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. 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

    • 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).

          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.

              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.

              • Extension with a Wikipedia-to-Wikiwand switch button that enables one to read the Wikipedia article being browsed on Wikipedia on Wikiwand

                My computer is a relatively slow one. While reading on Wikiwand is more pleasurable, it's often not an option for me since a Wikiwand pages take much longer to load. So I have to generally disable this Wikiwand extension anyway and read articles on Wikipedia's own website instead.

                So I want an extension for the Chrome and other web browsers that has a 'Read this on Wikiwand' button, so that I can keep reading articles on Wikipedia by default and also switch to Wikiwand whenever I want.

                  Our Chrome extension now has this [W] botton in the bottom-right corner that enabled you to disable and enable Wikiwand. This button shows up on Wikiwand and on Wikipedia pages.

                      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.

                          • 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.)

                              Clicking on a result on google opens two tabs with the same wikiwand content (Firefox 31-Windows 7)

                              • 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 full HTTPS support

                                  Wikiwand already seems to have some HTTPS support, although certain scripts are served over HTTP and throw a mixed content warning. Wikipedia itself has full support for HTTPS.

                                  In a post-Snowden world, a secure-by-default approach benefits all users. HTTPS prevents a user's employer, ISP or government from snooping on what Wikipedia articles they are reading. This is particularly pertinent for users in less democratic countries, where simply viewing a controversial article can get them into real trouble.

                                      When press back from wikiwand, it goes back to original wiki then redirect to wikiwand. Infinite loop. I should do double jump to get back original page.

                                      When redirect from wikipedia, please remove wikipedia from history.

                                      • Add link to disambiguation page

                                        A link should be added to a disambiguation page where one exists.

                                        For example, if I search for a 'Nickel' on Wikipedia I am directed to the page on the element - as I am on WikiWand - but there is also a link to the disambiguation page (useful if I had wanted to look up the coin). As far as I'm aware, this link does not exist in WikiWand.

                                        • Show pop-ups of citations by placing the mouse over the third-bracketed numbers (instead of clicking on them)

                                          Also, there is another VERY disturbing problem which needs to be FIXED. If there are two citations for the same statement, say [1] and [2], I CAN click on [1], and THEN [2] to see pop-ups for each of them, but I CANNOT see the pop-up of [1] AFTER THAT again simply by clicking on it. Instead, I have to FIRST CLOSE the pop-up for the second citation, and THEN click on [1] to see its pop-up.
