Sharing "Next" feature problem and Importing Links reversible links

Hi
Hope you are doing well.
I have three 'issues' which are kind of similar in nature so I thought I will make one post instead of three, hope that it's fine.
 
1. When sharing a link from a website with the "Follow "next" links" setting enabled it does not always follow all the way through to the end, it appears to be random how many it does at a time.
Example:https://novelfull.com/martial-peak/chapter-2078-dao-source-pill.html follows next until https://novelfull.com/martial-peak/chapter-2083-help-me.html, and not until the end which currently is https://novelfull.com/martial-peak/chapter-2089-request.html.
 
2. Due to the time it sometimes takes to import when "Follow "Next" links" is enabled I wondered if we can limit how many times it should follow next?
 
3. When importing links to the reading list some websites show the latest article on top, is there a way to reverse the sequence, I know I can manually do this but it is kind of laborious with some that have 1000's of chapters.
Example: https://boxnovel.com/novel/plague-doctor(Sharing from this site does not follow "Next" at all)
 
The examples above are random ones I found whilst testing out when writing this.
Thanks for the help and the brilliant app.

    Follow Next links is meant only for short articles, which are sometimes split into 2-3 parts, maybe several parts. It's not possible to follow them for dozens, or hundreds of chapters of e-novels. Instead create a reading list for such novel and use "Paste links" function on Reading List menu to download your chapters.

    Thanks for the reply, the "Paste Links" function has the problem that I mentioned above that it downloads the articles in reverse on some websites.
     
    In some cases the "follow next" does download 80 or more chapters, the most was a split article with 11 or 12 pages.
     
    I checked through the forums and manual which is why I am trying the reading list with paste link function but manually reversing the sort from old to new would take as much time as sharing it one by one from the website itself.
     
    For now, I am doing this in-between articles or after I finished the current list.
    Just tried a hail mary that something might be in place already for the problems mentioned that I missed.
    Thanks again for the response, will keep going as I have till now.

    It does not matter in which order it downloads, you have a Sort button on top of the reading list screen, so sort it in the correct order. Either sort by name, if names are consistent, like "Chapter 139 - blah blah", or if not, sort in reverse order by file date/time, if they really are downloaded in reverse order.
     
    Or sort manually with the hand icon at right of each item. I will not "fix" in any way the follow next function, it's not designed for this purpose.

    Thanks, that works perfectly, don't know how I missed that.
    Feel like an idiot.
    Didn't say you have to "fix" it, just mentioned the inconsistent behavior which I saw whilst using the app.
     
    Which is sometimes it doesn't follow at all, other times 4 chapters, and other times 80 chapters, I thought it might be caused by the link for next or something in the header causing it to stop and that it might be due to some unexpected characters.
    I knew I was using it in an unintended way and just thought the added feature might be cool to have.
    Regardless though, thanks again for your help.
    Hope you have a lovely day.
