What are Hyperlinks?

  • Hyperlinks are code that instructs Logos to navigate to a specific place within a book or to open a file.
  • Logos can format hyperlink code for use as URL, HTML, Wiki, and Logos Reading Lists.
  • You can create links to
    • Resources
    • Searches
    • Guides
    • User Files
    • Collections
    • Biblical People, Places, and Things
    • Copy Bible Verses.



Creating

1) You can tell if you can create a hyperlink by clicking on the panel menu. If “Copy Location as:” is in the list then you can create one. You can choose from URL, HTML, Wiki, and RL. Choosing URL will be right for local uses. Ctl+Alt+C will also copy the code to your clipboard using the last used hyperlink style.



2) For use in a Logos Note file: Highlight a word and past the hyperlink code in the Hyperlink textbox (see illustration below). Or, simply paste the raw code into the note file and hit space. The note file also automatically recognizes Bible references and creates a link to your top prioritized Bible.

3) For use outside of Logos: Embed the link using your word processor, etc. See below: Adding Hyperlinks in PowerPoint




4) To use the link ctr + click on it to open Logos to the spot where the link was generated.



Understanding the components of a hyperlink are will allow you to customize links or create them from scratch.
Bible Links
 Prioritized Bible
logosref:Bible.Jn1.1

  • logosref: – hyperlink protocol for a datatype
  • Bible. – Specific datatype to be used
    • Your prioritization list will determine which resource this opens, this type of link can be adjusted for any datatype
    • You can specify the versemap to be used i.e. logosref:BibleBHS.Jonah2.5 will open Jonah 2:4 in most English Bibles
    • Jn1.1 – Verse reference
    • The protocol recognizes full book names and most abbreviation schemes for the Bible books

Specific Bible
logosres:esv;ref=BibleESV.Jn1.1

  • logosres: – hyperlink protocol for resource
  • esv; – version used
  • ref=BibleESV – Verse map to be followed in link’s execution
  • .Jn1.1 – Bible Reference

Dictionary Links
logosres:anch;hw=Moab

  • logosres: – hyperlink protocol for resource
  • anch; – resource to be used
  • hw=Moab – headword to be opened, this should work for any dictionary.

Other Resource Links
logosres:1000illsprchtch;ref=Page.p_45;off=663

  • logosres: – hyperlink protocol for resource
  • 1000illsprchtch; – resource to be used
  • ref=Page.p_45; – page to be opened
  • off=663 – Offset, tells Logos how far down the page to open the resource
    • If you delete the offset then Logos will open to the top of the page.
    • If you delete ref=Page and everything after it then Logos will open the resource to its last used location. This can be used to create a local reading list in a note file.

Feature Links
The logos4 protocol covers specific features of the software, including Biblical People/Places/Things, Cited By, Explorer, and Text Comparison.
logos4:Places;id=BethanyBeyondTheJordan;map=BiblicalWorldRelief

  • logos4: – hyperlink protocol for resource
  • Places; – open the Biblical Places panel
  • id=BethanyBeyondTheJordan; – show information for the Biblical Place with this identifier, namely, “Bethany (Beyond the Jordan)”
  • map=BiblicalWorldRelief – which map to display. This might also be a media object in a resource (like a photograph from a Bible dictionary).

Without the last element, the link will open to the last map if relevant to this place, otherwise the first choice.

Problem: Libronix executes the protocol instead of Logos 4

Some users have reported this after running the scripts to download Logos resources into Libronix or installing/updating Libronix after Logos 4.

To repair this, run Logos 4 with the “/register” command line option. The easiest way to do this is choose Start > Run, and enter
%LOCALAPPDATA%\Logos4\Logos4.exe /register

(On Windows XP, run "%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Logos4\Logos4.exe" /register

Note 1: Logos 4 installs on a single user account in your system. If you have multiple installs on different user accounts you will need to run this command under each separate user account.
Note 2: If you have a custom installation run drive:\<path>\Logos4\Logos4.exe /register

  • Frank Fenby has made a great video on this, please watch it: Hyperlinks between Logos and PowerPoint
  • This will guide you through the steps to add links to your PowerPoint files.
    • For this example you should use a resource in your Main Logos window.
    • Its also best to have only one copy of that specific resource showing in your Main Logos window.
      • Otherwise which ever copy of your resource that was left active is the one that Logos will navigate to when a link is clicked.
    • In this example we used Luke 24:1, 24:13, 24:36 for our links in the NIV resource.
  1. In Logos, click on the window icon of the resource that you want to link to
  2. In the drop down menu select URL. (this is a one time action, it tells Logos that you want links in the URL format. Just need to do it in one of your resources.)
  3. Notice the keyboard command for creating a link, we will be using it later.



  4. Now in PowerPoint, enter the text that you want to show for your hyperlink
    (we have entered 4 lines which we will create 3 different links for the first 3 lines)



  5. Back in Logos, position the resource to the location that you want your hyperlink to take you
    (e.g. the right resource and location, the location in the reference box is the precise location for the hyperlink. We used Luke 24:1)
  6. Now on the keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + ALT + C. (the hyperlink address will be added to your clipboard)



  7. In PowerPoint, select the 1st line of text that you typed.
    (click at beginning of your text and drag the mouse with the left button down)
  8. Hold the mouse over the highlighted text and right click (a pop-up menu will appear)
  9. In the pop-up menu click on Hyperlink.



  10. When the dialog box appears (as shown below), click in the address box.
    Then on your keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + V. (this is windows standard Paste command)
  11. Now press the OK button. (your hyperlink is built now)




    • Now we will repeat the last 6 steps for 2 other links in our PowerPoint file
  12. Back in Logos, position the resource to the location that you want your hyperlink to take you (move Luke 24:13 to top of screen)
  13. Now on the keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + ALT + C.



  14. In PowerPoint, select the 2nd line of text you typed.
    (click at beginning of your text and drag the mouse with the left button down)
  15. Hold the mouse over the highlighted text and right click (a pop-up menu will appear)
  16. In the pop-up menu click on Hyperlink.



  17. When the dialog box appears, click in the address box.
    Then on your keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + V.
  18. Now press the OK button.



  19. Back in Logos, position the resource to the location that you want your hyperlink to take you (move Luke 24:36 to top of screen)
  20. Now on the keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + ALT + C.
  21. In PowerPoint, select the 3rd line of text you typed.
  22. Hold the mouse over the highlighted text and right click (a pop-up menu will appear)
  23. In the pop-up menu click on Hyperlink.
  24. When the dialog box appears, click in the address box.
    Then on your keyboard press the key combination Ctrl + V.
  25. Now press the OK button.

    • Now we have 3 links created in our PowerPoint file.




  • Now we will test our new links.
    • While still in the edit mode in PowerPoint
      1. Hold your mouse over the 1st link (Jesus is Risen!) and right click. (a pop-up menu will appear)
      2. In the pop-up menu click on Open Hyperlink.



      3. Now Logos is brought to the front of your desktop and you should see your resource active and at the location you set in your first link.



        • [This works best if you had your resource in your Main window.]
        • [If your resource was in a floating window, you will have to manually activate (click on that window in your taskbar) that window.]

      4. Try repeating the first 3 steps for the other links.
  • Now if you run this PowerPoint slide, you will see the links.
    Simply click on a link and it will take you to the your resource in Logos.
