<10kB. Updated 2017-08-26. Supports both Anki 2.0.x and 2.1.x.
Frozen Card: an Anki add-on adds a deck option to deactivate Anki algorithm to keep cards new in the decks.
Note: This add-on works with both Anki 2.0 and Anki 2.1 (after Beta 13)
This add-on adds a deck option to deactivate Anki algorithm to keep cards new in the deck. So, Anki behaves as a simple flash card program in the deck.
Anki shows a card once a session whatever answer button is pushed. After you learn each card in the deck with this option, this add-on makes or keeps it new and push it to the new card queue.
When you learn all the card in a session, your learning ends. However, the new learning queue comes again when you come back to the deck list.
You might use Anki with this add-on in the way you would expect. However, please learn a part of your materials with the default setting (without this add-on) comparing with the Frozen Card settings. I'm sure that you would understand how Anki works and why we love Anki.

This add-on empowers the user. This effect of this add-on is definitely horrible for most users but sometimes there are special circumstances where it's useful. Thank you.
This is a great add-on and it works perfectly for my purpose. I'm using Anki for speech therapy for people who have aphasia, which comes after having a stroke or brain trauma. Spaced learning does not work. The reason being is that you have to practice speaking words for many many times before you learn how to vocalize the word. Anki spaced learning system really doesn't allow that to happen in an easy way. Without this add-on, this speech therapy program would never work properly and I would not be publishing it as a free program on the web. Thank you so much!
It freezes the order of the cards too: It doesn't matter if you have the 'Show new cards in random order' option enabled, with this plugin Anki will show you the frozen cards in the exact same order.
This is what exactly I am looking for. I am getting tired of spaced repetition because it takes so much time repeating again and again some cards, although I keep my deck size pretty small (about 10 cards). I just want to have a normal random picking up cards for quickly reviewing, especially for larger desk sizes. Thank you very much to bring this option available.
