The calendar has been created to give you a clear view of your posts. This feature also allows you to publish and plan posts for each day of the month. How can you use it effectively? Let’s take a look.

2. Under the post editor section, you can find a “view type”. Click on it to open the drop-down menu and choose “calendar”.
3. Now, you can see the calendar view.
The second one is simply using the subpage on the postfity panel.
You can either do it by clicking the “calendar” in the main menu here:

If you want it to be more precise, you can choose either the “week” or “day” view, which are shown below.
You can find there four navigation buttons:
The first one returns the view to today’s month/week/day.
The second one is a small calendar, where you can choose an appropriate date.
The last two buttons help you move between months/weeks/days.

Moving your posts
There are two options to move your posts. The first one is available simply by grabbing the post you want to move and dragging it over the place you want it to be published.
The second one is about replacing the dates of two posts. To do that, grab one post and hover it over the second post you want to change it with. The replacing icon will show up. If you drop it there, your posts will be replaced. I will show it in three steps below.
