Details

Entry To Page Converter is a plugin for Movable Type 4 that enables you to convert Entries into Pages.

Pages are a new feature in MT4 that you can use to create pages that are not really "entries." In previous versions of Movable Type, many people used entries for such pages. Now that MT4 has "pages," you can use this plugin to easily convert those old entries into pages. By the way, you can also do the reverse, convert Pages into Entries.

Compatibility

Movable Type versions: 4.3

Mark - can this plugin do the reverse? Convert pages into entries?

Byrne, as the last sentence above says, “By the way, you can also do the reverse, convert Pages into Entries”.

I’ve used this plugin from Mark in both sides and it worked like a charm.

What is nice about it is, as he is also mentioning above, that you would convert entries to pages, but also pages to entries, which makes reorganizing projects a breeze.

  1. Do you need to 301 the entry?
  2. Do the comments also follow?
  3. Does it work with MT 5.+?

Hi Michael,

  1. Manually adding a 301 redirect is probably a good idea. Once the conversion has taken place, the published URL will be based on the template mapping for that type (Entry or Page).

  2. Yes, comments are moved with the Entry or Page.

  3. Possibly, I haven’t tested it on MT5+. Its quite possible that it could “just work”, but I am not sure.
