Recently I purchased Flannery's Vatican II collection from Logos. It is a great resource. Unfortunately, other Verbum/Logos resources don't link to Flannery's collection. One solution would be to "fix" Flannery. But then I realized that there already is a better - and easier - solution. Redo Flannery.

So, my suggestion is that Verbum put out an updated Vatican II Collection, using Flannery as a model. Have the sixteen conciliar documents and all the major Church documents since then under each of those sixteen categories, right up to the present day. The beauty of this solution is that Verbum already has most of these documents offered in other collections. Very little work would be required on their end! All the links would be there already! It could be like a "greatest hits" collection (so to speak) for those who can't afford to buy all the collections of official documents now offered. And, what a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Council!

Did you try to fix the linking into Flannery by making it a higher priority than the Logos VII book?
I do not know if that would work, but should be easy to try...

I like the Flannery VII translation, I have it in paperback from a few years ago.

Good suggestion. I'll try it. However, I wasn't thinking so much of the Vatican II documents in Flannery; I was thinking of other Church documents. For example, there is a reference in canon 602 of the 1983 Code of Canon law to the document Venite Seorsum, which is in Flannery. However, the link doesn't take me to Flannery. It simply lists the official reference. And there are many other documents in Flannery like this. 

I'll see if changing the priority or doing anything else will affect this.
