OS Extra Tokens FAQ
What is this?
Organize Series Extra Tokens adds new %tokens% to the Organize Series Options page for customizing the various series templates there.
Umm…so of what use is that?
There are five new tokens in the initial release (more will be added as requests come in)
- %series_slug% - which will output the slug of the series.
- %series_id% - which will output the id of the series.
- %post_author% - will output the author of the post.
- %post_thumbnail% - if the post has a feature-image then that image will be displayed.
- %post_date% - the date that a post was published
This gives the user of Organize Series many new options for further customization of various displays of series information. For example, if you wanted to show the feature images of each post in a series post list you could use the %post_thumbnail% token to include it.
Is it hard to use?
Nope, if you are used to controlling the display of series information using the series options page then the new tokens will be easy as pie to use. If however, you are just starting out you may want to read the Organize Series Options page documentation (requires the Basic Support subscription to access) to learn all you need to know.
I’ve been waiting for something like this for a while but I’m not sure I’ll be able to figure out how to use it on my own…what can I do?
