WordPress. Custom posts are not editable

This tutorial is going to show you how to fix uneditable custom posts after the dump import on your WordPress template.

If you have imported the dumpfile and have such a problem:

Please do the following:

  1. Copy the name of your custom post menu. The name depends on  your template number. For instance, it’s called Works.
  2. Open your database with all tables and click on the “Searchtab.

  3. Paste the name of your custom post menu into the search field, select all tables and click on Go.

  4. From the list of the tables that is going to appear, the wp_post is the one you need to work on. It should have a Browse button next to it, click that button.

  5. On the next page, take a look at the post_type column results. You will notice that some names begin with lowercase and some with uppercase:

  6. All of them should be lowecases, so all you need to do to change them. You can do this manually or click on the SQL tab in your database menu

    and insert 

  7. UPDATE wp_posts SET post_type='lowecase post type name'  WHERE post_type='uppercase post type name';

    e.g, if your custom post type name in the post_type column is called our_works

    it should look like this

    and click on “Go

  8. Go back to your custom posts in the WordPress admin. You should see the “Edit” button now:
