightbox, but I changed the title in "edit" mode, jot save - and now it has disappeared as a public lightbox (or has it?)  


what did I do wrong, and how can undo the wrong I've done?  anyone know?

Yeah I can't see it now Maybe try adding a few more files into to it to try and make it pop up again? Did you have a few images in there too? Mine only worked when I added pictures to the lightbox, then I could make it public.

lightboxes need 20+ files from different contributors to show the "public" button.
BUT: it is a known bug that detalied, moderate, complex and elaborate audio files don't count in this sum. So you will need (remaining in the audio domain) 20 basic files (which are commonly SFX, 2-3 credits). Elsewhere you can add 20 photos. This should make your lightbox "public-able" again. Assuming that it's worth having a "public" lightbox.

As a personal advice, I would suggest you using your precious time to make something new and beautiful (music!!!!) instead of struggling about public lightboxes

A hug from the circus

ETA: I guess that if you remove/add files from an already public lightbox it will remain public until you press "save" in the edit mode...saving could clear previous privileges if the lightbox doesnt own them no more...this could be your case's history imho...

thanks everyone, here is the link:


Audio tracks with vocals


it does have 225 files in it, it's the only public lightbox I have, I just for some unknown reason decided to change the title as I had too many words in capitals, it has had over 900 views, so worth to try to find back ?             :   )


I think what you said Ze, I pushed the button and it maybe cleared something, maybe it will just take a few days to reset?


hugs back to the circus and the circus clan (little Viola, is she walking yet? talking?)

on your page, you have no public LBs showing. I imagine you are aware of this so I'm stating the obvious (sorry) . Under "Edit details", does it show a blank or checked "Public" box?

no, there's no public box to check, maybe it will show up in a few days?  or I could try to add some photos, that trick used to work!

ugh! on your storm waters in the basement (not that it's similar - design & marketing), but we have issues every year. Everything is up on off the basement floor).

do post again if the adding photos doesn't show that check box or if the LB doesn't appear in the next couple days.

good luck!

That's terrible I hope the stress of it all is dissipating. We've had floods here in Australia (in Gippsland) too but I've been very fortunate as my house is on a steep incline/decline (depending on where you stand ) and so the water always runs off. Although I have had many an accident sliding down the driveway on the incredible moss!

Hello Lisa!
Hope you will restart your studio very quickly
here's historical public lightboxes thread:

click

I think nothing has changed. From time distance perspective this function is poorly usable, public lightboxes search is still broken.

moss on your driveway?  sliding down it?! crazy!  earthquakes in Italy?  crazy!  okay dear lightbox, I shall let you die in peace and I will revive a new one with my favorites from the old as I have time.  When I see the awesome little public lightbox check box, I will do a happy dance and check it immediately.  Robin, I remember your thread now, I remember laughing at how convulted the method was, and how did you figure that out?  anyways, thanks everyone, I guess I shouldn't have messed with the title on a whim.  Zosh you better strap a pillow to your behind!   :

Hey Lisa if you really wish to make it public I guess that Robert's "20 photos" trick could make your day!

More like a bean bag as the impact is pretty crazy .... I hope the drying out has been successful. And Picc the earthquakes make for very sad reading. I hope recovery in the hit areas is fast.

Just a note on lightboxes for audio - ONLY basic fies are counted towards your 20 fies to make a lightbox public. Therefore an audio lightbox need to have 20 basic files, or 20 photos/illustrations/videos to make the lightbox public.


This has been a bug since audio lanched, it is unlikley to get fixed any time soon.

again, agreeing to hope for Italy's fast recovery...


and yes, the 20 trick worked - I added some great vectors, now these artists will wondering why in the world their illustrations are in "Audio tracks with vocals"    :
