OSIS Compliant Daily Devotional Help
Hello All,
I installed PBible and like it so I thought that I would create our quarterly daily devotional into an installable book. I have spent 3 days now reading over documentation and building examples to try importing. I would like someone to review what I have so far and tell me what I have done wrong. I can import, but nothing shows up. I have tested in The Sword Project and PBible with the same results. I believe the the CONF file is correct but the XML file needs some work.

Any help or suggestions in this would be greatly appreciated. Once I understand what I'm doing I will start a Tutorial that might help others to create their own. Since there appears to be very little documentation regarding Daily Devotionals.

1-Created folder structure listed below.
2-Used XML2GBS.exe to create 3 files idx,dat, bdt (no idea what the 3rd file .bdt is for ).
3-Moved files to idx & dat to the folder listed below.
3-Moved the CONF file the folder listed below.
4-Zipped up the mods.d and & modules folders.
5-Installed the book.
6-Uninstall the book.
