[bioontology-support] Ontology Help

Thanks for contacting us and sorry about the issues you are having. I've 
fixed the problem with the ontology not being found at the URL, which 
was a bug on our side. However, it looks like there is a problem 
displaying terms for the ontology and we're looking into that.

Now that the ontology page is viewable, you can edit the information and 
submit new versions using the "Administer" menu that should show up when 
you are at the ontology page and logged in with the account you used to 
submit the ontology. The "Administer" menu should appear next to the 
ontology name on this page:

For the tree widget, can you provide the ids for the ontologies you are 
trying to view?
