    I just upgraded to the new version 2.2. Thanks for all your great work!

    Is it my imagination or was it possible in previous versions to have the table of contents URL and the custom base be the same? I thought I had it set that way before but it won't work that way now.

    For example, I'd like to have my table of contents at http://domain.com/series/ and then each series be something like http://domain.com/series/series-name/, etc. Is there a way to make it work like that?

    I used the built-in WordPress api for custom taxonomies more throughly in the latest version which means the way the permalinks work is a bit different then what I had setup. Some users are finding that they can have both the same, but some users are finding they can't. I'm still trying to work out why this is happening.

    For example, on one of my own blogs, if I have "series" in the title of any posts then I can't use series as the custom-base for the series-toc because it will just get redirected to a post with "series" in the title (post titles take precedence over other redirects) (or I can change the slug of the posts with series in them).

    I've filed this as a ticket because it's bugging me but it's not a high priority ticket as a simple name change for the series toc (using something other than series) works.

    Also, don't forget that Organize Series no longer uses series.php for the series archive pages. It now uses the new format provided by WordPress, so use taxonomy-series.php instead. You can copy the contents of any existing series.php into taxonomy-series.php and it should work fine.
