Simple Post Series with SEO!

An easy to use shortcode for automatically creating and organizing a series list for multiple posts on the same topic with appropriate SEO attributes.

How does "Simple Post Series with SEO!" work?

Easy! Just add the shortcode to each of the posts you want to put in the series. Inside the shortcode you will need to specify the title for the series. Like so:
[simple_series title="This Is My Series Title"]

What if I add more posts later?

No problem! The "Simple Post Series with SEO!" plugin will always update the series lists in each of your posts whenever you publish a new post. The newest post will always be added to the series in chronological order, by publication date. You can see an example of what it looks like here in my own DrawBot series.

What if I add one post to multiple series?

No problem! Just include a comma between the series titles in the shortcode. It will add your post to each series named and it will display each associatd series list.

  • Example of just a post in only one series `[simple_series title="This Is My Series Title"]`
  • Example of just a post in two series `[simple_series title="This Is My Series Title,This Is A Totally Different Series Title!"]`

It's a piece of crap! It doesn't work!

Calm down - everything will be okay. If you've activated the plugin, added the shortcode with a title, and updated/published your post, and you don't see the series list, try to refresh the page in your browser or clear the page cache.

Hey! This formatting sucks! Can I add my own CSS?

Sure! There are three components to the series list: the DIV wrapper, the title of the series inside SPAN tags, and the list items. This is the exact formatting I use in my blog. If you need something different, just fiddle with the CSS to suit and add them to your stylesheet.
div.mbk_simple_series_wrapper { display:block; }
span.mbk_simple_series_title { font-weight:bold; display:block;}
div.mbk_simple_series_wrapper ol li.mbk_simple_series_list_item, a.mbk_simple_series_link_prev, a.mbk_simple_series_link_next { font-size:smaller; line-height: 0.8em;}
a.mbk_simple_series_list_current_item { font-weight:bold;}
a.mbk_simple_series_link_prev { float:left; }
a.mbk_simple_series_link_next { float:right; }

Wait! I have more questions!
