Organize Series 2.1.7 Released

I knew I wanted to get the next version of Organize Series out the door and with the surprise (well maybe not quite a surprise) release of WordPress 2.9 I decided to get my butt in gear and finish off the threads needed.  As far as I know Organize Series works fine with WordPress 2.9 (I’m running it fine on my websites) but if you notice any problems report them to the support forums as usual.

This release is mostly bug fixes.  Please make sure you read through the changelog if you want all the details.  Some of you will be happy with some persistent bugs you’ve been dealing with (I hope!).

What’s next?  Well, I have had a number of different feature requests that have come my way.  Some I may be doing as custom work in the new year (that means getting paid to implement) and others I have quoted on but I think it’s outside of the budget of those wanting them.  I’m strongly considering doing some work on some plugins to Organize Series that will implement some of the most requested features and offer it up for sale on a service like the wpplugins app store for a nominal amount (between $10-20).   Anything I do this way will still be release GPL etc. but it will be a way for me to still contribute new features to Organize Series and help pay my bills as well.   The core Organize Series plugin of course will still always be offered free of charge and I will continue to do maintenance and bug fixes on it going forward.  All I would be doing is offering new features as a paid option.

Why am I posting this?  I want some feedback, what do you think?  Would you pay $10-20 for a plugin that would extend the features of Organize Series?  Let me know in the comments!

  1. I am a new Seires user and just now getting familiar with it. Glad to see a guy in ministry working on stuff like this. I would be willing to pay for it if it would really extend the features. I don't know what you have in mind. I think I will get a lot of use out this plug-in in the future. Great job.

  2. Cool. Thanks for posting Greg! I'm looking at implementing some features to allow for multiple authors (and corresponding edit privileges, series listed by author etc.). Another feature that may be included in the paid plugin for Organize Series is to use shortcodes to place a Series Table of contents anywhere in a post rather than just restricted to the before or after content.

    BTW, Nice blog you have!
