    • Remove "content script start" from console log on every page

      I'm working as a web-developer, and this message hurts my work experience, because it's always distracts from actual console messages.

      • distinguish simplified Chinese and traditional Chinese

        Even I choose Simplified Chinese as my primary language, it still shows default traditional Chinese when I reopen it next time. Please fix it.

          • Why Facebook for bookmarks?

            Let us have bookmarks that are not associated with Facebook. Why can't we just use our Wikipedia logins or create a login for Wikiwand?

            • 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!

              • allow customisation of background, font, visited links, un-visited links colors

                Allow customisation of background, font, visited links, un-visited links colors under personalize menu of the wikiwand menu bar. At present there are visibility issues, especially every one has different visual spectrum acuity, not to mention the differentials in each monitor's color profile settings, effects of aging of the electronic components, degradation of the light emitting crystals, ambient room lighting, relative position of their monitors versus the window, etc... I believe that no matter how well you tweak your official wikiwand colors, no single set of color profile will ever satisfy all wikiwand users. Simplest solution i think is to allow…

                • The latest version constantly logs output in to the chrome developer console

                  The latest version constantly logs output in to the chrome developer console. It should never print anything in to the chrome console unless explicitly in development mode. For web developers it's just filling up the console with messages on every single site. This needs to be turned off now.

                    We are working on this right now. However this is not so easy to do, because we need to have debug output for our development purpose. we tried to get info about the mode extension is running in, but to fulfill this we need to add Management API permission which makes our users unhappy. So now we are investigating other ways to switch off console.log output for real users

                  • Dark Mode doesn't display formulas properly, it gets blurred into the black background.

                    Here is a screenshot of what I mean : http://i.imgur.com/A5lna50.png

                    I hope this can get fixed. Thank you.

                      • Restore functionality of the 'Back' button

                        Currently pressing Back tries to navigate to the Wikipedia article, and hence redirects back to the Wikiwand article. This has the effect of disabling the back button unless you right-click it and select the page before the Wikipedia article. Please look into fixing this (if it can be done).

                        • Fix raw LaTeX in Titles in the Menu

                          Wikiwand displays the raw LaTeX when using LaTeX in titles. This also makes the Entry unclickable for some reason.

                          This can be seen here for example https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Controlled_NOT_gate

                          You can see it with the "Constructing the Bell State" entry. It shows "{\displaystyle |\Phi ^{+}\rangle }" instead of a Rendered version.

                          You can try clicking the entry. The URL changes but nothing happens(you don't jump to the Section as usual).

                            • Very simple way to fix dark mode equation display problem. Literally 10 character fix included.

                              If you are using the dark mode setting with wikiwand pages that contain complex mathematical portions become impossible to see because they are rendered in black against the black background. This is super annoying and after getting tired of having to work around this I realized a code addition of just 10 characters will fix this issue.

                              The problem arises because wikipedia renders complex math written in latex as SVG objects on the page. Wikiwand does nothing to these images, leaving them impossible to see.

                              The fix is to add filter:invert(90%) to the img style tag. That's all. It's that…

                                    • Why does Wikiwand now require new permissions

                                      I'm just curious as to why it needs these new permissions, one of which is to INSTALL OTHER EXTENSIONS.

                                      Please give your reasons. Otherwise, your extension is uninstalled until you do.

                                      • Fix tables not scrolling horizontally.

                                        Tables do not currently scroll properly when their width is larger than the window.

                                        Example - http://www.wikiwand.com/en/List_of_language_bindings_for_Qt_4

                                        • Develop a Mac App Store version

                                          The Safari extension cannot be found any more in the extensions gallery, to which I am redirected when trying to download Wikiwand on Safari (macOS High Sierra, 10.13.4).
                                          It seems that new Safari extensions are available through the Mac App Store.
                                          It would be great to have Wikiwand among those apps!
