Patience pays off – for those of you waiting for a version of Organize Series that will work with the latest version of WordPress (currently WP 2.6.2)! I just want to give a shout out to all the people who have been trying to hack up fixes in the interim instead of just waiting (and a thanks to Matthew Porter who emailed me his version of a fix – which I used a section of). One of the major hurdles keeping me from releasing even just this beta is that my “unique” “automatic-series-part-ordering” system was horribly broken by the new revision system introduced with WordPress 2.6. The fixes offered up by others worked for adding new series but if you modified an existing post that is a part of a series and reordered it in the series then things would go haywire. So, I needed time to test and fix – which I haven’t had much of. Well today, sitting at my wife’s bedside in the hospital while she sleeped (and staying up a bit later too) I managed to hack off this beta. Here’s the rough changelist:
- Fixed the bug that caused an incorrect url for the “Manage->Series” and “Settings->Series” pages. My fix should work for all future versions of WP.
- Added a fix to allow OrgSeries to work as expected if users customize the location of their wp-content folder (which was made possible with WordPress 2.6+)
- Added fix for any calls made to the ‘wp-config.php’ file in orgSeries (see here for my reference)
- Think I’ve nailed the “future-posts-that-are-a-part-of-a-series-showing-up-live” bug that’s been reported by some users. If you “future-publish” a post that is part of a series it shouldn’t show up on your live blog to users anymore.
- And of course fixed the incorrect numbering of parts in the series issues brought on by the new revisions feature in WordPress 2.6+
- There are more fixes/updates in this version as well – you can see the full changeset here.
