Hello, I want to correct the backlink but when I write this:(jalbum2)
the link goes back to the same site (album-index and not domain-index)
Therefore I want to correct the link in the source text.

It's always the same answer. You must use an absolute URL, complete with the http:// part in front:

http://www.guenter-leipfinger.de/

Then you won't have to edit the finished album code.

Try reading about absolute and relative urls, somewhere like here , to see if it helps you understand urls.

Skin developers use relative links when referring to resources that are part of the album - often inside the ‘res’ folder. They use absolute links when referring to external content, like Google fonts.

Didn'you see my screenshot? There is it is an absolute link (guenter-leipfinger/index.html) as you suggest!

That is NOT an absolute link, because it doesn't start with http://.

Please, please do some reading about the difference between a relative link and an absolute link.

Edit:

This is a relative link: guenter-leipfinger.de/index.html

This is an absolute link: http://guenter-leipfinger.de/index.html (and it would work without the "index.html" on the end, because that's the default)

Do you see how they are different?

Yes I see the difference, but it is indifferent, weather I write
-guenter-leipfinger.de/index.html or
-http://guenter-leipfinger.de/
-http://guenter-leipfinger.de/index.html
the link is always
file:///C:/Users/G%C3%BCnter/Documents/My%20Albums/Acrylmalerei/album/index.html
but it should be
-guenter-leipfinger.de/index.html

There are two different places to enter this kind of link. You must enter it correctly in both places. Then you must make the album again, and refresh your browser cache while viewing the album.

See the screenshots for the two places to enter the link: link1.png and link2.png. Then see where each one is in the finished album: result.png
