EG-Series
LInk to Series Page from Post Page (3 posts)

    After I moved to latest version of EG-Series, I discovered that the plugin removed the "series" custom tag from the posts. I had modified my single.php page to display a link to the Series Page to which the post belonged as breadcrumb. This doesn't work now.

    • How can I display the Link to the corresponding Series Page from Post Page?
    • Also, I am not sure if its due to the plugin or wordpress 3.3.1 upgrade, but suddenly the Page permalinks on my website have stopped working (post permalinks work fine though). The page slugs are correct, but (most of) the permalinks now through a 404 error. All these pages used to be my Series Pages earlier. Strangely other pages like http://www.nirantar.org/book-bazar/ and http://www.nirantar.org/issues/ works fine too. I don't want the series page to be like http://www.nirantar.org/series/1006 but rather should point to my own custom page http://www.nirantar.org/1006/. How can I achieve this?

    Hi

    - How Can I display the link ...?
    You can find everything you need for you theme, in the file eg-series-template-tags.inc.php (in the root directoty of the plugin)

    - Page permalinks stopped working
    I don't think the issue is coming from the plugin.
    To solve the issue,
    . You can go to Settings/, and then just push button 'save changes'
    . I had the same issue with posts, a long time ago (before I developped the plugin), and I had to delete permalinks of faulty page, in order to let WordPress rebuild them

    - I don't want the series page to be like http://www.nirantar.org/series/1006 but rather should point to my own custom page http://www.nirantar.org/1006/. How can I achieve this?
    . The permalink with .../series/... is the normal behavior when we use taxonomy
    . I will check if we can remove it.

    Thanks for a quick reply Emmanuel.

    I was able to put the link to the series page in bread-crumbs using a WordPress template method (it took me a while to realize the taxonomy name you used "series")
    <?php the_terms( $post->ID, 'series', '', '', '' ); ?>

    About the broken page permalinks I agree its not due to your plugin. There is a problem with WordPress that it doesn't allow numeric slugs with Pages (see http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/14238). Earlier I had fixed it by commenting the problematic lines in wp-includes/post.php but I guess that was overwritten due to WP upgrades.

    But still a feature request would be to allow users to create their own series pages and link from EG-Series (this feature was there in 1.x) instead of the taxonomy archives page. I use EG-Series for a webzine which has the series page as the "Index" or the issue cover Page and as such must be visible to the user either from the Bread-crumb or the Issues index page.
