@Sonwbird and @sujato
It may be relevant here to express my wish for some time to see these 3 things
a collection of lets say a 15-30 (pick a number) essential suttas that relate to the ‘core teachings’ of the Buddha, that any committed student of ‘One Dharma’ (not yanas, lineage or sects) a term used in his book by Buddhist Insight teacher ‘Joseph Goldstein’) can find easily from Sutta Central.
Give some keywords and phrases, may be the context too, above each of the the suttas as a way to search all suttas in the Sutta Central (not sure if this is already possible)
Also I feel it is very important to know and reflect on the meaning of some essential pali words to develop Wise attention and reflection on the Dhamma. Lets say 70 words or phrases (with sutta reference) one can reflect on for stream-entry. Example here http://kusala.online-dhamma.net/
Would that be too much work? Just throwing it out there in the wishing “well”.
The Forum search can be narrowed to within a thread, but not a single post. It would be very useful to have what Jhana4 suggests for @johnk’s table, I would certainly use it as they suggest. @khagga I’m wondering if you see merit in this suggestion?
But then clicking that latter result just kind of took me back to the page without any match highlighting or anything so yeah, not that useful.
I think @mikenz66’s suggestion is useful, though. If you hit Command-F (if you’re on a Mac; not sure what the key combo is for Windows or Linux - Ctrl-F?), you just end up on the normal browser search. In this case (after being diligent ) I got to two results that you can tab through with the arrows:
Now, here’s the part I find tricky. There are actually more options behind the keyboard, but you can’t see them as long as the keyboard is active! If you tap in the upper part of the screen, though, the keyboard will vanish, and you will see this:
Note the “On this page (2 matches)” option. Hit that one. And finally you will get a nice little search interface that allows you to page through the matches in the screen — there are two uses of that translation: Bhante Sujato uses diligent as a translation for appamatta, and Bhante Bodhi uses it as a translation for analasa.
