Organize Series 2.1.5 has galloped in…

I just finished getting the next version of my super duper series plugin for WordPress launched to the wild.  Organize Series 2.1.5 has got some neat stuff in it:

  • New Feature: A bundled plugin called “Organize Series Publisher”.  You don’t have to activate it if you don’t want but it’s there if you want to try it out!  This new add-on for Organize Series is a take-off of the Issues-Manager plugin created by Jonathan Brinley and was sponsored by Amanda Giles who hired me to port Issues-Manager so it works with Organize Series.  Amanda graciously agreed to have this released to all users of Organize Series!  Basically, this add-on allows you to set a series so any posts assigned to it won’t publish until you explicitly publish the whole series.  Read more about it on the Organize Series Plugin Page
  • New Feature: custom base for series permalinks.  Yeah, now you can change ‘series’ to something like ‘myawesomesequenceofposts’…well, you can..
  • New Feature: Added a new function for you power users who want to be able to fully control the output of series data.  get_series_ordered() has joined the party and you can thank Amanda for it too!  With this function you can get series data from the database and manipulate it however you want when it’s returned.  Do the tango with it if you want! Uh…yeah…

Organize Series 2.0.4 released

For those not familiar with what the Organize Series WordPress plugin is or does – please visit this page.

This is a pretty significant changeset that fixes some things with the Series Table of Contents page:

  • Series Table of Contents page now returns the correct header (’200′). It was returning ’400′ before the fix. see this thread.
  • NEW FEATURE: You can now indicate what the browser title bar will say on Series Table of Contents page via the Series Option settings in your admin. The default will be “Series Table of Contents Page”
  • Fixed a conflict with “All In One SEO Pack” plugin affecting Series Table of Contents Page.
  • Thanks to gnouros for detecting and testing my fixes of the above errors for me!
  • Shortened the “official” plugin name to “Organize Series” to match the directory in the svn repository – hopefully this will fix the indicator not showing up in your plugin list for when there’s a new version of Organize Series out. See this post in the WP Support Forums.

Current Version of Organize Series: 2.0.3

Just thought I’d post a quick update that the current stable version of Organize Series is 2.0.3. Here’s a summarized change set since orgSeries 2.0:

  • 2.0.1 – some fixes so that changing the SERIES_URL definition in orgSeries.php actually works (you can use this to pick how you want the series-archive permalinks to look – important for avoiding conflicts with existing category permalinks…)
  • 2.0.2 – fixed Organize Series causing problems with other plugins that create their own top-level menus in your WordPress Administration. Previous to this fix you’d get ’404′ errors on subpages of those plugin menus.
  • 2.0.3 – I noticed that orgSeries 2.0.2 broke the “add series on the fly” feature on write/edit post pages (and also affected the layout of those pages). This release fixes that.

I thought I had nailed all the bugs before releasing Organize Series 2.0 – but of course, as it usually is, once code get’s in the wild all sorts of nasty creatures pop up ;)

If you haven’t yet – I encourage you to download Organize Series 2.0.3.
