  1. Scroll a line less

    When using the arrow keys to scroll between subtitles, the subtitle itself is hidden from view which is highly annoying. NOT a hard thing to fix.

  2. giant picture on articles gets party hidden by article text

    often makes me go to the wikipedia article instead. This is the only thing that bugs me while using this plugin

  3. hovering over wiki links brings up infoboxes with no time in. That's bit frustrating and distracting.

  4. Safari: Ctrl/Cmd+Click opens Wikiwand in a new tab AND current tab

    Same as Firefox.
    Using WikiWand in Safari 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.

  6. Allow special pages, such as Special:Prefix index, to be used from the WikiWand interface.

    I can access the Special page from a link within Wikipedia, but after entering text and searching I only get:

    This page was not found
    If you believe this is a mistake, please tell us about it.

    And this is indeed a mistake. Please fix it and give us access!

    ref 2 just shows ", p. 1679." in the bubble

    And "^" in References, it won't bring me back to where it is marked, it didnt response

  9. Language preferences for Chinese

    It is great to have language preferences setting, but Chinese is different from Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)...
    The setting will automatically jump from Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) to Chinese (simplified one) every time I use Wikiwand, and I need to change it back which will only last for one day.
    Is there anyway that the language preferences can be settled down and I don't have to change it anymore?

  10. Add Wikiwand to Chrome's search engines

    I'd like to add Wikiwand as a search engine to the Chrome browser instead of using the extension. For my needs using the extension would be overkill as I typically search Wikipedia using a built-in keyword search available in most browsers these days. How do you add a Wikiwand search to Chrome's search engines?

  11. use column-count on sections

    CSS3 offers native support for columns in text [1] which is supported by all modern browsers at least with a prefix [2]. It would be really nice to be able to (dynamicly?) have this feature on sections containing more than 3 or so lines. On wikipedia this looks really nice [3] and makes reading articles a LOT easier as you don't loose the line as easily when your eyes move to the next line. Imho this is not yet solved by wikiwand even if you set the column width to smallest.

  12. bring back the keyboard shortcut [Maj+Ctrl+f]

    In the old version we can use this shortcut to directly access to the search bar, but it seems to be unimplemented in Wikiwand.

  15. Put a sign that an article is featured or rated "good" or "A" by Wikipedia

    Wikiwand's polishing belies the bad shape the content of many articles on Wikipedia have. One would like to know an article is going to be as great as it looks to enjoy it the most.

  16. Add indentation to quotation paragraphs

    It's more elegant for a text in a smaller font to have shorter lines so that there's approximately the same number of words per line. That's why quotation paragraphs are given extra indentation by many typists.

  17. faster language change

    I would like to have chosen language buttons right in the top menu. Since I usually read Wiki in two languages this would allow me to change it with single click only. I am also keen user of FF feature "search as I type" that allows navigating more with keyboard and less with mouse. So therefore I would like to also propose full language names in top menu to change them with keyboard only.

  18. Bring back search bar on top of page

    It sucks that you have to click on the search symbol first, wait until the search bar pops up and then type your searchword. It was much easier before when the search bar was there all the time.

  19. Please make the pictures in these "Overview boxes" clickable!

    With this I mean the boxes like "periodic table" on each element site or the box on this site (http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Kirchhoffsche_Regeln ) or here (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Capricorn_(astrology) ).
    The first one seems to be clickable but the periodic table is not visible... the second one is visible but not clickable.
    (And sadly not on every page which it links to, but that is not a problem of Wikiwand, but if someone has more knowledge of Wikipedia than I do, I'd be glad if he/she would edit this template on every site where it links to, so you can easily go to…

  20. The icon "Return to WikiWand" displayed in the bottom right corner is too big. This may annoy some older users.

    .
    .
    15-01-04 zpl->WikiWand Board: Dear innovators,

                       It is not a new idea, rather a remark concerning
                       current GUI. It's OK, moreover -- it is nice, but
                       the icon (field) informing about the possibility
                       of the return to WikiWand GUI is a bit annoying,
                       because it is too big. Please, decrease two times
                       the linear size of the icon. Other parts of the
                       new GUI are (for now) quite useful and aesthetic.
    
                       Sincerely,
    
                       Zdzisław Płoski
