Hi Everyone,

We are trying to post some commentary books online so that the bible links popup such as in reftaggers. But the language will be for the german bible does anybody know of a different program that will allow us to do this?

Cheers, Jeff

Reftagger from Logos won't work with German? I've never tried it, obviously.

 

For now, just to get you started, you could download their jquery source files to see how they do it in English. You could build on that concept.

 

But if I were you--if I were building an online Bible study website, I would not rely on third party scripts. I would build my own so it links to the Bible on my website. Being self contained counts for a lot because it eliminates the possibility of a third party changing something, causing your website not to work properly.

 

I also wouldn't use antiquated technology like CGI scripts or whatever else is out there out of the box. I would use PHP, Jquery and a MySql database. :)  How's that for unsolicited advice. ;)

Thanks Josh, That's fantastic unsolicited info....(-' But we're just trying to do a simple Web page. the girls have translated many different commentaries that we have in English to accommodate some people that they are discipling in Germany an around the world and I was hoping to just pop those very quickly on to the website and be able to have the option for the readers to access the Bible links fairly quickly... Unfortunately we are not to script savvy in that way to be able to build those kind of sites. But logos does have several different translations of the Bible but we didn't see any other in other languages, just hoping to find a simplex way to do it without too much hassle..... Appreciate the answer sure sounds like you understand what we're going for. Have a great day Cheers Jeff.

I see, I mistunderstood what you were trying to do.

 

Logos Reftagger is perfect for your situation. I thought you were wanting to make a Bible app type of website viewable through the browser.

 

Logos seems to have a German Bible you can use, Luther Bibel (1912).

 

The Logos abbreviation for the Luther Bibel of 1912 seems to be "lu1912". That abbreviation would go in place of ESV in the Reftagger script reference. IF it works--you may only be able to use the abbreviations shown here.

 

It's worth a shot.

Their default Reftagger code is:

 

<!-- RefTagger from Logos. Visit http://www.logos.com/reftagger. This code should appear directly before the </body> tag. -->
<script src="http://bible.logos.com/jsapi/referencetagging.js" type="text/javascript"> </script> 
<script type="text/javascript">
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsBibleVersion = "ESV";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsLinksOpenNewWindow = true;
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsLogosLinkIcon = "dark";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsNoSearchTagNames = [ "h2", "h3", "h3" ];
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsTargetSite = "biblia";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.tag();
</script>

 

You would try this, with LU1912 in place of ESV.

 

<!-- RefTagger from Logos. Visit http://www.logos.com/reftagger. This code should appear directly before the </body> tag. -->
<script src="http://bible.logos.com/jsapi/referencetagging.js" type="text/javascript"> </script> 
<script type="text/javascript">
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsBibleVersion = "LU1912";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsLinksOpenNewWindow = true;
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsLogosLinkIcon = "dark";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsNoSearchTagNames = [ "h2", "h3", "h3" ];
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.lbsTargetSite = "biblia";
     Logos.ReferenceTagging.tag();
</script>

I wrote a program in javascript and also saved a Spanish bible in a database and it does the same as reftagger does but I have concerns about using a bible version without permission from bible society or someone else. Do a need any permission from someone for displaying verses on a website?

Yes, I think permission would be necessary for copyrighted translations.

Hi Josh:

 I wonder if I can use some kind of ref taggers or any other program for an e book. I am writing on the beatitudes and I would like to make an e book that people could see all the biblical references about the topic. How can I do that for an e book? I know very little about computers. I haven't finished yet, I have already a year with this project. Thus, I have time to think about something.

 

Thank you

Beatriz
