How to add new words that are not already in system

I tried adding a new German word “Terminkalender” to a course I am trying to create. It doens’t appear to be in the system so I figure I could just put in the information myself and add it to the system. However, after putting in all the information and hitting the “Save and Continue” button, nothing happened. Is this the expected system behavior? Am I not allowed to add new words that’s not already in the system?

Thank you in advance for your response.


Hi Allen and welcome to the forum,

You should be able to add words to your own course. It’s usually helpful to add a second level before commencing, so that you get access to the Database button and other stuff.

I just created this one, selected the German database option and was able to add your word and definition ok. I have added you as a contributor so that you can go in and play around with it. I’ll delete the course later. Hope this helps.

Edit: Just an afterthought but did you click on the “+” sign before clicking on “Save and Continue”?

Hi Alan,
OMG. I am such a dumbass. I did not click on the “+” sign before I click on the “Save and Continue” button. I thought just by clicking on the save button the words will get saved.

Thank you so much for your response.

Not at all. It would help if they included a mention of that step in the “FAQ” section on adding words.
