Wikiwand Website & Extensions

I suggest you...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

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

        • Allow the wikiwand interface to load locally if the extension is installed

          If the wikiwand interfacial elements were to be available locally, then the only thing you would have to fetch from the internet would be the wikipedia content. This would improve loading times as well as reduce traffic to your website every time an article is loaded. This can be bundled along with the extension, which would do more than redirection now.

          I got the idea from the Mega (ala the Kim Dotcom service) extension and any typical android app, both of which generally have the interface available locally and only load content from out there.

                  • Add a built in player for audio files (.mid, .ogg)

                    It's really annoying having to download these files just to play them. Also .ogg is not supported without additional downloads of codecs etc, so it's difficult for the average user to even listen to these files.

                    If you guys could fix that, it'd be a big reason for me to use your app over the original site. Thanks!

                      • Scrolling left-sideTable of Contents is hard...

                        ...and, depending on the # of TOC items in a Topic,
                        the scrolling of the TOC gets stuck-
                        ie: you can not scroll below the last, displayed TOC item,
                        although YOU KNOW there are more items below it!...

                        Also, there is a very thin vertical scrollbar (inside the TOC).
                        Can you make that TOC scroll bar thicker?
                        (so it's easier to grab and manipulate with Mouse?).

                        Thanks!

                                Keyboard accessibility, in terms of visible keyboard focus and the keyboard accessibility of the main menu, doesn't appear to be that good. You have some fantastic tools for changing the look of the content and for in page navigation but it is not possible for those who are unable or prefer not to use a mouse to access these features.

                                    • Better Latex rendering

                                      Wikiwand is beautiful, but its Latex rendering looks even worse than wikipedia's.

                                      I've noticed several problems:

                                      1. The Latex fragments seem to be scaled, and so they look blurry. Also a "staircase pattern" is visible on the edges of curvy lines. Latex should be rendered to SVG or to a higher resolution, so these artifacts are not visible.

                                      2. Inline latex is not always placed in the correct height. (see "argmax_y p(y|x,\theta)" in attached screenshot. I realize that you get an image and are not aware of the position of the equation inside the image, but I think the location…
