Polish dictionary with gender

I used to have a tread in Duolingo with a couple of good links to Polish dictionaries (not English to Polish, but extended Polish ones). If I remember right there was a short manual with it as well (trowing parts of the text through translate worked as well). I found these links very usefull for adding cases and genders to my personal wordlist.

(Don't you all learn the genders with the nouns, how else do you learn how to conjugate them?)

Unfortunately I've lost those links (and tread) and I can't find them back (call me 'kippig' (= Dutch)). Can anyone help me with this?

As far as genders go in Polish, it's very easy and you don't have to memorize each word individually. Basically, if the noun ends in -a, it's feminine, if it ends in -i or -e it's neuter, and if it ends in a consonant it's masculine. There are some exceptions, which you will have to memorize. This article gives more complete information about this: https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Polish/More_on_nouns_-_genders

Exactly :) Also you have to memorize the conjugation of masculine, feminine and neuter nouns and adjectives.

It is technically about verbs, but most resources can be used for all words.
