Switching between courses in the new website
I'm sorry if someone has already posted this before, but I could not find it in the discussion board or in search.
Switching between "English -> Spanish" and "Spanish -> English" courses was already difficult in the old website, but the new website has added a few more steps. Now you have to go all the way to the page that has all the courses, change the language to Spanish, pick the English course, and then on the next page you can go to the course. (the same process vice-verse).
Is there an easier way for switching in the new website that I have not discovered yet?
Or, you can construct the URL for the course and switch there. For example, Español for English looks like this:
Or English for Español:
These are ISO 639-1 codes for languages.
There's also a new course switcher script jrikhal has written, I haven't used it and can't verify anything.
The reference as I understood it was to the flag to the top left of your current skill tree, not the flag immediately next to your avatar. This, in fact, takes you to a menu with all 69 currently available courses on the old website. [Shockingly enough perhaps, I have never used any userscripts.]
Assuming it's correct that this comprehensive switching functionality has been disabled with the new website, then I'd say it's actually all the more annoying that alternatives are the more circumscribed ;)
I suppose I am well equipped to survive lapses in userscripts more generally, but I have five base languages I work from. I am fortunate that all the relevant strings happen to begin with different letters, so navigating that otherwise ungainly menu has never really been an issue.
