Spurgeon was a prolific author of many types of works including sermons, an autobiography, commentaries, books on prayer, devotionals, magazines, poetry, hymns and more. Many sermons were transcribed as he spoke and were translated into many languages during his lifetime. Spurgeon produced powerful sermons of penetrating thought and precise exposition. His oratory skills held throngs of listeners spellbound in the Metropolitan Tabernacle and many Christians have discovered Spurgeon's messages to be among the best in Christian literature.
It is my delight and pleasure to share with you Spurgeon's messages on the Joomla! CMS in the form of Exensions.
Currently there are two completed Spurgeon extensions. They are:
- Morning & Evening
- Faith Checkbook
Both Joomla extensions are of the type: Joomla Component. They are not complicated, require very little administration and are practically Plug N Play There's No Dismay. Delightful to use.
In development, there are two more Spurgeon extensions lined up. Both these in-development extensions will be of the type: Joomla Module.
- Spurgeon ThriceDaily (tentatively named, suggestions needed)
- Spurgeon ReadMore
Spurgeon ThriceDaily is a module that combines Spurgeon's Morning & Evening with Faith Checkbook. There is greater flexibility in using the module compared to a component. The second module is an extension-specific kind, meaning it requires the first module to be installed. Basically it functions as a "read more" by pulling first few lines of the current devotion article and it works from a box where you can position at frontpage or any other pages. You probably have noticed it on the side-bar as a glimpse of what to expect.
Work is very much at the half-way mark. I am not a very accomplished PHP programmer or Joomla developer, so I would take longer time. Expected completion was initially targetted end of October but I'm now trying my best to negotiate out of a dead-end that I did not know how I got into it in the first place. Lots of back-pedalling to do.
