Multi parts is a useful plugin that lets you write “multi-part” articles.
To mark articles that belong to the same series, define
:parts: iCloud 101 Series
Elegant shows the multi-part series in the sidebar.
Articles are sorted by their date in ascending order. The oldest article is considered “Part 1” and so on.
The currently opened article is displayed in italics. In the above example, “Part 2” is opened in the browser tab.
Title attribute of html anchor tag
<a> is set for each “Part” to its article
title; it is displayed when user hovers over the link.
As all other features, Elegant has some tricks up its sleeve.
By default Elegant uses value of
parts as the title of the series. You can
define series title for your multi-part articles series. Define
in your articles metadata, like,
:parts: iCloud 101 Series :series_title: iCloud for Dummies
And this will give you,
You have to make sure
series_title metadata is set for every article in the series.
You can also define
SERIES_TITLE in your Pelican configuration to set a
default value for
multi_part widget label.
Elegant first looks for
SERIES_TITLE in configuration, then
the article metadata, then
parts metadata which it uses as the last resort.
I recommend you to let Elegant use
parts instead of
series_title you will have to deal with the hassle of making sure all
articles in the series have it, which you are already doing for
parts. So why
double the hassle?
SERIES_TITLE you won’t be able to have custom titles for the series’.
