Way to change over 5000 pages Page Type without clicking them one by one?

Permalink
Hi there,

does anyone have suggestion of how I could change Page Type of very many pages without clicking them one by one?

If this can't be do I hope someone at least has solution of how I could filter page list results with Page Template instead?

Right now I have:
$list->filterByCollectionTypeHandle('optional_equipment');

but all the pages have a Page Type of "Page" so I would have to change them all to "Optional equipment"

Cheers, Petro

You need to get the results of the list and loop trough the pages.
foreach ($pages as $page) {
    $page->update(['ptID' => 23]); // fill in your page type id
}

It might be a good idea to paginate the result so you don’t run into memory issues.

If you know the before and after page type ID, you could write a SQL statement to hack this directly in the database from the MySQL command line or phpMyAdmin.

Not the most correct way of doing it, but quick for a one-off change.

That is allot faster indeed the Query would look something like this.

UPDATE Pages
SET ptID = 21
WHERE ptID = 5;


21 - the new Page Type ID
5 - the old Page Type ID
