Bible Links in selfmade Module

Posted: Sat Oct 31, 2020 11:21 am
I made two Modules just to try it out. So far it worked.
1. bible module : letter of Jude from a german Translation
2. commentary module : The footnotes to this letter of Jude

My questions:
1. How do I put bible verses into the commentary?
I put <a href="bible://2Pe 1:10</a> , but that did not work.
When I go over this Verse (2Pe 1:10)
A window opens with: "This reference is not found in this Bible"

2. What is the link in the Bible Module to see the footnote (from my own Commentary Module) when I go over this footnote number

3. The headline of the commentary reads: "Fußnoten zum Judasbrief NT Manfred Roth - Jud 1:1">Jud 1:1" (see added picture)

When I go over the first Verse link it says at the first "Jud 1:1": "This reference is not found in this Bible"
When I go over the second Verse link it shows the verse of Judges 1:1 not Jude 1:1


Thanks for your answer

The ref links must be like this,
<a href="bible://2Pe 1:10">Visible reference goes here, 2 Peter 1:10</a>

You can't build a Bible module that will link to a commentary with the built in Module Creator, sorry.

The ref link at the top got corrupted somehow and was broken when displayed. Try fixing your links to the format above.

Thank you very much Tim for your quick answer!

Another question
Is it possible to put a link in the commentary to another place (a footnote under a certain verse) in the same commentary?

I changed the links according to your format. After the change, not on purpose, I made first a bible Modul and then a commentary module.
In the bible module, the links work; in the commentary module only one link works, the one, where I put the englisch vers-format ( 2 Corinthians 5:16 instead of 2. Korinther 5,16 = the german format)

Maybe you can look at the file.

Thanks and blessings

Actually, you can because I've done it before.

First though, I did a quick look at your file and I noticed links like:
<a href="bible://1Co 14:2.4.15-16"> 1. Korinther 14,2.4.15-16</a>

The Bible references have to use the notation that BA recognizes. For instance, in the "href" attribute you used "bible://1Co 14:2.4.15-16" but BA doesn't recognize the periods (".") in the Bible reference. Actually, as a human I'm not able to figure out for sure what Bible reference is intended here. However, each link can only refer to a single range of contiguous verses (a single verse or a range of verses within the same chapter).

To create a link in a commentary to another entry in the same commentary you would use something like this (I'm assuming that your commentary's abbreviated name is "Judas"):
<a href="comm/Judas://Jud 1:1">See this entry</a>

This should create a link displayed as "See this entry" that refers to your commentary's entry for Jude 1.

Hopefully that helps and didn't muddy the waters...

Thank you verry much for your answer, Robert!

Another question:

Is it possible to put links to strongsnumbers inside of a commentary module?

Here you go:

<a href="stng/G3390">μητρόπολις</a>

I copied this from one of the Strong's dictionary modules where it was referencing another entry. Just substitute whatever Strong's number you need for "G3390" and the text inside the <a></a> HTML tag (in this case "μητρόπολις") can be whatever you want to appear displayed in your module.

Hope that helps!
