Creating Links to MyStudyBible.com Content

  • Comments 1

MyStudyBible.com has a built-in URL shortener to create quick links to verses and content on the site.  By simply highlighting any verse* you will get a neat little pop-up that will allow you to copy the link.  We drop the link right into your computer's clipboard for you to paste into a tweet, email, browser URL, or other document.

In the March 2011 update to MyStudyBible.com, we enabled this pop-up feature for the Bible translations, but we are still working on integrating it to the other content.  However, even without the pop-up, our shortening service still works! In this blog post, we will explore the art of manually making MSB.to links.

 

The MSB.to short URLs are consist of three elements:

 

1)    MSB.to/

2)    The content volume you are directing to

3)    The location in the content you are directing to

 

Let's look at two samples to get the process down.  First, let's create a link to John 3:16 in the HCSB translation.  There are three elements:

URL Content Location
MSB.to/ HCSB= Jn3:16

 

Changing to a different translation is just as simple as changing the translation letters, so John 3:16 in the NASB translation would be:

 

MSB.to/NASB=Jn3:16

 

You can automatically get the short URL for Bible verses by using the Copy/Paste pop-up tool. But now that you know the formula, we can explore creating a short link to other content.  All you need to know is the short name for the content piece, and an applicable reference point.  For example, "That's Easy for You to Say" is a dictionary, so a reference point is the definition term.  So, to create a short link for Melchizedek, the link would be:

 

MSB.to/ThatsEasy=Melchizedek

 

It's that easy!

 

For your convenience, bookmark this page to see how to create the various short URLs for our content.  In the table below we have listed the free content available in MyStudyBible.com, their short names, reference point type, and an example.  Enjoy!
