WordPress with CoSchedule

Connecting your WordPress site(s) to CoSchedule by installing the CoSchedule WordPress plugin 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.

Note: CoSchedule cannot be used with certain WordPress.com sites. You must have a Business plan or higher with WordPress.com in order to use CoSchedule.

WordPress Integration Details

When you first connect your WordPress site to CoSchedule, your calendar will be populated with the published and draft posts you currently have in WordPress. If you have an unscheduled draft, it will appear in your Ideas Bin.

You can then choose to create new WordPress posts either inside of CoSchedule or in WordPress and your calendar will automatically sync with your WordPress website.

Once your site has been connected, your calendar will automatically sync:

  • The latest created 500 drafts
  • The latest created 500 published posts
  • The latest created 500 scheduled posts

If you do not see a WordPress post on your calendar, open the post in your WordPress Admin and it will automatically sync.
