ScriptureLog for WordPress - Flooding the Internet with the Book of Mormon

Postby jmaxwilson » Mon Oct 26, 2009 10:23 am

Just wanted to let you all know about our new project: ScriptureLog.

Scripturelog is a free, open source plugin for the popular Wordpress blogging platform that turns Wordpress into a collaborative online LDS scripture study journal.

I alluded to it a few months ago here on the forum when I posted about the Book of Mormon Textual Structure outline I had created, which was an outgrowth of this project.

The plugin installs volumes of scripture into Wordpress as hierarchical, inter-linking pages of books, chapters, and verses. Once the pages are installed, you can use the built-in features of Wordpress by yourself or in collaboration with others to read the scriptures, take notes, and discuss the gospel.

ScriptureLog benefits from all of the great features of Wordpress. And there are scores of free plugins and themes that can be used to customize the site to your liking: plugins to make the site private, or to require registration; plugins to allow people to subscribe to be notified of comments by email; plugins to allow people to login using Facebook or Open ID; plugins to interface with twitter.

Currently only the Book of Mormon is available. Though not yet available for download, the code for the Old and New Testaments, the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, and the Pearl of Great Price is substantially complete.

Every ScriptureLog page links to the corresponding section at the official LDS Scriptures website.

Because it is open source and built on Wordpress, the plugin is open to innovation by others. Wordpress has a well documented plugin API and we hope that in addition to suggesting patches to the plugin itself, other developers will produce companion plugins to enhance its features.
