What can we help you with?


Create a New WordPress Post

When you first connect your WordPress blog to CoSchedule, your calendar will be populated with the posts you currently have in WordPress.

However, you can use CoSchedule to create blog posts on the calendar that will then sync and show up in WordPress. Though you cannot write the content of the post from CoSchedule, you can create and determine its title, author, publish date, status, category, social messages, and more.

Create a New Blog Post


To create a new Blog Post, click on the day you want the post to be scheduled. The "Create New" box will open. Click Blog Post to start a new WordPress blog post.

Enter a title in which you want your blog post to be named as. You can also add a description to describe your blog post. This can be edited later. Click Create post.

Inside the Content Editor, click the WordPress editor.
