Hello, I was wondering what happened to the grammar rules the browser version of duolingo had. It's hard to go through the courses without them. Thanks much.
They are still there although not all courses have them. Perhaps you are looking at one of those.
There was/is an A/B test that removed tips and notes. All courses have some, but, as you rightly say, many courses don't have them for everything. Russian, I seem to remember, does have tips for every skill, and Greek has a lot of them, too. If the OP states where he is lacking tips I can check if I have them.
I thought this ridiculous A/B test had been abandoned long ago.
Are you using a mobile device? It looks like they have made a lot of changes to the mobile website. This did not have tips and notes but it was possible, even on a smart phone, to switch to the full website page to see the tips and notes. Now it looks like you cannot switch to the full site. Hopefully they will see your post and correct the problem.
PS my iPad automatically uses the full website so I hadn't noticed this until I connected on my phone.
You can send a bug report via this webpage in the Duolingo Help Center
"How do I report a bug?"
But the "Tips and notes" are still visible in the Desktop mode of the Firefox browser of my phone with Android version 7.1.1. In all the eight language courses I am doing.
(Dutch-English, English-German, English-French, German-French and the four reversed courses)
Interesting. I can get all the Tips & Notes on the mobile website on my iPhone without having to go to the full version. I'm still on the old website version, however.
Is this the case even on a computer? Perhaps it's a case of nasty A/B test strikes back. Maybe you'll just have to create new accounts until you get one that's not in the test group. Then you can get the direct links to the lessons from your other account so you can see the T&N even for lessons you haven't reached yet (i.e. any of them; you might have to do the first lesson or some such to get things to work normally) in the new one.
I feel for you. This would have me hopping mad.
Here is a discussion with the same complaint:
Have you already send a bug report ? (https://support.duolingo.com/hc/en-us/articles/204728264-How-do-I-report-a-bug-)
Yeah, your account is probably in a test group. If you want to check, hit the F12 key, then go to the "Console" and type duo.user.attributes.ab_options This will bring up a list of current test. I suspect you'll find web_no_tips_and_notes_experiment having the value "true."
