New WordPress LDS Scripture Linker Plugin for Bloggers

For some time I’ve been using the excellent LDS Linker WordPress plugin, developed by Joey Day, to automatically link all scripture references on TempleStudy.com directly to the Church’s online scriptures at scriptures.lds.org. It worked very well, and continues to be one of the most popular WordPress plugins for LDS bloggers to link their scripture references to the online scriptures.

Recently I was thinking how much easier it would be to just hover your mouse over a scripture reference and see a popup with the scripture reference written out. It would make reading the scripture references that much quicker in a blog post, rather than clicking a link to another site.

A couple months ago I began some conversations with Steven Lloyd, developer of DearScriptures.com, the same person who developed the ability to search the scriptures via instant messaging (a feature I use often). He began work on a WordPress plugin that would give LDS bloggers the ability to have scripture reference popups on their blogs. Over the last month Steven has worked hard on the plugin. He asked me for feedback, and I gave him some tips and suggestions along the way.
