The PublishPress Series Plugin is Available

Last month, we adopted the “Organize Series” plugin.

We're pleased to say we've renamed the plugin “PublishPress Series” and have released a new version of the plugin with many bug-fixes and improvements.

PublishPress Series is a plugin that allows you to group content together into a series. This is ideal for magazines, newspapers, short-story writers, teachers, comic artists, or anyone who writes multiple posts on the same topic.

The plugin aligns perfectly with our goal at PublishPress, which is to help WordPress publishers succeed.

The plugin now has its own penguin banner on the WordPress plugin repository:

The image below gives a good idea of how the Series display on your site when you add posts to a series. Users will see three main things:

  • A banner at the top of the post: “This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series”.
  • An automatic display of all the posts in the series.
  • A navigation area at the bottom of the post.

All of these displays can be modified or replaced using widget, shortcodes, or template tags.
