A custom theme using WordPress and the Genesis Framework was developed for the author of an online serialized book. A custom post type and templates were used. The book chapters and sections were organized by their order in the book, and not when they were published.

The site was later changed, removing the serialized book, and adding short stories instead. The stories are also a custom post type with custom templates, with a customized story navigation, so visitors can move easily from on story section to another.

The same large image was used for all the sections in each chapter, and now for each story.

Since the book was serialized, simple navigation was needed to move from one section or chapter to the next. The navigation needed to work by chapter section, and not by publish date.

All of the chapters were automatically listed at the end of each page, so readers could quickly move to a previous chapter or section.
