There are three main ways to view your content: Table View, Poster View, and Card View. Each has its own style and options for making it your own.

Table View - Organised Lists

In Table View, your content is displayed in neat lists, like rows on a spreadsheet, offers a structured, tabular presentation of your tracked content. This view offers an organized way to browse your content.
It's particularly versatile as it comes in two variations:
Modern View: This presents your content with a contemporary style look, making it easy to read and navigate.
Modern View (TV Shows)
Retro View: This style is a bit old-school, If you prefer a nostalgic vibe, this option takes you back in time with its classic design.
Retro View (Anime)
Common Toggle Feature in Movies, TV Shows, Anime.
Toggle Filters in Table View
  • No Borders: Enabling this option will remove the borders around each item in the Table View. This creates a seamless, borderless look, providing a clean and modern appearance to your tracked content.
  • Compact View: By selecting Compact View, you're choosing a condensed layout. This layout reduces the spacing between items, allowing you to see more content on a single screen. It's an excellent choice if you prefer a more compact and information-dense view.
  • Hide Airing Status: If you decide to hide the airing status, it means that information about whether a TV show or anime is currently airing or not will be concealed. This can help declutter your view, especially if you're primarily interested in completed series.
  • Airing Status After Title: This customization lets you adjust the display of the airing status. You can choose to have this status information either displayed before or after the title of the TV show or anime. This flexibility allows you to position this information in a way that's most convenient for you.
  • Hide Position Rank: Enabling this filter will remove rank positions from the Table View. Rank positions are numerical rankings that indicate the popularity or rating of a show. If you prefer a cleaner view without these rankings, this option is ideal.
  • Hide Watchlist Icons: When you enable this option, any icons related to your watchlist will be hidden. This can help reduce visual clutter, particularly if you have a substantial watchlist.
  • Hide Year Info: If you'd rather not see the year information associated with each TV show or anime, you can hide it. This declutters the view, making it easier to focus on other details.
  • Year After Title in Table: This customization allows you to rearrange the placement of the year information. You can choose whether the year is displayed before or after the title of the TV show or anime, depending on your preference.
  • Hide Poster Image: Enabling this option removes poster images from the Table View. This results in a text-based view without visual representations of each show.
  • Hide Type: The content type, such as whether a show is a TV series, movie, or anime, can be concealed with this filter. This is useful if you're primarily interested in the names and details of the shows without their content type.
  • Hide My Personal Rating: Enabling this option keeps your personal ratings private. Others won't be able to see your ratings for each show when this filter is active.
  • Hide Rating: This filter hides general ratings for each Movie or TV Show or Anime. If you prefer not to see user-generated ratings, you can enable this option.
  • Hide DVD Date: By activating this filter, DVD release dates will be removed from the display. This can be helpful if you're primarily interested in other information about the shows.
  • Full Memo Text: Enabling this filter displays complete memos or notes for each item. This ensures that you can view and access all the memo text associated with your tracked content.
