This page provides some helpful tips on how to make the most of simplybible.com —if you are a frequent visitor, you may find this page useful.
The simplybibleFinder... allows you to search simplybible.com’s extensive database to obtain a list of lessons and pages relevant to words, phrases, and questions which you enter. The simplybibleFinder (SiFi) search box is at the top and bottom of every page. The search page explains how to use simplybibleFinder.
Printing of pages... Pages on simplybible.com will print in a special format when you ask your browser to print. Only the essential content will print, saving you paper and ink, and giving you a neat and readable presentation for handouts. In Pick-a-box at the end of an article, you will find a PRINT VIEW icon among the first few boxes. This will change the page to a print version, so that you can see the content and format that automatically goes to your printer. You don't need to use this button before printing. You might need to use your browser’s own print preview to adjust printing to 100% —if you have a shrink-to-fit function enabled. For more information see Page Options.
Pdf Documents... Some pages are also available as pdf documents. Or there may be an ebook in pdf related to the page. In such cases, a PDF button will appear in Pick-a-box among the first few boxes. This button will give you the pdf file. If your browser doesn't download the pdf file automatically, it will open the file, and you can save it on your computer. (If you want a pdf version of any page, and we don't have a pdf version of it, you can quickly make your own pdf. Ask your browser to print, but choose the pdf option such as "save as pdf".
Narrow Windows... If you display simplybible.com in a narrow window, you will notice that the pages automatiocally rearrange themselves to fit as you resize. The same is true when you view simplybible.com on small devices. This feature makes simplybible.com a fully mobile friendly site.
Site Map. The tabs near the top of every page will display the main directories and indexes to the site. You can also access these in the pick-a-box navigation system near the bottom of any page. There is a site map if you need it, and its icon is in pick-a-box.
Index pages... From the main indexes you can access all of the alphabetical and topical index pages. So on each page of simplybible.com both at the top tabs, and Pick-a-Box at the bottom, you have access to all indexes.
Threads Pages... provide other topical groupings. Lessons on simplybible.com are grouped into topical series. However many other topics are covered by lessons scattered among several series. Such lessons are connected as it were by threads to provide alternative lesson sets. When a lesson belongs to a thread, there will be a yellow THREAD box in the pick-a-box array. Just touch that box to get the thread listing.
What’s New Page... lists the latest additions to the simplybible.com website. If you use this site a lot, this page helps you find new material. The page lists all new lessons (latest at top), and informs you of recent developments. You'll find NEW in pick-a-box.
