My tutorial comes from Create Smart Playlists to find which of your songs are Apple Music, in the cloud, and more only my tutorial uses a more step-by-step approach.

Intro

Ever wonder where your music gets stored whether you’re subscribed to iTunes match or apple music?  If you’re subscribed to iTunes match, it will attempt to match all the songs you currently own with songs available on the iTunes Store, the rest are uploaded to your iCloud music library the original songs stay where they are.  The same goes for Apple Music except for the songs you own are matched with songs in the Apple Music library, the only caveat with having just Apple music once you download those songs which you add to your library a little thing called DRM(digital rights management) is added so you don’t willy-nilly run off and use the songs.  To differentiate between the two I’m going to show you how to create smart playlists for iTunes match and Apple music respectively.

How to use The LDS Scripture Linker with WordPress

How to use spotify to create a playlist

Intro

Ever wanted to reference any LDS scriptures in your blog that you want to study further?  Ever wanted to reference any LDS scriptures to correlate with what you say in your blog?  Have I got a wordpress plugin for you.  It’s called the LDS Scripture Linker and it essentially converts any scripture reference you put on your blog into links to said scripture references which will be highlighted when the link is clicked.  I’m going to layout how to use the plugin and then at the end I will demonstrate how to use it.

Tutorial Requirements

  • A wordpress blogmywordpressblog and
  • The LDSScriptureLinker plugin

Instructions

  1. Make sure the LDS Scripture Linker is installed and activated.
  2. Configure or set up the plugin to suit your needs.  I set the plugin up like this:Linkersetup1Linkersetup2
  3. Choose a current event or a holiday in which you can reference your favorite story.
  4. Now comes the cool part write a blog post and include your scripture reference.

Demonstration and Conclusion

Here are a few examples of stories in LDS scripture including the Bible that correlate with some of our holidays:

  1. Independence Day:  Alma 46:12-16
  2. Christmas: 3 Nephi 1:15, Luke 2:7
  3. Easter: Luke 24:4-6, 3 Nephi 11:7-11

And there you have it a way to reference scriptures that correlate with whatever you can think of.
