Undefined id edit

@Denny hello, on occasion it seems that the code will lose the lexeme id and will instead link to either or, it looks like an issue on the relevant github repo but perhaps you haven't seen that. Akaibu (talk) 02:41, 25 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Akaibu Thanks for reporting! Yeah, I think that might happen when we move to a different field before it is properly set up, and then we loose the ID. When I find time, I will take a look (or if someone else does, I'd be happy). Thanks! --Denny (talk) 01:14, 26 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Obscure design edit

I suggest to move the explanation of the axes to the top, because it seems to be the key feature of the website, and I had to go through all the text to find out that they even exist and that's not just 8 random related words around. It would be even better if the website itself displayed that info. JWBTH (talk) 21:24, 3 April 2024 (UTC)Reply

OK, I now see that the ✳ button exists that displays axes (the words are misaligned with the lines though). It took me a while to discover it. The connection of ✳ and axes is not obvious, because, again, the user doesn't even understand there are any axes. The buttons also lack any tooltips.
The documentation feels tl;dr'y. A good thing is that paragraphs are isolated, but apart from that, the text lacks visual supports like bold text, lists (there is only one), subsections, or tables. An obvious idea is to make a table of axes in addition to or even instead of presenting them as plain text. JWBTH (talk) 21:43, 3 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
Tried to improve the documentation a bit according to the considerations I outlined. JWBTH (talk) 02:05, 4 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
