The Editorial Calendar makes it possible to see all your posts and drag and drop them to manage your blog.
An editorial calendar is simply a plan for your blog. It is thinking ahead about what you're going to write. There's a detailed explanation of editorial calendars at The Easy-to-Use Tool that Helps You Build a Breakthrough Blog from Copyblogger.
From time to time people write articles about the editorial calendar. We appreciate every one.
Check out our demo installation at Zack's WordPress Sandbox.
You can move around in the calendar using the arrows next to the months at the top or your mouse wheel. You can also move using your keyboard:
The editorial calendar follows the Week Starts On preference on the WordPress General Settings page. Choose the day you want and the calendar will use that day as the first day of the week.
The calendar is available in Brazilian Portuguese, Croatian, Czech, Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Lithuanian, Norwegian, Polish, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
Yes please! We are looking for translators. It only takes about 20 minutes. If you're interested please contact us.
After you use the calendar a few times we'll prompt you to let us collect a little data about your blog. Information like the size of your browser window and the number of posts you have per day help us make the calendar even better.
The collected data is all available to the public. Check out the Editorial Calendar Statistics.
The editorial calendar works differently based on your permissions.
You can see how it looks for different users on our Zack's WordPress Sandbox with the following users:
Each of these users has the password test.
Right now the calendar only supports posts. We're considering adding pages. If you would like to see pages show up in the calendar let us know.
If your blog has multiple authors the calendar will work just fine. You can show author names right in the calendar. Just look under screen options.
We are currently working on new features for multi-author blogs. If you have any ideas please contact us.
No. The calendar is only an administration tool. None of your readers will know you're running it unless you tell them.
Moving published posts can cause problems with some RSS feeds and is generally not a very popular thing to do. The calendar only allows you to move scheduled and draft posts.
