Bible Reference Taggers

From CATUG wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

You have probably visited at least one site which had Bible verse references that looked like links. When you hover over the reference a tooltip pops up with the content of the verse or verses.

So far I have found five different Bible Reference Taggers that can be added to your own web pages or your entire web site. It is all done with a line or two or three of Javascript. When a page with this JavaScript loads, the script will turn all Bible references on a page into links that put up a tooltip with the verses specified.

Available taggers

Blue Letter Bible

http://www.blueletterbible.org/freeoffer/BLB_ScriptTagger/

Add the following right before </head> tag:

<!-- Blue Letter Bible Tagger -->
<script src="http://www.blueletterbible.org/scripts/blbToolTip/BLB_ScriptTagger-min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">BLB.Tagger.Translation = 'KJV';</script>

This is the Tagger I have added to my personal wiki, by modifying skins/Monobook.php. I have also added this tagger to one of the books on my site: Abide In Christ (Andrew Murray)

MediaWiki extension for BLB_ScriptTagger

I have just finished writing an extension for MediaWiki which will add the <script> tags to any wiki page you choose. Once the extension is installed, you can invoke it on any page by simply adding

<blbtagger />

anywhere on the page.

If you choose, you can also add options to choose the translation (NIV, NASB, KJV, et cetera), and more.

Anyone interested in getting a copy of this extension, visit MediaWiki Extension for BLB Script Tagger.
