Connect WordPress to Your Calendar

Connecting CoSchedule to your self-hosted site is easy! You can use our auto-installer to install the CoSchedule plugin for you.

Why Would You Want To Connect WordPress to CoSchedule?

Connecting your WordPress site to CoSchedule will allow all of your WordPress posts (including Posts, Pages, and Custom Post Types too) to automatically appear on your calendar. Plus while you are editing in WordPress you will be able to add Attachments such as a Social Campaign to your posts and write your social messages right along with your blog post. If you like to create drafts in places like the CoSchedule Text Editor, Google Docs, or Microsoft Word you can then convert them automatically to WordPress posts.
