No. This plugin will only change the ‘post_type’ property of a post.

How can I enable this Plug in?

Install and make this plugin active

Can I modify the post type on my existing article or post?

Yes. Select your article, click edit and find the post type.


DO NOT USE on your website; this completely removed my custom post types, fortunately I have a backup. Please fix, update or remove this plugin from the repository. A total waste of time. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.
When you save a "Field Group" with ACF this acction Causes fields to disappear and be deleted with no option to recover This does not happen with the other plugin "Post Type Switcher" NOTE:I did not receive any response from the Developer, I change my review to 1 star.
The feature to change custom post types works great, however, it comes at the cost of preventing new custom post types to be published and saved after edits. My plugins "Meta Box" and "Smart Sections" especially could not function after turning on this plugin. Too bad, it looks promising. I do have to shift to a plugin that offers the same core feature without breaking my plugins.
