Bibleref Plugin

The Bibleref Plugin is for Grav CMS. It adds fields to the header (and admin form) for Bible references by version, book, and chapter.


Installing the Bibleref plugin can be done in one of two ways. The GPM (Grav Package Manager) installation method enables you to quickly and easily install the plugin with a simple terminal command, while the manual method enables you to do so via a zip file.

GPM Installation (Preferred)

The simplest way to install this plugin is via the Grav Package Manager (GPM) through your system's terminal (also called the command line). From the root of your Grav install type:

bin/gpm install bibleref

This will install the Bibleref plugin into your /user/plugins directory within Grav. Its files can be found under /your/site/grav/user/plugins/bibleref.

Manual Installation

To install this plugin, just download the zip version of this repository and unzip it under /your/site/grav/user/plugins. Then, rename the folder to bibleref. You can find these files on GitHub or via

You should now have all the plugin files under


NOTE: This plugin is a modular component for Grav which requires Grav and the Error and Problems to operate.


Currently, there are no configuration options.


Adding a reference via Admin

    use Grav\Common\Data\Blueprints;
    use RocketTheme\Toolbox\Event\Event;


    public static function getSubscribedEvents()
        return [
            'onBlueprintCreated' => ['onBlueprintCreated', 0]

     * Extend page blueprints with bibleref fields.
     * @param Event $event
    public function onBlueprintCreated(Event $event)
        $blueprint = $event['blueprint'];
        if (!$inEvent && $blueprint->getFilename() == 'TYPE') {
            $blueprints = new Blueprints('user/plugins/bibleref/blueprints/');
            $extends = $blueprints->get('bibleref');
            $blueprint->extend($extends, true);
