    Preferable to what? No link? Or a different sort of link? I generally think about them as offering a convenient way for those interested to see the context (and/or either the original language or English if only one or the other is quoted), but maybe you're getting at something else? – Susan Dec 30 '15 at 1:40

    It certainly is convenient, but there are a few issues with hyperlinks, as you know, one being broken hyperlinks. For example, BlueLetterBible (www.blueletterbible.org) changed its interface from Classic to its current interface, and the URLs changed in conjunction. I've had to go through many of my olds posts and update URLs. Should we just cite the translation/version (e.g., NASB, ESV) and/or source text (VUL, Ralfs, NA28) in superscripted parentheses and just allow the reader to use their own preferred Bible or Bible website to view them? I'm just thinking about standardization here. – user862 Dec 30 '15 at 1:45
  • @H3br3wHamm3r81 Oy! What was probably simpler in the earlier genesis of this site has been bogged down by the various software versions and their adaptability to Markdown. Door #3 would be my preference-I can certainly take the time to examine your sources-using my preferred OS and references. – Tau Dec 30 '15 at 1:53
  • @Tau: I may have been editing while you were commenting. Is it the current #3 that you prefer? – user862 Dec 30 '15 at 1:54

    @H3br3wHamm3r81 Yes sir, it is. – Tau Dec 30 '15 at 1:55

    @H3br3wHamm3r81 I may make an exception if it is the DSS or other more 'exotic' references. Any 'authorial' references of course should be linked. – Tau Dec 30 '15 at 2:00
  • @Tau: What about future broken links? – user862 Dec 30 '15 at 2:02
  • @H3br3wHamm3r81 That's a Caleb or Jon question; it is certainly hard to post an answer with a broken link; how much is it the site vs the OP only they can answer. – Tau Dec 30 '15 at 2:05
  • @H3br3wHamm3r81 I missed your edit-it's #4 I would prefer, for the reason previously stated. – Tau Dec 30 '15 at 2:15
  • @Tau: Your comment makes more sense now. :) – user862 Dec 30 '15 at 2:16

    What do you think of theses? – Paul Vargas Dec 30 '15 at 5:26
