Report bugs for the new site here! 🐛


#407

Thanks for filing!

The previous UI worked on iOS. Is it possible to detect the useragent and serve iOS users the old UI? (Not a demand, just brainstorming a quick fix)


#408

At the moment we have no developers working for us who can do this. But there is a new version for the sidebar in the pipeline so I hope that will solve a lot of issues.

In the mean time, if you know the suttanumber, you can simply type that in as in suttacentral.net/mn9


#409

I’m not sure if this is a bug or it might have been reported already.

Whilst reading SN 1.10: Wilderness - Aranna Sutta, I had the ‘view original text with translation’ turned on. I’ve tried both ‘side by side’ and ‘line by line’. And it seems to display extra verses in pali…see screen shot below.


#410

These are not verses belonging to the sutta. They are just statements that the chapter is finished, and a summary of the content. :smiley:


#411

Thankyou :anjal:

Look what I’m trying to do here. The first reply was deleted within a minute and now cannot be recovered or edited.

Turning on Pali+English turns off PTS page numbers. This can be frustrating when working from books that use the PTS referencing…

Even when you can see the PTS numbers, it’s not possible to search for them, due to the way that they are displayed…


#414

Yes, this is a design decision: otherwise you end up with so many numbers in some cases it is impossible to display them all properly. We will revisit this at some point and and figure out a more flexible approach.

You can just use ctrl + f to search the numbers. True, you can’t search the prefix (PTS vp pli), but why do you need to? Usually just write the page number and there you are.


#415

Hmm, yes, that’s true, I was overlooking that…

I see I can work around this by turning off Pali, searching, clicking on one of the tags, so that I will be able to return to the paragraph, scroll to the top, turn on Pali, then reload the page…

:heart:


#416

Well, when you put it like that … :wink:

I’ll make an issue to revisit this design choice when we revise the text pages.


#417

Making something this complex work smoothly for all users is always going to be difficult…

If you are thinking about changes, being able to more easily toggle the Pali (and stay in the same place!) would help this issue, and would also be helpful when reading in English, but wanting to occasionally switch to line-by-line Pali (in a long sutta…).

:heart:


#418

Yes, that’s already in the pipeline.

As is a more fundamental rethink of how we handle references.


#419

Thanks. That sounds great.


#420

This was hilariously diplomatic. :heart:
