New Suttta Central Site is Live

Post by mikenz66 » Thu Mar 08, 2018 5:38 pm

The new Sutta Central site is up!

https://suttacentral.net
https://discourse.suttacentral.net/t/were-live/8576/

There are bound to be some teething problems, but it looks great. The new feature of reading Ven Sujato's translations in parallel with the Pali is amazing.

:woohoo:

Sam, when you're viewing a sutta, click the settings button (cog icon), then the "View original text with translation" heading will include these options: Side by side, line by line, or pop-up.

Of course, it only works with Sujato's translations, as they have been constructed that way.

It is cool, though. You can go to:
https://suttacentral.net/mn1/en/sujato
Turn on side-by-side translation and Pali lookup using the cog icon, and examine passages like:
They perceive earth as earth. pathaviṃ pathavito sañjānāti;
Hovering over the Pali gives the dictionary lookup.

Oh, wow! That's neat! :clap:

Many thanks Nicolas and Mike. Many hours of harmless fun ahead!

In the next ten years they'll probably sell us an implant so we can read the Pali and understand it automatically...

EDIT - Oh got it. That icon is not obvious fwiw

Note that the new site breaks links like:
https://suttacentral.net/en/an4.62
which affects many of the sutta discussions on our Forum.

See my post here:
https://discourse.suttacentral.net/t/were-live/8576/47
and here:
https://discourse.suttacentral.net/t/is ... ite/8583/8

I understand they are working on that, as it affects the SC discussion forum as well.

Its brilliant (although it only works with Bhikkhu Sujato's translations). :thumbsup:

They're intending to fix it, so be patient...

Though you could probably edit your "Notes..." reviews and replace /en/ with /

If I quote a link on the forum, such as this: https://suttacentral.net/sn12.2/en/sujato, which includes the nāma 'Sujato' in the link, so I can easily post both Pali & English, but if I change the translation, I am doing bad karma or breaching TOS? :shrug: For example:
And what are mentality and materiality?
Katamañca, bhikkhave, nāmarūpaṃ?

Feeling, perception, intention, contact and attention.
Vedanā, saññā, cetanā, phasso, manasikāro—

This is called mentality.
idaṃ vuccati nāmaṃ.

The four primary elements, and form derived from the four primary elements.
Cattāro ca mahābhūtā, catunnañca mahābhūtānaṃ upādāyarūpaṃ.

This is called materiality.
Idaṃ vuccati rūpaṃ.

If you disagree with the translation of the technical terms it would be polite to highlight the changes. Otherwise, it could lead to pointless confusion...

It seems I can only access the Pali via Sujato's translations. Is there another way to access the Pali? Thanks

For example, how do we access the Pali here?: https://suttacentral.net/sn56-pancagatipeyyalavagga

In addition to Mike's point, whether or not changing the translation involves bad kamma surely depends on your intention. A selfless compassionate attempt to clarify the dhamma would involve one sort of kamma, whereas bragging and one-upmanship or settling old scores would involve another sort of kamma.
