Verse Links is an easily extendable plugin that will find all references to Bible verses and passages within blog posts and comments and automatically link them to a verse lookup site of your choice. For example, Genesis 1:1-2 automatically becomes Genesis 1:1-2. Common abbreviations and book names variants also work, such as Gen 1:1, First Timothy 2:3 and 1 Tim 2:3.
The plugin currently supports the following sites by default:
It can also easily be modified to support other sites by editing the sites.php file. To add a new site simply copy and paste one of the $vl_sites lines and specify the correct parameters. For example, here is the line for YouVersion.com:
$vl_sites["YouVersion.com"] = array(
This specifies the url patterns to use when looking up a single verse or a range of verses and that YouVersion doesn't support looking up passages that span multiple chapters. Also that they use "songs" in the urls instead of the default book name of "song_of_solomon". More instructions are available within the sites.php file.
New in version 1.2 is the option to to include mouse over tooltips on each of the links so that visitors can view the verse contents without leaving your blog.
