Time-saver
By ,

Worked like a charm. Be kinda nice when switching from Page to Post if it could null post_parent (aka, I forgot to do that at first). Or maybe just a suggestion to user to set (No Parent) when switching from any hierarchical post-type.

Thanks so much for this tool. Where's the Donate link so I can send a few $emolians,

Changes WooCommerce shop_order without permission
By , for WP 3.9.1

When updating WooCommerce Orders, the plugin automatically—and without permission—switches the post type from 'shop_order' to 'post'. Had to go into phpMyAdmin to change them back.

Too many conflicts!!
By , for WP 3.9

Breaks Shortcodes UI post types upon edit.

See the support threads - several other plugin conflicts listed there.

Might work okay on a very simple site, but too buggy for mine.

Needs more testing and debugging.

Incredibly useful, reliable plugin
By , for WP 3.8.1

This plugin is sooo useful. I use it all the time when I'm developing new post types, moving existing post types around, etc... I love that it works with pages too. This saved me a lot of finicky work I shutter to even think about.

Thank you John (and Matthew)!

Works, but buggy in bulk edit mode
By , for WP 3.8

It works as advertised, but I'm concerned that this plugin is no longer updated (last updated December 2012). Case in point: I faced the problem described in this thread: wordpress.org/support/topic/quick-edit-shows-multiple-post-type-drop-downs. Although someone provided code that fixes the bug, the plugin author hasn't cared to update the plugin. In any case, the problem is non-fatal, and I could use the plugin even without implementing the fix by setting all the combo boxes available (maybe just the last one would do, though).

Works like it says
By , for WP 3.6.1

Like a boss.

"Convert Post Types" completely deleted one of my post types, but Post Type Switcher worked fast and easily. Couldn't ask for more.
