    The esword user site seems to be gone, but someone started a new similar site with forum and downloads. They are still adding modules so it will be awhile before they are up and running with tons of modules, but should be a great resource for esword users.

    Edit: Bet a link would be good :)

    Also there is "My Sword" available as an app for Android users. I take that it is a spin off of e-sword.

    He's talking about e-sword-users.org. A site filled with modules. But they've had violations with their host.

    Thanks for these. I just reinstalled my OS (got a solid-state drive for it now) and will shortly be reinstalling everything else on a second drive. I saved all the stuff I already had in e-Sword but I am always on the lookout for more.

    MySword supposedly will use converted The Word modules. There is a thread developing on the site suggested in the original post.

    The Word is a close second to E-sword and I'm about to shift to it. It is faster and has most of the modules esword has. esword is like a turtle anymore on my rigs.

    There is also a converter from esword to The Word that works well except it will not do purchased resources.

    If I make the shift to The Word I will have to retain esword for some purchased stuff but will still save time.

    The esword user site, from what I gather from reading, was founded by a group of people that ultimately got tired of the work, left and the site has been floundering under the great work of one or more men that struggled to keep it going, but they did not have the permissions to fix the problems that came up.

    I have not heard if anyone is going to be able to get things worked out or not.

    This new site promises to be a good replacement when it gets rolling.

    There is another site that has a lot of stuff for esword as well as My Word

    http://www.davidcox.com.mx/#English he has a spanish site as well - he is a missionary.
