Organize Series
Bulk edit of posts doesn't show series list (3 posts)

    Hello,

    I have a LOT of posts that I'm trying to migrate from standard posts to using the 'Manage Series' plugin (which is brilliant btw) - my only issue is that the 'bulk edit' of posts in the post lists doesn't seem to show the list of series.

    Is there any way to bulk edit posts with the Manage Series plugin? I literally have thousands of posts that I am having to go through and manually add them to the various series that I have created - would save me tons of time if the bulk edit functionality worked.

    Thanx in advance,
    Mike W

    hey there! I replied to your comment on OrganizeSeries.com but I'll reply here as well.

    Bulk-edit is something that I've considered creating an addon for and it is in the development queue but is not a high priority. Part of the difficulty of adding this feature is thinking through how series parts will be determined. My initial thoughts would be to just order them by post-date when bulk-edit is used. It becomes really complicated if we implement some sort of part chooser in the process.

    Hey, I posted this here before I stumbled upon your main site. Thanks for responding (in both places!) - Not a big deal, just a bit of a PITA to go through the posts manually, but the content needed a bit of a reorg anyways ;}

    You might want to take a look a the 'BatchCategory' plugin for some ideas / inspiration for ways to tackle this (if you end up wanting to). I've been using that plugin to help me along the way (to at least organize things into categories, which I can then turn into series easily).

    Cheers!
    Mike W
