The Sweet Plugin: Dashboard Scheduled Posts

3 Comments

Today’s Sweet Plugin adds a new widget to the WordPress Dashboard that pulls in any posts that are scheduled to publish at a later date. It’s a nice way to get a bird’s eye view of what is coming up next on your blog, particularly if you blog a lot.

The video is embedded at the top of this post’s page, with more about the plugin below.

Dashboard Scheduled Posts

I’ve made no secret of my love for simple Dashboard tweaks. A good chunk of Sweet Plugin episodes are all about small tweaks to the WordPress admin. This one’s no different: Dashboard Scheduled Posts is a handy plugin that pulls any scheduled posts into a handy Dashboard widget.

Sound simple? It is, which is what makes it so awesome.

Video recorded with version 2.0 of Dashboard Scheduled Posts, running WordPress 3.1.3.

About the plugin author

This plugin is developed by Alex (or Viper007Bond) who works for Automattic. He has developed a number of plugins on the WordPress.org Plugin Directory.

Who else loves his username, by the way? Shaken, not stirred.

Is your plugin worthy?

  1. Hi Ryan,

    Just watched the daily plugin video and the developer name and nickname you credit to this plugin is different to the name and nickname you show in the post…

    Just thought I’d give you the heads up. 🙂

    BTW Great site and love The Daily Plugin videos.

  2. I had frankly completely forgotten about that plugin. It’s been a few years since I touched it. Glad to hear it’s still working as expected though (thanks WordPress API!). 🙂

    And for a bit of backstory, I picked my username back in the late 90’s when I was first getting on AOL as a young teenager. The username stuck, especially since more people know me by Viper than know me by Alex.
