Hey, is it possible to get the link to the API docs site put to the top of the page for each site like the rest?

The old mod portal layout had a link somewhere to the API docs. It's kind of weird I haven't been able to find the docs now from anywhere except by searching with an external web search and by searching for modding on the wiki. It should be easy to find, so I agree.

Even https://factorio.com/support/faq#q-modding-support doesn't link to the api docs.
How about modding?

Factorio has a strong support for modding. Check out our wiki or forums on how to get started with mods.

We also have an online and in-game integrated mod portal.
Like WTF!? It was there before I think. I go to the API often, but I have to keep a tab open for it because there are no links for it accessible anywhere.

Yup. Odd thing is, there’s a link for the API Docs on the API Docs site…. :/

Something else, when exploring the API docs site from a phone, it’s difficult to find anything because there is no search field like on desktops. URL appears to be the same, and using the “Request desktop site” feature from my phone appears to make no difference, so I assume this is an automatic formatting thing. I completely understand it, but maybe if a separate page that’s only for searching could be made available?
