Translating a ClassicPress plugin: Series Index

ClassicPress PluginsI started using WordPress when I launched this blog back in 2011 and a couple of years later started writing plugins to add missing functionality. At the end of last year I switched over to ClassicPress, a hard-fork of WordPress.

As part of my transition to ClassicPress I created new versions of my plugins which added new functionality and improved security. I had already done some work to internationalize my plugins, but took the opportunity to improve this aspect as well.

Having done so, I thought that a series on how to internationalize and localize plugins might be a useful thing to write; while the series is targeted at plugins, as I am a plugin author, the principles are the same for themes.

This series will include a couple of sub-series as well as the core series; the index for all are below and will automatically grow as the posts go live.

GP Power Tools Build 26 & 27 New Features: Series Index

Winthrop DCThere are a large number of ISV products available to extend Microsoft Dynamics GP, and I’ve taken a look at a very few of them recently. One I looked at last year was the David Musgrave.

I took a Hands On look at implementing the GP Power Tools product followed by going hands on with two of the modules:

I did mean to take a look at more of the modules, but got sidetracked. Since then, there have been a number of changes to the GP Power Tools, which I will be taking a look at in this series.

PowerShell for Hyper-V: Series Index

Hyper-VWhen I joined ISC Software Solutions I received a new work laptop. This gave me both the need and, importantly, the time to get everything setup as I need it. This included creating new demo VMs to use.

In the past, I had one VM for each version with everything installed. This time round I have created two VMs, one hosting a Domain Controller and the other a SQL Server, which I will then use with a version based server.

To make things a little easier, I have created some PowerShell scripts to handle the VMs. This is a short series of posts for the scripts I have (none of them are complex, but I’m posting them here for easy access.

Adventures With A Raspberry Pi: Series Index

Raspberry PiI’ve looked at the Raspberry Pi a number of times over the years, but never bought one as I both lacked a convincing use case and have virtually zero experience with non-Windows operating systems. However, more recently, I have reached my limit with how intrusive online adverts have become and have finally bought a Raspberry Pi and installed Pi-Hole.

I have a number of posts about my adventures with a Raspberry PI in which I am going to be looking at how to assemble and install the Raspberry PI as well as my experiences with Pi-Hole and probably some other software.

If you’re reading this post on azurecurve, this index will automatically update, otherwise you need to check back to the original post.

azurecurve ClassicPress Plugins: Series Index

ClassicPress PluginsThis is part of the azurecurve ClassicPress Plugins which introduces the plugins I have available for ClassicPress.

The plugin I am going to cover in this post, is an existing one which has been brought up to coding standards; Series Index.


The Series b=Index uses Series and Series Position custom fields to groups posts together into a series: the series-index shortcode can be used on a post to place the series index.

Defaults are configurable via the plugin Settings page, but parameters can be used to customise the output of each series index if required.

A series index post can be created using a Series Position of 0.

Additional shortcodes available are:

  • index-of-series – which allows an index of all series index posts to be displayed.
  • series-index-link – allows a link to be created back to the series index post.

This plugin integrates with the Toggle Show/Hide plugin.


This site makes extensive use of this plugin:

  • The series-index shortcode has been used to include the series index at the bottom of this post.
  • The index-of-series shortcode has been used on the Index of Series page.
  • The first paragraph of this post uses the series-index-link shortcode to create the link back to the parent post.


The plugin can be downloaded via my Development site.
