There's already a share button and it's distracting. Plus those buttons track your web usage and a lot of people aren't okay with that; especially considering how open wikipedia actually is. Don't ruin a good thing trying to "socialize" it all.7 votes
There is a conflict between WikiWand and HTTPS Everywhere. When Https is enabled, the Wiki extension turns blank.7 votes
Fix the Firefox problem when clicking on a Wikipedia link in Google search results causes Wikiwand to open in a new tab and in search tab.
It's broken. I tried installing the latest version, 3.1, since the response to a similar complaint implied that the problem has been fixed. However, in my particular circumstance, the problem persists.
I have configured Google search (and Firefox) so that clicking a link in search results causes the page to be opened in a new tab. That still happens. However, if the link is to a Wikipedia article, then the page also opens in the tab for the search results. (FWIW, the "Open Link in New Tab" option on the context menu for a link works correctly.)7 votes
We’ve just released a new version of our Firefox extension that solves the Ctrl+Click bug.
Please remove your existing Wikiwand addon from Firefox and install the latest version here:
The disambigution feature does not work for other languages, at least not for German: http://www.wikiwand.com/de/Schweizer i.e. I CANNOT reach the disambigution page without manually editing the url. For me, this is a dealbreaker at the moment!
(Also, I think it should be more prominent, but that's a design question)6 votes
Fixed, and should propagate to all servers within 48 hours
Wikipedia has a lot of articles with code examples. Originally it highlighted, but wikiwand ignores it.6 votes

Might not be a problem for everyone, but it's really annoying when it causes scrolling to jitter or be sluggish.6 votes
Disabling the cover photo is now possible!
Please click the cogwheel in the toolbar and choose the “Minimal” theme.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W%5EEX - which is the encoded URL for "W^X" redirects to Wikiwand showing the following error:
400 W^EX is a JSON string, but the expected type is /type/key
It appears that the escaped carat ("^") is causing problems.6 votes
Thanks for reporting this bug.
We just issued a fix.

Choose your own font (google font for example)4 votes
We’ve just added an option to customize the font (see the cogwheel on top). It only allows 2 fonts at the moment: Serif and Sans-Serif. We might add more in the future.
I read a lot of math-related articles on Wiki. Thanks to WikiWand, the articles are so much better looking. It would be perfect though, if you could support MathJax, like the original wiki does. The math equations do get blurry, hurting an otherwise perfect reading experience.4 votes
Merging this suggestion with another one. Please vote for this feature here: https://wikiwand.uservoice.com/admin/forums/247843-suggestions/suggestions/6465884-render-math-with-mathjax

One of my common purposes for using Wikipedia is accessing the GPS coordinates of a location to see exactly where it is. Apparently I have to switch to the original Wiki page to access the coordinates link. Can this be added to the WikiWand styled page?3 votes
Completed “maps” functionality, will roll out to servers within a couple of hours
I use the Simple English "language" of Wikipedia all the time with my ESL students, and it would be AWESOME if they could view the Simple English pages via Wikiwand.3 votes
Simple English is actually fully supported in Wikiwand :)
For an example:
1. Please go to http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Education
2. Click the (EN) icon in the toolbar
3. Click “149 other languages”
4. Search for, and select “Simple English”
If you wish to quickly access Simple English from the languages dropdown, you can add it as a preferred language:
1. Go to any article on Wikiwand
2. Click the (EN) icon in the toolbar
3. Click “Language Preferences”
4. Add “Simple English” to your language preferences
5. Close the dialog
6. Click the (EN) icon in the toolbar again. You should see “Simple English” in the dropdown, which will indicate if this article is available in Simple English (not all articles are).
Hope this helps!
