Wikiwand Website & Extensions

  1. Include easy access to the talk pages.

    I use talk pages frequently to understand controversy on contentious subjects.

    (Also, they are very entertaining sometimes. I recommend reading the talk page for the "Oxford Comma" to see some of the best articulated trolling on the internet)

  2. Minify HTML, CSS and compress images

    Wikiwand loads slow (In comparison of other sites)!!
    Why don't you minify HTML, CSS and compress images? Also go for removal of render blocking content, if possible!

    Hi Tanmay.
    We do concatenate and minify CSS, JS and images.
    However, we take your comment very seriously, so we’ll figure out other ways to enhance the load time of Wikiwand.

  3. Click on top bar to go to the top of the article

    One G+ feature that I love is the ability to click on the top bar to go straight to the top of the page.

    Seeing that this extension has a similar top bar (in the sense that it auto-hides and has more than enough blank space available) it would be great if clicking somewhere on that empty space would make the article automatically scroll bar to the top.

    You can actually do that – scroll to top by clicking the article name in the sidebar. That is: click the article name in the top-left corner of the screen.

  4. Information

    Please include more info that appears in Wikipedia (like info uploader gave for picture he uploaded to wikimedia). Make flags clickable (if

  6. Hiding search bar

    It would be nice IMO, if we could have a hidden search bar unless we hover the mouse over it. maybe with a small option to keep it visible if we need or prefer, I think that it is too visible on the page. Thx,

  7. Wikiwand Suggest as cover photo grey screen

    I was reading an article and when I clicked a word to read some more information, I got a grey screen with a "Suggest as cover photo" with two buttons. When I click on the close button it doesn't do anything and when I click the button yes or no it opens a new tab with the same content.
    It showed up when I had Wikiwand version 3.2., so I installed it back to 3.1. and the problem still show up.

  9. Quick definitions are broken in Chrome 73

    In Chrome 73, a new security feature called Cross-Origin Read Blocking (https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768) prevents Wikiwands popup definitions from working. When you attempt to do a popup, the spinner stays forever, and in the Chrome Console log, you can see the following error message:

    "Cross-Origin Read Blocking (CORB) blocked cross-origin response "https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?..." with MIME type application/json. See https://www.chromestatus.com/feature/5629709824032768 for more details."

    Relatedly: when the pop-up fails, the spinner stays forever. The popup should detect failure and remove the spinner when this happens, and ideally show a pop-up error with what happened.

  10. Fix the bug that gets triggered by http://www.wikiwand.com/de/ORGAN%C2%B2/ASLSP

    This should open the article http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ORGAN%C2%B2/ASLSP
    and not open the search page. The first hit is a link to the article.

    Perhaps this is the same bug described in "Fix a bug for urls with a slash (/)".

  11. Fix iOS Safari Crashes

    I find WikiWand slow and crashy on mobile Safari. When I load a moderately long article, like Bill Gates, it is slow loading, and about 50% of the time it crashes the page/browser (which I see rarely happen on other sites). On my Android Nexus 7 tablet, Wiki Wand works much better. My Device: iPhone 4S; iOS 8.

    When you do a wikiwand search and put your mouse on top of the links the popups look semi transparent. http://i.imgur.com/cwQ9bIk.png

  13. Choosing "Cover photo" for the article.

    For now, there is only an option to "report" the cover photo (the big one in the header) as unsuitable or disturbing. Perhaps, there should be an option to choose the cover photo from those related to the article by means of voting, or otherwise.

  14. Show hatnotes

    Hatnotes at the top of the page that tell you things like "for other uses, see ... (disambiguation)" do not show up on Wikiwand. Please add this support as we rely on these links to get around smoothly. Thank you!

  15. Open source

    I understand you might want to monetize WikiWand later on, but the source being available shouldn't hurt your ability to do so, and in fact using a popular code hosting provider such as github will likely even accelerate its improvement :)

  16. Font with full latin support

    Unfortunately Lora font has some missing glyphs (https://www.google.com/fonts/specimen/Lora). I think that it's really important to use a font that supports all latin and cyrillic glyphs - without them some articles look very bad and loose their readability. :(

    We added Lora with full latin support, should look fine on all latin languages. If you encounter anything wrong, please send us a screenshot to support wikiwand.com

  17. Fix the "Send Feedback" function.

    I could not get it to work correctly in either Firefox or Chrome, either from an article or the Wikiwand home page.

    We found out this usually happens due to Ghostery installed, blocking all UserVoice popups. You’ll need to temporarily disable Ghostery in order to send feedback. Sorry for that.

  18. add a link from your wikiwand articles to the real wikipedi.

    it's really annoying, most of our users prefer the real wikipedia style.
    some hispter kiddies think this is so much better, really annoying to support.
    our only options are to rewrite all the links in our email or simple dns block this site on our network
