Custom Post Template
Migrating to organic post types in wordpress (8 posts)

    Does anyone know how to easily migrate a lot of posts (about a thousand) spread over about 10 custom post types to the organic custom posts now provided in wordpress functionality? I've loved this plugin, but I always try to minimize the risk of a plugin losing support whenever possible.

    Just saw a post about someone having problems with this plugin after 3.4. Anyone else seeing an issue?
    Regardless, has anyone migrated from using this plugin to the organic post types now supported by wordpress? I think as a rule of thumb, fewer plugins is better than more plugins.

    Where have you seen a report of something not working? I must have missed it.

    If you want to use custom post templates for Custom Post Types, e.g. one post in Custom Post Type A having a different template to another post in Custom Post Type A, then this plugin does support that:

    If you want to move to Custom Post Types and only use one template per Custom Post Type then you no longer need this plugin.

    Best of luck.

    Simon,

    I just saw one of the comments on this support forum and the 'is it broken' votes is 0 to 1.

    Sounds like you haven't heard of this being a widespread problem, though. So you don't think there is a problem with updating WP?

    As far as migrating, I guess I'll have to think through that more. I guess post types and templates are not one and the same.

    Part of it is risk management. This plugin is the backbone of my site, and I try not to rely that heavily on plugins if I can help it. Are you planning on continuing to support this plugin?

    Thanks for responding.
    Jeff

    I support all my plugins as far as I am able, bearing in mind that they are not directly responsible for my income. I certainly have no plans to abandon this plugin.

    Turns out there was an issue, apologies. I've released an upgrade, v1.5, which REQUIRES WordPress v3.4 and WILL BREAK ON EARLIER VERSIONS. I'm particularly interested if you're using Custom Post Types with the plugin, let me know if it's all still OK.

    If you have a problem seeing your templates in the drop down, please check you have the correct string in the plugin header.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Do you recommend updating to 3.4 then 1.5, or vice versa?
