  1. Transparent search bar

    I also suggest in addition to show it on hover even on the top, to make the search bar completely transparent, it will give a more classy appearance IMO, maybe it can also be thinner.
    The transparency idea can maybe be considered for the left summary column. Something more light and aerial.

    We removed the search bar from the toolbar, now there’s a small search button instead. When you click it, you’ll get a full-screen search with a semi-transparent background. Hope you will like it :)

  2. Include easy access to the talk pages.

    I use talk pages frequently to understand controversy on contentious subjects.

    (Also, they are very entertaining sometimes. I recommend reading the talk page for the "Oxford Comma" to see some of the best articulated trolling on the internet)

  3. Disable social features

    The new social, 'share' and 'news' features distract from the articles - if I was to share something on Twitter, FB or otherwise, I would use other means.

    We have recently disabled the news feature in article pages.

    We still keep the “share” button for articles, though, since many users use it and it’s widely common in any modern app.

  4. Disable Cover Image

    The large cover image on some articles makes scrolling really laggy when compared to articles that don't have a cover image. I think this is due to the hardware-acceleration of scrolling in OS X, but it'd be great if we could disable cover images on all articles (this'd also help load times drastically).

    I tried blocking it using a custom adblock filter but the cover_image div has the CSS to offset the content below it, so if you block the image it cuts off the title and first paragraph of the article.

    Other than that WikiWand is fab!

  7. Hiding search bar

    It would be nice IMO, if we could have a hidden search bar unless we hover the mouse over it. maybe with a small option to keep it visible if we need or prefer, I think that it is too visible on the page. Thx,

  8. Put most commonly used languages on top

    It looks like it's always the same languages on top, and then you can click 'more languages' to choose between all languages.
    But most users have a specific subset of languages which they care about (common case being their mother tongue + english).

  10. I want a button for printing a wiki-article

    What happened to the button to print an article? I saw it, but now its gone. The button to make a PDF-file vanished too.

  11. Firefox: Ctrl/Cmd+Click opens Wikiwand in a new tab AND current tab

    Using WikiWand in Firefox on an MacBook, if I cmd-click to open an Wikipedia link in a new tab, WikiWand does this but ALSO opens the link in the current tab half a second later

  12. Colour-coded graph legend

    With coloured maps and graphs, Wikipedia has a legend that shows how each colour corresponds to a certain data point or value. Wikiwand is missing the colours associated with the values. For example, take a look at the map legend on the Microeconomics page.

  14. Talk & History Pages display option

    Although not very popular, I'm someone who actually uses the Talk Pages to gain more information on an article, which btw is one of the best hidden secrets on the web. Also, I sometimes use the History page for further context. I'd like to see an option to display links to both the Talk & History pages, instead of having to revert to the old wiki style in order to access them.

  15. Fix iOS Safari Crashes

    I find WikiWand slow and crashy on mobile Safari. When I load a moderately long article, like Bill Gates, it is slow loading, and about 50% of the time it crashes the page/browser (which I see rarely happen on other sites). On my Android Nexus 7 tablet, Wiki Wand works much better. My Device: iPhone 4S; iOS 8.

  19. Choosing "Cover photo" for the article.

    For now, there is only an option to "report" the cover photo (the big one in the header) as unsuitable or disturbing. Perhaps, there should be an option to choose the cover photo from those related to the article by means of voting, or otherwise.
