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".

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. 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.

  3. Please make the pictures in these "Overview boxes" clickable!

    With this I mean the boxes like "periodic table" on each element site or the box on this site (http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Kirchhoffsche_Regeln ) or here (http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Capricorn_(astrology) ).
    The first one seems to be clickable but the periodic table is not visible... the second one is visible but not clickable.
    (And sadly not on every page which it links to, but that is not a problem of Wikiwand, but if someone has more knowledge of Wikipedia than I do, I'd be glad if he/she would edit this template on every site where it links to, so you can easily go to…

  4. giant picture on articles gets party hidden by article text

  5. 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.

  8. Remove the "Upgrade Wikipedia" suggestion header, once I have upgraded to Wikiwand.

    Once a user downloads the suggested extension and installs it, stop suggesting to upgrade in the header.

  10. make your logo better (sorry).

    The wikiwand logo looks like something from 2006. Great software design but that logo...

    Wikipedia has featured articles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Featured_articles

  14. Wikiwand should accept style sheets generated by TemplateStyles

    Wikipedia introduced TemplateStyles last year, since than, so many pages inserted sanitized CSS stylesheets from a template, and they got many enhancements for visual appearence. However none of them are works in Wikiwand, I suggests to import style sheets generated by TemplateStyles to make them works as expected.

  15. Make WikiWand compatible with other WikiMedia sites.

    WikiWand is great, but its aesthetic magic unfortunately doesn't carry over to other WikiMedia sites, such as Wiktionary and WikiCommons. It would be great if compatibility for these sites was added.

  17. 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)

  19. More options for line length and height

    At current biggest possible font size and narrowest possible paragraph width, I get lines of about 18 words. Ideal line length for readability is about 10 words. Can we get more options here?

    Also, I would like more spacing possible between lines. A slider for line-height would be great!

  20. Client-side settings persistence

    I use Wikiwand with sans font type at the biggest size available and the dark theme. It gets back to the default settings(with theme with serif font at smaller size) every time I reopen my browser or when mi IP adresse changes.

    Woud it be possible to store the settings on the client-side (in a persistent cookie or through the browser extension for instance) so that I don't have to change them manually so often ?
