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. Show left summary on hover

    Left summary sometimes can be pretty heavy at the left even if it's useful. Maybe we could have the option to show it only on hover like in windows 8. I suggest to have it transparent and it can also appear a bit like apple icons when we hover on every chapter. It could also appear without reducing the text but on it or maybe by reducing opacity of the part of the text behind.

    • Smaller minimal collumn width

      I find the collumn with way too small for big screens, so it's hard to read.

      • Persistent Search Bar

        The top bar which also include search should remain as we go through the article... so that we could search and go to another page while in the mid of previous page... and we don't have to come to the top to search for something...

          • Create iOS Safari Bookmarklet

            Now that the WikiWand site has been optimized for iOS, we need a convenient way to convert Wikipedia pages we find in Google search results to WikiWand. Something I've seen other sites do (such as Readability) is make a JavaScript bookmarklet for the browser that sends the current URL to a new site format conversion. Example: http://bit.ly/1xliX2Ea

                In the current layout the header image is partially covered by the article itself and there is no way to view the image in one peace without the covering except opening the original wikipedia page. Could you please add a button or a menu to access the image?

                  They use template such as Template:Go_board_5x5 (english version) or Modèle:Goban (french version) which intend to display images side by sides and the result in your Wikiwand is images separated by gap

                    I tried using WikiWand on a Microsoft Surface 3 Pro but the index on the left and the photo picker at the bottom of a photo gallery don't work with touch. Please take a look at this.

                        • 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!

                                We’re gradually translating the major components of the user interface for more languages, starting with the most obvious parts: the “Introduction” section, “Search” bar, and the detection of special sections inside articles (Disambiguation, External Links, References, Footnotes, etc.).
                                It’s a work in progress, so it may take some time. Thanks for your patience!

                              • provide YouTube on-topic videos .

                                alongside entertainment, YouTube became also a rich source of education and science .
                                with the huge and divers amount of tutorials and explanation videos , it will so useful and enriching to include YouTube specific video suggestions to articles , and i think adding the possibility to up vote or down vote or suggest videos would improve the relevance over time.

                                • zoom images on hover (or add an option to enable/disable it).

                                  it's a bite annoying to have to open the whole gallery each time to view or zoom one picture .
                                  Wikipedia pictures consists mostly of illustrations which are dense and containing text , so zooming images is a frequent need thus should be simplified . 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!
