A WordPress plugin that will convert the post format to Link if a link custom field is set
Branch: master

Convert WordPress Post Format Based on a Custom Field

This WordPress Plugin will convert your post format if there is content in a custom field.

I created this plugin because unfortunately, the fantastic MarsEdit does not support setting the WordPress post format within the app. I use it for link blogging - if I have a link set in my custom field, WordPress will set the post format to Link.


  1. Save this plugin into your wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Open set-post-format.php and edit $custom_field and $post_format to be the name of the custom field you want to use, and the format you want it to change to
  3. Activate the plugin
