  • [Recent Issues] shows a "wall" of cover images from the magazines in your library, most recently added first. Clicking on a cover image in the wall will open the magazine.
  • [RSS] RSS feed of recent downloads.

To the right of the buttons is a magazine selector This is used to search and add new magazine titles.

Below you will find the usual status selector, toggles, rows per page and results filter as described in the homepage.

  • [Active] Keep trying to find new issues of this magazine(s) and download new issues

In the table, clicking on the magazine cover image shows a larger image. The Status column has either [Show] or [Open] clickable buttons. [Show] takes you to a page with all issues of that magazine, [Open] (when configured) allows you to open a magazine if you only have one issue downloaded.
