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.
Notice: [[biblesupersearch_legacy]] shortcode is removed in version 2.6 and higher. Please install the official WordPress plugin and use Error: You can only have one [biblesupersearch] shortcode per page. This release adds the functionality to allow Bible SuperSearch to be used as a WordPress plugin. This adds a WordPress shortcode [[biblesupersearch_legacy]]. This shortcode takes the following arguments: interface: Bible SuperSearch interface to display (default: user_friendly2) iframe_id: ‘id’ attribute of the iframe tag. Must be unique. Don’t change this if you don’t know what you’re doing.
All users are urged to apply this update, as a serious security issue has been discovered and fixed. In addition, several bugs were fixed, and mysql deprecation errors have been hidden when running in PHP 5.5+. A future release will switch to a non-deprecated mysql extension.
The Bible SuperSearch renovations are complete. In the future, we will be working on special tools for the original Bible languages of Greek and Hebrew, which will be part of Bible SuperSearch Pro. Please stay tuned.

Issues with the advanced search page and Internet Explorer/Firefox for Windows resolved New Bible modules: Thai KJV Spanish Reina Valera 1858 NT Textus Receptus – Parsed Other minor bug fixes Fixed <div> tag imbalance that may disrupt some website’s formatting. Issues with using period in references. Internet Explorer and Firefox for Windows format issues Random Chapter/Verse now works for user_friendly2 interface Proximity/Chapter search with only one word now works, acts as a basic search Fixed bugs in the Bible search tester.
An issue preventing the Bible tester from working has been resolved in the latest release. This release is only available as a patch. This issue resulted in the tester giving a false negative for every test, even when the Bibles are installed properly and the Bible search is working. Download Patch 2.0.71 if this is an issue for you. (If the Bible search is working properly, you don’t need to apply this patch.)
