this is probably a really stupid question...

Okay, so I have the plugin installed, sermons uploaded with dates, preacher, tags and all that (I can see it all on my wordpress dashboard)...but now where on the church website does it all show up?  I have a page on the site called "Sermons," but when I go to it it is blank.  How do I get the sermon browser search filter and a list of all our sermons to show up on that page, or any page really?  I'm sure the answer relates to the following message:  


Hint: Create a page that includes the shortcode , so that SermonBrowser knows where to display the sermons on your site. 


...but I don't know what that means, and when I click on the "create a page," it takes me to a new page on the site that just says: 


This is somewhat embarrassing, isn’t it?

It seems we can’t find what you’re looking for. Perhaps searching, or one of the links below, can help.


I feel as though I'm very close here.  Any help would be much appreciated!

Tony, it does sound like you are close.  Here is what you need to do.  Edit your Page titled "Sermons." (To do this, in the WordPress control panel by click on "Pages", and then find "Sermons" in the list of Pages and click "Edit.")

On the "Sermons" Page, enter the following text:

(left square bracket)sermons(right square bracket)

(Note: the forum is not letting me enter square brackets here.  So instead of (left square bracket) and (right square bracket), use the square bracket keys on your keyboard.)

That's it.  Get rid of any other text on the page.  While you are in there, you might want to scroll down to the "Discussion" section and uncheck the boxes to get rid of the comment form on this page.

After you've done that, click on the "Update" button in the upper right corner of the screen.

When you've done that, you should see your sermons here:

If not, or you have any other questions, let us know here.
