Post Type Switcher


This plugin adds a simple post-type drop-down to the post editor interface, allowing you to reassign any post to a new post type. It allows you to switch post’s type while editing your post.

Yποστηριζόμενοι τύποι

The plugin can convert nearly every combination of posts, pages, and even custom post types:

  • Σελίδα σε άρθρο
  • Άρθρο σε σελίδα
  • Post to Custom
  • Custom to Custom

As of 3.0.0, support for switching to or from Attachments was removed. This may come back in a subsequent version.

Invisible post types, such as revisions, menus, etc., are purposely excluded. But, if you need to access invisible post types, you can adjust the boundaries using the ‘pts_post_type_filter’ filter.

Μαζική επεξεργασία

With bulk editing (thanks to Matthew Gerring) you can select all the posts in a certain type and convert them to a new type with one quick action.

Block Editor

With block-editor (aka Gutenberg) support (thanks to Daniel Bachhuber) you can switch between post-types that use either the Block Editor and the Classic one, without losing any of your embedded content.


  • "Type" column in "Posts" screen.
  • "Post Type" interface in "Quick Edit".
  • "Post Type" interface in "Edit Post" screen.

Συχνές Ερωτήσεις

Γιατί το χρειάζομαι αυτό;

You need to selectively change a posts type from one to another.

Does this ruin my taxonomy associations?

It should not. This plugin only changes the ‘post_type’ property of a post.

Does this ruin block-editor content?

It should not. Be careful when editing HTML content while switching between editor types!

Will this delete my content?

No. This plugin does not include any code capable of deleting anything.

Plugin conflicts are not unheard of and can be difficult to troubleshoot.

If you’re worried, backup your database and deactivate all other plugins before using this tool.

If you’re still worried, ask for help in the support forums.

There’s really no other option when you need to filter out posts by type. It would be a nightmare to do it manually, so this plug in is one of a kind! Really helpful and works perfectly. Thanks a lot!

This was just what I needed to convert a ton of pages to projects and posts. My one concern was that it wasn't a physical move but it appears to me it's moving over all my content properly. As a test I tried disabling the plugin and everything stayed where it was moved. THANK YOU!

I frequently switch a front-page piece to a post and vice versa. This plugin does the job perfectly.

One thing that really annoys me is one-stars people have given. Would you like a YouTube video showing the install of the plugin and usage? Also what do you think about an "Ask for help" link in the plugin list? If you have these, maybe we could collaborate on adding it to the public plugin page, so that there is no excuse to < 4-5 star this plugin? Again. Great plugin.

If you have imported or added loads of posts in the wrong post type, you needn't curse. Just install and convert the posts to the needed one. That's what this plugin does for me. Has saved my bacon so many times. Highly recommended.

This plugin worked seamlessly with around 150 pages that I needed converted to posts. For some reason this plugin is not supported on Not sure why.
