  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.

  7. Campus & Service Type Addons

    To make sure Advanced Sermons is compatible with all church requirements we have created two addons for Advanced Sermons that extends its ability by creating a custom taxonomy for Campuses and Service Types. You can read more and download these addons here: https://advancedsermons.com/docs/add-custom-taxonomies-to-advanced-sermons/ Note: These are built to work with Advanced Sermons 3.0 to make sure you update your Advanced Sermons plugin to the latest version before installing. If anyone has other taxonomy requests, please let us know and we will be more than happy to create some additional addons for the community.

  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() { ... } }

  11. Alternate Bible Verse Websites

    While Biblegateway.com is a great platform, and a standard for many, I've recently really enjoyed the ease with which referencing verses can be done on Bible.com (YouVersion). It would be great to include Bible.com (at least) as an option for which website to reference the verses from. If you take a look at their formatting, it's very intuitive: https://www.bible.com/bible/111/2ti.3.16 (one verse) https://www.bible.com/bible/111/2ti.3.16-17 (a passage) https://www.bible.com/bible/111/2ti.3.1,3,16-17 (multiple verses in the same chapter) The number /111/ indicates the Bible version. One nice thing about Bible.com is they also have many non-English versions available. Our church is based in Korea, so including a way to add multiple translated versions of the main scripture would be ideal. For example: [ 2 Timothy 3:16-17 ] [ ė””ėŖØė°ķ›„ģ„œ 3:16-17 ] This is the reference link for the two passages in both English and Korean (just in case you can work out how to allow both options. https://www.bible.com/bible/111/2ti.3.16-17 (English NIV) https://www.bible.com/ko/bible/88/2TI.3.16-17.KRV (Korean KRV) Even if you included an option for the user to add the base URL path or something, that might be useful. Thanks for a great plugin~~ Aaron

  12. New Sermon Data Column

    With Advanced Sermons 3.1 we're really looking at ways to improve the UI experience for creating and managing sermons. One of the new features we're excited about is the Sermon Data column that we have added. With this change we removed the 'View' column and replaced it with the 'Sermon Data' column. This column now displays which video type is added to the sermon, which audio type is added, and the view count. We will look at adding additional information in the future if requested.

  13. Option to remove Search Field from Filter

  14. Independent Content Width option for Archive Template

    We have made improvements to add an independent content width option to the archive template instead of the single sermon content width applying to both. If you have a width pre-selected for the single sermon template it will use this as the default after the new release. You can then go in to the archive settings to customize to your own preference. We also added a few additional sizes for more customization options.

  15. Ability to add start time to Vimeo Videos

    We just completed the update to the Vimeo functionality to include the ability to add a playback start time to videos using the new ?t= parameter. How to use start time: By adding ?t=2m30s to the URL, after the /video ID/, the playback will automatically start at two minutes and thirty seconds.
