The Editorial Calendar makes it possible to see all your posts and drag and drop them to manage your blog.
This is one of the most helpful plugins I've used. It is so useful to help me schedule and manage my blog posts. I can't thank you enough.
thank u very much!!!
This plugin is so ingenious! Where did my life blog?
This is a fantastic, free option. I haven't yet found one for sale, so this is the bees knees.
Would very much like to see visual development; e.g. mouseover expands a day with multiple posts. Can be hard to work with because of the small cells.
Great plugin, but wish I can also see it on my dashboard.
Also, a prettier UI?
We have a site that needs to have 100s of articles scheduled and these articles can sometimes be scheduled out months ahead of time. Our editor kept the editorial calendar herself on paper but things like a change in publishing frequency or covering a trending topic would be a bear to rearrange the calendar on the site.
Now with this plugin, editorial calendar changes are super easy. Our editor would kiss the developers if she ever met the developers. ;)
In addition to posts, my theme support other types of posts (mini-posts) like videos, quotes, books, etc. These don't appear on the calendar, so it's not something I can use.
Super idea. I'd love it when it expands beyond simple posts to EVERYTHING scheduled.
Beautifully implemented solution for getting a quick glance at your posts schedule. Drag and Drop interface is gravy. Must have.
Just starting using this - but very very well done.
After jumping through hoops trying the slick but expensive 'premium' schedule plugins with similar (but way more restrictive) function, I found this little gem. This is the simplest, most intuitive and seemingly most robust one of the lot.
You view a visual Calendar in Posts, hover on a day and add new post. If you have existing scheduled posts, they are visible - and you can even drag and drop them onto a new date. You can also see Draft posts and drag them into the calendar!
A small caveat might be that creating a new post in the calendar shows only a title and content field - and has no category option. I think it uses the default WP one (i.e.: Uncategorised, or whatever you've renamed it to). However, because you can either quick edit or full edit directly from the calendar once you've created the new post, you have the usual WP post window and set category, add media and post format etc.
Because the plugin has no settings (and needs none!) and needs no setting up, the above is an extremely moot point.
This plugin is a gentle bit of genius. Hats off to the developers/designers - this is singly the best new WP plugin I have tried in ages.
(Although I don't want to laud it too much in case they start charging a fee for it! ;-)
