Bible Integration?
« on: June 06, 2013, 09:26:14 AM »
Issue Summary
Is there any possibility that anyone could work on integrating a Bible module or two, or creating a custom one to integrate with this distribution? I'm just wondering, b/c I have run into issue after issue using other Bible modules.

Currently, the "Drupal Bible" module gives some of the best results, in my opinion, though not everything seems to work - at least in my experience - to the way it's described. And there is one thing missing from it which I have been trying to find with other modules, which would be nice if it all just worked in one module... or else in this one distrubution.

That one thing that the "Drupal Bible" module doesn't seem to do is give a way to include a "Bible Field" where you can attach Bible passages as fields to any content type you wish. For now, I'm using "Bible Field" for that, and it mostly works fine, but I'd prefer a few differences. Those are:
1. Correct spelling of book names, since it's static to the module, not user-editable - this is likely an easy fix if they are currently maintaining it.
2. Instead of linking to an external source, link any verse/passage to the Bible text onsite which is currently loaded/installed by the Drupal Bible module.
3. (this is something I've done in an Access Database I built for use at my church, but have no clue as to how to do in Drupal) - When selecting a passage... have each chapter/verse drop-down be filtered to only allow for numbers that are possible for that book/chapter/verse combination. - This of course would be farther down the list as far as priorities, I think, but would be nice.

Forgive me if this has already been discussed. I didn't see any such mentions listed at a glance.
