Converting gallery from lightroom published to backlight published

Is it possible to convert an existing gallery published by Lightroom to  Backlight published? I can't use Publisher to move parent folders.

I think you can add to a a Lightroom created  album using Backlight Publisher.
But converting it? Not really. You could try deleting the Lightroom published images and replace them with a Backlight published images.

Just a user with way too much time on his hands., Backlight 2/3 test site

Hi Mark, Backlight won’t let you reparent Lightroom-created albums because there isn’t a way for that change to be propagated back to Lightroom, and the structure would get out of sync and cause further problems when attempting to update the album from Lightroom.
Is this just a single album? Do you no longer plan to update it from Lightroom?

It can be changed through the database interface if needed. I should look into a way of changing an album from Lightroom to Backlight, accompanied with warnings about the above.
