I’m excited to announce the newest addition to the Organize Series addons family, Organize Series Shortcodes! This new add-on gives you the ability to easily add series information where you want within a post (or page!) using the built-in shortcodes system provided by WordPress. We’ve provided multiple ways for you to insert shortcodes:
- You can do it using the [shortcode] syntax.
- You can use the handy buttons provided via the “Visual” tab (the easiest way).
- You can use the buttons provided via the HTML tab (if you prefer going html when composing posts).
Here’s a short overview of all the shortcodes provided with the initial release:
1. Add Organize Series “Series Post List Box”
info: This shortcode enables you to insert a table of contents for a series wherever you want in a post (or a page!). It is “smart” – which means if you use this shortcode (without any parameters) within a post that is part of a series, it will automatically output the series post list box for that post.
2. Add Organize Series “Post List Box”
info: Returns a list of posts within an indicated series (or the list of posts for the series this post belongs to).

info: This is probably one of the most powerful shortcodes because of all the options you have. This shortcode is used to output the table of contents for the series you have written. What’s cool about this is the amount of control over the series that are displayed. Of course, this makes it easier than ever to setup a page on your site listing all the series you’ve written!
4. Organize Series Meta
info: This outputs the series meta strip (default is series title, part number, number of posts in series), however you can also customize the output of this shortcode using the same %tokens% you used on the series options page!
5. Organize Series Navigation Strip
info: This outputs the series navigation strip used to smartly navigate through the various posts in a series. Like the series meta shortcode, you can also customize the output here with the same %tokens% found in the series options page.
So there you have it! 5 AWESOME shortcodes right out of the gate. Those who purchase this addon will gain access to even more detailed usage docs to give you all you need for unleashing the power of Organize Series Shortcodes.
NOTE: Just a heads up that I’m travelling until May 10th, 2011, and my internet access during this period of time is intermittent. I will respond to any inquiries as soon as I can but my regular promptness won’t be in place until I return.
