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. Table with fixed header on scroll

    We all know there is one sort of really great wikipage, the comparison series,
    like http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Comparison_of_video_codecs

    It is really great to have these great compilations of information, but, unfortunately,
    most tables are just too long to browse. It would be really easy to get lost while scrolling
    down the table.

    I am wondering if Wikiwand is thinking about improving that?
    Something like this: [Table with fixed header on scroll](http://codepen.io/jgx/pen/wiIGc)

    • 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.

        • Fix pop-up annotation references in tables.

          Pop-up annotations inside tables are cut off at table boundaries, making them difficult to read.

          e.g. http://www.wikiwand.com/en/V_speeds#/Regulatory_V-speeds

              • button for stopping animated images

                Images are nicely placed in wikiwand.com but reading an article having an series of images that is changing with the time (a gif for example) it's hard to concentrate on the text. (have a look at: http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Wave_packet). What do you think of the idea to insert the possibily to stop the motion by a click on a special button within the image. Blocking the motion by default is not a good idea because sometimes it's enough to see the motion to understand the principles without reading the article

                    Clicking on any of the header fields on this page should jump to a description of that field, but it doesn't because those headings don't have #anchors.

                    • Render math with MathJax

                      like the Chrome extension "Wikipedia with MathJax". It replaces the images with the LaTeX and lets the MathJax script render it. Way better typography with correct baselines and scaling so that it prints well too.

                      • 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.

                                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

                                        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.
