Customizing Series Archive Templates in your Theme

The series archive template is what gets loaded when viewers visit the page listing all the content in any series. 

For All Series

To customize the layout for this to be different from other taxonomy type templates in your WordPress install (other taxonomies are things like categories, or tags):

  • create a file called taxonomy-series.php within your active theme's folder in your WordPress site install
  • copy the code from your theme's archive.php file and use that as the basis for building out how the series archive page looks.
  • You'll also want to take a look at all the template tags you can use for series in the orgSeries-template-tags.php file.

For Specific Series:

What if you want to create a template that will be used for a specific series?

  • Create a file named taxonomy-series-{series-slug}.php file and replace {series-slug} with the slug of your series.
  • Place this file in your theme's folder.
