Convert Bible references into links with hover-preview
Include references like 1 John 4:19 or Eph 2:8-9 on your site. Bible Verse Reftagger automatically tags them, creating tooltips that appear when a reader hovers over them.
 
Adding Bible Verse Reftagger to your Joomla! website is easy.
You have two Joomla! extensions to choose from. The Module or the Plugin. The choice is yours based on how you want to manage the Bible Verse Reftagger extension. Please read below the Pros & Cons between the Module or the Plugin install.
 
Once installed and configured correctly go into your Joomla! Content (Articles) and anywhere you type in a Bible passage title (e.g. Proverbs 27:17), the Bible Verse Reftagger tooltip will be active by just mouse hovering over it.
 
Module Instructions
Instructions: Once installed, open up this module and adjust the settings/options to your specific needs. Make sure to assign Faithlife Reftagger to an active Menu (If you select 'On all pages' Bible Verse Reftagger will be active on all your Joomla! pages. Or, you can pick and choose what menu you want Bible Verse Reftagger active on). Select 'Hide' for the Show Title option and select an active module position YOUR DEFAULT template supports (I strongly suggest using the 'debug' position. However, if your template does not support the debug position, select a module position that displays well below your template's content area. This will generally be 'footer', 'below', 'bottom', etc). Once completed simply click the Joomla! 'Save' or 'Save & Close' button to bind your settings into the database and make Bible Verse Reftagger active. At this point add a Bible passage title on pages you assigned Bible Verse Reftagger to be active on and the supporting tooltip will be active on hover.
 
Plugin Instructions
Instructions: Once installed, open up this plugin and adjust the settings/option to your specific needs. Click the Joomla! 'Enable' button for this plugin and finally, click the 'Save' or 'Save & Close' button to bind your settings into the database and make Bible Verse Reftagger active. At this point add a Bible passage title anywhere within your Joomla! website and the supporting tooltip will be active on hover.
 
Module Usage Pro & Cons:
PROS: Ability to configue the Bible Verse Reftagger module to only load it's code and supporting script on just the pages you wish. Ability to have totally different Faithlife Reftagger settings/options on as many different pages you wish.
CONS: There is a lot more Joomla! default settings demanding your attention and adjustment before being active to use.

Plugin Usage Pro & Cons:
PROS: Far fewer Joomla! settings to make before extension becomes active. In essance, install, configure, enable and forget it!
CONS: Bible Verse Reftagger code and supporting script is always loading and active on EVERY page regardless if you are using it or not.
 
Summery:
Not every Webmaster likes working with Joomla! modules. At the same time, many Wermasters don't like working with Joomla! plugins. So... why not give EVERYONE the best of both Joomla! worlds. Just so we are on the same Joomla! page, BOTH the module and plugin have the same settings/options. So, lets take this off the module vs. plugin debate table!
