I'm attempting to use one of the many available sermon plugins for WordPress.

At this point I'm looking at Sermon Browser, Sermon Posts and Sermon Manager.

The later two require that I create page templates in order for them to display properly, but the Touch of Soul theme is much more complex than anything I've looked at in the past. Is there a generic page template for this theme that I can modify?

Because of the amount of custom programming I had to do to make the Wordpress themes capable of doing (almost) everything the Joomla versions can do, there is currently no generic page template or plan for one.  However, I may be able to give you some pointers or even a little help.

Feel free to PM me information about the site you're working on and I'll take a look & see what I can figure out for you.

If you can provide links to the plugins you're looking at, I'll be glad to take a look at how they are implemented & see if there's a way to make an easy tweak to the theme rather than a complete overhaul.

I'm currently looking at using Sermon Manager (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/sermon-manager-for-wordpress/).

You can have a look at the current site I am working on here (http://www.efcbnj.org/v2/).

Here are some links to the pages the plugin creates so you can see what is going on:

1. Single Sermon Page - http://efcbnj.org/v2/sermon/when-life-comes-undone/
2. Sermon Series Page - http://efcbnj.org/v2/sermon-series/waiting/
3. List of All Sermons Page - http://efcbnj.org/v2/sermons/
4. Sermons by Preacher Page - http://efcbnj.org/v2/preacher/jack-kroeze/

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the links; the plugin doesn't seem to have much documentation, so I'm going to look through the code over the weekend and see what I can figure out for you.

Yes...  Sorry about the delay.  Holiday activities threw off my schedule a little.

It looks like the "page templates" are mostly unnecessary but may have some elements that are needed.  Are you sure that the plugin doesn't have a "shortcode" that you can just paste into a page?

If you would like, I can take a look at your site & see what I can do to make it fit; I'll just need for you to PM me login and/or FTP access information (You can create a new login if you would like, but I'll need admin-level access to do anything).

WARNING!: Do Not post site login details on an open board, always send through PM.

Not a problem. I wasn't expecting any real progress until after the new year.

Unfortunately the plugin does not have a short code at this point (at least not that I can see).

I'll send you a PM in a bit with the login information to take a look at the site.
