Sermons Template

Overview

Sermons Layout 2 was designed to display your sermons in reverse chronological order (newest first). This page has 2 columns. In the larger column on the left, there are filtering options at the top so the user can find the sermon(s) they are looking for. Below that, the Sermon images, date, titles, key passage & categories of the 5 most recent sermons are displayed. Above and below these 5 sermons is pagination, which allows users to see older sermons. In the smaller right column there is a link to the sermons XML feed so users can subscribe to the feed directly.

To utilize this Sermon Template, you will first need to make sure that you have a navigation item in the Navigation Module (CONTENT > Pages > Navigation) that is linked to the "All Sermons" option in the "Content" field. See the screenshots below for how to assign the navigation item correctly:
