Organize Series
Scheduled or Draft Posts Influence Number Sequence (3 posts)

    Love the plugin, but when I schedule or draft a post to be a part of a series, it influences the number sequence on the front-facing site. So if I was scheduling a post to become post #3, the fifth article would read: Post 6 of 5. The only option, it seems is to set the series components after publication - or simultaneously with publication -- however there are many instances where scheduling a post is desirable. Any ideas how to resolve?

    Hey there, saw your tweet and responded but your post here clarifies the problem you're having.

    This is a known issue and happens when scheduling a post or writing a draft that you decide to insert somewhere in the middle of an existing series.

    Unfortunately there is no workaround at the moment for this (other than just changing the series part when it get's published).

    In MOST use cases the series_part numbering works well but in a few cases (such as yours) flaws are exposed. I'm hoping to revamp this at some point but my time to do so has been limited lately.

    Sorry that this is the best answer I can give you for now :(

    Thanks for the response -- all in all the plugin works so well that it's just a minor inconvenience. But if you decide to fix it with an addon, I'd happily pay for it as well. Thanks for your great work!
