Might have it solved now. Might have made it worse! Let me know if you see more than one unread post; that means it's working fully.

Hmm, for some reason this page has «(empty page object)» on top of it and the banner image doesn't appear.

Fixed. The page was missing its group, for whatever reason.

When I edit dictionary entries I see a new category now, 'reverse terms'. In some cases you can find there the same words entered on 'definition', put in a column. Sometimes the full definition, sometimes not. There are cases when that doesn't happen and the category box appears empty.

This is... sort of a feature I forgot to mention; as the name implies, it's meant to be an index of your language sorted by words in the language used for definitions, so you can have a two-way bilingual dictionary. It will be auto-populated if your definition starts with single words separated by commas, semicolons, or periods.

Here's Lilitika's, for comparison: http://memory.rhetori.ca/?id=310&mode=reverse

The key and unique benefit is that you can enter multiple words here on different lines, and the word will show up under multiple headwords in the reverse view. Handy if your native language is full of common synonyms, or if you want to clarify that a concept maps unevenly onto near-synonyms in your native language. The definition is shown in the reverse view to (hopefully) make it easier to see at a glance when word relationships might be asymmetric.

If you click the link to view entries without reverse keywords (e.g. for pre-Perà), you'll be shown a UI that will help you in identifying the words that have definitions that are unparseable. This feature is not compatible with the importer's mass-overwrite feature (as that currently deletes entries entirely) but the importer can include reverse keywords with new entries.

Avatar problems
Every time I try to upload an avatar I recieve an error message. What should I do?
And yes, it's still impossible to write to Rhetorica.

Hello warbear, welcome to Anthologica (Annie, for friends).

Queen Rhetorica seems to have disappeared for a few days, so I suggest you to be patient. I had problems to upload avatar images in the past, and the problem I had is that I tried to upload .png images that were a little too heavy, it seems. If you were trying to upload a .png image, I suggest you to upload the same image but in .jpg format.

If that isn't the problem, or you still have problems uploading the avatar, I suggest you to wait a little more!

I'm aware of this issue, but sorting it out means triggering a whole bunch of cascading updates, a little like pulling a Jenga block out of the bottom of a very tall and precarious tower. The lesson: never install OpenSuse for any reason.

Not that I have ever had the slightest idea of what OpenSuse is. What do I do to upload my avatar?

For now, the best way is probably to use Gravatar while the issue is being worked on.
