How To Create Links Into the Online Urantia Book

There is now an easy way to copy a Urantia Book Online link, an mp3 file audio link or even The Urantia Book text, and then paste it as a reference or initiate an email to send out. 

A summary of all of our Web Tips & Tricks (where you can submit questions, suggestions for the Web Team). We would love to hear about your experiences about using the DISSEMINATION AID.

https://urantiabook.org/Read-Research-How-To

1. Navigate to the Urantia Book Online:

Urantiabook.org -> READ/RESEARCH -> READ THE URANTIA BOOK IN ENGLISH

2. Choose a section like (PART I), Paper 2, “The Nature of God”.
https://urantiabook.org/002-The-Nature-of-God/#0

3. At the top of each numbered section (or the top of the paper) see the 3 vertical dots to the left of the heading and hover there (or tap there if on a mobile device).

4. See the DISSEMINATION AID pop-up that enables you to do the following: Copy text link to clipboard, Copy audio link to clipboard, Send audio link via email. The audio link is only available for the entire paper or an entire section.



5. When you click on Copy text link to clipboard, a link to that location in the Urantia Book Online will be copied into your computer clipboard so you can paste that link into a file or email.  Subsequently clicking on that pasted link will then automatically open a new browser tab into the Urantia Book Online, at that location in the Urantia Book.

When you click on Copy audio link to clipboard, a link to a downloadable mp3 file will be copied to your computer clipboard so you can paste that into a file or email.  Subsequently clicking on that pasted link will start a download of that mp3 (audio) file, which can subsequently be played on any mp3 player on your computer, or can be transferred to any external mp3 player, or can be copied to a USB flash drive to play in your vehicle.  Wouldn’t it be great to give a USB flash drive with an entire paper of The Urantia Book (as an audio file) on it for your best friends to listen to in their favorite vehicle?

When you click on Send audio link via email, a draft email will open up with a downloadable mp3 file audio link pasted into it.  After (optionally) editing that draft email and sending it, the recipient will be able to click on the link and start a download of that mp3 (audio) file, which can subsequently be played on any mp3 player on your computer, or can be transferred to any external mp3 player, or can be copied to a USB flash drive to play in your vehicle.

6. The Urantia Book paragraphs (as opposed to sections) have somewhat different DISSEMINATION AID options. At each paragraph see the 3 vertical dots to the left of the Standard Reference Text (SRT) annotation, e.g., 2.0.1 (33.1)

For these, the DISSEMINATION AID pop-up enables you to: Copy text link to clipboard, Copy text to clipboard, Send text via email.



When you click on Copy text link to clipboard for an entire paragraph, similar to as for entire sections, a link to that location in the Urantia Book Online will be copied into your computer clipboard so you can paste that link into a file or email, and subsequently clicking on that pasted link will then open a new browser tab into the Urantia Book Online at that location in the Urantia Book.


When you click on Copy text to clipboard, the text of that entire paragraph will be copied to your computer clipboard so you can paste that text into a file or email or anywhere you can paste text (like a huge reader board or highway billboard).


When you click on Send text via email, a draft email will open up with the text of that entire paragraph pasted into it. This makes for an easy way to send text copies of entire paragraphs (or portions thereof if you edit what was pasted) via emails.

How To Quickly Locate Resources

(Multi-Lingual Download Resources, Research Resources, Urantia Book Paper Focused Resources, etc.)

Chief among the goals of this newly redesigned website are: ease of use and features to quickly locate resources of interest (such as, Urantia Book related articles, study aids, Urantia Book Fellowship publications, videos, audio recordings, brochures, downloadable ebook versions of the Urantia Book in English and other languages, and more).

Towards this latter goal of more quickly locating resources of particular interest, the Website Team is pleased to provide a few details (and without getting too wonky!) regarding these new capabilities, for example:

  1. All prior resources (thousands of them!) are being gathered into a common ‘repository’ (aka database) to facilitate their discovery. This work is approximately 80% complete as of this writing.
  2. Additional resources are continually being added as they become available. If you have resources that you would like us to present here, please submit them to us here under "Website Feedback and Technical Issues."
  3. Access to these resources is provided by custom views into the repository and these views are contained on various pages throughout the new website.
  4. It is important to understand that each of these views into the repository is tailored to provide access to the most-relevant resources related to that particular web-page view. As some examples:
    • On the DISCOVER (home) page: the view into the repository only provides basic, introductory-like material.
    • On General Councilor-only pages (accessed from the GC Home Page under OUR ORGANIZATION), the view provides access to: pertinent Urantia Book Fellowship documents.
    • On the “Urantia Book Paper Focused Resources”, under READ / RESEARCH navigation link, the view provides access to highly recommended resources related to particular papers. Note that these resources can also be found when reading the Urantia Book online. Just hover over the yellow book icon in the upper right.
    • A view of all publically-available resources is available on the “Research Resources” web page.
  5. And, it is important to mention that there are several features within the repository views that should greatly aid your searching and viewing of the resources within the repository, such as:
    • Viewscan be filtered (e.g., show me only ‘Articles’) to focus on content that is most relevant to you.
    • Within a view, you can search for resources of particular interest by entering relevant keywords into the search box provided.
    • Within a particular view, the sort order of the resources shown can be reversed (alphabetically or numerically) by clicking the column header.
    • And please don’t forget to click the ‘+’ icon to reveal additional content related to any particular resource.
  6. How To” use the repository views in more specific detail is provided:
    • Within each view by clicking the  ‘Info icon’ near the top of the view.
    • In even more detail in a soon-to-be-released written guide that will be available via the view’sHow To” section.
    • And in a soon-to-be-released video tutorial, likewise to be available via the “How To” section.
