Have it your way

:-)

Now you can change your translation and start date.

Logos can only generate reading plans at a max of 1500 sessions. That limits me to building a four year plan. Perhaps in 4 years, L7( or L8) will be able to do it's own Grant Horner plan. So this should carry you to that point.

365 days a year for four years (ignoring leap years for my sake) is 1460 sessions. I'm going to try and generate somewhere between 1460 and 1500 sessions so that this is a true four year plus setup. The only place this fails is with the gospels in list 01, that breaks at 1424 days instead because one more full iteration would be 1513, just a smidge too long.

The way the plan breaks down means it will be a ragged edge because the same chapters virtually never terminate on the same date.


To start with I created a reading plan for each of the ten lists and made the individual list repeat a minimum of four years; while breaking at the chapter divisions. 

Once completed in 1-10 format I uploaded those lists into a the reading group so you can
1. Download them
2. Change the Bible version
3. Change your start date.
4. Regenerate the plan.
5. Then, create one master reading plan (as a CUSTOM reading plan)
6. One by one add Lists 01-10 to the first day of the reading plan.

After this you may feel free to delete the List plans and just keep the master custom plan you have created.

If you really want to push the boundaries. Find the end date of List 01 and add List 01 again at that date.  Do that for all 10 lists and your four year plan is now 8. Do it as many times as you can before Logos locks up. Surprise No I did not try this beyond a second cycle.

Below are the calculations and the text strings of the individual plans in case you want to skip my work and do it yourself.

1460 Days = 4 Years

The following is (Iterations * Chapters = Sessions)

TCBlack:

Easier than that Andrew.  If I upload the individual lists for a four year cycle you can set the version for it, regenerate and then add them all to a custom plan. No?

Good call!

TCBlack:

Generated reading plans max out at 1500 sessions, just over four years.

Huh... I had no idea. I went looking through the code and discovered the limitation along with a comment indicating that larger plans can cause performance problems.

TCBlack:

I'm getting some strange behavior though where the plans break for a day every 10 days.

To the best of my knowledge, that should only happen if you have more reading sessions than chapters. If you find a specific situation where this is not the case, I'll take a look at it.

This is great! Thank you so much for taking the time to bless others. 

I have a few questions/ problems that might be beneficial to raise! 

  1. Am I right in thinking that in order to change the bible version AND the dates I have to create a duplicate copy of each reading plan from the Faithlife group? Using the version that you created doesn't seem to allow me to change the dates (they are fixed at Jan 1 2015). However, a duplicate copy will allow you change pretty much anything (when it doesn't cause a crash!).
  2. However, is necessary to change the dates in all the plans? Do you not select the starting date when creating the custom plan?
  3. When I have created a duplicate copy of the plans and made the changes to the dates, the plan gets messed up, leaving gaps every four/five days. 

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if this is some kind of bug.

List 03 (19 * 78 = 1482) Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians, Romans-Colossians

I've just discovered that the file for this plan in the Faithlife group is actually set up to read All Passages! However, I have tried changing it in a duplicate copy but still get the gap every 4/5 days.

Got it!

The number of iterations * chapters is incorrect for Rom-Col. It should be 23 * 65 = 1495

Er...no. I was wrong. It wasn't the iterations * chapters that was incorrect, it's that it didn't include Hebrews!!  List three should be...

List 03 (19 * 78 = 1482) Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb, Rom-Col, Heb

Ah, thanks Richard! Um, I can't fix it at the moment so if you don't already have it uploaded by the time I get to it, I'll upload a fixed version.

There does not appear to be a way to delete documents once they are on faithlife.  There's a bad List 04, and the bad List 03 up there.

I am trying to set this up and it is not working for some reason. As you can see from the screen shot, it appears as if the range is not repeating. Can anyone help me with this?

Okay, maybe I figured it out. Do I actually have to type "Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy, Genesis-Deuteronomy" into the range box rather than just "Genesis-Deuteronomy"? I assumed it would just automatically repeat.

yes, there are no automatic repeats

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

MJ is correct. No automatic repeats, and unfortunately no real way to make a perfect match for Horner's overlapping plan.  After several iterations you just have to restart.  

I'd love to see this programmed in as a built in plan, but this is the best I could come up with.
