  4. Overview


What is this?

Organize Series Shortcodes provides a set of WordPress “shortcodes” that provide users a way to easily insert various series information into their posts (or pages!).  (You can learn more about WordPress shortcodes here at the WordPress Codex).  To make it EVEN easier, this addon provides buttons for both the advanced mce editor on your “add/edit posts/pages” screen AND buttons for the HTML editor.  So, you don’t even need to remember what the shortcodes are!

Can you provide more info on that?

Sure can!  Here we go…with the initial release there are five shortcodes available:

1. Add Organize Series “Series Post List Box”

shortcode: [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”

shortcode: [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).

3. Add Organize Series Table of Contents


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

shortcode: [series_meta] [/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

shortcode: [series_nav][/series_nav]

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.

I don’t see something I’m looking for? Will you be adding any more shortcodes?

Actually there are plans to implement shortcodes for all other Organize Series addons (where suitable).
