How To Change Custom Post Types In WordPress
Social sharing

If you’re into WordPress, you must be familiar with “post types”. Considering how widely popular WordPress has become, everyday people are using it in different ways. And being an open-source platform… there are already too many options available. You can’t really ask for more.

However, every once in a while there comes a scenario where you need to change custom post type in WordPress for one or more posts. No more creating a new page, copy the contents & delete the earlier post. We’ve just made the process a lot simpler. 

Andolasoft is proud to announce the release of a ‘Custom Post Type Changer‘ plugin for WordPress. It’s easy to download, even easier to install & super useful. Let’s talk more about it.


How It Works?

Add a post-type drop-down to the quick edit and bulk edit sections. And you can reassign any post-type to a new post type. It’s that easy!

Installation Process 

  • In the WordPress Dashboard > Go to “Plugins” > “Add Plugin”.
  • Look for “Custom Post Type Changer”.
  • Click on the “Install” button, and activate the plugin.
  • Move to posts/pages/any other post types & click on the quick edit option to select your current post-type from the dropdown.
  • Change the post types as required & update.
  • For “Bulk Edit”, select the posts you want to modify & click “edit” from “Bulk Options” dropdown. Then click on “Apply”.

You will find your current post-type auto-selected from the post-type dropdown.

Supported Types

The plugin is capable enough to convert nearly every combination of posts, pages or even custom post types, such as:

  • Page to Post
  • Post to Page
  • Post to Custom
  • Custom to Custom

Bulk Editing

With the bulk edit feature, you can select all the posts from a certain type & convert them to a new post type in a second or two.
