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.

      We’ve fixed this error, sorry guys.
      It was caused due to an OpenSSL configuration problem while communicating with the Wikipedia servers. Should be working fine now, sorry again.

        • Cleanup console debug

          As a developer, getting the console clogged, is somewhat annoying:

            Those prints originated from our Chrome Extension, sorry about that.
            We have removed those prints and published a new version of our Chrome Extension.
            Chrome updates extensions automatically, so those prints should be gone within the next few hours – no action is required on your side.

          • Get rid of these ridiculous Blog article suggestions.

            It's so distracting, this is NOT why I use Wikiwand

              • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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)

                          • 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.

                                      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.

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

                                      • 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.)

                                        • Fix the disambiguation button

                                          Running chrome; clicking the disambiguation link does nothing.
