Organize Series 2.1.1 released – Major Bug Fix

A pretty major bug slipped through with the release of Organize Series 2.1.  What happens with the bug is when someone posts a comment to a post that is part of a series, that post will lose it’s series information.  Not good.  Organize Series 2.1.1 should fix that.  You’ll want to upgrade as soon as possible.

Organize Series 2.0.8 released

It’s time to get out of beta and get this version onto WordPress.org/extend/plugins so more users can enjoy all the goodies.  Once again, a big thanks to all the people who have helped test and fix the bugs that first got introduced way back when WordPress 2.6 was released.  There’s so many of you I’ve lost track – but they are in the feed 😉

Here’s a list of fixes/features with this new version:

New features

  • Added a new argument to the “wplistseries” function – “number” which enables users to limit the number of series displayed
  • Reworked the layout of Organize Series administration integration with WordPress so it “fits” with WordPress 2.7 – including showing “Series” in the Dashboard “Right Now” widget.
  • Organize Series interface can be floated around and respositioned in the write/edit posts screen for WordPress 2.7
  • moved the “Manage Series” menu item to the Posts submenu area for WP2.7 (previous versions stay in the same location)

Minor

  • fixed an inconsistency with ‘showlastupdate’
  • fixed some bugs with the atom feed (was an early update…not sure if it’s still working correctly now)
  • fixed the ‘series_description’ function (it wasn’t working)

Major

  • Organize Series will now work correctly with the post-revisions feature introduced with WordPress 2.6
  • redid the plugin file locater code to allow for changes with the admin menu filters.
  • redid the plugin file locater code to allow for users customizing the location of their wp-content folder
  • redid all code referencing wp-config.php to allow for users customizing the location of their wp-config.php file (see http://planetozh.com/blog/2008/07/what-plugin-coders-must-know-about-wordpress-26/ for reference I used).
  • Fixed posts that are a part of series but not published showing up in the series list on published posts that are part of a series-taxonomy
  • Fixed a bug where custom navigation text set on the Series options page wasn’t showing up correctly.

What’s on the horizon?

Something I had hoped to do with Organize Series with this release was to localize it so it can be translated into different languages.  Some of the framework is there but I still have quite a bit of work to go before I’m ready to give it to translators to begin working on it.  If you are a user of Organize Series and are interested in translating it into another language leave a comment with this post (even if you’ve offered to help before) and that will give me a list of people to contact once it’s ready to be translated!  Be aware that I don’t have a timetable for this yet though as I’ve got a busy couple of months ahead of me…

Organize Series Beta 2

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
