Converting to new theme (4 posts)

    The situation here is that the old theme had your post area, then had another tab to click on when posting reviews... I thought when I converted to the new theme that those reviews would convert themselves to a review category in the post area.. Apparently I am way off and they do not show up anywhere.. I need to bring them back but not sure how to go about doing this... or if it is even possible.

    Depends on how those reviews were organized

    Do you know if they were categories, or custom post types, or what?

    I believe it was a custom post type, which then had their own category... but I cant seem to find the db table that they would sit in... any suggestions, and is there a way to convert them so we can move them to the regular post table... or have we just lost them

    Looking through here, it does not appear that unregistering a post type deletes the associated posts - Now I'm not sure how deactivating the theme handles it

    I would hope it all happens in a non-destructive manner

    Possibly, the post type could be re registered using the same rules that the theme established, within your new theme -- or better yet, if you plan to keep the post type, it could be done from within a plugin to keep the post type theme independent

    And it appears everything stays within wp_posts table - if your posts aren't there at all... that could be bad news
