Quite easily:

  1. Go to your Admin Panel --> Posts

  2. Select the posts you want to change back to drafts

  3. Under Bulk Actions Click on Edit Published to Draft-step01

  4. Under Status click on Draft and press Apply Published to Draft-step02

  5. Finished

If you have more posts, just go through them the same way. :)

  • Are there another way by MySQL in database, its fast than your steps ?? Oct 23, 2014 at 20:23

    @The15Seconds Sorry to say this (and please don't take it the wrong way) but: If you have a difficult time turning the posts back to draft in the first place, I would say avoid messing with the database Oct 23, 2014 at 20:27
