Sermon Browser

Upload sermons to your website, where they can be searched, listened to, and downloaded. Easy to use with comprehensive help and tutorials.

Customisation

Sermon Browser works out of the box, but if you wish, you can customise it to fit in with your own theme, and to display or hide whatever information you choose. If you want to create an extra page on your site that just shows a few sermons (for example, just the sermons preached at a recent conference), use shortcodes. If you want to customise how Sermon Browser appears throughout your site, use template tags (scroll down for more info), or the built-in CSS editor.

Shortcodes

Shortcodes allow you to put individual sermons or lists of sermons on any page or post of your website. A simple shortcode looks like this: [sermons id=52], though you can combine parameters like this: [sermons filter=none preacher=3 series=7]. The list below gives examples of shortcode uses. A pipe character | means 'or'. So [sermons id=52|latest] means you would either write [sermons id=52], or [sermons id=latest].

[sermons id=52|latest]

Displays a single sermon page corresponding to the ID of the sermon (you can see a list of sermon IDs by looking on the Sermons page in admin). You can also use the special value of latest which displays the most recent sermon.

[sermons filter=dropdown|oneclick|none]

Specifies which filter to display with a sermon list.

[sermons filterhide=show|hide]

Specifies whether the filter should be shown or hidden by default.

[sermons preacher=6]

Displays a list of sermons preached by one preacher (you can see a list of preacher IDs by looking on the Preachers page in admin).

[sermons series=11]

Displays a list of sermons in particular series (you can see a list of series IDs by looking on the Series & Services page in admin).

[sermons service=2]

Displays a list of sermons preached at a particular service (you can see a list of service IDs by looking on the Series & Services page in admin).

[sermons book="1 John"]

Displays a list of sermons on a particular Bible book. The book name should be written out in full, and if it includes spaces, should be surrounded by quotes.

[sermons tag=hope]

Displays a list of sermons matching a particular tag.

[sermons limit=5]

Sets the maximum number of sermons to be displayed.

[sermons dir=asc|desc]

Sets the sort order to ascending or descending.

Template Tags

If you want to change the output of Sermon Browser, you'll need to edit the templates. You'll need to understand the basics of HTML and CSS, and to know the special SermonBrowser template tags. There are two templates, one (called the results page) is used to produce the search results on the main sermons page
