Change theme for multiple pages in bulk

Permalink
I'm needing to change the theme on my site and it already has about 70-80 pages. I've switched over the odd pages such as home and now have a whole lot of right sidebar and forum pages. Is there a way to change the theme for multiple pages in bulk.

If you go to the themes page in the dashboard, you can select a theme as the sitewide default.

You can also go into the 'Page Search' section of the Dashboard, filter/search for the pages you want to change, check their checkboxes and use the Design option from the drop down above the checkboxes (which says '** With Selected').

It's worth exploring the options in this dashboard page, you can do all sorts of searching tricks using the Advanced Search options.

Worked great for what turned out to be 129 pages. Huge help. Thanks!

What I just did is copy the template I wanted over the default.php in my package theme :o)

Might not work for everyone but certainly set the correct default template!

Having that Design option in the search dropdown would have been FAR nicer though
