Update: Series design has changed since this was posted, but details of the post are still accurate.
This is a funny one.
This functionality was built at the model layer forever ago, but in search of the right user experience, we never fully shipped it. The basic feature actually existed when I was working on dev.to solo if I remember correctly.
The functionality I speak of is the ability for folks to create "series" of posts.
Here's an example of a series post (linked manually by admins)
Now you can create your own series. If you're using "v1" of the editor, you can add
series: to the frontmatter. Give the same series name to any post that should appear in the feature.
If you're using "v2 beta", you can add the series name in a slightly more UI-visible way.
You may agree with me that this is not the universe's most user-friendly way to manage this, but I decided this just shouldn't keep waiting forever. Had to ship something.
This was definitely shipped quite hastily once I got the itch. Moving fast, break all the things. As it were.
So if you have a series of posts which naturally follow one another. Feel free to add them to a series now. This has not been thoroughly tested. If you run into a bug, feel free to raise an issue, or even submit a PR. No pressure 😄
Happy coding ❤️
