SharePoint change document set and items content type to a new content type

I’ll put it simply:

This is a PowerShell script that you can use to change a content type of a library or list to another one. This script can identify between Document Sets and library or list items.


param (
[string]$WebsiteUrl = "http://portal.spdev.com/",
[string]$OldCTName = "DSTestCT",
[string]$NewCTName = "DSTestCT"
)

if ( (Get-PSSnapin -Name MicroSoft.SharePoint.PowerShell -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) -eq $null )
{
Add-PsSnapin MicroSoft.SharePoint.PowerShell
}
