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.
Since I first tried this plugin I fell in love with it. It's simple, it's pretty, and it works great for organizing one or more series of posts. It's perfect for a serial writing site (as well as anything else that might need serializing!).
The principle behind this plugin is great. Unfortunately, it's let down by some terrible usability.
1: Moving items around within a series seems to be a hit and miss affair. If you try to move a part into a position already occupied by a part, sometimes it works, and the other part[s] shuffle up to make room. sometime the part yo moved gets assigned a number at the end of the stack. It seems completely random.
2: By far the biggest shocker though is that, when you choose the "Quick Edit" button next to a post, the existing series info isn't loaded into the editing form, so you either have to re-enter it each time, or your series info is wiped out when you save your edits.
I want to like this plugin. In theory it's the best way of organising a series of posts into something like a book. However, the clunky usability and the fact that, having spent ages configuring a series, you are liable to have it all come crashing down like a house of cards if you have the temerity to "quick Edit" any of the posts in that series makes it completely unusable for me.
Perfect for organizing posts on WordPress.
Having the ability to organize series of posts makes WordPress usable as a real content management system. I have a site (ed-informatics.org) that has a series of sequential tutorials, and I use Organize Series to put them in their places and provide easy access for visitors.
I have a gaming website with lots of walkthroughs and this plugin is perfect for organising them, thanks!
