Ease of use

Works great once that one change is made.

Nicely designed module - easy to set-up and manage. Comes highly recommended.

Many thanks.

Very good module but...

This is a very useful module that works perfectly. The only thing is I wish the link to Bible Gateway, references and copyright could open in a new window, which is not the case at the moment.

Valued Addition

Posted on 19 November 2012

This module is a valued addition to sites I've set up where a daily verse is desired; since Bible Gateway has already taken up the task of selecting verses, this module cuts out the need to reinvent the wheel so to speak.

I'm starting to work on Joomla 3.0 just to get familiar with it, and wanted to also note for those tinkering with 3.0 (which this module is not officially supporting yet) you have to make two minor adjusts to a PHP file for it to work (at least in my case I had to).

In mod_bg_votd.php, line 7: Change .DS.'votd.php' to .'/votd.php'

In mod_bg_votd.php, line 14: Change getValue('config.offset' ); to entries[$offset];

At least it kept the module from breaking. I'll have to monitor if there are any lingering issues after that, but it pulled up today's VOTD.

This module is easy do download and install. However, if you are looking to use this module on a secured page (SSL) it is not secure.

I used a Windows based software that shows all insecure items on a secured page. This module (2.1.0 version) is insecure. This was tested in Chrome, IE and Opera. Once this module was unpublished the page became 100% secure.

Overall, good plugin but if security is a factor then I would skip it. Hopefully the developers will look into getting this fixed.

I figured since this module worked for joomla 1.7, I could try it for my joomla 2.5 website. In less than 5 mins, I got it working on my site. You can try it for your joomla 2.5 installations too.

thanks for the love module.

Works fine

I downloaded, installed and worked perfectly at the first try. On joomla 1.7.

Many thanks to the developers.

Like this module, but...

i really like this module.

However, is there a change for me to get the Dutch "Statenvertaling" version?

I would be very greatful.

A Nice Blessing

It's a real good job for keeping God's Word everyday in our minds.

The only thing that is strange for me is that Reina Valera 1960 is not active there.

It's the most read version in Spanish! My website is in spanish and I have the RV1909 (which is antigua) but it will be perfect for me when I have the 1960 (which is the one I use).

Good job, but I'll wait for RV60.

Great product
