Explanation how to get back your XP Progress bar!
Here is a workaround to bring back your experience points progress bar:
2) Having this program, add a new Custom Script (name, namespace, etc don't matter just fill in "test")
3) Open the Custom Script you created and replace everything with the following content:
Sorry, posting code here doesn't seem to work properly - please download the code (as ZIP) from my page: http://th23.net/wp-content/uploads/temp/th23_Duolingo.user.js.zip
Enjoy your newly "won" XP bar :-)
I understand the purpose of A/B testing but is removing the XP bar really worth an A/B test? It's clearly more motivating as everyone on the site has expressed and it's totally compatible with the coach anyway.
Why not use A/B testing to focus on New Features like using Lignots to purchase language games/tournaments or something.
Perhaps it may be possible for one to inquire, "Does this interject within the policies of this website? Is this appropriate by the standards given by this website?"
Regardless, I am incredibly thankful. Honestly. Please inform me if there are any of the said, "interjections." I am a man of integrity and I am a man of morals and ethics. Please inform me and, if I may, once more, THANK YOU!
Please enjoy the remainder of your day.<pre>
Thank you very much for your support, "DominatorX!" I am grateful for this.
Perhaps it may be possible for one to say, "If I am correct, I gave, 'th23x' roughly 15 lingots and additional lingots for those whom gave this individual lingots."
Perhaps one may add, "I am honestly very grateful for your reply. I am thankful to access a certain, 'XP bar,' currently as well!"
Please enjoy the remainder of your day and, if I may, please take care.<pre>

I found the problem! I was doing it all wrong! Or at least, it didn't work the way I tried first: which was: opening 'managing scripts', then adding a new script (at this point a kind of notepad application opens), then 'open file' en open the file, save it again and then close the window. But if I opened te script again for editing, the script was gone again!
Well anyway the simple solution was: dragging the downloaded file into the browser bar! Then a installation window opens, click install and it works!
Lo que me cuesta entender es el pasotismo del personal que trabaje para duolingo que a sabiendas que no ha sido nada popular el cambio que han realizado aun nos mantienen sin la barra de progreso a muchos usuarios de esta aplicacion, la verdad yo no soy nada bueno en informatica y no he podido volver a recuperarla, pero si les he escrito a estos señores y no han sido capaz ni siquiera de darme una respuesta :(
Thanks for the info of Tampermonkey, now I can enjoy again of the XP BAR, and for those that don't have any idea how that extension works, here is how I did it:
- Go to the tool bar of google chrome and click on extension.
- Click on search for more extension and write tampermonkey and install it
- Download the file that "th23x" gave us http://th23.net/wp-content/uploads//temp/th23_Duolingo.user.js.zip
- Open tampermonkey that will appear like a square with two circles inside and click on add new scripts
- Once you are there click on the tab of Utilities that is in the right and click import the file that you already download from the link.
- Go to the tab installed scripts and click on th23 Duolingo and select enable.
- Refresh Duolingo and you will finally have the XP BAR again.
I hope that it was useful. Thanks for your contributions thx23 and roxyrenders
I created a Chrome extension https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/duolingo-xp-bar/dkknkcpbgcaldcjpchgciginadhnapeh It uses the current language to translate the module
I still think that Duolingo should bring back the experience bar without the hassle of downloading scripts and implementing them into your browser. See my post for more details and our "petition": https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4890984$comment_id=4934406
How the hell do you install this?!
I tried and got as far as down loading it, and then nothing.
It doesn't install automatically like other user scripts, I found no set up guide to help me, it just sat there doing nothing. Any idea what went wrong?
By the way, I have greasemonky.
Thank you very much. You are both brilliant and kind .I may have to use tampermonkey through google chrome. It may be beyond me but I miss the bar so much I will have to give it a try. Great to have all you tech savvy people here to help the ones like me who are tech challenged.
Call me stupid - and it's probably because English is not my 1st language either -, but I just don't get it. I'm a complete noob when it comes to things like this. So I installed the add-on, I made this script and wrote "test" in every textbox and saved. I also downloaded that code as ZIP (but it won't open :/) and I just don't get how to fix this at all.
The basic steps are to (1) install the add on, which is greasemonkey for firefox, and (2) install the userscript. You don't have to write or download a new code, as the scripts are already prepared. Go to the wiki to find the userscripts.
Click in the left column of the wiki for each one that you want, click the "install" button, or if you don't find an install button, click "raw" (same thing). Wait a few seconds, click "okay", and it's done! Now the userscript will automatically work when you're using Duolingo.
The monkey head shows the first part is fine. Then pick the userscript for the progress bar from the wiki. Hmm I see what you mean, it opens a zip file, which happened to me before too and I'm not sure what I did.
The script doesn't open the box. Hopefully someone who knows the process with a zip file can comment.
