The only change you will see is that your browser will say app.memrise.com at the top instead of www.memrise.com when you are doing anything you need to be logged in for. It’s exactly the same software and data so everything will work the same. You don’t even have to remember to go to the new home either - you’ll be smoothly redirected there.
We’re making this change so that next month we can switch https://www.memrise.com to host a new, faster static website, which will describe what Memrise does better for new users. This will be maintained by our marketing department, meaning the web team can have our attention entirely on improving the product.
The final switch to app.memrise.com will be in one week’s time, on 4th August 2020.
On that day, you will need to log in again on app.memrise.com, if you haven’t already. To make up for this one time need to log in again, we’ve already changed it so logins last for 1 year rather than 2 months - so overall that should be less logging in.
a bit confused here, will the app.memrise.com stay with us “forever”, or it will disappear after you migrate the memrise.com to a new site? (i am askinb because i want to know if I have to adapt my userstyles to this new address)
Yes, we’re effectively splitting the current website into two.
All the parts you use when you’re logged in - the learning sessions, dashboard, course editor etc - are permanently moving to app.memrise.com and staying exactly as they are.
The remaining pure content parts - the home page, pages describing Memrise courses, the contact page, the about page and so on will stay on www.memrise.com, but we will be completely updating them in a month or two.
(There is one confusing exception to the above - the pages describing community generated courses will stay as they are, and will be on app.memrise.com even when you’re logged out, e.g. for Google search results)
I just did it right now. Open Tampermonkey dashboard, then open each userscript and look for (Ctrl+F) “memrise.com”. Then change www.memrise.com to app.memrise.com. It’s on the top part of the script, it should look like this:
Sorry folks! I should have added a “How to …” but had to go out! Basically, for the “All Typing Script”, I only needed to change “www” to “app” in two lines at the head of the script and then ‘save’ the changes by clicking on “File” and then “Save”.
i’ve done that, still not working, i see the old bloated page that enraged me - and continues to do so - since it came around (i am using solely the web, do not need streak, clock, huuuuge tabs, coz i learn lots of courses
are there any other changes made to the UI? i do not know what to do to make the scripts work…
edit: @kaimi, i’ve done now somehow, with stylus, don’t even know how i’ve made it! i had previously replaced everything, but ubuntu is still tricky soemtimes
