How to use the WordPress plugin

To make integrating Church Social with your new WordPress website really easy, we have created an official WordPress plugin. This plugin allows you to display calendar events and sermons on your website. 

Public content only

Note that the plugin will not display birthdays or anniversaries from your Church Social calendar, but instead only events that have been marked as "public" will be shown. In the same way, only sermons with public formats will be shown.

Enabling the Plugin

To connect the WordPress Plugin with your Church Social account you'll need to enter the API key that you can find in Church Social Settings in the API Section

Customizing

You can change which pages the calendar and sermon archive appear on in the WordPress control panel under "Settings", then "Church Social". If you are using one of our WordPress themes we recommend leaving the "Theme" option blank. However, if you are using a 3rd party theme, this setting can help improve the design of the calendar and sermon archive.

This plugin also comes with two WordPress widgets, which you can use to display upcoming events and recent sermons in your sidebar or other widget areas.
