Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding Existing Post Categories To Custom Post Type

  • mactds



    I’m going to clarify what I’m looking to do as best I can. I have a review site, and have a custom post type set up for reviews. My regular posts have three existing categories that feed right into a special section in my header. I want to apply an existing category to one of my reviews. I tried to add ‘category’ to make it show: array(‘category’,’post_tag’). The categories then added to my reviews, and I selected one of the categories, but when you click on that category there are no reviews or any posts filled under it.

    If anyone has any solution ideas, I’m open to ideas, and I hope I clarified it well enough.

    Thank You,

    I think that what you need to do is convert your posts into reviews. Have a look at the Convert post type plugin. It makes post conversion super easy.



    I also have 800 posts, and about 400 reviews. I just want to add certain reviews to a special category I have for feature of the day. It would just be on occasion.
