    The Reading List is an easy way to keep track of the novels that you’re reading. The Reading List is disabled by default so you must enable it by clicking on “Global Settings” (located in the top right hand corner) and checking “Enable Reading List” on the Reading List page.

    This tutorial will be picture heavy.

    Global Settings (Settings are applied to all lists)
    • Enable Reading List - This enables the reading list feature.
    • Highlight 'My Status' Release - This highlights your current status in the novel you're reading.
    • Highlight 'New' Releases - This will highlight any chapters you haven't read.
    • Highlight 'Read' Releases - This will highlight all chapters you've read.
    • Enable Quick Add to Reading List - Quick way to add novels to reading list.
    • Enable Public List - Makes your reading list public.
    • Display Favorites List - You can pick and choose which reading list you want to display on the main release page.
    • Export Reading List - This exports your reading list to a xml file. This is for backup purposes only.

    Enable Quick Add to Reading List allows you to pick which reading lists to add your novel to. The oldest chapter is added to this list.

    Your favorite lists are displayed on top of main release page.

    List Settings (Individual settings)
    • Disable Highlighting - This disables all highlighting features. Normally used for dropped reading lists.
    • Hide from Main Release Page - This hide all the series from the main release page. Normally used for dropped reading lists.
    • Enable Manual Reading List - Switches from normal to manual reading list.
    • Enable List Icons - Enables the list icons feature. The icon follows you everywhere.
    • List Sorting - Allows you to sort your list by alphabetical, unread or latest release.

    Yeah because it didn't have many features. Once you get used to the current reading list, it should be better.

    Is it possible so that you can change it so that you can use the old feature or not?

    All old feature is still available, just the step to activate it is kinda different. For example, select quick add at global section to add series to custom list.

    It's just that "Series Finder" doesn't have the ability to exclude the new lists.

    For adding items into reading lists, the first option adds based on the latest release rather than first chapter, though I'm fine with that. I don't see the 2nd method of adding items to the reading list(I'm using Firefox).
    Btw, how do I add novels that "do not" have any released chapters? Say, for example... Campione?

    I had a Hide List. Now it's gone. I have to create a new list to hide releases again. :(

    Tony's working on that. Or you can add releases to the database for a quick and dirty work around.

    Yup. Just don't play with any of the settings and don't create any new lists.

    It will work exactly as how that old reading list did.

    Is there a way to import the novels that we have from our old list to the new list?
