Dean Peters has updated the Scripturizer plugin. The update includes some basic bug fixes and some new features that are really nice.
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.
Hey, I know this post is quite old but I noticed that this plugin is still functional on your blog. I’m assuming you fixed the code because it is not working on any other blogs that claim to use the Scripurizer plugin.
I would really like to use this plugin on my blog, but can’t get the mouse over effect to work on the latest version of WordPress. Would you mind emailing me a zip folder with the code you’re using? I would greatly appreciate it!
I’m using The Holy Sctipurizer plugin now from http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/the-holy-scripturizer/. I haven’t modified the code any. I’ll e-mail you separately.
