Support » Plugin: Editorial Calendar » [Plugin: Editorial Calendar] Change default schedule time

  • I would like to be able to change the default scheduled time for posts – in my specific case I would like to change it from 10am to 2pm, I have tried changing (what I thought were) the relevant lines in date.extras.js from 1000 to 1400, but have not succeeded.

    Line 60:

    $D.strftime = function (format, time) {
            return new Date(time * 1400).$format(format);

    Line 77:

    $D.strtotime = function (time) {
            var d = $D.parse(time);
            d.addMinutes(d.getTimezoneOffset() * -1);
            return Math.round($D.UTC(d.getUTCFullYear(), d.getUTCMonth(), d.getUTCDate(), d.getUTCHours(), d.getUTCMinutes(), d.getUTCSeconds(), d.getUTCMilliseconds()) / 1400);

    What should I change to achieve this? And would it be possible to integrate a user option for this in future?

    Thank you for using the Editorial Calendar. Changing code to set the default post time is pretty easy. Look in edcal.js on line 706. That defines a function called addPost which looks like this:

    addPost: function() {

    var date = jQuery(this).parent().parent().attr(‘id’);

    var formattedtime = ’10:00′;
    if (edcal.timeFormat !== ‘H:i’) {
    formattedtime += ‘ AM’;

    var post = {
    id: 0,
    date: date,
    formatteddate: edcal.getDayFromDayId(date).toString(edcal.previewDateFormat),
    time: formattedtime
    return false;

    You can change the time here to whatever you want. The better change for supporting upgrades is to set this function from another file.

    Good luck,

    Thanks! Really simple when you know what you’re looking for.

    And thank-you very much for the great plugin, it’s changed the way I use WordPress and made it much easier to blog 🙂
