So... I initially created my about me as a post.

After upgrading my theme I need it as a page to add a 'Behind the Blog' (About me) section on my homepage.

Thank you all for your responses! You rock!

I did use the WordPress plugin to quickly change my post to a page.

As I explained below, I thought it would be more of a task to copy and paste because when I normally copy from more than one block when I paste I get html in it from the paragraph breaks, etc.

With that said, I came across a quick way to copy all content on a post or page in just a few clicks.

I am going to share this because some of you may not known this like me and it may help someone else.

Go to the post (or page) > edit > options (the 3 dots by the settings, the gear icon) >scroll down to copy all content.

Easy peasy!

Either way can get the job done very quickly and easily!

Great you have it figured out.

Thanks hun!

For me, I would copy and paste it into a new page. No need to set up and then disable a plugin. But whatever you find easier will work.

To be honest I thought it would be more daunting because I use blocks and sometimes when I copy and paste from more than one block I get the html for the paragraphs,etc.

With that said, I thought it would take longer. So I quickly used the WordPress plugin.

Now after doing this I learned that you can quickly copy all content of the post in just a couple clicks!

please checking at WA page admin, you will see Posts and Pages, if you create content from Page will don't show on your front website. if you create at Posts will show on your front website also create from WA content will arrived at Posts and the front of the website

Thanks hun!

I actually had a post created and needed to change the post over to a page.

Got it done! :)

The plugins work fine. Internally there's little difference between a post and a page. It really just changes a flag, and then your theme re-displays it.

Hi Lisa, I use a plugin for this, so much easier to do, also called Post Type Switcher. Have a great day, take care.

Thanks that is what I used to do it as well! I deactivated and deleted it once I was done. ;)

Hi Lisa

It's very easy to do it either way... but if you do it a lot (as I do) then you could try the "Post Type Switcher" plugin (which I use). It adds no page load overhead to your site.

But if you're only doing this occasionally, you don't need the plugin.

The reason I use this plugin regularly is that I set up each post as a page first, and then when I know it's ready I change it to a post.
The reason I follow this process is that when I publish a post, the publishing automatically triggers an email to people who subscribed to my website.
The thing is that it's very easy in WordPress to accidentally publish a post before it's ready, as I have done many times thereby triggering the email notification prematurely.

Thanks! It definitely is easy to accidentally do!

I initially created my about me as a post. I upgraded my theme and learned to use the about section feature on my homepage my about me had to be a page.

I used the post type switcher and deactivated and deleted it once I was done. 😀

Post type switcher When plugins are well coded, it should not be an issue.

Once you are done with it, you can deactivate and delete.

Thanks hun!

I didn't know I could delete and deactivate it. I just assumed once I installed it and switched it I would have to keep it.

No worries and most welcome!

Should I use a plugin or manually change a post to a page?

I did figure out the featured image issue with it not showing right on the homepage. (I am a bit OCD with stuff like that).

I went to my media reverted it back to original size, then scaled the image down. I had to scale it down to a certain size (I tried multiple sizes!) and boom it shows up on homepage correct!

🤩 I could just imagine you jumping for joy when it finally worked coz that would be me! I'm glad you fixed it!

Yes girl yes! My husband looked at me like I was stupid. 😂! Thank you!

I am going to look up my theme name (yep don’t remember it).🤪 and share what I scaled it to just in case someone else has the same issue.

Appreciate it!

No worries.

Thank you. :)

You're very welcome!

I am not sure how elaborate you wish to go
Here is a plugin you can even show your pins in your website.
Pinterest to WordPress - WordPress Pinterest Gallery Plugin

Thank you! :)

You are very welcome.

👋 Hi,

Oof! That's a bummer! I use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin for this or if you use Elementor, I believe you can adjust your global site settings there (but I'm not sure!). Also, if you go to settings -> media, you will see the sizes your images crop into.

Also, if you want to utilize Pinterest as a marketing method, you can add an image into your post so that you others can pin and collect. Another method is adding the Pin It button to your site. Lastly, you can manually add graphics to the Pinterest Platform itself and then just link it to the appropriate article/post.

I hope this answered your question,
💎Kimmy

Thanks Kimmy!

I will try a one of the recommended plugins. I have resized them, both the same and still showing up different!

Makes me want to pull my hair out! 🤪
