But I'm not sure how easy or difficult that would be to implement. if I remember right, in a previous thread, something like that was discussed but ruled as not a top priority, which I can understand...
Well, if it was very simple i would probably have done it; but it's a bit complex, and this is why i 'push it back'

I, for one, am REALLY looking forward to Bible groupings! It will make my life simpler! :lol:

Ah yes, +1 for Bible Groupings. I know we've asked before. Hope you don't mind us reminding you, Costas. It is still on our wish list :-)

Hello Barolam,
Just wanted to say, "Thanks!". I have implemented groupings similar to yours and it does work very nicely!

I would utilize this, too. I have two main book views, one for expository/exegetical study, and the other for lexical works. It would be nice to have complementary bible views, with English bibles for expository/exegetical study, and Greek/Hebrew for lexical.

Should the commlink method that works so beautifully for commentaries work for dictionaries also? I have created a DictLink module, but it does not appear to populate in the same manner. Am I missing something or does this only work for commentaries? Thanks for the assistance.

Haven't heard back from anyone yet - should the commlinks method work with dictionaries also?

Hey folks,
Just checking again on CommLinks. Is there a way to implement this for dictionaries? When I create a new dictionary module and uncheck it as user module I do not get results. Any ideas?

Hi Darrel, please can you explain some more, maybe a picture or video of what you are after. I am not sure of your expectation..

Hi Jon,
I was just seeing if I could build a diclink module like commlink, where instead creating a commentary file to show commentary links when I clicked a verse that it when I clicked a word or strong's number it would show hyperlinks to dictionaries that contained a reference to that word.

Yes, I was just curious if I could work with dictionary hyperlinks in a manner similar to what is done with commlinks. It appears that I cannot? And if so that is okay. Just my sometimes overactive imagination. :lol:

In Bible view there are Wordlookup settings that popup when you hover a word
