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.

Can break other plugins - use with extreme care!
By , for WP 3.5.1

I was going to give this 2 stars, but when I saw the 'Works' attribute popup, I had to go with 1 because this plugin could really frack your site depending on what other plugins you had installed. It did 'work' for me, but in the narrowest possible definition.

One example is this: http://wordpress.org/plugins/visual-editor-custom-buttons/. If you have Post Type Switcher enabled, any time you update a custom button it gets converted to a Post and there's no way to get it back. I'm not sure what would happen with bulk editing, but if it's the same then you could do massive amounts of damage to your site without noticing.

It would be a very useful plugin, but it needs to be able to gather a list of all existing custom post types and make sure it's set to use each post's current type by default. Either that or just have the default setting be no action. Having the post type updated every time you update a post is asking for trouble.
