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.
