Old User Having Difficulty with WaniKani Scripts

I’m sorry in advance, I know that my answer lies somewhere in the forum but I’m having trouble finding what I’m looking for. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than me could help me out or point me in the right direction.

I used to use WaniKani a couple years ago, then I joined a school in Japan so I dropped it. Turns out the way they teach in school here is awful, so I’m coming back, but my scripts are all messed up. I uninstalled everything and went through the forum and reinstalled the ones I thought I had had prior, but it seems a lot of them are kind of… not working at all? Or am I doing something wrong?


Quite a few of them are working as intended, but the two that I really enjoyed that helped my pace (and made WK a LOT less frustrating) was Double-Check or the one that automatically inputs your answer without hitting enter.

I don’t really care which one, but I would really like one of them to work. My biggest issue with WK is really just my issue, but WK makes it so much more punishing; I have a really bad old keyboard that sometimes just doesn’t register certain keystrokes. When I have hundreds of reviews and I’m missing like 20% of them because of this (also my fault for going quickly, I understand that, but I don’t want to have to triple check every single review when I have hundreds and also my work and my schoolwork to do) it’s incredibly frustrating.

Does anyone know how to get DoubleCheck to work, or know the name of the other script I’m looking for?

[All of my scripts are fully updated, including OpenFramework, and I’m running it on a compatible browser]

DoubleCheck works fine for me. There nothing special to do except these two things:

  • Make sure that Open Framework is in the first position in your Tampermonkey dashboard. It should be version 1.1.7.
  • Make sure you have the latest version of Doublechecked installed, that is 3.1.12.

If these steps don’t solve your issue your should give more details on what is going wrong. What are your symptoms?

Also, for Double-Check, go into the Settings menu (via the Gear menu in the upper-left corner of the Reviews page) to make sure you have the options you want for correcting answers. There are 3 main options: Retype, Mark Correct, and Mark Incorrect.

If you continue having trouble, open the Javascript console (press F12 and click on the Console tab), and post any errors you see there.

If you don’t mind, could you elaborate a bit on what kind of school and the problems with their teaching methods?

I’m hoping to someday be able to go to a language school in Japan - no clue as to which one, though.

Sorry to hijack but I didn’t like how kanji was taught in my language school either, it was from a textbook where we wrote out the kanji 5 times and did a few questions (it was the Kanji Master textbooks if you’re curious) and we did anywhere from 3-8 kanji a day depending on where I was in the program. I definitely did not learn a lot from that lol most of what I picked up regarding kanji was from reading exercises in class. We also did a kanji test once a week, I usually got 100% on them but can’t remember much even though it wasn’t even a year ago!

I started WK because every student I met at that school who was good at applying kanji (during in class reading) either used WK or heisig before starting the school/to supplement their learning.
