Post Series Manager

Our first plugin. A collaboration between Adam Soucie and myself.

This plugin will help you manage and display post series more easily. You’ll be able to create/assign series and display other posts in the series.

It consists of a custom taxonomy (post-series) and two shortcodes post_series_block and post_series_nav.

It can be downloaded from Bitbucket or simply installed through the WordPress plugin repository.

Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t want it to show up before/after/somewhere else, what do I do?

The plugin is set up in such a way that the content filters that are put in place can be removed fairly simply. Add one, or both, of the following to your functions.php:

    // Remove the shortcode that's automatically added before the content
    remove_filter( 'the_content', array( $post_series_manager, 'post_series_before' ) );
    // Remove the shortcode that's automatically added after the content
    remove_filter( 'the_content', array( $post_series_manager, 'post_series_after' ) );

How do I use the shortcodes?

The shortcodes are simple and have no additional parameters to use. The shortcodes that are available are:

  • post_series_block – this is normally added before the content
  • post_series_nav – this is normally added after the content
