For those unfamiliar with Scripturizer, it is a plugin for the Movable Type blogging system. When you include Bible references such as Romans 3:23 or Romans 1:16-32 the system will automatically convert them to links to the passage on either the Bible Gateway or ESV (for those who choose the ESV) website.
The plugin provides plenty of ways to recognize and link your reference. I will illustrate a few with text. Romans 3: 23 is a classic verse which sums Paul’s argument in Romans that all (both Jew and Gentile) are sinners. He starts this argument around Romans 1: 16 – 17 and extends it all the way through Romans 2 and then conludes with Romans 3. Some significant verses throughout this passage include Romans 1:16-17, 2:1&29, 3:10-20.
The parenthesis problem involved with spaces has also been fixed (John 3:16).
Update: Since I have updated to MT 3.1 I have not gotten scripturizer to work. That is the reason you don’t see anything linked as I state in the post.
