This is a plugin to insert a scripture verse into your blog.
Installation of the Verse-O-Matic plugin is very straight forward.
Alternate installation instructions for non-widget themes:
Now that you have installed the Verse-O-Matic, you may make changes to the settings and add/edit scripture verses in the WP admin panel. The Verse-O-Matic settings are available as a tab under the "Settings" menu: Settings > Verse-O-Matic.
Static ID - This is used in conjunction with the Static Specific display method. If you have selected Static Specific, you must specify the ID number of the verse you wish to display (ID is noted in the table of verses).
Turn on alternate version links? - This is set to either "Yes" or "No." If you choose to display alternate version links, the Verse-O-Matic will determine the translation version (i.e. KJV, NIV, ESV) of the displayed verse and list links to alternate versions on either GoodNews Press (ESV) or Bible Gateway (all others).
Limit number of alternate version links? - If set to yes, the alternate versions will be limited to four. This was added for sidebars that might be tight on space and roll the alternate version bar to a second line.
These are the verses that are loaded in to your Verse-O-Matic. Verse-O-Matic installs several examples when the plugin is first activated. You may use them if you wish, or delete them. They are merely provided as examples of various features of the Verse-O-Matic.
This table can be sorted by ID, by Reference (alphabetically), by translation version (alphabetically), or by date.
The "Link" column indicates if the verse content has a hyperlink. If a verse is in the Verse-O-Matic, but not set to be visible on the site, the "Visible" column will indicate "No.". The "Date" Column indicates the date the verse is set to display. If the verse is the Verse of the Day, the line will be highlighted in green.
The final two columns allow you to edit or delete a verse.
Reset Daily Random Verse will reset whatever the random verse of the day is. CAUTION: this clears ALL dates to NULL. If you have preset a number of verses to display on specific days, I would advise not using this button since your work will be lost.
This is where you add new content to the Verse-O-Matic. Verse, Book, Chapter, Verse, and Version should all be self explanatory.
Link - this field allows you to set the text of the verse to hyperlink to anything you wish. If you are linking to a site outside your site, be sure to set the link to http://thedomain.com. If it's a page in your site, you can make it relative, i.e. /mypage.php (the Link column above will allow you to check the link). If you are not using this field you may leave it blank.
Date - use this if you are setting verses to display on specific dates (and have the display method set to date specific). Otherwise, leave it blank.
Visible - if you have set a verse but do not want it to display, set to "No" otherwise leave it at the default - "Yes."
Edit a Verse:
If you need to make edits to verses you've added, select "Edit" in the Verses table. You will get the same fields as "Add Verse" but they will be populated with the verse to edit.
