This module is almost exactly what I've been looking for! However, I would really like for it to be able to bulk convert posts from the Content page. I converted a 300+ Page (not blog posts) WordPress site over to Drupal with the wp2drual module and it pushed all of the Pages into the Blog node :-(. Now I've got to manually modify 300+ pages into the proper node type PLUS recreate the original page hierarchy...

How did you know I would search for the same thing 16 hours later. I've exactly the same problem. My suggestion would be to integrate this possibility in the content page. There you have check boxes already in place and if you add "Change node-type" in the list of the "Update options" it would integrate nicely.

How does this sound?

I'm eager to know when this would be possible.
Thanks in advance

For use at admin/content/node adds operations like
- Set type to Page
- Set type to Story

function nodetype_node_operations() {
  $operations = array();
  if (user_access('change node types')) {
    $node_types = node_get_types();
    foreach ($node_types as $type => $info) {
      $operations['change-'. $type] = array(
        'label' => t('Set type to @type', array('@type' => $info->name)),
        'callback' => 'node_mass_update',
        'callback arguments' => array('updates' => array('type' => $type)),
  return $operations;

This patch for 6.x

About 5.x branch - this batch operation should be written as function!

Then, It is not possible the bulk "Change node type" in drupal 5.x with this module?

Thank you!

@capitanZ everything possible but what for :) It's a lot of code to produce for old branch

Yeah, but 5.x has a large install base...

Hmmm, I'm getting the following error when I try to change the node type of several nodes:

warning: call_user_func_array() []: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 'node_mass_update' was given in /mysite/sites/default/modules/views_bulk_operations/views_bulk_operations.module on line 532.

VBO 6.x-1.5
NodeType 6.x-1.0 with applied patch

Seems that must be included in order for this to work. I've attached an updated patch.

Sorry, I'm still a newbee in drupal.

Where do I put the batch-file, or what do I do with it.
Or do I have to put the function into the template.php?

I have to change so many content-types, so that I really would appreciate some hints.

@reaneyk my patch from #6 is for standard admin/content/node so there's no need to include because it's done already
but for VBO it's required (I never used VBO before)

We added Views Bulk Operation support as well as Rules module support (as a trigger) to this for a client (on top of the configurable content types from the patch). We are planning on contributing the changes back to this project if the maintainer is interested.

thank you for the patch - #13 applies cleanly and works fine!

I'd love to see this in the next release of the 'Nodetype' module, as well as VBO support (#18)!

Greetings, -asb
