http://biblia.com/ has been updated to beta 4.

 

Features:

  • All Bibles available on bible.logos.com are now available for free on Biblia.
  • Enable the share menu in non-Bibles, and in the passage view.
  • Added a menu item to the search panel's resource picker for searching both open books.
  • Supports displaying the active headword in the navigation text box (you should see headwords appear in dictionaries, etc)
  • Added an X button to clear text from resource picker filter box.

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed missing resource text from some interlinear texts.
  • Fixed error while switching to a Bible that doesn't contain the reference being viewed in the current Bible.
  • Navigating to a reference now correctly displays that reference in the navigation text box, instead of detecting a nearby reference.
  • Fixed an encoding issue that caused sections of some resources to fail to load while scrolling.

Thanks Bryan.

I was playing around with it, and I started getting "Sorry, an error was encountered while switching resources." when trying to change books in the right-hand pane.  I could still change Bibles on the left side.

I have switched around 6 or so books, all fine.  I did notice, however, that when searching "Encyclopedia of Christianity" I get volumes 1-3 volume, but not vol. 4 (which I own).  That seems odd that rights would not have been given for that, and the title is the same (save for the volume #)

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

EoC vol. 4 doesn't seem to be available on any of the mobile web interfaces.  I bet it's covered under a different blanket license agreement since it came out later. but you'd expect the later agreements to include mobile licensing. It is odd.

BTW, The error I was getting went away when I reloaded the page from scratch.

Other than the free Bibles, Biblia.com supports the same resources as the iPhone. See http://www.logos.com/iphone/support/resourcelist for a list of currently supported resources. We're working with publishers to obtain rights to display resources online, and the list is constantly growing.

I personally can't comment on the status of any particular resource, except to say that if we have permission to use it, we are, and if not, we're working on it =)

I am not able to get the pop-ups in the NAS to provide information. In the shot below I am in Genesis 1:5 and my missing mouse pointer was on the little superscript b when I got the pop-up pictured. Same for the other superscripts letters.

Superscript numbers return:

I tried this in the HCSB and the pop-ups worked fine.

Bryan Smith:
Supports displaying the active headword in the navigation text box (you should see headwords appear in dictionaries, etc)

A feature that is needed is for the navigation box to provide a drop-down list of terms containing the headword specific to that resource.

Example: Eerdman's Dictionary of the Bible. This resource has no entry for 'Genesis'. Typing that produces an error. There are two entries containing the headword Genesis including 'Genesis, book of' which when typed in works just fine. Logos 4 has the desired functionality. Hopefully this can be included at some future time.

Curious as to why it is named Biblia?

I haven't been able to reproduce this, and I don't see any server errors in my logs for it. Is there a particular resource that seems to be doing this for you?

Thanks,

Bryan

I have the same problem plus I get the error message "Sorry, an error was encountered while loading part of the book". This causes IE to stop responding when trying to scroll the right panel. The resource is The Book of Isaiah Vol. 1 by Young.

Other times I am able to switch resources two or three times, then that stops functioning, and I get the error message "Sorry, an error was encountered while switching resources."  The way it is now Biblica is unusable.

Using IE ver.8.

Biblia.com Beta 4.5 =)

The site has been updated with quite a few bug fixes. I believe all of the bugs reported in this thread have been addressed.

Please let me know if you continue seeing the same problems.

Thanks!

Bryan

Thanks Robert. The error loading the book has been resolved, but I think I've found something else that may cause IE to stop responding. I'll continue work on this & hopefully I'll have an update for you next week =)
