Are the 3.0 Lifeworks home pages no longer available in 4?

The reason that I'm asking, is specifically for the links to the Lifeworks audio and video files.

Audio and video files are still in the works for L4.

Libronix style homepages will not be brought into L4.

We'll have to see if it will be possible for these companies to develop a mini-resource that would work like an index for collections like this one (I have a John Piper and a Max Lucado collection), or if collections will be sufficient, maybe a "Reading List" type of document could work. Right now, we don't have anything to play with to even begin to answer the question on how to make the most and best use of these media collections.

For now, we can just wait and imagine the possibilities.

Paul, there are NO author/product/company home pages in L4 that we used to in L3.

As to the audio and video which we accessed from those pages, Bob says this will eventually be dealt with and added back into L4.

In the meantime, to access my Lucado tapes etc, I must still use L3.

Regards

Steve

It would be really neat if they were presented in a sort of mini library / collection (not to over use the word).

Where you would type an author's (or publication's) name, and are present with a high level index that lets you choose what your looking for, like:

1. Titles by subject, bible book, topic, event, etc...

2. Media (also grouped by subject)

3. A particular series

4. Author's writing that reference the current Bible passage

5. Etc...

 

I could definitely live comfortably with something like this.

I agree. But for now, we can't develop resources for L4, not even PBB's at this point. But it's possible a collection, or a reading list would be adequate.

It would be really nice if the publishers would produce an index resource for these collections that would work like their old home pages in L3, but the most we could do is ask, and there is no financial incentive for them to do so (except good-will translated to possible future sales).

Like I said, for now, we'll have to wait and see what's possible, and what will work.

One more great feature would be the ability to add indexed MP3s/MP4s to the new Sermon File tool.
