  1. Sidebar notes

    I'd like to be able to see the passage I'm reading while making a note. Could the notes window be movable, or on the side?

      • Custom fonts and font sizes

        It would help readability if the text were in a sans-serif font such as Arial or my favorite, Verdana. Perhaps giving your readers a choice of fonts would help even more.

        • Plan of Salvation

          Having a button just to quickly pull up the plan of salvation so you do not have to take the time to look each verse up. For express options do to lack of time or keeping people focused.

          • Offline Lightweight Software

            Well, just like the above statement says. I don't know if this can be done because a lot of the Bible versions are not free! NKJV, NRSV and NASB are some of my favourite versions that are not free of some free Bible softwares! : ( But I think this is a good idea!

              The NKJV, NRSV or NASB scripture will have to be purchased for offline access because of licensing restrictions from the publishers. However, an offline version of eBible is an interesting idea.

            • Show Multiple Sets of Verses on Scripture Page

              I am trying to put a set of verses on our webpage as follows... 2Cor. 5:20-6:10. This does not work. I do not get a link. If I use 2Cor. 5:20-21, 6:1-10, I get two separate but proper links.

              Thanks for this excellent service. It works for most simple text references very well.

              • Next/Prev Navigation

                I really like the idea of next/previous buttons going back and forth to chapters but it will be much better if we could do this without reloading page.

                • Support more complex bible reference searches

                  A search on "Mt 4:4, 7, 10" returned zero results. Needed to change the term to "Mt 4:4-10" to get a result back. This should be a basic feature of the site.

                  • Make the Desktop and Mobile app experience the same

                    Right now as it stands, the desktop version of ebible and the ipad version are 2 different experiences.
                    The Desktop version is very minimalist, has tons of white space, has Sans Serif font and is straight to the point. This is a great layout and experience.
                    However, the iPad, uses old Serif font, has a dingy old creamish look to the background, has actual book pages to make it look like an acutal book (even though it's on a mobile device) and when you hold it in landscape mode you get a book layout that eats up a lot of…

                    • Scripture Memory Tools

                      Please provide a tool to aid with Scripture memory. i.e. fill in the blank with increasingly more words missing as the verse is done correctly or less blanks if you make some mistakes.

                        • Other Arabic translations

                          There should be other Arabic translations. The one translation available (Smith Vandyke) is old and difficult to read. Both the Sharif and the Kitaab al-Hayaa are more commonly used translations in the Arab world. How about adding one of them or both?

                          • More versions

                            I would suggest adding the following Bible versions:

                            - Polish versions
                            - Spanish (mainly Reina Valera 1960)
                            - Norwegian versions

                            God bless!

                              I would like to thank all of you at eBible for this ministry.
                              This is a very good way for all of us and visitors of our websites to interact with God's Word. I would volunteer to make this project available in Albanian language.

                              In Christ,
                              Lorenc Tona

                              • Multiple word search string, contained within single or double quotes.

                                It would be great if we could use a multiple word search string, contained within single or double quotes. For example, I was looking for the exact string 'fear not' and it gave the same results as the single word 'fear' even though that string is in the version I was searching.

                                    Can we also have the Greek character encoding for the "explain" options?

                                    • Embedable "Verse of the Day"

                                      I would (really) like to have the ability to embed "Verse of the Day" in my blog or website. That could be such as e.g. a widget or any other form relative to where it will be placed/embedded.

                                      Thank you!

                                      • Minor Errors Form or Bug Report Form

                                        As I go through the reading plans, I occasionally find minor errors (thus far only pop-up references ill-formatted or missing scriptures or the like).

                                        It seems overkill to send a tech support email every time. I'm thinking a quick form requesting the required information could send over to someone's queue, and boom. Done. I don't really need emails and conversation with each one. I trust y'all are doing everything you can to make this site fantastic - it already is!
                                        I just want to help in this small way.

                                        • eBible Open Source

                                          I love eBible and as a programmer I would love to help support ebible through extensions, layouts, add -ons, etc. It's great that people can use ebible for free, but as long as its proprietary its going to be limited.

                                          Open sourcing eBible would:
                                          1. Allow developers to contribute code in different ways.
                                          2. Allow developers to contribute to bug fixes/compatibility issues/new features/etc.
                                          3. Create a rich community.

                                          If your not willing to go completely open source you could do what alot of other OS software do, have an OS version and a proprietary version. That way you can continue…
