How to select the type of lesson

So I just reached level two and now my review options have opened up a lot. I have vocab from level one, and new radicals and kanji from level two. My issue is that when I click on review and start my session, it seems to select randomly what I’m studying. It set me on vocab when I wanted to take a peek at the new radicals. I’ve been poking around trying to figure out how to select what type of lesson (radical, kanji, or vocab) that I want to do but I’m still scratching my head. Sorry if this is a dumb question, and thanks for any help!

Hello! There is no functionality in Wanikani that lets you choose the order of reviews, however there’s a userscript that will let you choose the review order.

This is the tutorial for how to install userscripts

and here’s the link for the review order userscript

There’s a setting that specifies what order your lessons will come in. The default is by level and then type. So it will always do earlier levels first, and then within a level it will do radicals, kanji, and then vocab. So what you are seeing is the level 1 vocab, and once you finish those you’ll see the level 2 radicals. You can change this setting if you want to add some randomization, but you cannot select your lessons with vanilla WaniKani.

However, there is a script I built specifically for this use case. I used it to learn radicals, kanji, and vocab together all at the same time (I usually learned all the radicals right away since there aren’t that many at higher levels, 3 kanji, and 9 vocab per day). This script is much more flexible that Reorder Ultimate for the use case you’re describing.
