Bible SuperSearch 2.7.0 has been released. Features added in this release: Strong’s numbers (King James Version) Displaying Searching Italicization of added words (KJV and Reina Valera Gómez) Words of Christ in Red (KJV and RVG) Strong’s number support has been included in the unreleased ‘Pro’ (3.0) version for years. It is now released and available for everyone. This includes inline Strong’s numbers in the text, indicating the root word from which the text was translated. Hovering over a number will display it’s definition in a dialog. Clicking on the number will search the Bible for it. In addition, you can search for Strong’s numbers in any search query. Example: Search for faith G3551. The Strong’s numbers display can be toggled on and off. Italicization (also previously included in ‘Pro’), and Red Letter can also be toggled on and off. You can now have all of these advanced Bible search features on your website. Download Here
This release adds several interfaces to the new client. Some have been migrated from the legacy software, but we have also added a set of minimal interfaces. This release also fixes several bugs and formatting issues.
A few users have expressed concern about our new software, especially since it relies on our API. We believe our new client software is very easy to install. It’s also able to be used on websites not equipped with PHP and / or MySQL. So it is more usable than our legacy software. That being said, the client software runs off of our API located at api.biblesupersearch.com. Unlike our legacy software, it does not run completely on your website. We will soon release the code for our API, bundled with our client. This bundle will allow running the current version of the software completely on your site. Please see our downloads page. For those who have concerns about using our client software, you may continue to use the legacy software as we’re still supporting it with bug fixes for now. (However, it is not supported in PHP 7 or above.) We are also in the process of adding several more skins to the software.
The API (v 2.5) is now ready to use. See it’s full documentation at https://api.biblesupersearch.com/ This API contains all of the functionality of the current (2.x) release. A future 4.0 release of the API will add much more functionality
Please note, that if you are trying to run Bible SuperSearch on PHP 7, it will not work. Bible SuperSearch uses the old PHP mysql extension, which is removed in PHP 7. We are currently developing Bible SuperSearch 4.0, which will support PHP 7.
If you are seeing this, you are on the new Bible SuperSearch website. We are pleased to announce that our website has been rebuilt from the ground up with clean code and a modern design. This has been done in preparation for work on Bible SuperSearch 4.0, which itself will be rebuild from the ground up with clean code and a modern design. As for Bible SuperSearch 4.0, we are still in the planning stages. We will have to decide which PHP framework to use.
We are pleased to announce the beginning of development of Bible SuperSearch version 4.0. This is still in the planning stages, but will include all of the functionality of the current (2.x) release and most of the features of the unreleased ‘Pro’ (3.0) version. This will be a complete rebuild and rewrite of the software from the database up, with full optimization. It will be built as a webservice API, with plugins for Drupal, Joomla, WordPress and other popular content management systems. As now, it will also be able to be ran on a generic website. Building it as a webservice will allow for much easier installation, and will also allow developers to develop their own user interfaces for the software. The software for the webservice API will also be released, so that websites can run their own webservice if they want, and not have to depend on ours. Features that will be added in 4.0: Italicization of added words Strongs number search Strongs definitions Native plugins for common CMSs including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla Optimized verse proximity search (as it currently runs very slow) More options for displaying, copying, and printing text. Features that may be added in 4.0: Embedded Strongs numbers (for Bible modules that support it) Statistics including readability statistics This is by no means a complete list. In addition, the new webservice will be able to produce any common webservice format, including XML, SOAP, JSON and JSONP.
