"Discuss sentence" not working
I click discuss sentence button but nothing happens. Has that happened to anyone before? Is the problem caused by me or duolingo? How do I fix it if possible?
This is happening to me constantly! It is very frustrating! I have tried Safari on Mac OS X and IE, Chrome and Firefox on Windows 8.1. I restart the browser and comments are available for the first few sentences of each lesson, and then the button is inactivated until I restart the browser again. The comments are indispensable to the learning experience. I would love to see this fixed (and to be able to access the comments from the iPad app for that matter).
As of nov. 3rd 2017 I had the same problem, but I now have found the solution: IF YOU HAVE an ad-blocker, like AdBlock or uBlock activated, then the "DISKUSS" link will not function. Just unblock "duolingo.com" (the whole site), and everything works like a charm, including the ads :)
I concur, it has never been related to ad blockers in my case.
Actually, I haven't had this problem for a long time now, so I thought it was fixed. Except that sometimes when I click the DISCUSS button, a tab with no comments will be shown, as if nobody had ever commented the sentence, despite the presence of a number between ( ) next to DISCUSS. I'm not sure whether that's the same issue
I have the same issue.
I did some digging and it would appear that this is a server-side issue. I went through a lesson (French for English speakers, Adjectives-2/1, however I have noticed this in most if not all lessons) and pressed "Discuss sentence" after each part of the lesson, and a HTTP request is made to https://www.duolingo.com/sentence/something every time the discuss sentence button is clicked. The first occurrence I noticed of the button not working (Translate "Ils sont jolis."), this HTTP request returns a 404 and the dialogue box resulting in the discussion does not pop up, and no further discussions pop up after this, because no further HTTP requests are made on following parts of the lesson, even when the button is clicked. In other words, the first 404 found breaks the button for the rest of the lesson, and I have also noticed this behaviour for skill strengthening.
The aforementioned request is contained at the URL: http://pastebin.com/raw.php?i=TtSch7qY
(I hosted it on Pastebin because Duolingo was escaping the ampersand strangely, breaking the URL)
