WP Post Series

Description

WP Post Series is a lightweight plugin for making a series of posts and showing information about the series on the post page.

Posts in a series will automatically show a series box (prepended before the post content), or you can insert them manually using the Post Series Block.

Features

  • Add post series using the familiar WordPress UI and give each one a description.
  • Assign post series to your posts.
  • Filter posts in the backend by series.
  • Show the series above the post content or using the Post Series Block in the editor.
  • Developer friendly code — Custom taxonomies & template files.

Support

Use the WordPress.org forums for community support – I cannot offer support directly for free. If you spot a bug, you can of course log it on Github instead where I can act upon it more efficiently.

If you want help with a customisation, hire a developer!

Installation

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t even need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install, log in to your WordPress admin panel, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “WP Post Series” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by clicking Install Now.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application.

  • Download the plugin file to your computer and unzip it
  • Using an FTP program, or your hosting control panel, upload the unzipped plugin folder to your WordPress wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  • Activate the plugin from the Plugins menu within the WordPress admin.
