Hi I am working on a site that has over 1500 posts. Many of those posts are in the gallery post format, but I need to change them to the "Standard" format to work with the clients current theme.

Is there any way I can automate this? enter image description here

  • Back-up your db
  • Add this code to your functions.php file from your theme:

    $all_posts = get_posts(array(
      'numberposts' => -1,
      'post_type'   => 'post',
    foreach($all_posts as $p)
      set_post_format($p->ID, 'standard');
  • Refresh
  • Remove the code

Or with a SQL command:

UPDATE `term_relationships`
  SET term_taxonomy_id = 'standard_post_format_id'
  WHERE term_taxonomy_id = 'gallery_post_format_id'

Change standard_post_format_id and gallery_post_format_id with the IDs matching post format names from the term_taxonomy/terms tables
