Editorial Calendar

The Editorial Calendar makes it possible to see all your posts and drag and drop them to manage your blog.

3.2

We now have a new option for specifying the default status of a new post and documented the option for specifying the default time of a post.

The calendar is now doing a better job of reporting errors when it can't parse the post information from the blog.

3.1.1

This version is exactly the same as version 3.1, but it's been fully tested against WordPress 3.9.

3.1

The calendar now adds the category slugs for each post as a class for the line of that post in the calendar.

The calendar has a new option called edcal_custom_posts_public to control if the calendar shows for private custom posts or not.

3.0

This version makes a few small bug fixes to work well with WordPress 3.8. This includes showing the screen options with some better formatting and deleting posts from the drafts drawer properly.

2.9

Version 2.9 is another testing release. This version makes sure everything works great with WordPress 3.7.1.

2.8

Version 2.8 is all about testing. This version makes sure everything works great with WordPress 3.6 and jQuery 2.0. It also has a couple of small bug fixes.

2.7

The calendar is now available in Italian thanks to Lorenzo Boldorini who blogs at http://www.webqbe.it.

Changed all calls of the jQuery live method to use the new on method so the calendar will keep working when WordPress upgrades to jQuery 1.9.

The Mozilla team is now using the Editorial Calendar in one of their blogs and performed a security review of the calendar. They found a couple of potential issues which were fixed in this release. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738112

The Editorial Calendar is now stripping all tags out of post titles created from the calendar. This fixes a potential security issue found by the Mozilla security testing team. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738112

We are now preventing a potential SQL injection attack with the start date and end date filter when querying posts. This fixes a potential security issue found by the Mozilla security testing team. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738112

We are adding an extra check to make sure that authors can't delete a post created by another author. This fixes a potential security issue found by the Mozilla security testing team. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=738112

2.6

Fixed some layout issues with the previous and next calendar buttons in WordPress 3.5.

We are now properly saving new posts in the drafts drawer in WordPress 3.5.

Added unit tests to cover creating a new post in the drafts drawer.

Added a few performance improvements to the calendar like making sure we only load our code in the admin console.

2.5

The calendar is now handling the post ID in the same way for each call it uses to get data about each post when returning post data to the calendar to avoid some PHP warnings.

The calendar is now more careful about PHP warnings so it still works if the blog is set to show PHP warnings.

The unit tests are now using the correct CSS reference so they show up properly.

Moved the setting for the default post time to the edcal.php so it's easier to change without recompiling the JavaScript.

The calendar now supports Russian thanks to Danny Zawacki and Lyudmila Kostryka. Danny blogs at http://dannyzawacki.com

We have started to namespace css classes to avoid conflicts with other plugins & themes.

2.4

Creating a new unscheduled draft is now working properly from the calendar.

2.3

The calendar is now loading relative URLs for CSS, JavaScript, and image files using the right API so they load properly when using SSL.

2.2.1

Fixed a memory leak in the calendar where the calendar doesn't load if you have too many posts in your blog.

2.2

The calendar is using JavaScript compression to load less data and run faster.

We've added a new mechanism to load the unscheduled drafts which spaces out the loading so the calendar responds super fast even when you have hundreds of unscheduled drafts.

Added a new button to jump to the last post in the calendar.

Added a namespace to fix a small issue of potential JavaScript file conflict with wp_enqueue_script().

2.1

The calendar now moves posts from the drafts drawer to the main calendar properly on blogs with the alternate functionality of the date function.

The calendar can now display up to eight weeks at a time instead of just five.

2.0

The calendar now has a new major feature, the "drafts drawer," a post staging area where we make all unscheduled posts available to drag onto the calendar. You can also now drag posts from the calendar back into the drafts drawer to "un-schedule" them.

Moved around functions in the js and css to be a bit more readable, and added table of contents to css file.

Updated css of Screen Options to be more core WordPress.

1.9.1

The calendar is no longer blocking typing in the calendar quick edit dialog.

1.9

The calendar is now scrolling in the right direction with the up and down arrows keys.

1.6

The calendar is now setting the correct post time for manual set times at noon or midnight instead of changing it by 12 hours.

The up, down, page up, and page down keys are now working properly for moving around in the text in the quick edit dialog.

The calendar is now translated into Swedish. Thanks to Johan Landström.

1.5

The post time field in the quick edit dialog is now editable so you can specify any time you want instead of having to pick in 30 minute increments.

The calendar is now translated into German. Thanks to Matthias Nattke who uses the Editorial Calendar on his site Kikamagazin Bloggt.

The calendar is now supporting a special post type "edcal_show_calendar_" to make sure certain custom post types don't show up in the calendar.

1.4

  • We are now showing the full post content in the quick edit dialog even if there is a more tag so we don't overwrite the post without the full post content.

1.3

  • We are now disabling the save button on the quick edit dialog after it is pressed and before the post saves to prevent duplicate posts if the user presses the button twice in a row.

1.1

  • Changed the text of the edit link on published posts from Republish to Edit.

1.0

0.9

  • Made it easier to see the first day of the month using a special header and background color.
  • Changed to a lighter gradient for the calendar header to match the new theme of WordPress 3.0.

  • The calendar will now use the WordPress preference for the first day of the week and fall back on the server locale if it isn't set.
  • The calendar is also using the WordPress preferences for time format.
  • The calendar is now loading JavaScript libraries for just the calendar page. That makes other pages load faster and avoids potential JavaScript conflicts with other plugins.
