[resolved] Change PAGE to POST (6 posts)

    Yes, this is an unusual question. But is there a way to change a page to a post?

    Here's why:

    I'd like to write a Christmas letter as a page, using a unique page template. Then I'll email all my relatives and give them the link to that page. After a month or so, I'll turn it back into a post (so it is in the archives and in search results).

    Any ideas? My searching found a couple other folks asking this question, but no results (like this).

    If I can't do this, then I'll just write that Christmas card outside of WP or something, since I don't want to forever have to change wp_list_pages in every theme I use to exclude this page.

    Stating your specific wordpress version would be a plus considering how the database layout was changed a number of times recently. It's actually a quick fix but depends on your version of wp for specifics.

    Just for reference, bumping is usually frowned upon, especially within 24 hours. Also replying to your own posts as now folks think someone is helping you since there has been a reply to the question. Most responders use the "Threads without a response" link to see who needs help.

    Actually, now that I think about it, I realize that I know how to do it in the database, but I'm still wondering if anybody knows an easier, more kosher way.

    For the record, my version is WPMU 1.2.5a, which uses the 2.2+ codebase in all the relevant places.

    I just change it in the database myself. if I can get a soccer mom to do it and explain to others how to do it, you can to. ;)

    Yes, Jeremy, but I was hoping for a little goodwill given all the time I've put into this forum in the past. It's not a WPMU question anyway.

    Regardless, it's no longer an issue.
