I really need this add-on, please fix the problem soon!!
@Last comment: I had the exact same problem. You have to go to the Oxford Dictionaries' website, ask for a new API key, and then edit the addon file accordingly
cannot make flashcard or notetypes.
for example, i want to add this word"insect", system respond:
Traceback (most recent call last):

But I wonder how I could use this add-on? I'm newbie to Anki, really appreciate for your help!
It's more like a first working prototype. It was supposed to be made on a PWYW basis but it never happened and I pretty much abandoned the add-on.
I'm more interested in the addon for LDOCE, but it's been more than a year since I did something about it, but I hope it'll be done sooner than later.
As an alternative, maybe Fast Word Query can be of any help - https://ankiweb.net/shared/info/1807206748
This way, with the help of google translator, creating a database for English learners could take let's say a few hours (counting with manual corrections) instead of days.
Update: Originally I reported a minor bug here. The author fixed it and upload a new version in less than a day!
Thanks for the feedback! I've updated the add-on and the errors should be fixed by now.
The add-on is just an example of using Oxford Dictionaries API. It was supposed to be made on commission and maybe improved a little bit after I receive some feedback, but it looks like it won't happen and the add-on is pretty much abandoned as it's no use to me. Maybe something will change in a couple of months when I may complete most of my unfinished projects and Oxford Dictionaries API v2 will be released ("Oxford Dictionaries API v2 will be released Tuesday 16 April 2019. ... We will shut down the API v1 on Sunday 30 June 2019.").
