  1. Upload the whole plugin folder to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder. It will give you two plug-ins: Hackadelic Series Admin and Hackadelic Series Front-End. (The reason why these are separate plug-ins is described in the plug-in announcement.)
  2. Go to the Plugins page and activate one or both of the plug-ins.

Hackadelic Series Front-End uses Sliding Notes to provide an ajax-style expandable series index. It therefor requires Sliding Notes to be installed (otherwise you’ll see the raw shortcodes only).


How do I use the plug-in?

Easy: Add a custom field named “series” to your posts, and set it’s value to the series title. To rename a series accross posts, use the series admin interface.

Fixes a silly bug in the front-end, due to which unpublished posts had appeared in the series post list. Now unpublished posts are hidden from normal users, and shown in italic to users with edit privilege.

The back-end, of course, always shows every entry in a series. I changed the formatting to match the above semantics.


Many improvements in admin area. In particular, the potentially unsafe meta-key renaming operation has been revised.
