Visual Bible Verse of the Day Widget


The Visual Bible Verse of the Day inspires people through God’s Word and His creation. Each day a new thumbnail photograph combined with a Scripture reference appear in a widget area on a site using the plugin. You control the size and widget area the verse and scripture reference appear. When someone clicks on the thumbnail they get the full image and verse.

The images come from the outstanding wildlife and landscape photography collection of award-winning outdoor photographer Pasquale R Mingarelli. The Visual Verse of the Day makes a great addition to any Christian website or any site that wants to daily inspire its site visitors.

Pasquale is also a Christian speaker. He speaks on how nature touches us through its majesty, mystery and beauty.
His presentations help us to see how nature reveals the glory of God and His attributes. You can view his website here:

  1. Find the plugin in the WordPress plugin gallery and click “Install Now”.
  2. In the WordPress dashboard, go to Appearance > Widgets.
  3. Find the new Visual Verse of the Day widget and click on it.
  4. Choose the desired widget area and click “Add Widget”.
  5. Find the list of widgets for that widget area and drag them into the desired order.


What is the “width” setting for?

If you don’t want the widget to be the full width of the widget area, set a width in CSS style (like 200px; or 80%;).

Can I style it more?

Sure, find and edit the file wp-content/plugins/vv-widget/css/vv-widget-styles.css.
