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. How to use Wikiwand with Mac OS launcher Alfred

    If you have Wikiwand installed and use Mac OS launcher Alfred's *native* Wikipedia search, you will get an error *every* time. You have to make a *custom* search in Alfred using this search url format in the custom search dialog menu:

    http://www.wikiwand.com/en/{query}

    Then, give it a different keyword than the built-in. I use "wkk" (without quotes). Hopes this helps those who use Alfred.

      • Fix a Firefox problem when mouse-scrolling in the contents sidebar.

        When the entire Contents list does not fit in the sidebar, you can scroll it with the mouse. However, if you hit the bottom of the sidebar, the scroll effect jumps to the main frame. This can cause the main frame to switch to a new topic relative to the Contents list. The result of changing the Contents topic now being displayed causes the highlight in the Contents sidebar to switch to the new topic. That, in turn, causes the sidebar to scroll to display the newly highlighted item. Thus a topic at the bottom of the Contents sidebar may…

        • improve search

          Search titles rather than just the start of a title.
          e.g. looking for articles about concrete. Typing "c-o-n-c-r ..." does not locate the article "Types of concrete". Which means you must know that an article exists and the name of the article to find it.
          Alternatively Wikipedia could rename all of its articles to e.g. "Concrete, Types of". Which might be a bigger job :-)

          • Give San-serif font more weight

            I generally prefer san-serif, but currently it's so thin that it's a bit hard to read, particularly with the dark theme.

              It's difficult to distinguish links in the dark theme, particularly on a laptop screen not at full brightness.

              • a way to open normal full site Google Maps from this Wikiwand popup Google Maps

                When you click the small Google Maps widget on WikiWand wiki page, it expands so then you have a bigger Google Maps widget inside WikiWand page.
                I would like it if there's a way to somehow open proper Google Maps page - either from the small Maps widget or when the bigger Maps widget opens.

                  Wikiwand's polishing belies the bad shape the content of many articles on Wikipedia have. One would like to know an article is going to be as great as it looks to enjoy it the most.

                  • nowhere to switch to simplied Chinese

                    it is always automatically converted to traditional Chinese even if the language I choose of the original page is simplified Chinese. And there is nowhere that I can change this setting. Seems like there is a default setting that not allowed to be changed. And that slows down my reading speed really a lot. Hope to be fixed soon !

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

                        • Enable infoboxes on all sites

                          When you hover on a link on wikiwand, an infobox opens up. It would be great to have this behaviour on all websites with wikipedia links. Perhaps as an opt-in behaviour.

                            As an example, a middle schooler is very into algorithms and wants to explore sorting for the next month. He can add to his list of favorite categories "Sorting Algorithms". Random article can use this information to narrow down articles specific to his current interests.

                                An option to toggle table borders would be nice. I think the extension is really good to focus on what you're reading but with the tables without borders it can be difficult to understand the data on some tables. An example would be http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Pink_Floyd_videography

                                    • Add indentation to quotation paragraphs

                                      It's more elegant for a text in a smaller font to have shorter lines so that there's approximately the same number of words per line. That's why quotation paragraphs are given extra indentation by many typists.

                                        Instead of simply assuming everyone on the planet wants to bother with conversions to read an article why don't you let them pick a standard in options or settings or whatever passes for personalizing a readers experience.

                                        • Scroll a line less

                                          When using the arrow keys to scroll between subtitles, the subtitle itself is hidden from view which is highly annoying. NOT a hard thing to fix.
