Manage & Schedule Upcoming WordPress Posts – Free Plugin

One of my new year resolutions for WPLift was to build up some scheduled posts as drafts so I dont have to write everyday – I have a few other projects that need my full attention but I dont want the posting frequency to dip here on WPLift – I always aim for 20 posts per month, or one each week day. WordPress has scheduling built-in but its not the best system, if you want to change the dates you have to dig back through your posts, I wanted an easier way to manage them so I went searching.

The plugin I found to handle this is called Editorial Calendar and its perfect for my needs – here is their description:

Did you remember to write a post for next Tuesday? What about the Tuesday after that? WordPress doesn’t make it easy to see when your posts are scheduled. The editorial calendar gives you an overview of your blog and when each post will be published. You can drag and drop to move posts, edit posts right in the calendar, and manage your entire blog.

Here is an overview of the plugin by the author :


  1. See all of your posts and when they’ll be posted.
  2. Drag and drop to change your post dates.
  3. Quickedit post titles, contents, and times.
  4. Publish posts or manage drafts.
  5. Easily see the status of your posts.
  6. Manage posts from multiple authors.

You can try the plugin for yourself here.

  1. Thanks for the tip, I’ll have to try the calendar plugin because scheduling post is also one of my new year resolution

  2. Does it allow to create new custom post statuses? I installed Edit Flow because I have several writers and I need something with both things: calendar and an extra post status.
