    Can I insert hundreds of PDFs in a batch for an old site to the new site?

    Are you trying to convert those PDFs into posts? Or just upload them as media that can be inserted as links within posts/pages?

    In the latter case, you can use the media manager to just drag and drop your PDF files. Go to WP-Admin > Media > Add New.

    Another option might be to use Google Doc Embedder, a plugin with a deceptive name. It allows you to embed PDFs (and other file types) in posts and pages, which then get rendered using the Google Doc Viewer.

    Ah, sorry. I didn't quite understand what you were trying to do. It sounds like you just need to export a single page with all PDF attachments from one WordPress website and import it to another. Is that correct?

    If so, this article might be helpful: https://managewp.com/wordpress-migrating-content-and-media
