LDS Linker

Automagically changes any Latter-day Saint scripture reference into a hyperlink pointing to the passage at the Internet Edition of the LDS Scriptures.

LDS Linker is a WordPress plugin that automagically changes any Latter-day Saint scripture reference into a hyperlink pointing to the appropriate passage at the Internet Edition of the LDS Scriptures. It recognizes references whether the book name is written out or shortened using the standard abbreviations.

Features

  • You can choose two different ways of linking to LDS Standard Works passages. To understand the difference, compare these two links: (1) direct lookup: Moroni 10:3–5, and (2) passage search: Moroni 10:3–5.
  • You can control whether the scripture links open in a new window or the same window.
  • You can prevent the linking of any passage by preceding it with an exclamation mark, ie. !Moroni 10:3-5. The exclamation mark will not show up in the published blog post. This is mostly useful when you inadvertently trigger a scripture link where you don’t want one, as in “the Omni 2 digital camera is an improvement over the popular Omni 1.”
  • You can optionally disable linking of all Bible references so as not to conflict with other Bible linking plugins such as the excellent Holy Scripturizer.

Known issues

  • Does not play well with many code prettification plugins like Markdown, Textile, etc.
