Works perfectly and has saved me heaps of time
By , for WP 3.9.1

One small wish for a future enhancement ... it would be great if the plugin checked the settings for comments in Dashboard > Settings > Discussion. When comments are turned off, and a page is being converted to a post, then the post should not have comments allowed by default.

I am converting from pages to posts, and it is a bit of a nuisance to have to remember to turn comments off for each post. But that is a small thing compared to the convenience of using this plugin. Many thanks to the author.

Caused my CPT permalinks to break
By ,

I switched one custom post type to another and it caused all the permalinks in my custom post type that I switched the posts to break. I'm using the %/sample-slug/% style and now all my permalinks in that CPT are broken.

Simple, clean, works like a charm
By , for WP 3.7.1

It's a nice plugin that does exactly what it says with lots of preconversion filters. I used it to convert posts from one FAQ plugin to another FAQ plugin. I installed this plugin, activated it, went to the plugin's interface, and did the conversion. Total time: 2 minutes. Sweet.

made everything vanish
By , for WP 3.6.1

Completely deleted one of my post types. I went with Post Type Switcher instead, and that one worked perfectly.

saved me a day of work!

Thank you for making this tool! Saved me a ton of work. Worked exactly as expected. You can go category by category for best control over which taxonomy term (and post type) things get converted to.

Super-useful, thanks.

Worked exactly as needed
By , for WP 3.5.2

Decided after entering a lot of content that I wanted several pages to be a custom post type. This took care of my need instantly.

It works!

I don't believe it respected my choice in terms of "only convert posts from xyz category" but I may have done something incorrectly.

Thank you for making this.
