Argh! Where'd the Vocabulary list go in the new interface? Any plans to put it back?

Is there anyway to go back to the old interface with the vocabulary tab. That is invaluable for practicing specific words. I have the old interface however my wife has the new one and does not like it all.

Not that I am aware of. But, when in doubt, ask the folks in Support (White tab on the left) if they will change your account back. I totally miss the Vocabulary tab. I'm hoping it's just on a temporary hiatus like several other features. The beta layout is very basic at the moment. But, they have slowly added back a couple of features.

Good luck!

PS I don't know if this will work and only try it at your own risk: If support does not change your account back, I have instructions on how to find the URL for another language's main General Discussion forum. I'm curious if it would work by snagging the URL from someone who has the old format, and plugging these instructions in, EDIT: but for the Vocabulary tab, while signed in to a new account.

Hi OldSpiceGuy, sounds like either you're in the beta layout group, or they've adopted it for everyone now.

There is no Vocabulary tab in the beta layout. Actually, several things are missing (but some good stuff has been added or redesigned for more intuitive navigation of the course.) This might not be permanent, however. I've noticed other stuff missing that the staff said we would have permanently, like the bonus christmas courses. Those were never added to the new layout, which means that they will be added later. I hope they bring the vocabulary tab into the new design.

One of the most important and used tab is the vocabulary tab. It is senseless to have removed it.

I have a bad feeling they are going to remove it for everyone. DL is always testing ways to improve, and I'm sure they are seeing people without the vocab tab progress quicker through the tree, and this seems to be an important goal for DL... I know I will surely miss it if its gone.

Yeah. I feel it's much more important to have access to all the language features rather than have a new, fancy layout (that I will anyway appreciate when available). :)
