In Topic: WPNT missing verse

Yesterday, 12:29 AM

Thanks Katoog. Both the Commentary and the Bible appear nicely from the wpnt.zip file, when I look at John chapter 1. However, the Information page still shows programming commands <br><br> <a > </a> options. Perhaps that could be corrected.
My e-Sword is set to Default font Verdana; Latin = Doulos SIL; do I need to change this? e-Sword User Guide page 33 
 
Bible - in the Information option, has first section, showing programming commands, as: 
Wilbur Pickering’s New Testament (MAY) (NT) (Layout)
Both the translation and the notes are the responsibility of Wilbur N. Pickering, ThM PhD, being based on his edition of the Greek New Testament, according to the only significant line of transmission, both ancient and independent, that has a demonstrable archetypal form in all 27 books. <br><br>The Greek Text of which this is a translation, and articles explaining the preference, may be downloaded free from <a href=”http://www.walkinhiscommandments.com/>www.walkinhiscommandments.com</a>. <br><br> ...
 
Commentary - in the information option, has first section, showing programming commands, as: 
Wilbur Pickering’s New Testament Footnotes

If this is from the 2016 edition of The Sovereign Creator Has Spoken, Objective Authority for Living, The New Testament with Commentary, Second Edition, by Dr. Wilbur Pickering, ThM, PhD. Copyright © 2016 Wilbur N. Pickering then I suggest you could update http://www.biblesupp...ent-with-notes/ and the files there. The initial files on http://www.biblesupp...ent-with-notes/ were loaded in 2012. Then there was a reload in July 2015.
Your present wpnt.zip file contain two files, which are numbered as 001_wpnt.bbli 2016-08-21 and 001_wpnt.cmti 2018-12-08. If they are updates, they would simply be able to replace the existing files, if you changed the filenames so they do not have the 001_ prefixed to the filename.

JPG: You need to move them to the e-Sword folder. Really there shouldn't be any e-Sword files in the Virtual Store.

Have you many e-Sword files in the Virtual Store folder?

Reply: Anything I download from inside e-Sword is loaded into the <username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (086)\e-Sword folder.  I have reverted to use Resource location: C:\program files (x86)\e-Sword folder Now, although the entries are not in the Resource location, and are in the virtual store, they are all shown as listed inside e-Sword from the e-Sword tab "Options" > "Resource settings" > and relevant section window.  I can click on an entry in the VirtualStore folder, and the Module Installer copies the file to the C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder. If I try to copy and paste files to the destination folder, I have to allow Administrative access to paste to that folder in C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder. 
I'll move all from the virtual store into the resource location, and will remove any old or manually renamed entries. The Module Installer does not move "lexx" dictionary files created by e-Sword. The doré.mapx refuses to move into the Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder; is this because in the name there is a letter character which is not in the English keyboard alphabet? I then deleted the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder. 
RESULT. WPNT John 1:51 is still viewable in Compare option, Viewable in Parallel option, but verse John 1:51 is not viewable from Bible WPNT view. It just gives the verse number, in gold, but no text for the verse.


Joh 1:50 Jesus answered and said to him, “You believe because I said that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater than these.â€38
Joh 1:51

Thanks JPG. I found an entry for William and another for William's (incidentally both are actually spelled wrong, and ought to be Williams's New Testament, according to the Society of Biblical Literature. https://www.sbl-site...ookofStyle.aspx where Rule Changes in the Second Edition of the Society of Biblical Literature, are mentioned. This refers to The SBL Handbook of Style, 2nd edition, 2014. They are an American-based learned society dedicated to the academic study of the Bible and related ancient literature. Following The Chicago Manual of Style, all names form the possessive with an apostrophe s. Jesus’s and Moses’s are not exceptions to this rule (4.1.6). So, a book written by Williams would be Williams's New Testament). I deleted both entries, one was in the Virtual Store, reloaded the Williams NT; and used the Module Installer to copy all entries in Virtual Store into the C:\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder. No change. Still can see WPNT for John 1:51 in the Parallel view, and in the Compare view, but not in the direct view - if the font there is white on white I still cannot see it.

2020-08-02 WPNT still a problem. Am running on Microsoft 64-bit system, Windows 10 Pro, version 2004. The e-Sword files (wpnt.bblx) and (wpnt.cmtx) with the date 2012/04/29 still refuse to delete from inside e-Sword from the C:\Program files (x86)/e-Sword folder, when using e-Sword, Options, Resource settings, deselect all, and right click on the WPNT option to tell the PC to delete the file specific WPNT file.  The PC does NOT delete the file.
I deleted these files, using File Explorer; deleting them from the C:\Program files (x86)\e-Sword folder.
There is no copy of wpnt.bblx or wpnt.cmtx in <username>\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword folder.
Reloaded the files (wpnt.bblx) and (wpnt.cmtx) from wpnt.zip and then loaded the Bibles AFV (which has 52 verses in John chapter 1) and WPNT. In the Bible option, (Ctrl + F2), in the Parallel view, with AFV in the first column, and WPNT in a subsequent column, can view John 1:52 verses in AFV, and in WPNT the verse John 1:51 displays correctly. Am able to scroll upwards correctly. Can select specific verse, correctly. However, when view changed to viewed each Bible independently, then in WPNT the verse John 1:51 still does NOT display in the WPNT file, in the Bible view. 
Please could someone with programming skills, re-open WPNT and check that the formatting for John 1:51 is correct, and re-save the wpnt.bblx and wpnt.cmtx zipped file back to the e-sword BIBLE SUPPORT.
