Convert Post Types
Possible to maintain hierarchy when changing categories to custom taxon (2 posts)

    I am using this plugin to convert some terms that I have in my categories into a custom taxonomy. For example, I have:
    Categories:

    • Category A
      • Subcategory 1
      • Subcategory 2
    • Category B
      • Subcategory 1
      • Subcategory 2
    • Category C
      • Subcategory 1
      • Subcategory 2

    And I would like to make Category C and all of its subcategories into a completely separate custom taxonomy. I can change the categories with this plugin, but the hierarchy isn't preserved correctly.

    I select convert from post to post limit posts to Category C and then I select Category C under Assign custom taxonomy terms. The conversion works, but it doesn't transfer the subcategories. If I select Category C AND Subcategory 1 then it applies the subcategory correctly, but it does not select apply Category C to the posts. Does that make sense? Ha.

    Not really, sorry! Maybe a screenshot would help? This plugin doesn't convert taxonomies, only post types.
