"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 happens to me intermittently. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I haven't noticed a pattern yet.
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).
I've restarted my browser and computer and still get nothing when I click the discuss sentence button. The report problem button works though.
When I do a lesson it'll work, but if I go back to https://www.duolingo.com/practice it won't. Seems to happen at random locations, but it's persistent at those locations/lessons. I'm pretty sure once I finish this practice lesson then next one will work fine, but I'll have to see.
From time to time, I doesn't work for me either. However, the “Report a Problem” button always works.
This issues persists as of 12/24/16...more than a year after reported is ridiculous.
Just stopped about a week ago (end of Feb 2017), but was fine before that. The DIscuss Sentence button highlights, but no action occurs.
18.04.2017, this keeps happening to me from time to time. I don't know how to reproduce it
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 :)
Ah - thanks for that - I do indeed have an ad-blocker, so I'll try what you suggest. Thanks for the tip.
I don't have an ad-blocker. It's an intermittent problem. Some days it's fine, some days not.
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
Dude, thanks!!! I put Duolingo on the "don't block" or something like that list on my adblocker, and now the conversation button works!!
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)
Another place 404 errors show up is if you search for a particular discussion from the discussion tab (type the sentence in the search box). Many of the links in the search results take you to a 404 page.
It is most likely because the discussion was taken down for spam, or irrelevance.
I noticed the same problem today with the Italian course ( the report a problem button wasn't working, too).
The discuss button does not appear in the app. Before that, I couldn't reply any comment.
I notice that this seems to occur after I exit out of the comments by clicking on the background rather than by pressing the X.
It used to work for me but stopped altogether around the time other changes were made in Duolingo (about March 2017?).
Had no problems on my Greek course until a couple of weeks ago but now the button frequently doesn't work and sometimes a 404 comes up. The report a problem button works up to a point, but typically doesn;t have all the options available.
