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".
(thinking…)

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. Show the cover image caption on every page

    This is the only loss on Wikiwand to me. E.g., I was reading https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Apsis and I had to switch (again) on the "oldformat" to read the image caption "Apsides:
    Apocenter (1), Pericenter (2) and Focus (3)."

        • Hieroglyphs doesn't appear

          Hieroglyphs in articles appear as their codes in Wikiwand (e.g. in https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Pharaoh), while they appear good on Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pharaoh).

          • Add a button or a menu to access the header image

            In the current layout the header image is partially covered by the article itself and there is no way to view the image in one peace without the covering except opening the original wikipedia page. Could you please add a button or a menu to access the image?

            • [bug] failed to redirect to chapter

              Redirection with chapter such as [[Fourier's law]] is properly anchored at the desired chapter; however, if a link in an article is redirected, such as [[Fourier's law|Fourier's law of heat conduction]] in [[Heat sink]], is not anchored down at the chapter.

              • Place the "Last updated" time of the articles.

                Wikipedia shows the "last edit" time of the article and it's useful to track how recent some info is. I suggest you also include it in wikiwand.

                Thank you

                  • Add indentation to quotation paragraphs

                    It's more elegant for a text in a smaller font to have shorter lines so that there's approximately the same number of words per line. That's why quotation paragraphs are given extra indentation by many typists.

                    • Matrices are black in Dark mode

                      It seems that Matrices don't get inverted when using the dark mode
                      This can be seen in the Article on Matrices: https://www.wikiwand.com/en/Matrix_(mathematics)

                      • On missing article pages, make the Wikipedia ‘Read’ and ‘Edit’ links work

                        When an article is missing on Wikipedia, Wikiwand makes it really hard to add it, blocking Wikipedia's built-in links for this.

                        If I don't find an article, often it is on Wikipedia but under a different name, so I want to add a redirect page for it, to help anybody else in future searching under that name.

                        On the original Wikipedia, the ‘no article with this name’ page has a link for creating an article with that name.

                        Wikiwand's equivalent page doesn't have such a link — which is fine; the ‘maybe you were looking for’ list is fantastic, and…

                        • Add a Wikiwand hovercard for Wikipedia links

                          When a website links to Wikipedia, it'd be very helpful to have a hovercard appear showing the summary paragraph of the article!

                              There should be a link to "Cite this page" for easy citation of articles. I think under share options is a suitable place for it.

                                The hover over popups get in the way, and obscure parts of the article. Please make this behavior configurable. You can leave the default as is, but please provide additional options to either disable it -or- have it be active only when holding down some meta key.

                                  It sucks that you have to click on the search symbol first, wait until the search bar pops up and then type your searchword. It was much easier before when the search bar was there all the time.

                                      • Option to disable hover previews on links

                                        They get in the way of the article. I understand where people might like this feature but I see there are some that share the same problem as me. At least give us an option to disable the feature.

                                          If a WIkipedia article has the line "Not to be confused with ..." at the top, WikiWand omits it. But that line is actually really useful, so it should be included.
