Good idea but very unfriendly for beginner
By ,

This would be great if I could even get started. But there is not one single bit of useful information explaining how to do this. No manual, no 'quickstart', nothing. The user is expected to know intuitively how it works - which is fine if it's an intuitive plugin, but it's not. Added to which, the writer says things like 'Save a file called {blah blah}.php and give it such-and-such a filename' - like, how 'bout 'no'? That's far too techy for a beginner.

That said, none of the other series editing plugins are friendly either. This plugin is at heart a great idea and supposedly has lots of features - but it's impossible for a beginner to get to grips with. There is no point in issuing a free plugin with no getting started guide; people (like me) will just walk away. There isn't even a 'sticky' thread in the support forum entitled 'getting started'.

Walking away from this right now. All it needed was a simple 'getting started' guide for beginners. Not all of us - even computer literate people - can handle this 'simple' program without some basic instructions.

Good idea but poor coding

Too much error, conflict with other plugin, bad css. Uninstalled.

Easily customized, perfect for offering free courses
By , for WP 4.0.1

I plan to offer free courses, with no sign up - almost impossible to find plugins. I have been searching and trying education course plugins for weeks. I have even installed and wrestled with an ed software generated sub-site. I realized all I need is a post series plugin (and quiz plugin shortcodes). That was disappointing too. Until I found this one.

This one is perfect for courses. It has 2 widgets, TOC, post nav, series index box on each post, and id posts as part of a series. These are all I need. And I need all of them.

Easy to assign posts to a series, and to order them.

CSS is crazy simple to customize. I did so for the first time in my 2 yr. WP experience. And CSS is totally customizable in settings. Awesome.

The plugin does not add awkward looking elements. They integrate well, look great and are logically placed.

Thank you for a maintained, highly useful, plugin. I have a MultiSite sub-site dedicated to its use.

...for writers.

A good plugin, could do with some more 'advanced' features to get 5 stars.

When series is long then the index widget is stupidly long, perhaps an ajax pagination of some sort would fix this?

Good work though. Thanks

Really good and easy to set up

Really good plugin.
Many ++
One - no free solid documentation, you have to pay for that. Fair enough I guess.

I have used Organize Series for quite a while now and it's only improved with age. It's flexible, powerful, well-documented, and supported. I haven't seen a better plug-in for writing serial fiction.

Perfect for a post of series
By , for WP 3.7.1

I have written some workshops where the order of the posts is important and where it's good to know which posts belong together.
"organize series" solves this task very good.
Series can be created and each article can be assigned to one series including the position of the post in this serie.

Unfortunately does this plugin do not work with "bulk edit". So if you already have a lot of posts belonging to one series you will have to adapt the articles one by one. But this is okay beacuse you will have to define the position of the article within the series.

Thanks for this very helpful plugin!!!

Este é um excelente plugin, perfeito para organizar seus posts em séries. Com a atualização para o WordPress 3.7, ele parou de funcionar, mas o update para a versão atual deixou tudo funcionando novamente. Eu o traduzi para pt_BR via GlotPress.

Great plugin, but watch out on resources
By ,

I really like this plugin, and use it to organize the series on my website. However, I have to say, you should know ahead of time that it is resource-intensive. Currently, it's responsible for 33% of the load time for my website... and is only one plugin out of 35--and this is the case even when loading pages where there's not post that's part of a series!

I'm not sure why this is the case, and it doesn't make the plugin less useful, but it is something you will want to know about going in.
