WordPress: Post Type Converter or Post Type Switcher

WordPress Plugins: Post Type Converter or Post Type Switcher or Convert Post Types..

I have looked at, and used, THREE different post type convertor plugins.

These are the types of plugins that allow you to change a Post to a Page or vice versa.

  • Post Type Switcher
  • Post Type Converter
  • Convert Post Types

I like to use a converter for the occassional post that I want to change to a page, for whatver reason.

The ideal one for me ended up as the Post Type Switcher

Details for the three options are shown below, with versions and installs as at 27 Aug 2015

Post Type Switcher

Use this if you need to selectively change a posts type from one to another, in the posts edit screen.

Post Type Converter

Post Type Converter Version 0.6 | By Voce Communications https://wordpress.org/plugins/post-type-converter/

Allows you to convert the post type of objects while in the edit screen

Convert Post Types

Convert Post Types Version 1.4 | By Stephanie Leary https://wordpress.org/plugins/convert-post-types/
Active Installs: 10,000+
This is a utility for converting lots of posts or pages to a custom post type (or vice versa) at once. If you’d rather do one at a time, use Post Type Switcher instead.

I just remembered, I have used FIVE of these plugins, not three.  These two shown below were the original ones that I used.
