  1. Pinned
    Improved Sermon Layout - Grid View

    To ensure that all sermons are able to be displayed beautifully and clean, whether churches have an image assign or not, we are looking at making some improvements to the Advanced Sermons default grid view. These improvements include adding a small border around each sermon and condensing the overall footprint. We would love feedback from the Advanced Sermons community if this is an improvement you would like us to roll out in the next coming update. See the attached image below for a sneak peak.

  2. Book filter order

    It would be useful to be able to order the books in the filter dropdown in either a drag and drop format or manual order of choice, as the books of the Bible is not necessarily in alphabetical order.

  3. Override video player template function

    Other video platforms are growing, we plan to switch to Rumble and would greatly benefit from customization options for the video embed. A simple if not function exists for the video template would enable it to be overridden to support custom platforms. Just 2 lines of code: if (!function_exists('asp_sermon_video_template')) { function asp_sermon_video_template() { ... } }

  4. More filter options

    It would be great to have more options for the filter, such as filtering by year and date. And a search option to find sermons by title and so on.

  5. More options for language settings

    Would be great to have more options to change the language since using the current available options many words still can not be translated. For example: "All Series" and "All Books" using the filter. "Filtered By" and "Clear" "Previous" and "Next" in the navigation Same for the wordpress backend. Would be great if that could be implemented Sa

  6. Completed series

    Would be awesome to flag a series as complete in the back-end with the result that in the front-end the series would display all the sermons from old to new for easier playback.

  7. Integrate VideoPress

    The plugin is already great, but I am missing one feature: As a VideoPress subscriber, I'd like to integrate sermons hosted on VideoPress. This could easily be done via a field where you enter a VideoPress shortcode.

  8. Pagination via shortcode

    So if I want to display the latest 3 sermons on any given page via a shortcode, there should be a way to either 'load more', or via arrows/navigation, be able to flip through more sermons if someone wants to look back past the latest 3. The same goes for series, etc. Pagination works great in the archive, but not via shortcode.

  10. Additional Series Information

    In Advanced Sermons 2.8 we will be adding a new field to the series taxonomy. The new field will allow users to enter the start date of the series. This gives users more information about the series and it's timeline. This new field does not control the order of the series are displayed in.

  11. Image Aspect Ratios

    We're revamping the way sermon and series images are displayed on the frontend. We're switching over to an aspect ratio approach in version 2.8. This will ensure churches can display their full sermon image without it getting cropped out.

  13. Single Sermon Featured Image

    We have now made it so when there are no videos applied to a sermon, the sermon featured image will not display on the single sermon template where the video player would be. If a video is applied, it will display the video player only as normal. This will be released in Advanced Sermons 2.8.

  14. Overridable Template Files

    Since the launch of Advanced Sermons we have had a handful of requests to make the archive and single sermon templates overridable. We are happy to announce that this will be in the release of Advanced Sermons 2.8. We will include online documentation on how to override these files in your theme or child theme upon the release.
