Hi there, I was wondering if there was a way to add the Category as a column in planners table? I like to schedule my posts so as to vary the categories, so it would be nice to see the due date and category in the same view.

You can do that. Take the code here and add it as a new plugin: And take the code here and replace the file /includes/post-planner-dashboard-widget.class.php in your post planner plugin directory.

Thank you! I’ll give it a try!

can i use postplanner on front end? can i use it on products? I would like to use it for creating products with multivendors? I’m trying to piggyback the functionaity of assigning users to posttype via during creation…Be nice if say the assgned person approve or reject assignmenrt and so if a person was creating a product that had commssions set to assigned users/authors then the assigned user could accept or decline ….

No, the only front-end is the display of upcoming items with the widget. I’ll add the approve/reject to the requested feature list, but that doesn’t mean it will definitely be added. You could possible use it for products if they are a public custom post type, but it will still be only the same elements that are for a post (no separate price fields or anything).


Can you tell me how can I prevent Contributor role from creating new Planner?

Generally I just want them to be able to view and create content thru new Post. I have installed the Members plugin (Justin Tadlock), however I was not able to disable the Add New Planner for Contributor.

Can you assist?

Thanks, yeeloon

Sorry, I missed the email notification for this. Is Disable Default User Roles set to Yes under Settings > Post Planner > Advanced? If you disable the edit_planners capability, they can’t create a new one (although the button still shows up on the Edit Post page.. that’s a bug I just found).

Hi @seaserpentstudio,

It is still possible. FYI, I’m running on latest WP 4.5.3 on my localhost. I’ve set Contributor as default role upon sign up.

Can you possibly share other possible settings or configs needed to disable from Create New Planner for a Contributor role?

Thanks, yeeloon

The only special settings I have are Disable Default User Roles set to yes. If you go to the Planners tab under Users > Roles and uncheck everything for a contributor, does that work to not allow them? Then from there maybe you could identify which capability is not working as you expect.

If that doesn’t work, where are they being allowed to create a new Planner? Ex: is the menu still showing up, or is it someplace else.

If a post is assigned and then goes past its deadline without being completed, can it be set up so that the admin receives an email notification? Are past-due assignments flagged in some way in the system?

There’s nothing in the plugin that would flag it or send notifications such as that.

Our post planner is stripping all formatting in the main textarea. What should we check? Our regular posts do not do that.

Is this on the Edit Planner page? Or when you’re editing a Post with a Planner attached? I see that Insert Selection isn’t preserving formatting, but I’m not sure that’s what you’re referring to.

I fixed it. I wish Envato would allow us to delete comments. =)

1/Does this plug-in function by a multisite?

2/Does this plug-in function in PHP7.1?

It works on multi-site. It has a set of planners on each site.

There is a deprecated notice in PHP 7 but it still functions properly.


Can a user with the “contributor” role assign the task/post to themselves?

As an administrator I need to create tasks and that the users (contributor) themselves are assigned tasks.


Yes, they are able to, although it may be different if you have modified the roles for contributors using a plugin such as Members. You can also turn off default permissions for Planners and use something like Members to set specific access.

Thanks for your answer.

Could you see a screenshot where i can see how a user (contributor) accepts or self-assigns a task / post?

Thank you very much.

It’s nothing very customized, just a quick edit field or a meta box field that lists users. They can choose themselves. and


Pre-sale question, does this compatible with all themes ?

Can i assign specific post/page to specific user/users ?

Notification when post updated ?

Custom Statuses for post/pages like Pending preview assigned to this user, need photo, new idea created, etc… and also permissions for users like updating only, edit only without updated the published page, publishing, etc..

Thank you in advance.

If it’s something I can’t or won’t fix, then I would approve the refund.


I just installed the plugin, and it didnt work :/ when i click on add planner its not showing anything how to publish or where to save just a blank page nothing is showing any idea ?

Is there a way to send email notifications to the user a post has been assigned to? Or send email notifications once an assigned has been reassigned to a different user?

We set up what the email template should look like, but I don’t see a place that those emails send

Yes, we reassign it as it moves through our editorial process. But, it’s not sending these notifications at all. Thank you!

Is Email Assignments to User set to Yes under Settings > Post Planner > Advanced? The plugin uses the wp_mail function, are you able to receive other emails from WordPress such as password resets? It won’t send if the person who assigned it is the same person it was assigned to. I can’t replicate the problem.

It is the weirdest thing! Ever since the day you sent this message, the notifications have been working perfectly. Not sure what could have possibly changed, but I’ll take it. I will let you know if we have any further issues. Thank you!
