I am testing a new version of the Verse-O-Matic plugin that will get it a little closer to my original idea. I have allowed for the text file storing the verses to be multi-dimensional in that it can store the version, the scripture reference, the verse text, and an associated link in a delimited format. The new Verse-O-Matic then randomizes the set, picks one, and displays appropriately.
I will be testing generic cialis this a little more and release Verse-O-Matic 2.0 beta in a day or two. Until then, feel free to continue to use the current version as the upgrade will only require modifications to the verse-o-matic-list.txt file.
The new alpha version is currently being used in the sidebar of this site.
[UPDATE: This version is not longer available. The current Verse-O-Matic is available at wordpress.org]
Awhile back I created a plugin to display a random verse on the sidebar of this site. I usually do things like this mainly for the tinkering.
Anyway, I’ve packaged this up for download if anyone needs a random verse display on their site. It is fairly straighforward and simple.
- Download the .zip file and extract it.
- Copy the files (except install.txt) to your wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Figure out where you want the verse to display.
- Call it with the function verse_o_matic()
- Go to the plugins area of your WP admin
- Activate Verse-O-Matic in the menu
You can edit the list of verses from within WordPress by clicking the link in the plugin menu, or by editing the file verse-o-matic-list.txt directly. Just make sure that you put the entire verse on one line.
Also, I put a link to an online tract around the function call, so all verses go to the same link. But you could probably put links into the txt file as well if you wanted to send things to different places. That might be something I work on in the next version.
