Something I see asked all the time here at Wealthy Affiliate is new members that want to know how to change pages to posts and posts to pages. This is such a common mistake to make and one that I made too when I first joined WA and built my first websites from scratch.

I have seen so many members suggest that you just copy your page content, create a new post and paste your content in... then go back and delete the page.

There is however a much quicker way to do it and that is using the plugin Post Type Switcher. At the touch of a button you can convert pages to posts or posts to pages.

I hope you have found this helpful :) It certainly saved me from copying over about 15 pages to being posts!

If you have any questions please leave a comment.

great video!!!
I was not sure what I should use as a post or a page. So I was changing back and forth. I am going to install that plugin and give it try.

Thanks

Hello Lynne

My new website keeps giving me a message it is losing connection, I am wondering is this a website problem or server problem since WordPress can't find any website problems?

I've never had an error message like that? Maybe just pop support a query and see if they can assist? I have no idea!

Hi Lynne
support can't find any problems with the site, I never receive this message on my other sites and I had my internet service come and install all new equipment and so I am pretty sure it is not on my end.

this site has been a problem from day one

Thanks again Lynne, I didn't think it was possible, but it is so simple. Do pages need to have the title and description filled in in the SEO portion or just key words? I have it set up now with my About Rae Anne page as a page instead of a post and a page on hunting into a post. Wa - La!

Thanks again,
Rae Anne

Hey Lynne, I have a question for you, more like a request. Can you help me figure out why I can't get Google Adsense; it has been the bane of my existence forever. I get this awkward error message when I apply and I don't even get the full code. Can you help?

Hey Rodney :) Do you have an approved Adsense account? The way I remember it is that I applied for an account and I got the go ahead by Adsense and I was told to put the code into my sidebar and then they rejected my account over and over again. Are you trying to put your code into the sidebar or somewhere else?

I follow it exactly and then I get this error message saying that there's another account in my name with a similar or same email address which is bogus; I partially think that's what stopping me and I'm not sure if anything else is.

That would be a query you would need to direct to Adsense which is going to be tough I think - they don't really give you ways to contact them if I remember correctly. I do know that you can only have one account so if there is any confusion with 2 accounts they will block it for sure. I wish I had a solution for you but I don't.
