Overview Page

The Overview page uses the archive or taxonomy template of your theme. This is what gets loaded when viewers visit the page listing all the content in any series. 

In the Overview Page settings, choosing a layout different to “Default” will override the taxonomy template from your theme. Instead it will use a custom template from PublishPress Series plugin.

In case the result doesn't match with your theme design, you'll need to customize the taxonomy template from PublishPress Series.

We recommend first to create a child theme in order to safely apply customizations. You can use Child Theme Configurator plugin to create a child theme due makes this process really simple.

To customize the taxonomy template from our plugin:

  1. Copy the file wp-content/plugins/organize-series/inc/templates/taxonomy-series.php if you are using the Free version, or wp-content/plugins/publishpress-series-pro/inc/templates/taxonomy-series.php if you are using the Pro version.
  2. Paste the file in your theme or child theme's folder
  3. Customize the HTML to match the design of your theme

  • Follow the steps from “Customize template for All Series” section
  • Rename your file taxonomy-series-{series-slug}.php and replace {series-slug} with the slug of your series.
