Calendar Posts

A powerful yet simple plugin for adding calendar functionality to posts. Great for using posts as events and calendar inputs.

How do I use this plug-in?

Once installed you'll find the calendar-post box on when you edit or create posts. Pick dates to make the post available in the calendar. Set up the Calendar Posts widget under Appearace > Widgets and posts will appear in a Calendar in your sidebar.

Where is the widget?

Under wp-admin/widgets.php. It's called Calendar Posts.

Where is the settings panel?

There's none. You configure the calendar on each widget directly. There are some configurable vars at the top inside the plugin's php-script file (for developers).

Where is that CSS code mentioned in the description?

It's here:

.cp-month {
    padding: 8px 0px 5px 0px;
    font-weight: bold;
    font-size: 1.2em;
.cp-date-div {
    margin: 0.4em 0px;

The month names are shown in English even though WordPress is set to a different language?

Yes. Since PHP is showing month abbrevations wrong (typographicly) you have to set custom month names on your own at the top of the script file. Sorry. This is something I had to do since PHP's abbrevations always appear with three letters which is wrong.

Can I change how month names are shown?

Yes. This can be acheived inside the plugins php file. You should know some PHP and you'll find how to add your own month abbrevations at the top of the script file. More details there.
