Support » Plugin: Organize Series » Best Plugin Ever

  • I’ve upgraded my original review from 4 stars to 5, because the author gave me a fix for the only problem I had with it, and because the more I use it, the more I have come to appreciate it.

    WHAT MAKES THIS PLUGIN SO SPECIAL is that it provides a way to reach into a jumble of posts on a given topic and organize them into a decent sequence. So anyone who finds one of the posts sees the collection it belongs to, and can investigate the others, in the intended sequence of reading.

    In a word, it is a beautiful addition to the WordPress capabilities.

    –Original Review–
    The good:

    • Really easy to set up. Go to the series settings, and define a series. Boom.
    • Then visit a post. The sidebar has a new set of options that let you assign the post to a series, give it a number, and give it a shorter name, if you need for when it appears in a sidebar widget.
    • The series TOC page displays the standard teasers for all of the posts in the series
    • The TOC page for a series has a nice URL, so it’s easy to add to a menu.

    In short, it was mega-easy to set up and use, so I’m sending the author a few bucks by way of thanks.

    The bad news:
    Depending on your theme, the series TOC-page that displays the teasers may not have any heading.

    The better news:
    The author provided a fix in wicked-fast time, so future users may never see the problem.

    I want to give the plugin 6 stars. Because it turns out that when you insert or remove an item from a series, everything else in the series is automatically renumbered. That functionality is as wonderful as it was unexpected!
