Information to help those upgrading from CE4 to Backlight 2

Could anyone point me in the direction of any overviews for those of us upgrading from CE4 to BL2?  I just want the basic differences between the workflow of the two.  For instance I am just about to start copying and pasting the text I had in CE4 Pages in Lightroom over to BL2's Designer Pages because it seems like Lightroom is only used to produce Galleries and not Pages content.

This upgrade is starting to feel like previous TTG upgrades but I am hoping I just missed some information along the way.

Cheers,
Bob.

Re: Information to help those upgrading from CE4 to Backlight 2

If you are using Publisher in CE4, then Albums and Album Sets can be migrated to Backlight. If you are not using Publisher you will need to re-create those galleries and autoindexes as albums and album sets.

You will need to redesign your site; there is no way to migrate design settings from one platform (CE4) to another (Backlight)

What, specifically, do you want to know?

I’ve created a couple of posts about moving from CE4 to Backlight.

And one for if you were exporting and uploading galleries: http://ttg-tips-and-tricks.barbeephoto. … backlight/

That's because you are coming from CE4. Last Friday, I upgraded my site from BL1 to BL2 and within minutes my new site was up and running.

Thanks Rod,

Yes, I was using Publisher in CE4.  I tried the "Migrate Albums from CE4" in BL2 but I got the following error for three of the albums:


Something went wrong

The album with id 194251 could not be found in GalleryDelegate.php on line 91

I will now explore the links you provided.

Cheers,
Bob.

Thanks Rod. The Publisher link was perfect. I only wish that I had come across it sooner.
