Truth

Description

The Truth plugin will scan the content of your posts, pages, comments, and widgets for references to Bible verses and can generate two types of links from these references.

bibles.org

Truth utilizes the highlighter tool from bibles.org to generates links that, when clicked, will display a modal containing the verse that has been referenced. The following Bible versions are currently supported:

  • Amplified Bible (AMP)
  • The Holy Bible: American Standard Version (ASV)
  • Contemporary English Version (US Version) (CEV)
  • Contemporary English Version (US Version) (CEVD)

FAQ

Can I display a pop-up bubble showing the text of the passage?

As of Truth v2.0, you can display a modal when utilizing Bibles.org Highlighter as your Bible service. Due to the Terms of Use for YouVersion and lack of an API, the plugin is not able to publicly display works based on YouVersion.

How do I define my shortcode?

[truth version=”nkjv”]2 Corinthians 1:20[/truth]

Can the Truth plugin be used on a multisite install?

Yes. Upload truth.php to /wp-content/mu-plugins/ (auto-enables use on every site) or upload the truth directory to /wp-content/plugins/ and manage through your plugin menu.

How do I authorize use on all sites of a multisite install?

In the plugin file (line 22), set define( TRUTH_AUTH_ALL, TRUE );

Reviews

Not working

Trying to start using,
but with WP 4.6: installation failed.
Any experiences ?

1.7 to 2.0 (Responsive Theme)

I updated from 1.7 to 2.0 tonight and there was a conflict that crashed my site. I have not determined as of yet which other plugin if any in combination with 2.0 that created this result. In the meantime I down graded back to version 1.7 till I can figure out the cause. This is a wonderful plugin and very much appreciated. The ability to curtail each verse reference in the NASB version our church uses is a big plus. Thank you

Just what we needed

Just what our church website needed! For consecration this year we put our daily reading list of bible verses on our website. With this plugin our members can easily view and read their bible verses each day. Our members are very pleased! Thank you to the developers for helping us connect with the bible.com so easily. Thank you for blessing is with this plugin!
