Changing the Series Overview Page

The Series Overview page shows all the posts inside a single Series.

This Series Overview page is not created by the PublishPress Series plugin. Instead, it uses the archive or taxonomy template of your theme. If you don't want to use this default template, you can use a different file.

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 the PublishPress Series plugin. You can choose from a “Grid” and a “Layout” option your Series Overview.

  • 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.
  • Copy the file into your theme or child theme's folder.
  • Customize the HTML to match the design of your theme.

It's also possible create a template that will be used for one specific series. Here's how you can create a template for one specific series:

  • Follow the steps from “Customize template for all Series” section above.
