Embed Bible Passages

Provides the ability to embed Bible Readings Plans into a post or page using shortcode.

== 1.5.2 = Delays loading the Bible Readings until the HTML page is completely loaded to help resolve formating issues in some cases.

== 1.5.1 = Adds inserting a "Loading" image in place of the Bible Readings when a new date is selected. This image is replaced by the Bible Readings when they are loaded.

1.5 = 1. Now uses the WordPress audio shortcode method to implement the audio player for MP3, thereby effecting improved fallback options for a variety of devices.

  1. Corrected a problem with Firefox for Android which, before this update, was playing all audios on the page whenever it was opened.


Uses an AJAX loading spinner with a transparent background to make it compatible with more designs.


Uses a relative AJAX URL to avoid false cross-domain blocking when more than one URL points to the same site.


  1. Provided the ability to choose MP3 or Flash for the format of the audio.

  2. Made MP3 the default for Android, as it has been for iPhone and iPad since version 0.7, since Adobe no longer supports Android.

  3. Added the use of HTML5 audio tags if MP3 is in use and provided fallback to embedded audio or a link for browsers which cannot handle HTML5 audio tags.

  4. Reordered the administrative panel.

  5. Added "Loading" image to page. This image is replaced by the Bible Readings when they are loaded.


The client's time is used to set the date of the Bible readings loaded initially.


  1. Scriptures are loaded by jQuery both initially and by Datepicker (if it is used) to help achieve uniformity in formatting.

  2. JavaScript for Datepicker only loaded to footer when Datepicker is used.


Change loading readings from jQuery.load() to the WordPress AJAX system (http://codex.wordpress.org/AJAX_in_Plugins).


Cleanup to bring to version 1.0 status.


Correction to committment of revision to repository in order to include new file created for version 0.7.


  1. IMPORTANT CHANGE: A correction to the shortcode naming system: The shortcode is now [embed_bible_passage reading_plan='bcp']. (reading-plan has been changed to reading_plan. See http://codex.wordpress.org/Shortcode_API.)

  2. The ability to use other than the default reading plan.

  3. An optional ability for users to select passages for days other than the current day by clicking on a calendar.

  4. An mp3 audio file is used for iPhone and iPad, rather than the default Flash audio file.


Improves the documentation and corrects the link in the "Powered by" attribution at the bottom of pages.


Adds the ability to optionally show a "Powered by" attribution at the bottom of pages.
