Wikiwand Website & Extensions

  1. Get rid of comments (facebook or otherwise).

    Comments are a totally unnecessary bloat feature. It will destroy the UX as it adds nothing to the experience one looks for when visiting wikipedia. What people think about wikipedia articles is irrelevant. If there is a factual inaccuracy they can update the article otherwise what else is there to say?

    Bookmarking is now available in Wikiwand!
    1. To add the current page, click the “Bookmark” icon in the toolbar.
    2. To add a snippet of text to bookmarks, select some text and click the “Bookmark” icon that pops up on the left.
    3. You can now also hover over any link, and click “Add to bookmark” in the hovercard.

  4. Stop popping up an ad encouraging me to install the Wikiwand extension when I already have it installed.

    I have been experiencing this with with Firefox for several weeks now. All pop-ups annoy me, since I must take to the trouble to dispose of them; but this one is especially annoying because it is arising on Wikiwand pages which I am getting because the extension is already installed! I have version 3.1.1.

  5. add disambigution feature for German, too

    The disambigution feature does not work for other languages, at least not for German: http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Schweizer i.e. I CANNOT reach the disambigution page without manually editing the url. For me, this is a dealbreaker at the moment!

    (Also, I think it should be more prominent, but that's a design question)

  7. Allow accessing the site even without an extension

    I cannot comprehend why you won't let people just browse wikipedia through your site without installing any extensions.

    At first I thought this was because you wanted to save bandwidth, but clearly not; your extension still serves me your page.

    I have to wonder whether this mandatory extension is part of some monetization strategy you have in mind.

  9. Reduce the line length in wider screens

    The line length is often too wide for optimal legibility.

  10. add a link from your wikiwand articles to the real wikipedi.

    it's really annoying, most of our users prefer the real wikipedia style.
    some hispter kiddies think this is so much better, really annoying to support.
    our only options are to rewrite all the links in our email or simple dns block this site on our network

  11. Fix the "Send Feedback" function.

    I could not get it to work correctly in either Firefox or Chrome, either from an article or the Wikiwand home page.

    We found out this usually happens due to Ghostery installed, blocking all UserVoice popups. You’ll need to temporarily disable Ghostery in order to send feedback. Sorry for that.

  12. Dark theme

    It would be great to have a dark theme that is easier on the eyes.

  13. Fix the Firefox problem when clicking on a Wikipedia link in Google search results causes Wikiwand to open in a new tab and in search tab.

    It's broken. I tried installing the latest version, 3.1, since the response to a similar complaint implied that the problem has been fixed. However, in my particular circumstance, the problem persists.

    I have configured Google search (and Firefox) so that clicking a link in search results causes the page to be opened in a new tab. That still happens. However, if the link is to a Wikipedia article, then the page also opens in the tab for the search results. (FWIW, the "Open Link in New Tab" option on the context menu for a link works correctly.)

  14. Fix the disambiguation button

    Running chrome; clicking the disambiguation link does nothing.

  15. Getting rid of Wikiwand

    Make it easy to kill your app. It is beautiful, but often just an annoyance.

  16. Articles about colors should keep the color preview

    Most (possibly all) of the articles about colors contain a table whose header has the same background color as the one the article is about. In the Wikiwand version, the background is replaced with white, and there is no way to see what color the article is talking about. Take a look here for an example:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Navyblue?oldformat=true
    http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Navyblue

  17. Remove original wikipedia from history

    When press back from wikiwand, it goes back to original wiki then redirect to wikiwand. Infinite loop. I should do double jump to get back original page.

    When redirect from wikipedia, please remove wikipedia from history.

  18. Show hatnotes

    Hatnotes at the top of the page that tell you things like "for other uses, see ... (disambiguation)" do not show up on Wikiwand. Please add this support as we rely on these links to get around smoothly. Thank you!

  19. Add full HTTPS support

    Wikiwand already seems to have some HTTPS support, although certain scripts are served over HTTP and throw a mixed content warning. Wikipedia itself has full support for HTTPS.

    In a post-Snowden world, a secure-by-default approach benefits all users. HTTPS prevents a user's employer, ISP or government from snooping on what Wikipedia articles they are reading. This is particularly pertinent for users in less democratic countries, where simply viewing a controversial article can get them into real trouble.
