By switching post types you can convert any post into a page or custom post type, you can also convert any page into a post or custom post type or any custom post type into a page or post.
There are various options available to bulk convert post types in your WordPress site. But you can also individually switch any post type from the post edit screen.
Post Type Switcher is a WordPress plugin that adds a simple post-type drop-down to your post edit screens. Thus, allowing you to reassign any post to a new post type while editing your post.
Once activated, it can convert nearly every combination of posts, pages, and custom post types on your WordPress website:
- Post to Page
- Page to Post
- Post to Custom Post Type
- Custom Post Type to another Custom Post Type
While converting any post the invisible post types, such as revisions, menus, etc, are excluded. But, in case if you need to access invisible post types, you can adjust the boundaries of the plugin by using the ‘pts_post_type_filter’ filter.
Apart from this, bulk editing allows you to select all the posts in a certain type and convert them to a new type with one quick action.
