Biblefox for WordPress

Description

Turns your WordPress site into an online Bible study tool. Creates a Bible index for your WordPress site, allowing your users to easily search your blog posts (or BuddyPress activities, when using BuddyPress) for any Bible reference. Use it for WordPress sites that involve a lot of discussion of the Bible.

For instance, if a user searches your site for ‘Genesis 2’, they will find posts that not only contain the string ‘Genesis 2’, but also other equivalent strings like ‘Gen 2’, or other references that intersect Genesis 2 like ‘Gen 1-3’.

A Bible Directory page is also added to sites using BuddyPress. This directory allows users to read any Bible passage and view all of the activities that reference that passage. Your Bible Directory has the url: http://yoursite.com/bible/

Other Features:
* Bible references automatically become links with a tooltip that gives quick access to the Scripture
* Adds a post meta box that displays the Bible text while writing a blog post

Installation

You can download and install Biblefox using the built in WordPress plugin installer. If you download Biblefox manually, make sure it is uploaded to “/wp-content/plugins/”.

Activate Biblefox in the “Plugins” admin panel using the “Activate” link.

You will need to refresh your Bible index in the Biblefox setting page. This updates the Bible index for all of your current posts. While Biblefox is active, new posts will automatically be indexed.

For BuddyPress sites, you should also add support to your menus for the Bible Directory by adding a link. Your Bible Directory has the url: http://yoursite.com/bible/

Does Biblefox install any database tables?

Yes. Biblefox creates tables for storing the Bible references in each post. For a blog, the table is usually ‘wp_posts_bfox_refs’ (ie. “{$wpdb->posts}_bfox_refs”) and for BuddyPress activities it is ‘wp_bp_activity_bfox_refs’. These tables have a column for a post_id, and 2 columns to store the start and end verses for any Bible reference in the post.
