Select an appropriate text:
- Download all of the formats that the book is distributed in, that is available on that site;
- Do a search on each of the following using the resource name and e-Sword as the key words:
- If there are no hits on the material as an e-Sword resource, then post a notice that you are going to convert the PDF to e-Sword format at the Modules in Progress sub-forum ( http://www.biblesupp...es-in-progress/ );
- Wait 72 hours, and if no response, then start working on the resource, making periodic replies to your original post about the status of your progress;
- If there hits on the material as an e-Sword resource, download the resource, and examine the following:
- Is the content identical to the original material;
- Does the presentation markup conform to current standards;
- If the answer to either of those is "no", then either create the resource from scratch, or fix the currently available resource. (in most instances, it is easier to create a resource from scratch, then fix an existing resource.);
- Make an announcement at the Modules in Progress sub-forum ( http://www.biblesupp...es-in-progress/ ) that you are fixing the resource;
Some other possibilities are described in various threads on the old e-Sword-users.org website, in the Other Bible Software
), The Tea Room
), and Feature Requests / Wishlist / Coming Attractions
) sub forums.
