Serial Links

Allows you to assign Links posts to a Serial, using custom fields, and then displays a list of all Links assigned to the same Serial in your single po

Instructions for use

Using the plugin

The plugin provides two methods: a shortcode and a template tag, either of which may be used. It is recommended that you use one or the other, but not both, in accordance with your needs and preferences.

Template tag: Add this template tag to your single post theme template file, typically single.php or index.php, wherever you want to display the list of posts. This tag must appear within the Loop.

<?php serial_links(); ?>

Shortcode: Add this shortcode directly into the post editor when writing or editing a post.

Configuration and set-up

Further information can be found at http://wordpress.ktree.com/serial-links-configuration.html and a comprehensive "how to" at http://wordpress.ktree.com/serial-links-plugin-tutorial.html

Configuring the Options page

In the Dashboard, go to Settings and open the Serial Links Configuration page.

List Display options. This is where you can customise the Serial Links heading and list of posts. The Heading is made up of three elements: "Text before Serial name" "Serial Name" "Text after Serial name".

Text before Serial name: Enter the text that you would like to appear in the Heading BEFORE the Serial name. If you don't want to show any text before the Serial name, just blank out the field before saving your settings.

Text after Serial name: Enter the text that you would like to appear in the Heading AFTER the Serial name. If you don't want to show any text after the Serial name, just blank out the field before saving your settings.

List <ul> class: To allow even greater control over the styling of the unordered list, you may specify a class name for the list's <ul> tag. The default is serial-links. Note that the plugin replaces any whitespace with hyphens.

Reset all options to the Default settings: Check this box if you want to rest all the options to their default settings.

That's it! The Settings Page is now configured.
