I'd recommend changing this template so that you can choose the version (NIV or KJV). For example:
 +
 +
<nowiki>{{If|test={{niv|}}|then=[[Biblegatewayniv:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]|else=[[Biblegatewaykjv:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]}}</nowiki>
 +
 +
I think that'll work. Basically if you include the optional parameter (niv=''anything'') it should use the NIV link, anything else and it'll default to KJV.
 +
 +
Usage:
 +
<nowiki>{{Bible|Genesis 5:3}}</nowiki> uses KJV
 +
<nowiki>{{Bible|niv=blah|Genesis 5:3}}</nowiki> uses NIV
 +
 +
This leaves any existing links intact and functional while adding the option of using different versions with the same template.

I'd recommend changing this template so that you can choose the version (NIV or KJV). For example:

{{If|test={{niv|}}|then=[[Biblegatewayniv:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]|else=[[Biblegatewaykjv:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]]}}

I think that'll work. Basically if you include the optional parameter (niv=anything) it should use the NIV link, anything else and it'll default to KJV.

Usage: {{Bible|Genesis 5:3}} uses KJV {{Bible|niv=blah|Genesis 5:3}} uses NIV

This leaves any existing links intact and functional while adding the option of using different versions with the same template. -- Sans Deity 18:54, 7 September 2006 (CDT)


Gah, this template suffers from the same bug as Template:WP-name: spaces in the URL aren't properly escaped. --Arensb 20:06, 31 July 2006 (MST)
