bib.ly – Bible reference links to all bible sites

Description

Finds Bible references, creates a popup with the Biblical text and links users to a page where they choose their favorite website (YouVersion, BibleGateway).

Check out bib.ly for more information.

How does it work?

bib.ly will find all Bible refences on your site like Mark 5:13 and 2 Cor. 5:17 and convert them to links to the bib.ly website (e.g. Mark 5:13 and 2 Cor. 5:17 ) as well as show the Biblical text on a hover card.

What happens next?

When users hovers over a link, they’ll see the text in a popup. If they click the link, they’ll be taken to a site that let’s them pick their favorite Bible site (YouVersion, BibleGateway, etc.)

Future plans?

We’ll add more Bible versions for the popups soon.
