[bioontology-support] ontology loading problem

Hello Jonathan,

All of the URLs you listed below are part of a SourceForge site where the root seems to have been removed and results in a 404 error:

I noticed these are all OBO ontologies, so I looked on the OBO Foundry website and was able to find this updated download URL for the Anatomical Entity Ontology:

The other 3 ontologies are marked as obsolete on the OBO Foundry website, so I was unable to find alternative download URLs. If you’d like, I could modify these entries in BioPortal to stop checking the SourceForge URLs on a daily basis for new versions. This would prevent BioPortal from sending you email about load failures. The ontologies are otherwise fine and displaying as normal in the BioPortal application.

Kind regards,

I have had 4 emails (below) about my ontologies not loading

These should all be stable as they haven’t been touched by me for a few years

Is the problem at your end?
