Features

Assign your content to a series right in the editor.

You can easily add a post to an existing series and indicate what part you want it to be (or leave the part field blank to have the plugin automatically append the post to the end of the series). The cool thing about the way series parts work is if you want to insert a new post as part two in a three part series you can do that and the plugin will take care of renumbering the other posts in that series. Another feature with this box is you can add a new series on the fly while creating a new post

Integration with the Posts List Table

Now it’s easier than ever to keep track of what posts have been added to series in a familiar setting. Even better, you can also filter the post list by series giving you a quick way to see all the posts you’ve already added to the series. Organize Series also fully integrates with the quick-edit feature of WordPress list tables!

Since I first tried this plugin I fell in love with it. It’s simple, it’s pretty, and it works great for organizing one or more series of posts. It’s perfect for a serial writing site (as well as anything else that might need serializing!).

Automatic Display of Series Information

Right out of the box, after activating the plugin and assigning posts to series the series meta box will be automatically added to posts that are a part of a series. Of course you can modify how this meta box appears using the template for it in the Series Options Page.

Easy Management of Series

Add, delete, edit all your series on one handy dandy page. You can also upload/select images to associate with the series. Organize Series makes it easy to keep track of all the series you are writing!

Additional Features in the Core Plugin

Series images

You can easily upload and choose images to use as series “icons” for your series via the built-in WordPress Media-Uploader.

Extensive Options

A dedicating settings page gives you the ability to customize the output of nearly every built-in feature for how your series are displayed on the front-end. If you know a little html and .css you can control the output without ever having to go into any of the WordPress theme files.

Dashboard Info

The little things matter. You can see series information right in the dashboard all linked to the series management page.

Series Meta

Right out of the box, after activating the plugin and assigning posts to series the series meta box will be automatically added to posts that are a part of a series. Of course you can modify how this meta box appears using the template for it in the Series Options Page.

Series Navigation

Another feature that will work right out of the box is the handy Series Navigation strip. No more having to manually add a way for people to navigate to other posts in the series. The navigation strip will automatically populate through all posts in a series and update when you add more posts to a series. It too can be customized further on the series options page.

Embedded TOC

Yet another feature that works out of the box is the “post list box”. It will output a list of all the posts in a series and serves as a table of contents when a reader is viewing a particular post in the series. It too, can be customized via the series options page.

Series Table of Contents

Organize Series provides a template for a page that lists all the series on your site. It’s a great way to provide an overview for your readers of the different series they can read through.

Archive

Organize Series also makes available a series archive page provided whenever a reader clicks a series title. The archive page can be customized as well so you can control what gets displayed on it. You are also able to control how the posts are listed on the archive page and in what order (eg by date, or part number).

Widgets

There is a default series widget that can be set to display series in a dropdown or a list format. The second widget included is for displaying “latest series”. Both widgets have numerous options for adjusting what is displayed.
