Overview of the Manage Series Feature

The Manage Series feature is available in the Free and Pro versions of PublishPress Series. This feature allows you to quickly manage all posts linked to a Series. You can use this screen to re-order, schedule publish, and unpublish all the posts in a Series.

Here are some of the tools on this screen that you can use to manage your series:

  • Series order: This allows you to change the order of the posts in your series.
  • Publish or schedule posts: Either publish the whole series now, or schedule it for the future.
  • View series in admin: Allows you to browse all the posts in the series in your WordPress dashboard.
  • View series in frontend: Takes you to the visitors' view of this series.

Series order

If you click on “Series order” you will be taken to the screen show in the image below. This feature allows you to drag-and-drop the posts in the Series into a new order. Take a look at the image below and you'll see that movies are in wrong order (if you don't like Star Wars, you'll have to trust us on this).
