Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

Hi

In Lightroom I did a full re-publish of an album with a changed name. For some reason it re-published a duplicate album (i.e. same name) and did not delete the legacy album. I tried changing the name of the album again but it kept the dupes.

An illustration of the current state is here:

The only thing that may be inhibiting the republish is the password set up from within Lightroom on the original versions. While I will remember to unlock before a republish next time, I'm stuck with these old locked albums on my page and don't know how to manually remove or stop displaying them.

The one I want to show is called "Theme-Litherland" and the old ones I don't want are both called "Litherland"...

Many thanks for tips

Ed

Re: Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

If deleting from Publisher isn't working out, you can try deleting from Backlight.
From the dashboard go to Publisher > Top Level Galleries
Click on the Albums link.
You'll see a list of albums and sets in the top-level folder. Click on name of the album you wish to delete.
Scroll to the bottom of the album page and click Delete Album.

Thanks Rod
I did access Publisher > Top Level Galleries
but did not see any Albums link, nor any list of Albums
Here is a non-public mini-movie to show what i did see:

Re: Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

you should be seeing more than that:

Are you accessing the Backlight dashboard as an administrator or a guest?

Re: Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

I noticed on your video that you're using Backlight version 1.0.0. The current release is 1.0.1.
You should first download and install the latest version.

Thanks Rod, I'm logged in as Admin.
Can I just ask could any content be lost on upgrading to v1.0.1? Just in case.

Re: Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

no, you won't lose any content as long as you follow the update instructions and heed the warning:

IMPORTANT: Do NOT replace the entire backlight directory!  Doing so will remove ALL data and settings!

Re: Legacy Albums - did not delete and are still showing

the instructions should also be included in a readme file in the download.
