[resolved] Convert page from post does not copy important attributes (4 posts)

    We regularly use the plugin to archive the best posts into (date-independent) pages. Then we retweet these page to keep the content on top of Google.
    Thanks for your work for the plugin. We have sent you a donation just now.

    Recently I converted some pages into posts. Unfortunately my theme Graphene cannot show those converted posts in the overview slider for the recent posts.

    When I manually convert the page, this is:
    create a new post and copy the HTML text from the page, then this slider works.

    It seems that you missed to convert an important attribute.

    Hello Peter & George,

    Thank you very much for your contribution. It is highly appreciated.

    Have checked on the following setup WordPress 3.7.1 and installed Graphene theme from https://wordpress.org/themes/graphene

    Have created some posts and then turned them into pages and back. The same for posts and turned them into pages.

    The posts _do_ appear in the slider.

    Could it be the matter of an option in the theme itself?

    /wp-admin/themes.php?page=graphene_options

    It works with "What do you want to show in the slider" - "Show latest posts".

    Maybe you have set it to "Show specific posts/pages"?

    Will be more than happy to assist you further.

    At the moment cannot find the issue with QPM plugin itself.

    We have a static WP home page. But in the slider we show the last 8 posts. And of these the converted one does not show up.

    Hello Peter,

    Have reproduced as you said. Had a [new] static page set as homepage.

    Then made sure the slider is showing last 8 posts.

    Then created a page. Then converted it into a post.

    This post is showing in the slider.

    Please pay attention that the date of the [converted] post is in the top 8 latest. Else the theme would not pick them up.

    In any case, it certainly look not to be an issue in QPM.

    Please feel free to update with any further relevant info once it develops.
