You can add a series to your posts by adding the series tag in the front matter of your post. For example:

title: Cool title!
tags: some, tags, here
series: The Name of Your Series

Your post here...

Just refer to the same series name to add the post to the series. Our great friend Ben here created an entire changelog for it.


Ah! I see! And in the V2 editor, you can click on the ... button at the top-right to open this window:


Holy crap that's how you do that.

A wholehearted "second" - even discovering "cover_image" was a little tricky. The message "just paste it into your editor" is only half the battle!


This PR just got merged to help 🙂

Though I suspect it still may not be fully clear. We need to keep working on this.


That actually showed me a lot of things I didn't know. Thanks!
