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.

Unterstütze Arten

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

  • Seite zu Beitrag
  • Beitrag zu Seite
  • Beitrag zu benutzerdefiniert
  • 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.

Unsichtbare Beitragsarten wie Revisionen, Menüs, usw. werden absichtlich ausgeschlossen. Aber wenn du auf unsichtbare Beitragsarten zugreifen möchtest, kannst du die Grenzen durch Verwendung des Filters ‚pts_post_type_filter‘ anpassen.


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.

Warum sollte ich das brauchen?

Du musst ausgewählt eine Beitragsart zur anderen ändern.

Ruiniert das meine Taxonomie-Zuweisungen?

Sollte es nicht. Das Plugin ändert nur die ‚post_type‘-Eigenschaft eines Beitrags.

I made a large amount of pages instead of them being posts. I was able to quickly fix them in a matter of seconds. Awesome job with this plugin! Thanks.

I had multiple post types I needed to combine and I was dreading the process of doing it manually or writing a custom script to handle it. This plugin solved my problem in seconds!

When you effectively use this plugin to convert from a page to an article you make a total mess. Let me explain - firstly the category becomes blank, and it doesn't even go to uncategorized or let you select it, so you can't even filter the pages you just transformed to articles. Annoying, but could do. What I really can't work with is that it doesn't change the template from page to post, if you try to open your newly transformed "post" after you switched it from being a page, the template will still have "page type-page" in the class, therefore using your (potentially) customized styles inherited from pages and not posts, plus on top of that, which is even worse, sidebar won't show up either because of that (at least, on TwentySeventeen theme, but I think on others too). Big nope unfortunately, good effort but not tweaked properly to be actually useful, uninstalling.
