What do you want now? (Request extensions here)

Sadly it doesn’t seem to work anymore but thank you very much!

Here is the procedure to get the configuration that will do what you want.

You need to go to the setting dialog as follow:

Once in the settings you should create a new table. Don’t delete the existing tables because they will become handy eventually. To create the table you must go on the Tables tab, then click on the New button. A Table called <untitled> will show up. You should rename it to Vocabulary or whatever name you prefer using the Edit Table Name field…


Once this is done you should make the Vocabulary table the default table, that is the table that displays when you start Wanikani and when you refresh the browser. You do this by clicking the up arrow until the table is in the top position.


Then you need to configure filters. You must make sure the Vocabulary table is selected and then you go to the Filters tab. There you click on the Item Type cleckbox to enable this filter. You select Vocabulary to display the vocabulary items. You also click on the Level checkbox to enable this filter. Then you enter +0 to select the current level. It is important that you have the + sign, a plain 0 won’t work. You leave all the other filters checkboxes unchecked because otherwise these filters will get in the way. This configuration will select all vocabulary items for your current level.

Then you go on the Contents tab to select which information will be displayed in the table along with the vocabulary items. There are many options you can explore. I suggest you begin with the ones displayed below. It is important that you leave the Random Selection at 0, otherwise the table won’t display all vocabulary items.


I hope this configuration will suit your needs.


Thank you very much

I’m looking for a user script which will play the audio for a word multiple times (instead of just once) after I get it right in a review (to improve retention). Seen anything like this?

UPDATE: Never mind… I just realized I can just hit J and it’ll play again (and again and again if I want)

Now that I can play the audio easily J, I’d love a script which would enable the “Play audio” button after I guess the meaning correctly, but only if I’ve already answered the reading correctly too. :slight_smile:

There is this script which has the ability to auto play the audio on meaning if you already answered the reading


thank you!

WaniKani Review Audio Tweak is really helpful. The more times I hear the audio, the easier it is for me to remember.

Would love to have a similar script which plays the audio for Kanji (instead of vocab). Seems like this would help with retention as well.


Is there audio recordings for the kanjis somewhere? I don’t find any in Wanikani. Without such recordings I don’t see how such a script would be possible.

Is there an extension that allows you to only review items at different SRS levels? Sometimes I’ll try to do my Apprentice reviews multiple times a day but I’ll get bogged down by things I guru’d last week popping up again in my review pile.

Good point - that could be complicated. Could probably get some of them from the corresponding single-kanji vocabulary, but not all of them…

I was hoping perhaps this was a common request, and someone wanted it enough to do the work to find all the recordings… :slight_smile:

Have you checked out the self-study quiz script?

Maybe some reorder script would fit this request better. I don’t know them well enough to recommend one.

WaniKani SRS Reorder Button does the trick…

Although I tend to use Reorder Ultimate 2, and just sort by this level (prioritized by level) for this function. Be careful, however, this script is easy to abuse and get yourself in trouble (maybe true for all review reordering actually)


What’s I’d love for this is a review filter script which only shows the reviews which are apprentice 1 or 2 SRS levels, because you definitely want to review “this days” reviews more often than you want to review the entire pile.

And, such a script couldn’t get you in trouble, since it wouldn’t get any items into Guru. You’d still have to do the full review to progress…

I’m looking for a WaniKani dashboard Streak Counter userscript, which shows the number of days in a row which I’ve got my review count to 0. For me, this (reviews=0) is the #1 thing which keeps wanikani moving smoothly, and a streak counter would motivate me to hit it every day.

Does anything like this exist? I’m surprised there isn’t one of these already… maybe the data is hard to collect?

A different helpful streak counter might be “number of days in row that I’ve done at least N lessons” (say 10 lessons for example).

A similar counter is displayed in the heatmap script. But I think the streak is the number of days you have done at least one lesson. I don’t think you can configure it to N lessons. But you can have it to ignore for streak purposes the days where no lessons were available. There is a setting for this.

Edit: If you hover the mouse over a day in the heatmap you will see how many lessons were done that day. If you can’t find a better counter you may at least manually verify your current streak. This is not ideal but it may be better than being left without a counter.

Is there a way to learn a specific vocab/kanji/radical that’s locked, similar to “resurrecting” a burned item? Sometimes I encounter a word while reading and find that I will learn the kanji 30 levels later in WK, so I have to copy over the radical/kanji/word associated with it into a separate deck to be able to learn & review it now instead of waiting a year+. It’s a lot of wasted effort reviewing and maintaining multiple decks.

Worst case, you could edit the heatmap yourself for the N lessons thing.

Hijacking this thread for heatmap discussion. I’m not sure that this is a feature I want to keep in the new version; do you think it’s important to have?

Should this be a feature?
