Serial Posts FAQ

This is the FAQ for the Serial Posts plugin for WordPress. Links to other resources for this plugin can be found in the menu in the sidebar.

Current version of the plugin is: 1.3.2

Why would I want to use this plugin?
  • If you are using WordPress to publish online books or tutorials, and you want to present material (ie your posts) in an "oldest first" form, and you want to do this independant of categories, tags, custom taxonomies etc, then this plugin is for you.
  • A typical usage would be for a story or article published in several "chapters", each chapter being a separate Post.
  • The main feature of the plugin is that it creates a list of Posts, which belong to the same Serial, on the single post page of relevant Posts.
  • If you simply want a list of related posts there are much better solutions than this plugin! :-)
Can I create more than one Serial?

Yes, you can create as many different Serials as you wish. However, you cannot assign a Post or a Page to more than one Serial.

Why is the list of Posts displayed with oldest at the top of the list?

This is intentional so that each post appears like a chapter in a book or a serial - which is the whole point of the plugin in the first place.

Where can I get Support?

Further information about setting up and using the plugin can be found in the plugin's Configuration Guide and a comprehensive Tutorial.

If, having read the information linked to above, you cannot solve your issue, or if you find a bug, you can post a message on the plugin's Support Forum.
