Would anyone happen to have, or know where I could download, a "docx" index of all of John Bunyan's writings that has already been hyperlinked to open up each item in Logos?

I'd like to upload one into Logos as a PBB.

 

Thanks,

Derek

Why not make one yourself.  I'm doing an index for the Journal of Hebrew Scriptures journals -- except that the reviews section won't function until they resolve the offset problem.

Hi George,

1) I have not yet taken on the learning curve to understand how to hyperlink to logos resources

2) I didn't want to duplicate efforts if someone had already created one and wouldn't mind sharing

Thanks,

Derek

There isn't too much of a learning curve.  At first I was trying to make it harder than it really is.  The structure of the link is [description of link >> URL (or WIKI]].  You find the URL or WIKI by setting the "Copy location" in the "book cover" dropdown to one or the other using <ctrl-alt-c> to capture the link then place that in the link in your Word docx file.  Save the file, select "Personal Books" from the "Tools" section, add book, insert the information, and build the book.  That's it.

Not sure what your goal is here. Do you just want an easy way to access all resources by Bunyan? If so, you can create a collection defined as author:bunyan, and this would be far more useful throughout Logos.

Otherwise, the easiest (and I mean easiest in a relative fashion) is to access the sqlite3 database and pull out the resources by Bunyan. The link is very easy. It's a standard HTML <a> link as follows:

<a href="logosres:RESOURCE">Title of Resource</a>

Where RESOURCE is the internal logos name for the work. On a Mac, the attached script works, assuming you have sqlite3 installed. Sorry it couldn't be friendler...

6825.logosAuthorIndex.txt

 

When you run the script, the output is an html file in the current directory that is named whatever author your are searching for. For example, to generate an HTML index for John Bunyan, run it as

logosAuthorIndex Bunyan

This will create the file Bunyan.html in your current directory. The HTML file can be easily imported into Word.

If you have Bunyan's works, then the index file should look like the attached file, which I suppose you could use instead of generating one yourself.0550.Bunyan.html

Thanks Richard, that was what I was looking for.
