How's everyone like the new layout?

I don’t use it to really look at the readings but for some reason I really like knowing which set of kanji or which set of radicals is coming. It’s weird I know but I like it haha

Yep. Mine is different too.

Is someone abusing the reorder script? :stuck_out_tongue:

Honestly, it kind of sucks. I prefered the ultimate timeline in that top slot. With its sliders and different viewing options, it was more useful than the new Review Forecast. This has fundamentally decontented my experience.

I like the illustrations on the two new buttons, but they’re so huge and dominating now, and it’s awkward how they return to the old design when I scroll down. If that design wasn’t good enough to keep, why have it all? The original iteration of those buttons when I started using Wanikani was medium, which was best, then they became tiny, and now they’re enormous. And why is lessons the same pink as kanji, while review is the radical blue? It implies a relationship between the two areas where there really is none.

Sorry to be so negative, but you asked.

Here’s mine in its mobile ridiculousness:

Honestly, this is why I don’t really use the site itself. The best thing they ever did with site layout was to make an API.

Honestly, I wish there was a setting/option to give the whole site a more “professional” theme & feel to it. I’m here to learn and reinforce a language; I don’t care at all for the art and color palette that looks like it belongs in a preschool.

I use @valeth’s [Userstyle] WaniKani Breeze Dark, but every time there’s a change to the site, someone has to go and patch the custom theme because WK doesn’t have its own dark (or even just neutral) theme available.

 


Edit: As of the time of this post, the author of this theme/style is updating and maintaining it :heart:

If not, try opening it in private mode. This will limit a few possibilities:

  1. User scripts (I’ve heard these can cause style issues)
  2. Any cache content at all (like everything)

If this doesn’t work, then it may be a weird specific reason. If you’re on an older browser (IE), it may have style issues. If you have an antivirus, or an internet filter it may be blocking one or more of the style scripts. Try finding out and googling a solution.

No scripts, installed. I started yesterday and it was fine. I’ll check a private mode? But that seems weird. Did this update hit in the last 12 hours?

Yes. If not private mode, maybe try the other things I mentioned.

It’s…fine? I prefer the Ultimate Timeline, because in addition to when reviews are coming up, it shows which items are upcoming as well. The hover over a section ability (in the UT) is super underrated, as well as the scalable timeline.

Like others have said, the buttons are way too big. I didn’t mind them being in the top bar before. I’m also not sure the search bar does anything at the moment (it doesn’t search for anything for me at least).

The site is still easy to use and understand, so I don’t mind it. I’m hoping for some of those improvements though ^^^^

Private window didn’t help. I’m using Chrome, in the most updated form. The computer is a couple years old, but that shouldn’t be affecting how Chrome displays content. I’m stumped. So I guess I hate the update. Haha

I like the changing pictograms on the lessons/reviews buttons. Makes me want to make crabinator happy again

Can you hit F12 to open the console and see if there are any errors? Might need to refresh after opening the console to get all the information. If there are any errors, paste them here.

Yeah, there are a ton of errors.

Not a fan. The buttons are so huge but the text is so small, I wish I could just replace the entire image with one big number saying the number of lessons/reviews. And there’s no longer any indicator as to when the next review is; I have to parse it out of the list on the right.

It feels like it’s much more cluttered but shows less information than it used to.

On that note, anyone working on a script to bring back the old dashboard yet? :wink:

I like this one better. Great improvement! It’s a perfect mix of function and form :smile:

Honestly, I like the cartoons a lot, they’re really cute and I appreciate that they change based on the number of reviews or lessons you have.

I also like the forecasting system because I don’t have any scripts installed and now I can better plan out when to study for max efficiency.

I’m enjoying it. The forecast is a great addition, I think. I’m having mixed feelings on the positioning of the reviews and lessons buttons. It’s possible that it’ll be better once I’m accustomed to it. I did appreciate the easily-visible number of reviews for the next hour, so that is one aspect I miss. Overall I definitely think this is an improvement.

I looks like those might be warnings, not errors (based on a quick google search). You can filter the console to only show errors if you want. There’s a good chance I can’t help anyway, but getting this information here to the devs might allow them to help you tomorrow.
