[resolved] Creating pages "in bulk"..... is it possible? (5 posts)

    Hi everyone,

    I've got an idea about using WordPress in an unusual way, and it involves creating maybe three or four hundred pages to start with (the content will come from user comments). Not a typical use of WordPress I admit!

    Does anyone know a quick way to add pages (without content), maybe involving some sort of SQL jiggery-pokery? I'm wondering for example if it's possible to open the SQL database and add page names as if it was an ordinary spreadsheet. Then I could just type, move to the next line, and so on. Does anyone know if that's do-able?

    Many thanks,

    Tom

    Take a look at wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php and see the MySQL INSERT used to create the "About" page that gets created during a new WordPress installation.

    Or use 'Tools->Export' and view the XML file to create your XML file that you could then do 'Tools->Import->WordPress'' with.

    Hi thiskey, I also created a plugin to do this type of thing. Have a look at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/mass-page-maker/ and it might be what you're looking for.
