Support » Plugin: Advanced Sermons » Is it possible to add custom components without shortcodes

  • Resolved jmclean


    I’m very much dissatisfied with Sermon Manager (currently paying for pro) and looking for alternatives. I’m a developer and need to be able integrate the plugin into the theme organically without using shortcodes, but I’m not seeing anywhere in the documentation that allows that. Here are some things that I need to add into my theme with PHP:

    1. Most recent sermon
    2. List of 5 most recent sermon series
    3. Customizable single sermon page UI in the theme
    4. Customizable sermon list UI in the theme
    5. Customizable sermon series list UI in the theme
    6. API to get all of those for our mobile app

    Also, is migrating from Sermon Manager into Advanced Sermons possible?

    Looking forward to response.

    Hello @jmclean,

    Advanced Sermons uses a combination of templates and shortcodes to display the sermon information.

    The primary archive and single sermon templates are built using templates and can be customized with hooks. You can view all available hooks here:

    You can also use the shortcodes included in Advanced Sermons Pro to display recent sermons and information within your WordPress theme. You can view all available shortcodes here: You can also create your own shortcodes if you have the knowledge.

    Just note, the filter functionality and pagination is strictly available to the archive template.

    As for API, you would need to utilize the default WordPress API and all can be tested with the free version of Advanced Sermons to make sure it meets your requirements.

    Best regards,
    Kevin Wilgenbusch
