Assigning Page>Post to category? (5 posts)

    This doesn't seem to work properly.

    It sets the ID of chosen category as the post's "post_parent". They don't show up in your admin's post-overview because of this.

    That's weird... I changed it back to 0 and it's still not showing up. What the hell is going on here :/

    Edit: ok..? Apparently, WPML is the culprit here. Desperately trying to figure out what's going wrong here...

    Hi, are you still experiencing problems with this plugin?

    I am, but I think I've gained a better understanding of what's causing this:

    WPML adds a separate many-to-many table ('{{wp-prefix}}_icl_translations') which tracks the translation for every post. Any posts that are NOT included in this table are hidden from view in the admin dashboard.

    So basically, when a post is converted to a page AND WPML is installed, it would also have to change the element_type in this database...

    If anyone else runs into this problem; you want to finish up any conversions BEFORE activating WPML. If you have already activated WPML, you'll have to disable it by going to WPML > Support > Troubleshooting (the link is at the bottom of the support page). There, click on “Reset all language data and deactivate WPML”.
