[resolved] [Plugin: Post Type Switcher] Seems to remove custom field values (4 posts)

    I sent this to the email on the developer website, but it bounced so I'm posting it here:

    First of all I wanted to thank you for the awesome custom post type switching plugin. It seems to switch the post types fine.

    I did run into some trouble though - it doesn't seem to maintain the meta data. I switched a post and then when I looked at the post page it didn't display any of the custom field information.

    I thought maybe it was just not displaying it with the new post type, yet when I switched it back, it didn't seem to have it anymore!

    I'm not sure if this is a known issue or not, but I figured I'd let you know.

    Also, assuming that can be fixed, I was wondering if there was a way to make it so the change could be done from the bulk edit area. It would be great to be able to do so, since I have thousands of posts that need to be resorted.

    Thanks again for your work!

    I figured this out. Basically, when I had redone my "More Fields" plugin, I had made it so the custom fields were not displaying on my regular posts anymore.

    The data was still there and displaying on the website pages (http://www.tradereadingorder.com/dc-comics-universe/showcase-presents-jonah-hex-vol-1/ for example) but it wasn't finding it to switch them over to the custom post type.

    Or something along those lines. I made sure that all the "more fields" were displaying on every post type, at least, temporarily, in the backend, and now it seems to work fine.

    I still wish there was some way to do bulk posts though! Can anyone tell me how to hack that into this? I feel like there must be, since I can do bulk edits to custom taxonomies and so on.
