Edit Hub turns WordPress into a centralized web-based app for:
- Organizing your content and related media assets
- Facilitating collaborative content development
- Maintaining an editorial calendar
- Exporting content into a variety of useful formats
Edit Hub is more than just and editorial calendar app, and it’s more than just a place to collaboratively develop content. It’s both of those things in one place, which allows you to focus less on process and more on production.

Who is Edit Hub for?
Edit Hub was designed with communications professionals of all stripes in mind, but business owners, project managers, and just about anyone faced with the prospect of creating, refining, and publishing content will find it helpful—especially when the development of this content requires collaboration with others.
Perhaps you need to collect submissions for an organizational annual report? Or maybe you need to wrangle some content for a new website your company is developing? Edit Hub helps by acting as your command station for collecting, revising, and exporting this content.
How does it work?
Edit Hub has been designed as a WordPress theme. Once you’ve installed WordPress, simply upload the Edit Hub theme zip file and you’re off to the content managing races! You’ll be able to use Edit Hub anywhere you have access to a web browser.
Because you host Edit Hub like any WordPress installation, you’re in complete control and there’s no pesky monthly fees owed to yet another third-party web service.
And the best part? Edit Hub is free!
