Bible-Nav : Favorites


Favorites

Favorites
Bible-Nav Favorites are collections of Bible verses of your own choosing. 

Two links to two lists of Favorites appear at the bottom of every Bible-Nav page —

Pressing one of the Favorites links will take you to that Fav listing. 

Within the Bible Reader, the Favorites links will appear like this (assuming you are displaying the WEB version of John 3:16) —

As before, pressing one of the Favorites links will take you to that Fav listing.  Here, though, by pressing one of the “add” links displayed below the Favorites, you will add the current passage to either Fav1 (to the left) or Fav2 (to the right).  If the current Bible passage is already included in a Fav list, “n/a” will be displayed (although there is no restriction on having a passage duplicated in a list). 

A Favorite passage can be set at a book and chapter level or at a book, chapter, and verse level.  Favorite passages are also specific to the Bible version you are reading (Joh3:16 WEB is not the same as Joh3:16 KJV). 

A Fav list can be given any name that you would like.  If no name is assigned, the Fav list will be titled after the first passage in the list. 

All display and editing of passages is handled with the two main Fav lists, Fav1 and Fav2.  Seven other Fav lists, Fav3 through Fav9, are available for storage.  These ‘backup’ Fav lists can be swapped with either Fav1 or Fav2 at any time.  The Swap feature appears at the bottom of the Favorites page. 

Fav1 and Fav2 have two modes of operation, Display and Edit. 

Display mode is entered in one of two ways —

  1. By pressing one of the two Fav links at the bottom of any Bible-Nav page. 
  2. By pressing the Display Fav link at the bottom of the Favorites page. 

In Display mode, you can view the passages in the list.  At the bottom of the page, you can also swap the list you are displaying with another Fav list. 

Edit mode is entered in one of two ways —

  1. By adding a passage from the Bible Reader page. 
  2. By pressing the Edit Fav link at the bottom of the Favorites page. 

In Edit mode, you can perform the following operations on individual passages —

In Edit mode, at the bottom of the page, just like in Display mode, you can also swap the list you are editing with another Fav list. 

In addition, you can assign any text name to the list you are editing.  The name can be up to 40 characters in length (although, in most places, only the first 20 characters will be presented). 

Further down on the page, if any passages are being listed in Edit mode, two links will appear below the Display passages link —

Immediately after you have pressed either a ‘Clear’ or ‘Clear All’ link, an additional link will appear —

Finally, you should be aware that Favorites depend on ‘cookies.’  If cookies are turned off on your browser, Favorites will not work.  Also remember that, because cookies are not shared between computers, your Favorites will also not be shared between computers. 

Last Word

Of all the tools on Bible-Nav, Favorites may be my ‘favorite.’  For over forty years as a Christian, I've been collecting Bible verses.  I love to have them available for both comfort and memory work.  And now I can have them as close as a link on my smart phone.  Excellent!
