This is a great plugin

I've installed on my site and change Post type, however I want to change taxonomy type too. Example I have Ad Tags and Ad Categories and now I want to change it to Tags and Categories. It would be better!

Works Well

Works very well and it is quick. Thanks

Processed ALL my posts, not just selected ones

Despite limiting the posts to be converted to one particular category, the plugin converted all my posts, creating a huge mess. Glad I backed up, but I won't trust this again.

Simple And Easy

I am a rookie at WordPress. Had to convert some pages to posts and was struggling. This plugin worked exactly as stated and thus I am now in Love with Stephanie! :-) Thanks very much for your competence and willingness to transfer knowledge!

Really handy!

This has come in handy more than once.

I do find the Tools menu a weird workflow. It would be really cool if I could check a bunch of posts, scroll up to the batch edit, and convert from the bulk edit menu.

One other suggestion would be about converting pages that are children of a specific page; I noticed it only grabbed immediate children. It would be handy to get all ancestors of a target page.

Just a couple suggestions to a plugin that perfectly does what it says! Thanks for this!

when the music reviews became too numerous to be pages, I converted them to posts for [ link redacted, please do not post links in reviews ]. Its a fairly simple site with about 2 dozen reviews, but now they paginate and will be ordered by date as they should have been. It worked for me! Thanks Stephanie

Little bug (and fix) converting pages 2 posts and no post category assigned
By , for WP 4.1

Hello, great plugin that saved my client a lot of work, but I found maybe a little bug, that I post, including the fix that worked for me, just in case someone needs.

The issue came out converting pages into posts, and the user wanted to assign categories during the conversion process.

The problem: child pages of a selected parent were converted into posts, but the new posts had no category at all.

I found at line 167 of convert-post-types.php, the following code :

/* WRONG (line 167) */
wp_set_post_terms( $post->ID, $_POST['post_category'], 'post_category', false );
/* WRONG (line 167) */

Strange, I never found a standard WP taxonomy named "post_category" before. So, I changed the line into the following :

/* RIGHT */
wp_set_post_terms( $post->ID, $_POST['post_category'], 'category', false );
/* RIGHT */

And it worked like a charm. I hope, the fix can be applied to the official version, if the Author agrees.

Hth someone.

All the best, Miguel
