I'm sure I saw this somewhere

extra buttons to mark all or some chapters as read/unread.

Damnit, guide on how to use img tags pls.
Feb 10, 2018
Maybe get the WASD keys to work the same as the arrow keys for left handed users.
Currently the AD keys work for page turning, but I was hoping for the WS keys to work for scrolling up and down.

Well, how about fixing the languages filter, presently it seems to... do nothing at all.
Jan 18, 2018
Can we add the title and chapter of the manga on the bottom of the page too or at least back to top button mmm...~?
It's kinda hard to navigate to other (not next or previous) chapter especially if you use long strip in mobile mmm...

I'd appreciate "Isekai" as a genre to filter by/search for
I know 90% of isekai already have the word isekai in their name which makes it easy to find them but i feel like the whole genre is so widespread currently that it deserves its own genre tag
Jan 19, 2018
1) I second the "Isekai" genre. There are just too many out there for it not to qualify as one. If added, I am certain that we can get the tags properly added in those titles currently onsite.

2) While I have no issue personally with hentai on the site, we may want to look at and decide if there are limitations on what should be allowed in that situation. There are some types (like lolicon) which may actually cause legal trouble depending on different laws. I know that it is definitely frowned upon here in the US, and there are cases where a person could be legally in trouble. Would be a good idea just to make sure since we don't want government authorities coming in and using that as an excuse to shut down this place, not to mention there are groups out there that routinely make it a habit to target sites that have that material for cyber-attacks.

I know we can filter by scanlation language, but I'd appreciate a "country of origin" filter of some sort (manga, manhwa, indo, etc), or maybe just an additional flag next to the manga title on the main homepage, just like we have on the page.

I'd love to be able to follow authors and artists, not just groups or manga.

Also seconding both the isekai genre tag and the content filtering. I'd love to be able to hide all, say, mecha manga, or horror manga - I know I'll never want to read them, so I don't need them cluttering up the site for me.

(Could we also have more variety in the manga status tags, beyond just 'ongoing' and 'complete'? I'm never sure if 'complete' means the manga's done being published or done being translated+uploaded; and it'd be helpful to have a per-language translation status tag (i.e. 'done in English' + 'still ongoing in Spanish' + 'no chapters in Indonesian' all simultaneously.)

The ability to have a clickable link to your MAL on your profile. Something that looks like the ones on manga pages.

Haven't seen it around yet but: A way to filter chapters by language, so you don't have to dive and select from a possibly big chapter list for the one in the language you prefer.
Mar 11, 2018
can we have a "Done Section" just like the "follow Section". some mangas don't have myanimelist or bakaupdates.

My biggest need/want for Mangadex is a "Preview" button for comment and forum text boxes. It's annoying to realize you fat-fingered a formatting block and have accept the mark of shame that is a "LAST EDITED x ago" stamp on your post.

What do you mean by fixing the filter Anomander? is it the chapter language, display language or profile language? all three seem to be working for me

I don't mind seeing various languages on a manga's page, but it would be nice if you could specifically filter your follows feed.

For long strip reading, would it be possible to load the pages closer to the start first, so it doesn't load 30~ images at the same time, or would the only method be just single image viewing and clicking between each image?
