Current implementation of Series taxonomy using default WordPress UI is confusing considering what the Series taxonomy is supposed to do: support ordering of comics according to issues and chapters. One way to achieve this goal is to redefine how the Series taxonomy is being displayed.

Functionality

Eliminate default WordPress meta-boxes for taxonomy and the default WordPress UI for Series taxonomy (can be done on taxonomy registration).

New Meta-boxes

The default taxonomy meta-box would be replaced by two meta-boxes labeled Series > Chapter and Series > Chapter > Issue. These will be split into three taxonomies: Series, Issue, and Chapter, to make the navigation easier to deal with. Two options (Group By, and Group By Parent) in Manga+Press will need to be changed to reflect this update.

New Taxonomy Management Page

This page will replace the default WordPress UI for managing taxonomies. This will only affect the Series taxonomy. Currently, work will need to be done to determine a proper workflow for this page. The goal behind this page should be to:

  • Create a meaningful management system specific to comics
  • Eliminate the possibility of adding "grandchildren" categories as this could cause navigation issues.
  • Additionally, add new features such as Issue or Chapter "Cover" posts.
  • Cross-linking with a cast listing of Characters (proposed Character Management plugin).

To Dos

  • Wire-frames
  • Use-cases
