Support » Plugin: Page Links To » Bulk creation of pages linking elsewhere

  • Is there a way to bulk create a large number of pages linking elsewhere on the site, ideally by importing a CSV file or something? Maybe by using a third party plugin like WP All Import?

    To elaborate a bit, I’d need to create a few hundred pages, each of which would redirect to a corresponding instance of a custom post type. Obviously, I’d hate to do this by manually creating each page. I’m trying to make it so that clicking a taxonomy item (e.g. a category) leads to a custom post type, but it seams that I can only set a custom landing _page_, so I’d have an additional step of creating these pages which would, in turn, redirect to a corresponding instance of a custom post type.

  • Probably not the answer you’re looking for, but this feels REALLY clunky and there’s probably a better way to do what you’re ultimately trying to do.

    This doesn’t sound right, and you may want to look at how you’re registering the custom post types and taxonomies to make sure you have the right settings for your use case.

    Thank you for your feedback. Yeah, I agree, feels awfully clunky.

    I’ve put this project on the back-burner in the meantime and this was one of the reasons.

    wp all import. add the custom field for custom url field for external links. im actually here to try to figure out the field.
