USE THIS PLUG-IN
By , for WP 4.5.2

I have built-out multiple church sites using this plug-in and was able to get them up and running in no time. It is easy to learn/use and if you have any issues the documentation is thorough and great. You can also email the developer, Steven, and he will respond to you with a solution asap.

One note is to be careful of poor quality themes, like the Jesus theme, that wrongfully built-in this plug-in's features into their theme. ONLY USE THEMES THAT USE THIS PLUG-IN AND NOT COPY ITS FUNCTIONALITY. I would recommend any of the churchthemes.com themes to avoid this issue and get high quality themes and support.

works great and even greater customer service
By , for WP 4.4.2

I love this plugin you can purchase it and a theme for it at [Link redacted].

If you do use it, you won't regret it. If you need help they have excellent support and even the raw code is very nicely commented if you want to change anything.

Great Idea
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin is really a great idea. By providing the framework for sermons, events,etc. that any theme can use, now you don't have to worry about finding yourself locked into one theme. The trend today is for premium themes to include functionality that is better left to plugins. That works fine until you change themes and have to start over.

I've used this with the Resurrect theme and with the new Marantha theme (which is awesome) and it has worked flawlessly. The development guide is thorough, and has enough information for theme developers to incorporate this into their work.

Great job! I hope this continues to catch on with more church theme developers.

Portability makes sense.
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin is a really smart way for church theme creators to put the interests of churches first. This plugin stays minimal rather than bloating up. It provides only what you need to make Sermons portable from theme to theme and allows other themes/plugins to handle how those sermons are displayed. This allows for great variation in functionality while providing complete portability of sermons from theme-to-theme.

No theme will be used forever - and building sermon functionality (or ANY functionality that users will want to keep when they move) into a theme traps Churches who want to update their look and feel. This plugin does the opposite and sets them free to do what they need with their site with minimal frustration - creating a great group of themes that a user could easily migrate to.

With the plugin Post-Type and Meta variables built into a plugin, it makes it much simpler for churches to move to a new theme - and also speeds up the production of new Church Themes - which is good for everyone.

The documentation is also very good for this plugin and made it very easy to implement - although I did struggle with the built-in Event management. Regardless, there are many other great Event management plugins out there so it wasn't a requirement - as other plugins allow for portability as well.

This is another major advantage this plugin has: the choice to disable parts you don't need. I used the Sermon Functionality only and used other plugins to handle events. This flexibility is a big plus.

Intuitive Starting Point Done the Right Way
By , for WP 4.3.1

Steve has put a lot of work into building a helpful plugin that offers a tremendous framework --to borrow the term-- for launching a church website.

His custom post types just work, and because they are built the WordPress way they're extensible!

I'm working with his Exodus theme on my first project.

As I implement things I realize Steve has already built a template for it.

Already he has implemented features --as he's constantly developing his products-- that I'm wanting.

This can be used by a novice, but saves a developer a ton of time building custom post types and templates!

Perfect plugin for your church needs!
By , for WP 4.3

We just released a new theme based on this fantastic plugin

[Link redacted]

The plugin is brilliant in every way. Everything you could possibly want on your church site. Steve has seriously thought of it all. It was easy to use and develop for and the support was always right there if we needed it.

I just wanted to leave this review to thank you Steve, for bringing this to the public and for free as well, you really can't do better then this plugin.

As good as they come
By , for WP 4.1.1

I've been using this plugin the last 11 months while building my church theme shop. I've tried a lot of plugins since I started building WordPress websites during version 2.7 and believe me when I say this is as good as they come. It's easy to integrate, easy to customize and very well-written. Just browsing the source has taught me a lot.

Best of all, it really helps churches avoid the theme lock-in effect. I know that if I build themes that use this plugin, they can switch to a theme from [Link redacted], [Link redacted], [Link redacted] (my own shop), or most any church theme on ThemeForest and their content will port over seamlessly.

Well done Steven. We need more plugins like this.

Adds great functionality to your church site
By , for WP 4.1.1

Before this plug-in came around I used to hardcode all this functionality into my themes. Now I skip all that just activate the church content plug-in and I'm good to go with a whole bunch of functionality. The plugin works really well and the developer is super responsive. Top marks

Super Useful
By , for WP 4.1

So good to see a plugin that focuses on handling data and leaving the display to the theme. Improves data portability for church related content and prevents theme lock-in. I wish more plugins and themes took such a great approach!

Invaluable Tool for Modern Day Church Theme Development
By , for WP 4.0.1

This plugin is wonderful. It's primary purpose it to standardize the content and custom post types for content that is typical of churches and ministries to avoid lock-in, which happens when every developer tries to do things their own way. The team at [Link redacted] took the theme market a big step forward with the creation of this plugin and correlating framework. Thanks!
