    • Language preferences for Chinese

      It is great to have language preferences setting, but Chinese is different from Traditional Chinese (Taiwan)...
      The setting will automatically jump from Traditional Chinese (Taiwan) to Chinese (simplified one) every time I use Wikiwand, and I need to change it back which will only last for one day.
      Is there anyway that the language preferences can be settled down and I don't have to change it anymore?

      • ALLOW MORE FLEXIBILITY IN SEARCH BOX RECOGNITION

        WHEN SEARCHING FOR STAR TREK WEAPONS THE WIKIWAND DID NOT RECOGNIZE AND SET UP MULTIPLE SUGGESTIONS THE FIRST OF WHICH WAS WEAPONS OF STAR TREK. THIS SEEMS A BIT TOO DISSECTING AND NOT ENOUGH RECOGNITION OF HOW WE DESCRIBE THINGS INFORMALLY OVERALL WIKIWAND IS VERY IMPRESSIVE

        • Subsection preview

          For links to subsections of articles, the hover could show the first few sentences of that section instead of the default article preview.

            • giant picture on articles gets party hidden by article text

              often makes me go to the wikipedia article instead. This is the only thing that bugs me while using this plugin

                We kunnen ons wellicht allemaal nog Pieter Vroon voor de geest halen die ergens in de jaren zeventig een geruchtmakend essay publiceerde onder de titel: weg met de psychologie hoewel Pietje zelf hoogleraar psychologie aan de RU Utrecht was. Voor de rest maakte hij ook als volkskrant columnist furore. In 1986 vergastte deze hoogleraar personeel en medewerkers in de kantine van de Utrechtse universiteit op een bijzondere act. Hij gaf uit protest zijn doctorsbul terug aan het bestuurscollege van de universiteit

                  • Avoid intercepting links when they are clicked on the Wikipedia site. (Relevant for contributors.)

                    I actively participate in editing Wikipedia articles. To that end there are pages on the site like "Contributions", "Talk", and "History" which are not supported in Wikiwand. That is OK. However, when I am poking around fixing things or commenting in Talk on the Wikipedia site, I don't want to get back into the Wikiwand skin every time I return to a page which Wikiwand does support, because those other links relevant to a contributor disappear.

                    As far as I am concerned, this should be automatic when I am on any unskinned Wikipedia page. So the option I would like…

                    • Make links easier to see when the dark background theme is selected.

                      When the dark background theme is selected, links are displayed as a light gray. These don't look very different from the white text, and can become difficult to distinguish.

                        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 :-)

                                    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.

                                      • 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 !
