And We’re LIVE!!

Wow!  This has been such a long time in the works that I have just an INCREDIBLE satisfaction in writing this post.  OrganizeSeries.com is now open to the world and ready to start into an awesome journey of world domination…. well, not quite.

What is Organize Series” you ask?  It is a plugin that makes it SUPER SIMPLE to write posts/articles connected in series on your WordPress based website.  With 0 downloads, it is the most used Series plugin in the wild.   OrganizeSeries.com has been created as the new home for anything Organize Series related and especially for the new eco-system of addons that can be used with Organize Series to extend it’s feature set even more!!

Does this mean you’re not hosting Organize Series on WordPress Extend anymore?”  Not at all!  In fact, I linked to the page to prove it.  The core Organize Series plugin will alway be offered for free to the WordPress community and will be kept up to date with new WordPress versions.  I’m just hoping that there will be enough of you supporting us through the purchase of the support package, and addons to help with the development costs for this plugin.

We’re still not completely done everything here but I’ve had so many requests for the updated core plugin that I decided to push what I could out.  You’ll see that the Download page is pretty bare and doesn’t have many addons available yet.  Rest assured that it won’t be that way for long.  I’ve already got three more addons waiting in the wings.  They just need to be polished up and recieve some more testing before they are ready to go.

Take a look around the site, read about the changes and keep writing those series!!

I have been using your Organize Series for a long time. I think it is one of the greatest plugin for WordPress. I am happy that you keep working on that to make it even better. Looking forward to seeing new features added.

Congratulations, Darren! I hope the freemium model works out. Thought OS has had its quirks, overall it’s been an invaluable plugin, and with WordPress poised to become the dominant CMS on the Anglophone web, it’s hard to believe there won’t be a huge demand for easy series creation and organization.

Unfortunately your latest update doesn’t cure a couple of those quirks, which I hesitate to mention because I don’t imagine they’ll be easy to fix, but basically viewing any series messes up the standard Recent Posts widget as well as the display of posts from both of the two most popular sideblog widgets, Alkivia SidePosts and Kates Gasis’ Sideblog plugin, in each case grabbing seemingly random posts from a couple years back.

Past 2 years I am using your series plugin. For my tech blog http://timewasteblog.com your series plugin working like heart :). Now I removed all categories and using “series” only. Series navigation option and index option is really helping bounce rate of my site.

Thanks

Thanks Rav for your kind comments here! I’m glad to hear about how Organize Series is working for you. I’ve noticed it helps with visitor retention on my web properties as well.
