NIV is not included in Sermon Browser. In general, websites cannot display NIV text of more than just a few verses, due to licensing issues. You can link to NIV on Bible Gateway or YouVersion, but you can't display NIV text on your website in Sermon Browser. The Bible versions that can be used in Sermon Browser and are included in version 0.45.4 are:
esvtext - English Standard Version
kjvtext - King James Version
asvtext - American Standard Version
nettext - NET Bible (Note: Currently not working.)
ylttext - Young's Literal Translation
webtext - Word English Bible
akjvtext - American King James Version
lbrvtext - Spanish: Reina Valera (1909)
cornilescutext - Romanian: Cornilescu
synodaltext - Russian: Synodal Translation (1876)
You can also add lots of other versions in other languages. See this post for more details on that.
Alternatively, you can use the template tag "biblepassage" in your template in place of "esvtext". This will give you simply the Bible reference. This is useful in a couple of ways. First, there are a few WordPress plugins that will automatically replace Bible references on your website with a link or an excerpt of text. If you don't use one of those plugins, you could use the "biblepassage" tag to create a link to someplace like Bible Gateway or YouVersion.

I think you can display the NIV on a website using eBible.com I have it here - http://churchofourlord.org/res...../ebible/ and when I'm logged in, free account, I can and I do display the NIV In English 11 translations are currently available and quite a number of languages are supported.
One thing to display eBible in a website you need a minimum of 760 pixels width
Hope this helps.
