Is it possible to set serialized articles to auto update new installments?

I often use this app to listen to updating stories. (Such as those on fanfiction.net)

Right now for finished stories, I export the stories as epubs and open them with the app. And for updating ones I typically manually share to a list.

Is there a way to set it up so that updates are automatically shared to the relevant list?

Thanks!

    There is a good solution for this in the latest version of @Voice, just added this (version 23.2.3 or any higher):
     
    Open the Reading list list screen in @Voice, then create a new reading list for your novel, e.g. in this example I'll use “Evil Eye” web novel from royalroad.com. You can name the newly created list with the title of your novel, here "Evil Eye". Then press menu – Paste links, you may paste a list of links or CSV formatted lines. Or you may just paste a web address of a web-novel chapter list, like https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/41836/evil-eye. Press Next – it shows you ALL links found on that page, so enter filter:
     
                    /evil-eye-hexcaller/chapter/
     
    And press the filter button on right – now the list will contain only the chapters you want. Press Next again and then select or create an empty folder for this web novel. Press Import Links button. You’ll have all your chapters on one list.
     
    When it’s time to update with newly added chapters, simply press Reading list menu – Paste links. All the data will be remembered there (the web address of the chapter list, the filter etc.), so press Next, Next – on the last screen make sure that “Skip links already downloaded into this folder” is checked (it is by default), press Import Links button. The new chapters are added.

    This is awesome! Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for. Almost considering deleting my library and starting fresh. Total game changer.

    So I just went to use it. Unfortunately the site i wanted to use doesn't have a table of contents. Just a suggestion. It would be really neat to be able to use a regex pattern to auto-generate the urls to be included.

    Please give me the exact address of that site and explain what exactly you would like to capture. If you want, you may reply by email, instead of posting here.
     
    The current "Paste links" interface can use RegEx to filter existing links that you paste into the app, or open from some local file or web page. However I'm not sure how you would like to use RegEx to download chapters without a list of links...
