We have roughly 18,000 listings that were imported as custom post types. We are using formidable to allow users to create new posts from the front end (this works great – perfect).
Our problem lies in finding a way to create formidable entries (including proper author) for the imported listings so that our current userbase can edit these listings.
I know we can individually “create an entry” if we edit each of the 18000 entries one after another, however I was wondering if there was a way to run a function that loop over all posts in a given post type and create a formidable entry that our users could then edit these legacy imported posts from the front end like they would new ones.
This is a one time thing that has to be done.. but am unsure of the best way to accomplish this. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.. we are looking at a enormous undertaking if we hae to do this one by one.
Thank in advance
