site gone glitchy mcglitchy

This morning I'm finding that the site loads, then the moment the page flashes up, it goes to reload - back to the blank grey, again and again. It takes ages to be able to read a page and then it all starts again when I navigate to another part of the site. Clearing cookies etc not helping (obviously). Help!

It's working fine for me now, thank you

Yup, the same is happening to me.

Same here! It makes it kinda hard to learn Russian...

Oh. Still glitchy.

I'm able to use the site, but not able to record the fact that I've done a practice session. This leads to no points (I'll live) but also to being offered almost the same practice session every time, thereby limiting progress.

Yep, same for me. Try and strengthen skills, loads up the first practice page, then reloads it. Over and over. Cant do anything on the site right now.

Me too. Are you using Chrome?

For now though:

March 30, 2016

I'm not the OP but keep getting the problem while using Firefox (on a Win7 device).

March 30, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PJMCD

Hmm, so it's not just Chrome. I'm using Windows 7 as well.

March 30, 2016

It looks like this problem is only on Windows, possibly even only Windows 7, because there are no Mac OS problem reports and I'm using Chrome OS with no problems. Hmm...

It was playing up on IE and Chrome.

It's definitely the website then.

I don't think the browser matters for this glitch/bug, but operating system definitely does (I'm running Chrome OS with no problems). Strange.

The problem is fixed now - see Luis' comment above.

Can report the exact same issue using the Vivaldi browser.

The pages refresh 3-4 times. Seems like a loop in programming.

Same problem happens on my IPad but not on my laptop

Yes, site totally unusable on the iPad today!

Didn't happen to me- though I was in London...

Having the same problem on Chrome and Firefox for Android. And (using my Android phone) it keeps reverting back to the mobile website after I've selected to view full site. In my opinion the mobile site is useless as you can't flag problems or view the sentence discussions.

I have been having this issue occasionally for a while now but it has become much worse today with the site reloading at least once every time I view a new page. I have managed to reproduce the issue on Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Edge, and Internet Explorer on Windows 10.

March 30, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/68dustin

Ahhh, it's OS-specific. I'm running Chrome on Chrome OS with no reloads, programming loop probably.

Still repeated reloads due problems with the site on the iPad, I cannot access any of the lessons at all. The Duolingo tab now reads "Web Page Crashed". Will give it up at this rate.

Yowzah!

Had crashing trouble for weeks now. Had given up until an iPad update promised rectification of recurrent crashes. Installed and was back again for a couple of days. Now back to frustrated attempts to either learn or strengthen anything, as problems occur so reloading abandons. So do i!

Is this the app or the website?

April 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PietervanVelzen

I've been using the website, but not for much longer. Have not tried the app.

https://www.duolingo.com/Luis

Can you send us a clear description of what you're experiencing (including screenshots would be best)?

April 4, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/PietervanVelzen

When I select any lesson, all I get is a page repeatedly stating that the page is being reloaded. No paste function here so, I don't know how to include screenshot.

Have downloaded the app, and will continue with it!
