  1. Remove logs on chrome extension

    Having "do not show on websites" every time I click on anything is disturbing.

  2. "do not show on websites" keeps getting logged in chrome console

    For 3 years now, everytime a click event happens on a page, a console message saying "do not show on websites" is logged. As a web developer, this is a deal-breaker as it slows the job of debugging my web apps.

  3. 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…

  4. Add "Random Article" based on user selection of categories

    As an example, a middle schooler is very into algorithms and wants to explore sorting for the next month. He can add to his list of favorite categories "Sorting Algorithms". Random article can use this information to narrow down articles specific to his current interests.

    Thanks Wikiwand!

  5. 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!

  7. Link to "Cite this page" under share options

    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.

  8. Make the hover over popup behavior configurable

    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.

  9. Touch screen support

    I tried using WikiWand on a Microsoft Surface 3 Pro but the index on the left and the photo picker at the bottom of a photo gallery don't work with touch. Please take a look at this.

  10. Share an article with shortened URL

    Have a share button where a link (a shortened URL) would be generated. (Also social sharing would be good to have within the same feature.)

  11. 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.

  14. Don't omit the "Not to be confused with ..." text at the top of articles

    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.

  15. "Ctrl + Shift + Click" to quick search in links could be disabled separately of the "Ctrl + Click" of the normal words

    I use that shortcut very often to open a link in a new tab and focus in that tab in chrome, but I understand this Wikiwand function have its utilityes to other people. So it will help a lot if you guys add an option to turn it off :)

  18. Link up with a dictionary site

    I like the ability to get the hoverbox over links in a wiki article, and I like the ability to control-click on terms and get the hoverbox paragraph if it's something that has a wiki article attached, but half the stuff I do that for is stuff that I really just want the definition of. A lot of the time in these cases it offers the list of wiki articles I might be looking for, but I'd much rather see a basic definition pulled from somewhere, and then the links underneath or behind an option to explore the wiki pages.

  19. When pressing the backspace button or clicking the 'previous' page button, you should allow it to return straight back to the previous page

    When pressing the backspace button or clicking the 'previous page; button, you should allow it to return straight back to the previous page instead of reloading the wikiwand page again.

  20. When on dark theme, make the Wikiwand header also dark

    Now that header is out of place when the whole page is dark.
