Once configured correctly, it works very well. Unfortunately the upload feature for bibles doesn't work. So they have to be uploaded by ftp.
Ease of use
It's easy to use if you have ftp or cpanel for uploading bibles. Without that, it's impossible.
The support forum is gone and it looks like the developer has abandoned this project. Such a shame!
The documentation is limited and videos use outdated versions. It can be a little confusing.
I used this to: I WAS going to use this for our church website. But since it only works if I disable using Search Engine Friendly URLs, I'll have to find another option. I wish I knew how to code this to fix it. It's such a great extension otherwise.
Does just what I want with flexibility.
Ease of use
Easy to use.
So far I have found support response in the support forum to be excellent.
I used this to: Teaching biblical topics at SpiritLeafMinistries dot org.

This extension is perfect for the type of website that I'm starting to build. I love the commentary that is built into your website. I do have one little issue. When I turn on my commentary it give me a 500 internal error. Everything else works perfect just search the website for a solution.
Owner's reply: Please use forums to post error and bugs there. That way it can be debugged.
This component is exactly what I hae been trying to build myself for months. The only downside is that the url will show zenfania in it. The search works perfectly and the parallel is something I was having a hard time implementing into our site. Also I had a question about how to use the search function and I got a answer to my question within a hour of posting it.
Owner's reply: I wanted to rewrite that piece of the code for some time now. and put all views in their separate folder to make URLs smaller. I'll add it to my to do list and will rewrite after I make RSS feeds.

Promising start

Posted on 24 June 2012
This is a good promising start for an online bible study tool. There's 3 english versions: kjv asv & ylt. the commentary part doesn't let you change between commentaries but just shows whatever you have selected as default. Hopefully improvements & features will be added as time goes on.
Owner's reply: Current new version 2.7 allows for infinite number of Bibles as long as XML file that your are importing from is certain format. In current version I've taken out I've taken out commentaries temporary, since I've been looking for a way to get more commentaries and did not want code to interfere with redoing page layout. But will all them back in next version with ability to change commentary from drop down select box.
