  1. Attach Sermon Resources - A Useful Addition?

    Hey Advanced Sermons community, Our team is looking at integrating a new feature to Advanced Sermons Pro to give churches the ability to attach resources to sermons. This is a feature that is more than just sermon notes, but would allow you to link additional pages, posts, events, and external links to a sermons. Not only would this be useful to users to view additional content that the sermon is related to, but would also be beneficial for SEO to create some internal linking. We would love to get some feedback from the community on if this is something that would be of interest.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow Books to be grouped under Old and New Testament

    It would be really helpful to enable a parent filter label under "Books" and allow the books of the Bible to be grouped under Old and New Testament respectively. It will enable more accurate filtering. I would really love to see this come to life.

  8. More Language Options

    With the release of Advanced Sermons 3.0 right around the corner, we're proud to introduce a ton of new features and improvements to Advanced Sermons. One of these improvements is with the language settings of Advanced Sermons. We have expanded greatly on this functionality to include all aspects of the plugin to be translatable directly from our Language settings page to eliminate the need of 3rd party plugins like Loco Translate. The plugin will still support 3rd party plugins like Loco Translate if you wish to continue to use them.

  9. Embed Video Functionality

    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() { ... } }

  10. Connected Filters. Finally!

    We're excited to announce a new feature in the Advanced Sermons plugin: Connected Filters. This enhancement aims to improve the user experience by ensuring that the filtering options on the archive page are interconnected, providing more relevant and streamlined results. What Are Connected Filters? Currently, when a user selects a filter, such as 'Series,' on the archive page, other taxonomies like speakers, topics, and books do not update based on this selection. This means that even if a user selects a specific series like 'Evergreen,' they still see all speakers, regardless of their relevance to the chosen series. Connected Filters address this by dynamically updating the available options in other taxonomies based on the selected filter. For example: If a user selects the series 'Evergreen,' only the speakers who have sermons in the 'Evergreen' series will be displayed. Similarly, other taxonomies like topics and books will also update to show only relevant options. How to Use Connected Filters For users with existing installations, it is necessary to sync the data with the new table structure. This can be easily done by using a sync button we are planning to add to the options panel. This step is crucial to ensure that your data is updated and fully compatible with the Connected Filters feature. If you're just getting started with Advanced Sermons, there is no additional steps needed. What's Next? Stay tuned for more updates and enhancements in our plugin roadmap. We're committed to making Advanced Sermons the best tool for managing and showcasing your sermons. If you have any questions or need assistance with the new feature, feel free to reach out to our support team. Thank you for your continued support!

  13. Improved Keyword Search Functionality

    We are excited to announce significant enhancements to the keyword search functionality in Advanced Sermons. You can now find the content you're looking for more easily by searching for partial keywords instead of exact matches. This means that if you search for "George," the results will include all sermons containing that keyword, without needing the full keyword like "George Krenz."

    In an effort to enhance the flexibility and internationalization of our Advanced Sermons plugin, we are excited to introduce a new filter: asp_bible_book_list(). This filter allows developers to customize the list of Bible books categorized under the Old and New Testaments. This customization can cater to different languages, denominational preferences, or specific regional variations. Purpose of the Filter The asp_bible_book_list() filter enables developers to modify the default lists of Old and New Testament books that our plugin uses to categorize sermons. By using this filter, developers can ensure that our plugin seamlessly integrates into websites that cater to diverse audiences and linguistic groups. How to Use the asp_bible_book_list() Filter Below, we provide an example on how a developer can use the following filter to sort Books in the spanish language: function custom_spanish_bible_book_list($books) { $books['Old Testament'] = [ 'Génesis', 'Éxodo', 'Levítico', 'Números', 'Deuteronomio', 'Josué', 'Jueces', 'Rut', '1 Samuel', '2 Samuel', '1 Reyes', '2 Reyes', '1 Crónicas', '2 Crónicas', 'Esdras', 'Nehemías', 'Ester', 'Job', 'Salmos', 'Proverbios', 'Eclesiastés', 'Cantar de los Cantares', 'Isaías', 'Jeremías', 'Lamentaciones', 'Ezequiel', 'Daniel', 'Oseas', 'Joel', 'Amós', 'Abdías', 'Jonás', 'Miqueas', 'Nahúm', 'Habacuc', 'Sofonías', 'Ageo', 'Zacarías', 'Malaquías' ]; $books['New Testament'] = [ 'Mateo', 'Marcos', 'Lucas', 'Juan', 'Hechos', 'Romanos', '1 Corintios', '2 Corintios', 'Gálatas', 'Efesios', 'Filipenses', 'Colosenses', '1 Tesalonicenses', '2 Tesalonicenses', '1 Timoteo', '2 Timoteo', 'Tito', 'Filemón', 'Hebreos', 'Santiago', '1 Pedro', '2 Pedro', '1 Juan', '2 Juan', '3 Juan', 'Judas', 'Apocalipsis' ]; return $books; } add_filter('asp_bible_book_list', 'custom_spanish_bible_book_list');
