Possibly the Best Editorial Calendar in WordPress

PublishPress is the WordPress plugin for people who really care about their content.

Do you really care about your WordPress content?

Yes? Then you know it’s hard to create consistent, high-quality posts.

We’ve just updated the Content Checklist add-on. The new version of the checklist allows you to set a maximum and minimum value for categories, tags and words. For example, you can now ask your users to write between 100 and 500 words, or add between 3 and 5 tags.

Say Hello to the Content Checklist for WordPress

Before you publish WordPress posts, do you have things you always check for?

  • A featured image?

These checks are really useful if you publish a lot of content. Without a checklist like this, it can be hard to make sure all your content has the features you need.
