Organize Series 2.3 released (and an add-on sneak preview)
Hey folks. I've been hard at work improving Organize Series. With this next release I've knocked away some more bugs and have done some structural tweaking for future add ons. Another (maybe minor) thing with this release is that the "series_part" custom field on the create/edit post page is now hidden. I know, I know, most of you are going, "huh? so what?". It's just one of those niggling things that makes for a cleaner create/edit post page. See the comparison below:
The series_part custom field is still in the database (and is still the way Organize Series keeps track of series parts)...it's just hidden. It helps make things cleaner because now there won't be duplication between the Series Part field in the Series Meta Box and the custom field input.
You can read up about all the changes in this release by heading on over here.
Now for a little bit of a tidbit for those of you who read this through right to the end. If all goes well, in a couple of days I hope to release a BRAND NEW Organize Series Add on. This is one that has been requested by a number of folks but I've never really had the desire to implement it early because of the work I knew was involved. Well thanks to an individual (I'll tell you who when it's released) who just had to have this feature and was willing to contribute some moola towards its development this much requested feature is coming to Organize Series as an add on. Incidentally, this is one of the reasons for the new version of Organize Series because I had to restructure the core to allow for the features coming.
I know what you're thinking, "Just cut to the chase. What is it?". It's magical (I just couldn't resist...sorry). Well, hmm.. I don't really want to tell you, yet. But I will show you this teaser screenshot - oh, and the code word is "multiple". See if you can guess!
