"Invalid Post Type" example:

Posts => Filter by "Press Release" + checkmark ALL + Edit + Apply + I change the author name + Apply:


I basically want to change all Press Release author names. That's it. But I keep getting "Invalid Post Type" error.

  • Do you have any plugins installed? What theme?

  • Custom theme with a handful of functions inside functions.php. Currently debugging with all plugins disabled. Bulk Edit works fine with Twenty Fourteen theme. Nothing special in my custom theme--but is there a gotcha I should be aware of? Is there a known limitation? Thanks

  • Something is using an array as if it were a string. I have a hard time believing that Core code is doing that.

I've found a solution for me. A function from my functions.php file was in conflict with my filter admin.

I had to find where was my error, for that I just cut and paste my function one by one and test again and gain till I found my conflict function.

In my case I had to put my function in a conditional tag:


  //Your conflict function


So Your function will be executed only on the theme and not in your admin.
