Organize Series
[resolved] Quick Edit breaks plugin (9 posts)

    I've just spent a happy hour having to manually re-enter all the info for two series [each of about 20 sections each, after I belatedly realised that making any changes to a post via the Quick Edit button completely wipes out all series info for that post.

    Brilliant!

    That's definitely not intended behaviour and unfortunately I cannot reproduce. There is likely a conflict with another plugin on your WordPress install and may not be the fault of Organize Series

    Just letting you know I am having the same issue. Quick Edit completely wipes out my series data :((

    Thanks for chiming in! Again, I can't replicate this issue. Since I have no idea what the commonalities may be when it comes to theme in use and plugins in use I have no way of setting up an environment that will replicate this issue for the two of you who have reported it.

    Weird! –I posted another reply a couple of weeks ago, listing the [few] plugins I had installed. It seems to have disappeared.

    Anyway, I've just disabled ALL my other plugins, reverted to the default '2012' theme and tried quick editing a post that was part of a series and Organise Series lost the series info again. So I think we can safely say that this is not a case of "user error". The plugin is definitely broken –at least for some users.

    Here's what I'm seeing:

    1: Select a post that is part of a series and hit 'Quick Edit':

    2: The problem seems to stem from the fact that the Quick Edit form does not populate with the series info in the 'Series' popup menu on the left, although it is correctly listed as part of a series in the 'Series' textarea on the right :

    3: If changes are made [In this case I changed the title of the article] and saved, post will have been removed from series:

    In addition, trying to 're-insert' the post back into the series via the Quick Edit form is also broken. I added it back in at its original position as part 17 of 20. however it was added at position 20 and the original posts 18-20 renumbered downwards to fill the gap. I was only able to re-insert the post in its proper place and fix the other posts through using the full edit screen.

    BTW –just on the off-chance that the root of the problem lies in some *really* obscure quarter, I'm running a multisite installation of WordPress and serving with Nginx.

    So glad you made that last post, that "off-chance" is the exact cause of the problem. Organize Series is not compatible with multisite right now. There are plans to build in compatibility.

    Ah. OK. Thanks for the info. I look forward to the multisite compatible version.

    You might want to add a note to the effect that it's currently not completely compatible with multisite to the plugin description. It would have saved me a lot of headaches to know that in advance.

    Point well taken. In the next update I'll see that a note gets added to the plugin about multi-site compatibility.
