Outline Interface

Outline gives a brief and structured representation of the Bible contents.

You can enter the Outline interface from various points:

  • From the Outline link in the sidebar menu.
  • From the icon next to each book name on the Bible index page.
  • From the pop-up available through the Outline pill in all verses views.

Due to technical restrictions we provide a separate outline for each book.

Easy Filtering Interface

There is a special interface named Easy filtering that allows to get an array of verse texts from the given Bible version and Book name. Then you'll be able to filter all verses from the query result, using a special search field. The filter is very quick, but the first loading may take some time.

Browsing Interface

Allows to drill the wiki content down with the help of filters. Filters include:

  • Alphabetical index
  • Topic names
  • Subtopics namespace (Personal or Public)
  • Tags

Select filter values on your own in order to get a short list of subtopics or topics you are interested in. If you got empty result, try to quit some filters.

Personal root page (My Page)

Registered users are encouraged to create their root page. It is a page in the Personal namespace and the subtopics created by the user will be stored as subpages to his or her root page. There are some useful lists and buttons on the root page:

  • Posts. A list of subtopics with dates, references and the rating.
  • Activity. A set of the user related links to special pages:
    • Files uploaded by WikiVisor
    • Pages created by WikiVisor
    • Logged activity for WikiVisor
    • Change password
  • Bookmarks. A list of 50 latest bookmarks.

Members of the bible editors group will have the input field to create new public topics on their root page.
