UPDATE: I released a Sermon Manager plugin for WordPress – available at WP for Church!
Ever since WordPress 3.0 was released, I desired to take advantage of custom post types to display sermons on our church website. I created something that is very functional for our church that I’ll be launching soon. (I’m very excited about the makeover our church site is about to get – I’ll be detailing it here when it is live!)
This week I became aware of a new plugin designed to take advantage of custom post types in WordPress. You can find all posts related to its development over at Tobias Labs. Development has been moving swiftly with several releases in the past week.
It is designed to replace the Sermon Browser plugin, which has been widely used by many churches to display sermons on their WordPress powered church websites (according to their website over 2,000 churches). It is very functional. However, the original developer has abandoned it for some time. The new “Sermon Posts” plugin by Tobias Labs is designed to replace and enhance the functionality of the original Sermon Browser plugin. It also has the ability to import from Sermon Browser. This is an awesome feature!
The plugin is currently only for testing purposes. It will require some template editing in order for your sermons to display properly.
