Thank you for sharing these links with us. I have updated the Readings section to include both links. Cheers!
Looking through the examples for 後で, I only found one for the “verb + のは” connection most of it is without connections. This is not that important but maybe in the future there could be 1-2 more to better drill the variations for this grammar. (I find this is a problem for me in some other ones where variations represent a small portion of the examples and I often get those wrong )
What is the difference in meaning between Verb［た］+ あとで and Verb + のは + あとで?
