I just wanted to post a quick update for all of you who use my Organize Series plugin for WordPress now that WordPress 3.0 is out.
The big question of course is “Does Organize Series work with WordPress 3.0?”. The answer is it should but I haven’t tested it completely and have not upgraded my own blogs yet. I haven’t heard of any issues arising from any users yet so I’m assuming that things are okay. As always though, make sure you back up your blog before upgrading if you are a user of Organize Series.
The other reason for this quick update is to let you folks know that I’m in the midst of a pretty major rewrite of Organize Series. Here’s some highlights:
- WordPress 3.0 brought in some much needed love to the custom taxonomies api which makes a lot of the coding I did for Organize Series obsolete and redundant. This rewrite will make OrgSeries leaner, faster and even more future proof against future WordPress updates.
- I’m also going to add some goodies in to this next release thanks to some fine users in the Organize Series community who have mailed me some custom work they built around the plugin for me to include. So there will be new features with this release.

I’ve just pushed Organize Series 2.1.2 to WordPress/extend/plugins. This release of the plugin fixes series feeds that weren’t working and also (hopefully) fixes the problems with the_excerpt().
Fixed a bug reported here. This was a pretty major bug affecting scheduled posts that are a part of a series, let me know if you have any problems with it!
Download Organize Series 2.0.8 development version
UPDATE (12/6/08): Just a heads up that the link above downloads from the trunk of the Organize Series subversion repository so you will get the bleeding edge version of Organize Series (currently at 2.0.8beta4). I’m not going to be responding to bugs listed here as frequently (unless I can reproduce easily…so make sure your report is as thorough as possible) because I’m ramping up to get a release ready for when WordPress 2.7 is released this week. OrgSeries 2.0.8beta4 currently WORKS with WordPress 2.7 RC1
Thanks to a commenter I was notified to an incorrect hyper-link to the Organize Series WordPress Plugin help/docs page on the Series options panel in the WordPress Administration (there’s a mouthful).?? It’s now fixed with this release.
