I just implemented sermon browser on our new church website, and it works great with one exception.  There is no download link neither beside nor below the audio player.  I can see the [file_with_download] tag in the template, but the code never makes it into the page for some reason.  The site is at  I'd appreciate any help you can give me.

I'd like you to go post a few things on here from your site.  First, go to your Sermon page template and copy all the text in the box.  Then go to and paste your Sermon page template there.  After you hit submit, you'll be given a URL that you can post here so we can take a look at your template.

Also, I'd like you to open up your dictionary.php file from your Sermon Browser installation and paste that entire file into as well.  Post the link to that one on here as well.

If you have any questions on how to do this, please feel free to ask.

Are you sure the audio file uploaded and is attached to the sermon post?

Go to "Sermons" in your admin panel and click "Edit" on one of the sermons listed there.  At the bottom of that page, under "attachments" you should see the name of the audio file "something.mp3".

If that isn't there, try selecting "Choose existing file" and then see if your sermon is listed in the second drop-down box.  If so, select it and save.  If not, select "Upload a new one:", browse to your file and upload it.  Make sure it's completely finished before you click "save."


Let us know how this goes.

Thanks bdparker,


A download link is now present if someone selects the sermons title.  Is there a way to show a download link under the audio player on the main page?

Matt, I am using MediaElements.js as my audio player plug-in in conjunction with SermonBrowser. If you are using the same, you can use this shortcode in the SermonBrowser Options page, under "MP3 Shortcode".


[mejsaudio src="%SERMONURL%"]<p><a href="%SERMONURL%">Download audio file</a></p>


That should do the trick.
