Lets say i have 100 posts. And i would like to lowercase the title. but only 70 of it. I cant use text-transform or mb_strtolower. Is there anyway to download posts and lowercase the title with microsoft word and reupload it?

  • Why would you want to do this? – Tom J Nowell Jul 8 '12 at 22:16
  • And why would you not ask how to do it in css/html rather than MS Word? – Tom J Nowell Jul 8 '12 at 22:16
  • becouse i dont want to transform all posts, just half of it. when i add code to css it transforms all post. am i wrong? – 1907 Jul 8 '12 at 22:19
  • Putting it in MS Word would and back would be more effort then just using quickedit or doing it in the browser. – Tom J Nowell Jul 8 '12 at 22:38
  • Also titles should be using title case, not all lower or all upper case, what you want is bad english, and poor for readability – Tom J Nowell Jul 8 '12 at 22:39

Assuming this question is related to Wordpress, here is answer :- You can update the titles directly into your mySQL database using simple update function.

one of my user publishs all his posts uppercase (title) i want to edit them and make it normal. –

Using some conditional statements as I mentioned in this code, you can restrict the update for particular user(replace 'user_id').

UPDATE wp_posts SET post_title=LOWER(post_title) WHERE post_author = "user_id"

This will transform all post titles into lowercase by that user.

WP Title Case plugin would a much simpler solution. It automatically transforms titles across your website to show proper case.

For example:

"the quick brown fox" will appear as "The Quick Brown Fox"

"i like wordpress so much" will appear as "I Like WordPress so Much"
