Finally, I’ve managed to assemble a release-worthy version of some code I’ve been using for a while on my sermons site. When I was developing the site for hosting all the various messages I preach at my church I looked unsuccessfully for a plug-in that I could use that would help in the organization and presentation of sermon series.
Finally, I decided to take the plunge and write up some code myself. Please understand, I’m very limited in my skills at programming in PHP/MySql so what may take some a few hours ends up taking me a few weeks! Nevertheless with much persistence I came up with something that has served me well at unshamedsermons.com.
Then came the new design for my church website and my interest in starting to write “series” articles here at this blog and I started looking at packaging the crude code I was using for my sermons into a generic, yet more robust plugin that can be dropped into a fresh wordpress install and make available a way to present special series articles on one’s blog.
The end result is this first release (in other words I’m planning on continuing to develop this plugin) of the Organize Series plugin (I know, creative name isn’t it?). I decided to release it to the wild (i.e. public) as a way of giving back to a wordpress community that has helped me so much (albeit without probably knowing it that much!). Anyway, head on over to the Organize Series Plugin page to read more about it and download it!
P.S. I’m fairly certain that no hamsters were harmed in the creation of this plugin (although a few hair roots were demolished).
