Converting a 'sister page/under page' into a blog entry.

  1. Is it not possible, to make a sister page into a blog entry?

    As og taking the entire sister page, including pictures and galleries, and then just turning it into a blog entry, removing it from it's sister page/under page spot?

    And, is it not possible to re-use or move a galleri from anywhere on the site, into an other blog entry?

    The blog I need help with is mariamiss6.wordpress.com.

  2. We can usually use the Copy a Post feature but we have had another member state it's not working. If it's not working for you then you will have to create a new posts and manually copy and paste the contents and add the categories and tags.

    An image gallery will display a set of thumbnail images attached to a particular post or page. When clicked, gallery images are displayed in a full-size carousel view. If you upload images using the Add Media button above the post/page editor, they will be attached automatically. If you want to include images that you’ve already uploaded, you’ll need to attach them to a post or page before they will appear in a gallery. http://en.support.wordpress.com/images/gallery/

  3. The 'copy a post' works the other way around I think. Just not for converting a page into a blogentry....

    Copying the post it self, is not really a big problem... the problem is, if you have pictures comming in a specific order, in specific places between texsting, then it becomes a bit difficult, or rather timeconsuming, to go to gallery, and find the right pictures, and then reusing them one by one...

  4. You should be able to copy the html of your page, then paste that code into the html edotpr of a new post.

    You'd want to delete the page with the duplicate information once you have published the new post. (or it may be better to provide a link from the page to the post so that potential readers won't get a 404 not found message—the page would not have to remain in navigation)

  5. Oh, it's 1:30 am and I didn't read the OP's post carefully enough: ignore the above post…
    time to hit the pillows here.

  6. To turn a static page into a post, you need to copypaste its entire content from the HTML editor of the page to the HTML editor of the post.

    Images that had been inserted individually will be preserved. A gallery won't, because a gallery normally works with images "attached" to a page/post (that is, images uploaded from your computer via the Add Media tool of that page/post). So you'll have to re-upload the gallery images.

    "And, is it not possible to re-use or move a galleri from anywhere on the site, into an other blog entry?"
    Yes, provided the original gallery post/page remains a published one: you get the ID of that post/page and add it to the gallery shortcode in the HTML editor of the new post. See here:

    You are great :)
