[bioontology-support] [BioPortal] Feedback from Clair Kronk

When I execute your search, at first I just see the first screenshot below, showing only one term. But when I click on the '34 more from this ontology' bit in green, I see all the rest.

Ignoring the strange-looking (and politically insensitive) indentation of all those terms under the one entry for 'nonbinary man', it looks like the terms have all been found (not that I know exactly how many it should find). This also matches the number found using the API:

I think the choice of term that is presented first is random in this UI display—it is keeping the visible list short from each ontology, so that results from other ontologies can be seen, if any.

Note that if you search for 'non-binary' in other ontologies (with the hyphen), many more terms are found.

Does this match your experience? I had kicked off a reindexing of the ontology before I noticed the link in the green text, but I think all these additional concepts were always there. You may have noticed otherwise.

Let me know if you have further problems.

Hi! My name is Clair Kronk. I've noticed recently that I can't seem to get search results for the GSSO when searching BioPortal. Was there an issue with uploading the ontology?

Thank you so much!
