    You can't AFAIK. The default is there due to some Database necessities for things to not break IIRC.

    You can't remove it. The default list is where all new novels are added if you tick a checkbox by a release on the main or novel's pages.
    Just rename it to one of your other lists, move the novels and remove the old list.

    Is there any way to filter out a specific translator from my reading list? I don't want Ziru's-80-chapters-behind releases of LDM to mess up what is the latest chapter I've read from the novel.

    Didn't work.
    It says "removed on Novel Updates Main Page", not "on the reading list", so I guess it's impossible.
    But thanks anyway.

    Huh, I thought this carried over to Reading List....

    Guess not...
    Still, you can use it to clean up the novel page's release section.

    You could kinda hide* Ziru's releases on your reading list with uBlock Origin, but they won't get replaced with other group's (the field will be empty), so you won't always know if there was a new release for the group you're following...

    So your best choice is to check the novel's page.

    Or use https://www.novelupdates.com/series-filtering/
    If you add a novel there, the releases will always be one click away. Similar to Reading List/Novel's Page, yet better (if you add only one).
    And you could always use uBlock to get rid of Ziru's releases there:
    Code:
    ##tr:has-text(/Ziru/)
    Just try to block any element on NU and replace it with this line.


    ~~
    *Just in case you wanted to try having an empty field on your reading list instead of ZIru's release:
    Code:
    ##:xpath(//td[.//a[contains(@href,"://zirusmusings.com")]])
    This hides the entire field (release's name/link, the book icon, edit notes).
    If you want to keep the icons:
    Code:
    ##:xpath(//a[contains(@href,"://zirusmusings.com")])
    Release's name/link will disappear, even in the book popup. It will NOT get replaced with Corona's.

    So, like I said, mostly useless.

    How do I edit my status on my reading list? It looks totally different than the screenshots shown. If I click the closed book icon on the right of my reading list's series, I can choose which chapter I am on. But I accidentally hit the top button which sets my status to the latest released chapter when I'm actually about 30 chapters from the latest chapter. Since I'm "up to date" the closed book icon doesn't show up.

    Just go to the novel page and click this checkmark like it's shown on the screenshot above.

    This is how the different pages look to me:
    [​IMG]
    Other than the reading list, all the stuff on the other pages are just links. The series title, my status, and latest release on the reading list are just links. The checkbox on the left of the reading list is just for deleting or moving series to another list. The empty page icon on the right of the reading list are for notes (I've never used them). The closed book icon is for editing my status, but I can't go backwards (choose an older release for my status) if I misclicked.

    make sure you have "Enable Reading List" option ticked.

    Thanks, now it works. I assumed it was already enabled since I actually have a reading list.

    Hi @Tony what does "hide from public reading list" in the "list settings" do?

    it is a per-list setting. what it does is it hides that particular list from being shown in public if people click this link on your profile

    however, that setting depends on this option in 'Global Settings'

    unless you have this ticked, all your reading lists remain private (default).

    series filtering is for you to have quick access to several latest chapters of a select number of novels, to a total of 200 releases (combined). it will also create an RSS Feed link for easy update notification (assuming you know what 'RSS Feed' is)

    Umm… i think i get it. Is it the same as “favorites” on the main release page? And I don’t know what is RSS feed. Sorry. Oh and one last thing. Where can i find the recommendation lists that i followed ? Thank you!
    Edit: I’ve found it! Sorry and thank you so much!

    same location on the public list, just different tab. in other words, your profile.
    either access it from the main site by clicking on your username --> User Profile,
    or just click the 'Link' like the screenshot i posted above (circled in red)
