    Default Link BW8 w/ Logos 4 TDNT?

    Hi all

    I was happily linking to TDNT in Logos 3 via the external link manager from the instructions in this thread, but then I thought I'd take a look at Logos 4 and ... now my links won't work.

    The link will call Logos 4, but it won't work anymore. I saw something in another thread saying that Logos 4 links are problematic. Is that still true?

    It also appears that the link will only call Logos 4, not Logos 3 ... if I can't get the external link working in L4, does anyone know how to make it point to L3?

    Thanks!

    Well, doing a little digging, here is the BW link that used to launch TDNT in Logos 3 at the right word.

    libronixdls:macro|name=TextKeyLink|text=<dummy>|la ng=el|scheme=beta|res="TDNT"
    And this is how Logos 4 creates a URL to a specific word in TDNT (palaios)

    logosres:tdnt;ref=GreekStrongs.3819
    I am not sure if that might help anyone help me to get my launch tool working again, but here is an old style (Logos 3) link to an article in BibSac

    libronixdls:jump%7Cpos%3DLLS-AOL%253A716%253CDIV113%253E.5297.0%7Cref%3Dvp.131. 228%7Cres%3DLLS%253Ags_bsac_131
    And a Logos 4 link to the same article

    logosres:gs-bsac-131;ref=VolumeNumberPage.V_131,_N_523,_p_228
    So obviously there is quite a difference in the way these links are made.

    I'm just posting this here in case someone has a bit more understanding of how this works than me and can help me set up a new link launch in BW.

    Thanks!

    Default talking to myself again!

    Just to update this thread, in case anyone is interested, I have been talking to some folks in the Logos forums and think I am making some progress... but no solution to my problem yet.

    I do have a work around, however.

    In the External Links Manager, there is a preset for Logos NA27 which calls the Nestle Aland 27 w/ Gramcord Greek New Testament in Logos. This was already in the External Links Manager when I installed BW, I think. (I know I didn't come up with it.)

    This link, when activated, brings up the correct passage in the NA 27 in Logos 4.

    From there I can right click the word I want and get to the Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains. The DBL has links to the appropriate TDNT entry.

    So... three or four clicks (depending on my right click context in NA 27) and I can get to the TDNT entry.

    I'm still puzzling away at it, trying to find the convenience of one click from BW to TDNT, but this will work for now.

    Don, thanks for all this great conversation, even if it is to yourself! It is helpful.

    Any good swimming beaches near Victoria? Must be cold in the Pacific that far north, huh? Or is that eh?

    Yes, that would be eh, eh?

    There are some lovely beaches part way up our Island, Vancouver Island in Parksville and Qualicum. The water is very shallow there, and goes out quite a way so in the summer it is fairly warm. The summer is a bit short, though. On the Pacific side, the beaches in Tofino are great also, but I get the impression they are colder. They also talk about an undertow, so be careful. Not much between us and Japan on that side.

    If I get more info on this issue, I'll pass it along. And of course, any geniuses (genii?) are welcome to help us all out.

    Thanks Don. Yes, I have heard that Tofino is beautiful. I've never gotten off the mainland though. I've been to Grey Rocks. That was nice. In the Vancouver area, Granville Island is beautiful and very charming. Vancouver has some out of this world restaurants. Not to mention, probably the best fish and seafood anywhere.
