Thanks, Retro.  Making this thread a "sticky" to keep it readily available to our board members.

Thanks again for your efforts.

Retro do you have Urban Dharma in there?
I'm sorry for showing my laziness by just asking...

Greetings Laura,

Retro do you have Urban Dharma in there?
I'm sorry for showing my laziness by just asking...

I was looking into this yesterday in fact... but it's tricky to isolate the Theravada material from the non-Theravada material, on account of the fact their folder structures don't work on Theravada / Non Theravada lines. It was a little easier to do at somewhere, say, like Buddhanet, where I could pick and choose certain folders at the site that contained Theravada material.

And of course, that's not having anything against Mahayana, but if I was to include all sites that addressed both forms of Buddhism, you may as well just be using regular Google for these searches. For a specialised search engine of this nature, it's more about what it filters out, than what it allows in.

Metta,
Retro. :)

Hi Retro,

I'm perplexed because I've only seen the dhamma there.  I'm missing part of the site!

Do you want me to look at the folders and see if it can reasonably be separated?

Best,
Laura

Greetings Laura,

If you do find a folder pattern I can work with, that would be great.

Metta,
Retro. :)

May I humbly suggest the following site: http://allisburning.org/

It's a project I contributed to some months ago and thought it would have its place in here  :pray:
