All I get are the red lines around the words I click. But that's all.
Eugrus, are you getting the same problem as I showed early in this thread in this video?
Basically, from what I can tell, it seems like it takes forever to load if you have lots of LingQs and known words. And when I say forever, I mean entire minutes. This feature is excellent when it works, but unfortunately, when it takes minutes to load, it is useless.
This morning I was using the new Extension! :-(
My plan was to read this Text."21 consejos para evitar el estrés y sentirse bien"
I had problem to change the language from English to Spanish!!! 2 Min. the page was blocked.
I would like to read them "here". it was not possible.
so I had a look at my qick-import on LingQ. there I found the lesson
This was a process from total 5 Minutes!!!
to import the text with the old bookmarklet it needs only 1 minute! without searching the lesson in my imports!
My understanding is that this is a project started by one of our members, and completed by a LingQ programmer. It is not a priority right now. If it works for you fine. If it doesn't then just import the article. I don't think LingQ is going to spend any time on improving it right now.
BTW Jolanda, i went to the blog site you mentioned. I changed the language to Spanish, no problem. Then I killed the google translate pop up bar. (I would actually like to remove it permanently.) Then I pressed "LingQ here".
Nothing happened. I went to LingQ on another Tab and saw the article in the LingQ Task Bar. I opened the article I had just imported and was ready to go. This is a big advantage since it enables us to open a quick import article in another Tab, which the bookmarklet does not allow us to do. This way I can go back to original source and import another article if I want.
I immediately went back to the original blog site, and pressed LingQ Here again and all the highlighting was there and I was ready to go. It may be that you need to press LingQ Here twice, with a little interval in between.
Like most things it takes time to get used to. I am finding it really good for many articles I come across on the web.
That extension is just what I wished for, thanks a lot :)
I guess I´ll start using it in a month or so, when most bugs are fixed.^^
I suggest you use it now. I would not expect that much will change in a month.
This is a great idea and new initiative! I installed Chrome on a few computers just for this.
- the phrases collected for newly lingqed words are very short
Look forward to seeing this develop...
Good point keke. We'll see if we can grab a similar length phrase as we grab when you create LingQs on the site.
I could use this function last weekend, but I can't make it work today :(
When I click the extention, a pop up comes up and says: "Authorize to use extention". Then I click "ok" button in the pop up, box, It disappears.
@Steve and All "Then I killed the google translate pop up bar. (I would actually like to remove it permanently.) "
To disable the Translate Bar, go to Settings >> Advanced Settings (see the bottom of the Settings page) >> Languages >> and uncheck "Offer to translate pages that aren't in a language I read."
@yukiko - That seems strange. Works fine for me. Were you logged in to the site when you used it? You must be logged in for it to work.
Oops, I didn't log in when I tried yesterday. Thank you, Mark!
I think it would be great if this feature was worked on more as it's such a cool idea which I feel makes studying with lingq alot more practical. I've used it a bit and it's working fairly well. All though I think sometimes words are highlighted that I already know as "new words". Still, fingers crossed it can be a continually improving feature.
