The In Series WordPress Plugin by Remstate has been updated recently. The Plugin makes writing article series and connecting them together in a series simple and easy, adding a link list of the articles in the series to each post within the series.
I’m a major fan of the popular, In Series WordPress Plugin, especially as the original author, Scott Merrill (Skippy), wrote it just for me. I’m so spoiled. Travis of REM State has taken it over, thankfully, and totally rewritten the entire WordPress Plugin so it is better than ever. And now it has been updated.
It works with WordPress 2.3 and now includes multi-lingual support and more flexibility. The next version, In Series 3.1.0 Beta 1 is available for those who want to help improve this popular Plugin.
Remstate is also looking for translation volunteers to help create and improve the languages of the Plugin, which currently includes French, German, and Polish.
Gone is the need to write up table of contents and next and previous links in each post in your article series. The In Series WordPress Plugin works without interaction with the WordPress Theme template files now. Just set the new controls added to the Write Post panel to designate which series the post is within. It allows re-ordering the posts within the series, or even removing it from the series without losing the post. All kinds of links such as navigational links, tables of content, next and previous links, and more are added to each post to connect them in the series.
The latest version also adds a “Series” panel under Options in the WordPress Administration Panel for controlling how In Series displays its content of links and navigation aids within your blog posts.
I wish WordPress.com would add this powerful article series Plugin to its arsenal, but if you have a full version WordPress blog, and you like writing articles in series, then this is the perfect WordPress Plugin.
