Really handy!
By , for WP 4.1

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

Absoulutly the handiest tool in the linking industry

After importing tons of content from HTML static pages, this is a must have tool to tweak the final content version

Works perfectly and has saved me heaps of time

One small wish for a future enhancement ... it would be great if the plugin checked the settings for comments in Dashboard > Settings > Discussion. When comments are turned off, and a page is being converted to a post, then the post should not have comments allowed by default.

I am converting from pages to posts, and it is a bit of a nuisance to have to remember to turn comments off for each post. But that is a small thing compared to the convenience of using this plugin. Many thanks to the author.

Excellent Tool

Thank you for this excellent utility! It has saved me hours of work in several instances.

Simple, clean, works like a charm

It's a nice plugin that does exactly what it says with lots of preconversion filters. I used it to convert posts from one FAQ plugin to another FAQ plugin. I installed this plugin, activated it, went to the plugin's interface, and did the conversion. Total time: 2 minutes. Sweet.
