FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


1 - Does this mod support subsilver?
Yes. The subsilver2 instructions are in the "contrib" folder of the download.


2 - How do I restrict access to the Bible page to logged-in members only?
Open: root/bible.php

Find:

Code: Select all

// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();
After Add:

Code: Select all

if ($user->data['user_id'] == ANONYMOUS)
{
    login_box('', $user->lang['LOGIN']);
} 

3 - How do I make the "Bible" link in the overall_header viewable to logged-in members only?

Open: root/styles/prosilver/template/overall_header.html

Find:

Code: Select all

			<!-- SIMPLE ONLINE BIBLE MOD BEGIN -->
				<li class="icon-pages"><a href="{U_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK}" title="{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK_EXPLAIN}">{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK}</a></li>
				<!-- SIMPLE ONLINE BIBLE MOD END -->
Replace With:

Code: Select all

				
				<!-- SIMPLE ONLINE BIBLE MOD BEGIN -->
				<!-- IF S_USER_LOGGED_IN -->
				<li class="icon-pages"><a href="{U_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK}" title="{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK_EXPLAIN}">{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_LINK}</a></li>
				<!-- ENDIF -->
				<!-- SIMPLE ONLINE BIBLE MOD END -->

4 - Can I remove the links that are applied to the Bible page?
No. Removing the links will violate the terms of use.

Find:

Code: Select all

Replace With:

Code: Select all

<br /><p class="sobmcenter"><a href="{U_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_INFO}" target="_blank">{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_INFO}</a> <a href="{U_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_INFO}" target="_blank">{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_VERSION}</a> | <a href="{U_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_CREDIT}" target="_blank">{L_SIMPLE_ONLINE_BIBLE_MOD_CREDIT}</a></p>

I would... But the swf script wasn't written by me - so the colors of the Bible script are off. The "page" is prosilver though :)

I was thinking that but I wasn't sure.

For the record, I post that in all of the FAQ's of my mods.

And thanks ;)

Why? What's wrong with restricting a feature to logged in members only?

Just a heads-up... If anyone want an Online Audio Bible, view my Simple Audio Player Mod topic. In the first post of the topic I posted the Bible audio files. Simply use the Simple Audio Player Mod with the audio files ;)

Hey Keith,

I found this mod though a link in your sig. I was wondering, what versions of the bible are supported for this mod? I really don't want to restrict readings to only one version. I myself like to read the NASB, NIV and ESV, depending on what I am reading and how in depth I want to go with it.
Always use the Support Board for phpBB support. One PM answers one. One post answers many.
