There have been reports of an unreliable gene basket (shopping cart). Sometimes, the contents of the basket could be truncated or lost at seemingly random intervals, when using the gene search. I have tracked down the problem to a marginal issue with the Tripal logo in the footer of the site: https://github.com/tripal/tripal/issues/918
The problem should now be fixed and the basket contents should be safe. The contents will also be properly preserved between logins (but not when you create a basket as an anonymous user and then log in, as intended). Please let us know if you experience any problems with the basket.
