Hi. While series work great in Dev.to the sorting is solely based on date of the blog posts. It would be really great to have a way to manually order the posts or update existing order in a series.
This is important cause, there are some cases in which you want to post later but have an order to the series which makes more sense.
In my case, I publish 1 blog out of every 3-4 blogs in Dev.to to other platforms like The New Stack which require exclusive 2 week access. So, I have to hold publishing in Dev.to till then. But later add the post as part of the series when the window expires.
Describe the solution you'd like
Ability to manually reorder posts in a series
Describe alternatives you've considered
No alternatives available except not using the series feature in Dev.to
On a side note, I don't see an ability to delete a series.
This type of request has come up more than once.
When authors create a series the posts are sorted by date created. This feature request proposes that authors should be able to manually sort the posts in a series or update the existing order.
I would love to hear peoples thoughts on this type of feature.
- Has this situation been a pain point for you?
- Would this feature help your experience on DEV or any other Forem instance?
- Any other thoughts?
