When searching around the mettasutta yesterday I already saw that there is some inconsistency in the number of translations that are shown for this text, according to the language I choose. This morning I have explored this a bit more thoroughly.
At Snp 1.8 I’m shown 29 translations into other languages when reading in English. The same for Deutsch, Français, or Italiano, for example. If I choose Klingon I am shown 30 languages, the same for Saarländisch, Sindarin, or Aurebesh. That means that only when I have already chosen Saarländisch as my language can I see that there is a Saarländisch translation of the mettasutta, and the same for Farsi, Sindarin, Aurebesh, and a few others.
At Kp 9 it is similar, only that there is even more variation in the number of translations shown (the number varies between 19 and 23, as far as I can see; but I didn’t try out all languages), and overall, the mettasutta is sown in less translations.
I think the mettasutta is the text that has the highest number of translations on SC. So if the same problem applies elsewhere (which I didn’t test) it is certainly here where it is most relevant.
Yes. I see this too. I think the problem is that your name entry is missing some fields. The “null” is bad and Bhante @Sujato and/or @Blake will need to address this. The “source map” should have a short form and uid for you. These will be used in the url (e.g., mn1/en/sujato). What is showing up in the URL is snp1.8/sld/null. The null is bad.
Thanks for this. It seems that this issue occurs when we fail to properly define the author, at the moment this is silently ignored since once upon a time it didn’t really matter who the author was, as in it didn’t prevent the text from being human readable (the author would still be mentioned in the meta data). Now that the author is a part of the URL it is critical that it be properly defined for the software to generate the correct urls.
That seems to have been the case for some, but not for all. I see that on staging it is fixed for the Amaravati Sangha (for kp9) but not the others. The others seem to have to do with 3-letter language codes (all the ones with a 3-letter language code are missing, amongst which Japanese). The authors for this are defined properly and this has been working before.
Remove the diacritical on the last “a”. I have discussed this with Aminah, since in some places my name was written with diacriticals and in others without. I am usually not using diacritics when writing my name, so it should be without everywhere. There should be no inconsistencies. (The other text next to the Mettasutta is this.)
