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).1 vote
You can now customize your favorite languages in Wikiwand!
I think that the search bar is too big and takes too much place, also it really doesn't look nice IMO, maybe something more sober, and less invasive would be better. Thx,10 votes
We removed the search bar from the toolbar, now there’s a small search button instead.
Also, we have improved the search accuracy and display, give it a try!
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 8.3 votes
We improved iOS/Safari performance vastly in the past month. Does it work better now?
ctrl+click to open link in new tab for languages1 vote
Should work now. You can open the language (EN) menu, then ctrl+click to open other languages in a new tab.
I suggest to not show the top search bar at the top unless we put the mouse on it. I think that it takes too much place.
Search bar too present1 vote
Merged with the following suggestion, please vote here:
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.19 votes
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.
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!12 votes
Disabling the cover photo is now possible!
Please click the cogwheel in the toolbar and choose the “Minimal” theme.
Please add an option or permanently alter the site/extension so that pages are served securely over HTTPS.
You should consider making it harder for government or private entities to intercept, track and profile the browsing history of people trying to educate themselves, which can be a major concern for visitors from some less democratic countries.
Thank you.39 votes
HTTPS is now enabled in Wikiwand – you can browser to any article using HTTPS!
Chrome Extension users are automatically redirected to read the article using HTTPS when arriving from an HTTPS website (such as Google Search).
This will be very usefull guys!!!11 votes
We added quick access to Wikipedia’s PDF generator.
In any article, click the Wikiwand logo → “Print / Download as PDF”
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.9 votes
Legends should now display properly when clicking an image → clicking (i) in the gallery
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.3 votes
It is not possible to suggest a cover photo. Click any image to open the gallery, then click the “pin” icon in the top-left corner.

I understand you might want to monetize WikiWand later on, but the source being available shouldn't hurt your ability to do so, and in fact using a popular code hosting provider such as github will likely even accelerate its improvement :)2 votes
Hi Waldir. We might release some parts of WikiWand (but not all of it) as Open Source. But this will be in the future.
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.14 votes
We’re glad to announce that Talk and History pages, as well as other functions, are now available through the new “W” icon in the toolbar.
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.17 votes
On any article, please click the Wikiwand logo → “Download / Print PDF”
Clicking on a result on google opens two tabs with the same wikiwand content (Firefox 31-Windows 7)9 votes
We’ve just released a new version of our Firefox extension that solves the Ctrl+Click bug.
Please remove your existing Wikiwand addon from Firefox and install the latest version here:
Fixed. will roll out to servers within a couple of hours.
