Is there a way (a widget, perhaps) with which all the posts by an author can be viewed as a clickable listing?
My blog is a repository for stories that will contain multiple authors (there are three at the moment), and authors will post chapters as their story moves along. Readers will need an easy way to either start at chapter 1 if they are new, or be able to find (for example) chapter 27, if that is where they left off, as they read toward chapter 38, the most recently written and posted. At the moment its not a serious problem, but it will become so, because I currently have 48 chapters written (working on 49), and the other authors both have more than 1 or 2 chapters.
What I would like is a way that after a reader gets to the site (darkeroticfiction), they can select an author, or a story (category), click on it to open a drop down menu (or something like that), and see all the available chapters (postings) in that story, or by that author, shown as clickable links. They click on the chapter they want, and get taken to that one.
My theme is Chateau. I have the "Category" and "Authors" widgets in place, but they only take you to the most recent posting. Again, once I'm up to having thirty or forty chapters up, clicking through them to get back to chapter two will deter many readers from doing so, even its more than worth it. Although I love Chateau as the Appearance, if another one will give me the feature I need, I would rather switch now rather than later.
If another widget will do what I need, that would be ideal. Who writes widgets? Is there somebody I can take this to and ask if they will consider writing it?
