Instructions to Link to Bible Gateway Verses
Linking Bible verses to BibleGateway.com: If you use WordPress as your blog platform, you may want to use the independently developed WordPress plugins “Scripturizer” (http://wordpress.org/plugins/scripturizer/) or “BibleGateway Links Shortcode” (http://wordpress.org/plugins/biblegateway-links-shortcode/) to link the Bible verses you use on your blog to their locations on BibleGateway.com, as per the BG² agreement.
Available for you to use on your blog is the Bible Gateway Bible Reference Tagging Tool (see above). This is a way for you to link back to Bible Gateway’s verses. Or manually link the references/verses you include in your posts. Here are the instructions:
- When you write within a blogpost a Bible reference (e.g., John 3:16) or a passage (e.g., John 3: 1-16) or a grouping (e.g., John 3: 1, 15-17, 19), open a new browser tab or window and go to https://BibleGateway.com.
- On the top of our homepage, select your preferred Bible translation from the dropdown version box.
- Go back to your blogpost and copy the reference or passage or grouping as the examples above show.
- Go back to BibleGateway.com and paste what you’ve copied into the search box to the left of the version box.
- Click the Search button.
- The resulting page will display the verses for the Bible reference you pasted. Go up to the top URL browser bar; highlight and copy the URL.
- Go back to your blogpost. Highlight the text you want to link. Click your blog’s editing function that inserts links into your blogpost and paste the BibleGateway.com Bible reference search result URL into it.
