WordPress Post Grouping Plugin

This plug-in provides a simple, transparent, and automatic way to group a number of posts on your blog. For example, you might want to group a set of posts in to a series of articles about a given topic across WordPress’s default categories or tags.

I’ve written quite a few WordPress plug-ins, check out these other WordPress plug-ins here. Many of these are quite popular, and free! There’s a super-small fee (just £2.50) for this plug-in. For that, you’ll get the plug-in of course, but you’ll also get the support you need to set the plug-in up on your standard WordPress self-hosted blog.

The small fee does not allow for any customisation of the plug-in, extra features, resolution of clashes with other WordPress plug-ins or themes, etc. So, let me know if you want those and we can talk about what to do. It does include bona fide bug fixes though; find something wrong with the plug-in, or it simply won’t work for you, and I’ll either fix it, or in a few cases (for example, where a non-standard WordPress installation stops it working) I’ll give you your money back. Can’t be fairer than that.

  • Next, you’ll go to your Settings » Series page and configure the plugin.

  • Optional. If you want to show a link to posts in a group you may want to consider inserting code like that shown below in your theme’s template files (index.php and/or single.php for instance).

<?php
  global $post; // Make sure the global $post is available if not already.
  if(function_exists('the_series_link')) {
    the_series_link($post->ID, 'Series: ');
    // Parameters are:
    // 1. the post ID, and
    // 2. content to appear before the link to the group.
  }
?>
