Editorial Calendar
Can it use custom content types? (5 posts)

    I have a lot of my content in custom content types, not just blog posts. This would be greatly useful to me if it could show custom content types in addition to blog posts. Is this possible or are there any plans to build this functionality in at a later time?

    The Editorial Calendar has full support for custom post types. It shows a special calendar for each post type. You can see what it looks like on the last screen shot here:

    thank you for the speedy reply! That's lovely and useful! But I meant showing all the different custom content types on the all on the same calendar...

    There's no way to show all post types in a single calendar right now. We considered making it work that way (and actually had it working in an unreleased version), but it just didn't seem right. WordPress separates different post types and we felt like we should follow the same pattern.

    I'm curious how you would want this feature to work. What would your general workflow be? Do you want to see the post type for each post on the calendar? Would you want to change them?

    Thanks,
    Zack

    I use custom content types to separate my blog posts from my web comics posts at rachelthegreat.com. But often the two are tightly related. For instance, I might post a blog asking people what they want to see next week or promoting last week's comic. It would help me visualize the information better to see it all in one place. I wouldn't want to change the content types with the interface, just see how they all interact with each other.

    My two cents! Thank you for getting back to me!
