Support » Plugin: My Content Management » Merge tables

  • Resolved Henk Oonk


    I use MCM for building up different tables to manage my website (because I have different types of information that are linked to from my main part pages and blogs). I also use WP Glossary but want to merge WP Glossary (slug ‘glossary’) with the Custom Post Type in MCM Glossary Terms (slug ‘mcm_glossary’). I tried Post Type Switcher and I can move posts from WP Glossary to MCM Glossary Terms, but the links from pages and blogs to the moved Glossary page break in the process (and I have 890 pages to move).
    Could I change the slug for MCM Glossary Terms from ‘mcm_glossary’ to ‘glossary’ without losing the links? Otherwise I might have to use Broken Link Checker??
    Anyone any suggestion?

    If you change the slug for MCM Glossary terms to glossary, any link that has been automatically generated (in navigation, within page content, etc.) will still be a valid link. However, I can’t make any guarantees for other links. Certainly any link made manually to a URL that includes the ‘mcm_glossary’ slug will certainly be broken.

    I do suggest using a tool such as search and replace:

    You can use that to globally search your content for ‘mcm_glossary’ and replace it with ‘glossary’ after changing the slug. Just an FYI, however – changing the slug does *not* change the post type name; just the front-end reference to that post type. The post type name will still be mcm_glossary.
