I gratefully used two WordPress plug-ins:
- For footnotes: Manfisher footnotes
- For Bible references: ScriptTagger
The plug-in automatically makes a link of every recognizable reference. Also when the text is cited in the article; then it may be redundant, but that is how the plug-in works…
It will give you the New King James Version. Up to 7 verses – with a ‘More »’ link.
