Zotero main webpage shows all my items where some are classified in the subfolders and some are not.

I would like to see only unclassified items in the main page.

GitHub repository has two related issues:

...It's not currently possible to view unfiled items or duplicates in the web library. Adding these is planned but we don't have a firm date at this point...

  • @Asahiko great links. Also, remember that you can edit a post to improve it. See "When should I edit posts?" Excerpt: "to include additional [relevant] information only found in comments"
