What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

I would like a script that displays the items in SRS stage Apprentice I, with each item a clickable link to the item page. This could be a table similar to the default tables found on the WK dashboard. Or in the (preferred) alternative this could be expanding the self study script with a button that goes to the current item page when reviewing this item.

I have found that items that stay in Apprentice I without moving to Apprentice II are items I didn’t learn properly in lessons. I wish to go over that list and memorize the items mnemonics again. I also want to be able to write my own mnemonics in the notes section of the item page. These activities require access to the item page.

Many thanks to whoever is willing to pick up this request.

Edit: I have found a satisfactory workaround. I no longer need this. Many thanks to whoever has been willing to pick this up.

Use the Double-Check script instead of other ‘ignore’ scripts, and turn on Mistake Delay in the settings. It prevents the double-tap ‘enter’ by ignoring a second press of the enter key for about 1.5 seconds when you make a mistake.

(As always, just be careful to only use it for true typos, not for knowledge mistakes.)


Looking for voice recorder with echoing and machine-based rating. – during WaniKani lessons.

Thanks for “Later Crabigator” - I love that feature. Would love it if hitting return (empty guess) was the same as hitting the later button :slight_smile: Tsurukame has something similar in beta.

I have updated the script. The code of version 1.1 now contains a section

	// settings //

	const SKIP_WHEN_ANSWER_EMPTY = false;


near the top. If you change false to true, it should click the Later button for you if you submit an empty answer. I hope it works – I haven’t tested it much.

I am using Dashboard Leech Tables. Big thanks to whoever maintains it. I love this very useful script.

In the settings, is it possible to arrange the parameter ‘Leech threshold’ to accept a real number? I think the optimal value for me is a real value between 1 and 2 but the current UI forces a drop menu of integers.

Thanks! Works like a charm!

I tried making my own userscript and it works, but I’d like someone who knows what they’re doing to correct it :slight_smile:
It is just one line to replace the link when you click on the homepage logo. I want it to take me to the forum (because I’m already on the homepage, I don’t need the logo to link to the homepage…)

// @require http://code.jquery.com/jquery-3.5.1.js
$('a[href="/"]').prop('href', 'https://community.wanikani.com/');

But I know only enough to be dangerous (i.e. copy from stackoverflow until something goes horribly wrong). I tried without jquery using getElementById or getElementsByClassName but I couldn’t get that to work.
Is there a better/safer/more elegant way? Thank you for your time!

What you did works just fine. You don’t need to require jQuery, though, since WK already uses it. A better selector (instead of 'a[href="/"]') would be '.logo__link', or perhaps '.global-header .logo__link', so that you are sure you’re only replacing the correct link.

Without jQuery you could do something like this

let url = 'https://community.wanikani.com/';
let elem = document.getElementsByClassName('logo__link')[0];
// Alternatively
// let elem = document.querySelector('.global-header .logo__link');
elem.href = url;

After some digging in the forums, I found this script by @Kumirei:

It sets a lock based on your number of apprentice items, not on the number of lessons you have already done for the day, but I think that’s even better. Absolutely worth trying if you have too many apprentice items!


Is there an extension that will make you answer the alternative meanings of a vocab or kanji?Kind of like how when you accidentally put in the wrong reading the bar will jiggle. I think this might be helpful as personally it is otherwise hard for me to remember alternative meanings as well as readings with certain kanji and vocab.

I’d like to see my correct % over the last 1 - 7 days. Is there a script like that out there? Is it even possible?


I don’t recall seeing such a script. This is something that I will implement in the next Heatmap update, though


Is there anything like Wrong of the Day, but for lessons?

What does that even mean?

Sorry, should have been more specific. It’s a script. I’ve linked it my original post.

I know of the script, but what would it mean for lessons?

You’re right again, it’s not quite the same. Well, I like to review my lesson queue after doing lessons. But after starting a new “lesson” session Wanikani is emptying Lessons Summary from the last session. Unfortunately, the summary is cleared also when refreshing the page (my internet connection is quite unstable so I often have to start the session again). If I do lesson in 3 batches 5 lessons each and my internet connection drops in the last batch, then the summary won’t include lessons from the first 2 batches.

I could set my session to 15 items, but I’d prefer not, because the number of lesson I do each day vary. If they’re difficult I stop at 10. But if they’re easier I do more.

Hope that explains what I meant.

There are two scripts I can think of that may do what you want. Both scripts share a Recent Lessons filter that will select lessons taken within a configurable number of hours.


The first script is the Self-Study Quiz which will setup a quiz session to review your items. The second script is Item Inspector which will display the items in a table. You can setup the table to display the reading and meaning of the items in a tooltip for ease of studying. Disclosure: I am the author of Item Inspector.


If you just want to see the items that you have done then the Heatmap can show you a summary for the day if you click on the day’s square
