I don’t know much about webpages, or what could be causing this, but maybe next time it happens try to open the console (F12) and see if there are any errors?
To make that suggestion work, you will have to open the console window (
Ctrl + Shift + K for a direct hotkey in Firefox) before the issue happens, click the settings icon in the top right and select “Persist Logs” in the dropdown.
In its default state the log is cleared on any page navigation, including reloads.
Thank you for the suggestion - I’ll try that next time the issue happens ^__^"
@wojtek just so you know, you’re not alone: got the same problem recently. I go through the first batch of lessons, go to the quiz and on entering the first (or maybe second) answer I’m getting thrown back to the lessons I just did.
with “?user-response=[answer I gave]” added to the url
Also using Firefox and scripts in Tampermonkey; though somehow until now it worked just fine and that problem only somehow started at lvl7; might be it only happens w/ new kanji? 'cause i was thrown back when doing the quiz on them before, but new voc worked fine just now.
exactly - it adds this
user-response=… URL parameter.
Do you use any particular script?
I tried monitoring it with DevTools but it seems that each time I start lessons with those the problem doesn’t manifest itself.
I got quite an assembly of userscripts by now. ^^’ Though I had most of them already working before that problem came up. The most recent added were Confusion Guesser and Vertical Reviews. Would that match with any of your scripts?
All other scripts I already installed at around lvl5 and didn’t have any problems until now.
Both of those scripts should only run on the review page and not the lesson page, so they cannot be the cause.
I feel like this happens to me sometimes. I think I usually press a little green button at the bottom of the screen when it does (this fixes the problem for me), but it happens pretty rarely, so I’m not sure it’s the same thing.
The problem in my case is that it’s completely random. And possibility of script messing up with it is small as turning it off and on again (any of the scripts, just to eliminate the culprit) makes the page work just fine (same as opening DevTools).
Regarding study section I have quite some scripts enabled: OF, Advanced Context sentence, Lesson Examples Audio, Lesson Hover Details, Item Hoover details, Katakana Madness, Pitch Info, Kanjidamage Mnemonics, Lesson Filter, Niai Similar Kanji, Keisei Phonetic-semantic, User Synonyms 2, OpenFramerowkJLPT.
And also some UserCSS (character background and blurring kanjis/radicals on vocabulary/kanji so I can try to figure out what makes particular character on my own first.
I just remebered that the lesson filter-script get’s also set back. Again happend when the quiz for new lessons started with kanji, but was fine for the second batch with vocab.
I tried to see if the console did log any errors and the first one displayed was
Uncaught TypeError: n is undefined
evaluate WaniKani Katakana Madness.user.js:219
So for the next level I’ll try to disable Katakana Madness to see if I still got the problem then. For now I got no kanji left. But I’ll see wether it happens with vocab, too, on the first lessons’ batch.
Oh, this is starting to make sense - because the “randomness” may be happening only when you level-up. I’ll definitely check that. I still have 33 vocab from the current level so at my pace I’ll be able to check it in ~6 days.
mh… had no problem with this when learning new vocab right now.
And no exceptions in the DevConsole? It still working ok for me and I’m still waiting for kanji lessons.
ah… >.< forgot to check that. I’ll have a look at that tomorrow when I do the next lessons. I hope I’ll remember to copy that so I can compare with what’s displayed when it happens again.
So I finally got new lessons (radicals and kanji) and… everything is working just fine. Ehhh… =,=
Same here. ^^ So maybe something lvl7 specific?
Well, I’m fairly certain it was happening with level 6 (and maybe 5). Right now I finished kanji of lvl7 just fine. Reeeally weird.
Hi, this happened to me as well this morning. Here’s what I got from console right before reloading.
Maybe corrupted data?
I think answerChecker script is a general script (?) one of userscript that use it Wanikani Double-check.
Tried to clear website data but it doesn’t work. I looked for the error log, and now it’s from KanjiDamage mnemonics for WaniKani. Disabling this userscript and now it’s working fine for the review.
For lessons I tried to disable Katakana Madness and it works fine now. I installed Katakana Madness few days ago, I’m pretty sure there’s something there.
So actually this issue has been raised while ago [Userscript] WaniKani Katakana Madness - #52 by mickos
It happened for me yesterday but only once so I didn’t get any traces.
I still have kanjidamage and katakana madness enabled and it works for me fine.
