    hey guys. i am fairly new to wordpress but have decent knowledge of creating and editing templates on this platform. I have a client now that has his current site set up in wordpress as pages. he likes the layout and design but he wants his entire site converted into blog pages instead of reagular pages. how would I go about accomplishing this for them?

    This might work for you: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/post-type-switcher/
    I recommend trying it out in a test environment. Never play with these things on a live site.

    Thanks TC... I'll check it out. Do you think this would be a permeant fix or just a temporary?

    All blog posts, pages, custom post types are stored primarily in one table ('posts table'). The plugin switches the type permanently in the database. It will not make future 'pages' into 'posts', it just updates the current data. You can switch the post type of a post as many times as you like.
