Im not sure if this is the place for this thread but annyway...

Im planning on developing a little project of mine and Ive decided to use Wordpress, at least in the Beta stages.

Im looking for a Wordpress plugin that allows for posts to be organized by a custom inputed date rather than by date posted. For example, if each post is an event...the most upcoming events by date are listed first...

Anyway, If anyone has an idea or other recommendation I would much appreciate it. Also, if you know of other plugins that would be great for event listings, please share! thanks!

You can just query for future_posts, since you'll be adding them in advance as they're "upcoming."

Like so:
Code:
query_posts('&post_status=publish,future&order=ASC')

Thanks Jordan, I had thought about doing something like this but I don't use Wordpress that much so I was a bit unsure of its capabilities :P

Hah, it's fine. There's always stuff I come across that I never knew about prior or just hadn't gotten around to trying out .

On Wordpress, I think you can choose the date you want to publish your post (if it's what you want to do). On the top right corner of Wordpress editing page, find "publish immediately", click "edit" and choose the date you want it published.

*facepalm* It's called scheduled posts. He's not asking how to create a scheduled post but rather how to run a query for 'em and organize them from current to future (descending.)
