Easy Post Series

Description

This plugin helps you create a series of posts. It creates a new taxonomy named ‘series’ (can be modified via filter, see FAQ). There is no setting needed for this plugin. Once it is installed, assign posts you want to group as a series via post editor.

The plugin also creates a posts navigation on posts that belong to a certain series. See screenshots for the examples.

Reviews

The best post series plugin. Period.

Why is this the BEST post series plugin? It is extremely well developed, takes 0 effort to use, primo results, minimal space usage on both sides.

1). Nothing to set up, copy/paste, or do.
2). Series interface is minimal on the post edit page.
Just a box that works exactly like Tags – you do not choose from a list of series. If you have a lot of series this is critical – a deal maker or breaker. I have tons of series – sets of activities based on one reading passage for example. It is important to have them grouped together but it was difficult, I was about to just do it manually, until this plugin.
3). Great looking, compact but complete results: with all posts in series linked in a collapsing box. So you don’t use up post space with series info = but it is all available. Brilliant!

This plugin is a life saver for me. Seriously.

Please donate to keep this (or any 5 star) plugin you use maintained!

Thank you for your work. It is a pleasure to use this plugin. It is very important to one of my sites.

Fantastic!

I don’t usually leave reviews, but after my experience with other Series plugins, I felt that I should share.

This one just worked. It provides a clean, collapsible list of my post Series at the start of the post. There’s a link that opens up a blog page containing all the posts in the Series.

The only thing I wish it had was the ability to add a next in series/previous in series navigation link at the bottom of the post. Otherwise, it’s perfect.

Very good!

Works beautifully and doesn’t have a sucking frontend design, as other similar plugins do!

Exactly what I needed

Works perfectly out of the box. When I asked the author about a particular function, it did not exist but he added it in a new version in a matter of days. Amazing support.
