However my second problem whenever I click on the sermon title on the sermon file link the page opens up to the page heading "AUDIO FILES" with a blank page my website link is http://www.apwin.org/sermons u will see the plugin functioning giving u the opportunity to click the speaker and play the file but if u attempt to click on the individual sermon name to open it up on its own separate page the entire new tab is blank

u can use the link for his sermon by Ron Halverson "When Rocks Cry" from http://www.apwin.org the direct link is below

Here is something I'd like you to try.  Edit one of your sermons that isn't working, for example the "When Rocks Cry" sermon with sermon ID 62.  Edit the sermon and choose a date for the sermon.  Then save it, and post back here so I can take another look.

Announcing version 0.45.12

Dear Sermon Browser Administrator I took the sermon you requested "When Rocks Cry" by Pastor Ron Halverson link: http://www.apwin.org/sermons/?.....rmon_id=62 / I choose a date for the sermon and saved it pasted the entire link i a new tab and somehow the sermon is actually visible from the link. On the main Sermon Browser Plugin when I click on every other sermon by clicking on the sermon title to open it in another link the page is blank with just the "AUDIO SERMONS" heading. Does this mean for all my other 700+(plus) sermons I have to add actual dates and re-edit each one. If this is so what may have caused this I have been using this plugin for over 3 years since late 2009 my Christian Resource Center audio sermon tab has over 300,000 visits and I have only run into this issue since I believe the sermon browser plugin update 0.45.10 or I believe 0.45.09. Is there an issue with the concurrent upgrades since 0.45.09 till now that has caused this. I don't have all the exact date's to enter as edits for over 700+(plus) sermons.

 

Or is this issue a problem due to only the sermon id showing and not the page id and the sermon id together with the actual single sermon audio link causing the page to show blank :(

 

**anyone help please thanks for your assistance or input

matrix777,

I don't know why your sermons without dates are not appearing.  I am not able to replicate the problem on my site.  I realize that editing 700 sermons is a lot of work; however, the best option is to do just that, and add dates for each of your sermons.  Sermon Browser wasn't really designed to work with sermons without dates.

 

One option available to you is to install a previous version of Sermon Browser.  All of the previous versions of Sermon Browser are available for download on WordPress.org.  If you can figure out exactly which version is the first one that gives you problems (for example, if you can tell me for sure that 0.45.8 works, but 0.45.9 does not), that would be helpful to me to try to understand why this is happening and possibly find a fix.

Another thing you could do to help: If you could send me a database backup of your website that includes the Sermon Browser tables, that might help me figure out what is causing the problem.  If you know how to obtain a backup of your database and are interested in doing this, let me know and I'll give you my contact information so you can send the backup to me.

Thank you for your suggestion of attempting to edit over 700+ audio files in your plugin however at the present time that will be impossible the link u provided to obtain an older version of the sermon browser plugin was much appreciated...

What are the steps to re-install a previous version of sermon browser I tried in the past but I don't think i followed the right steps and crashed my website before please give me the correct steps to install a previous version I will let you know which previous version removes this issue of "New Tab error: sermon audio files main page completely blank after clicking open or pasting single sermon link"19

Here are two ways to install a previous version of Sermon Browser.  The first way uses FTP, the second is done entirely in the WordPress admin panel.

 

FTP method: Download the .zip file of the version of Sermon Browser you want to install, and unzip.  After you unzip, all the files should be in a folder named "sermon-browser".  FTP in to your web server.  Go to the "wp-content/plugins" folder.  Inside that folder, you'll find the "sermon-browser" folder.  Delete that folder (if you made any modifications to the files after you last updated, you might want to save a backup first).  Then FTP the "sermon-browser" folder from the .zip file into the "wp-content/plugins" folder, replacing the one you deleted.  That's it.  When you go to the Plugins folder in the admin panel, you should see Sermon Browser listed with the version number that you installed.  If you click on the Sermons menu, you should see all of your sermons still there.

 

WordPress admin method: Download the .zip file of the version of Sermon Browser you want to install.  In the WordPress admin, go to Plugins.  Find Sermon Browser in the list, and Deactivate.  Next, find Sermon Browser in the list and click the Delete link.  Confirm the delete.  Next, go to Plugins, Add New.  Click on the "Upload" link at the top of the screen.  Click on Browse, and choose your .zip file.  Then click "Install Now."  After you get the "Plugin installed successfully" message, click on "Activate plugin".  Now you should see Sermon Browser listed with the version number that you installed.  If you click on the Sermons menu, you should see all of your sermons still there.

 

If you have any more questions, please let me know.

Good day Admin of sermonbrowser plugin for wordpress I attempted to follow your directions and reverted first to version 0.45.08 then even further back to 0.45.05 and neither reversion changed the issue of single link page being empty for any of my sermon audio files...so whenever I paste or send a link on a new tab the entire tab is still blank are there any options besides going thru individually over 700 audio sermons to enter specific dates. (1) I dont have exact dates for most of these files and (2) is there a way for the plugin to add a default date to all of them at once or (3) can something be done in the .php to fix this issue I have had this plugin for over 3 years and now have over 300,000 views of the sermons on my site. Can anything be done???

Which version of Sermon Browser is the last version you ran that worked before you updated and started having problems?  None of the recent Sermon Browser versions (within the last couple of years) have made any changes to the database, so rolling back to a previous version that you had run successfully before should have fixed it if it was a new version causing the problems.  It is possible that another plugin you updated is causing problems, or perhaps something in your theme.  I recommend that you make a list of all the plugins you are currently running, then deactivate them all except Sermon Browser and see if your Sermons pages start working.  If so, then you can reactivate your plugins, one at a time, until the problem reappears.  If deactivating your plugins does not help, you could try temporarily switching your theme to one of the default WordPress themes (Twenty Eleven, Twenty Twelve, or Twenty Thirteen), and see if that fixes the problem.

Hi there Ben Miller moderator for Sermon Audio Plugin I HAVE FOUND THE SOLUTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!

apparently my google analytics plugin is causing a conflict with the sermon audio plugin allowing the single link copied and pasted in the web address or the single link for each sermon without a date when clicked on to open in a new tab the page is completely blank with only the heading SERMON AUDIO ...I have deactivated the GOOGLE ANALYTICS plugin as of today not sure if or when I will re-Activate it cause of the conflict its creating. The Sremon Browser is using the most current version and each single link for the audio sermons is visible.

Great!  I'm glad you got it working.

Could you tell me which Google Analytics plugin you were running (who the author is)?  There are a lot of them.

The author of the Goodle Analytics for Wordpress I was using is Joost de Valk version 4.3.3 I have deactivated it for now and one other question I saw a post about but since the Wordpress 3.6 latest update the default most commonly used audio lugin for audio playback had been the aduio plugin using the "short" audio "short" code" but it conflicts witth the built in audio player for the latest updated wordpress what audio plugin still works with Wordpress 3.6 for audio files outside of the sermon audio plugin
