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. 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.

    • 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.

      • "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 :)

        • Please provide Wikiwand for Opera browser

          Opera is the favourite browser for many, please provide wikiwand for the same

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Have user specific Home Page

                  You can have a home page where based on users interests, show some random articles to increase their knowledge base. Just like "stumbleupon" of wikipedia.

                  • Wikiwand as an extension for wikimedia instances

                    Give everyone the possibility to design his own Wikimedia instance with your skin.
                    An other way could be to make the Browser-extension compatible with all Wikimedia Sites. So the user gets a pop-up when he visits a wikimedia domain and gets asked if he wants to display this site with wikiwand.
                    Something like this would be so great!

                        I can't open this link: http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Speed_of_sound
                        When I try to open the link it just loads forever. All other pages works fine.

                        • you should change the logo, because it spoils everything.

                          I want to use wikiwand, but this logo makes me upset every time I see it.
                          The idea of wikiwand is not working with this logo.
                          I am not the only one who is asking you to do this. So please, just do it.

                                • Make Hotkeys configurable

                                  Basically, my problem is, that when I'm in Chrome and I tab out, the search Window opens (It opens by pressing Alt for some reason) and when I tab back in, I have to press Esc to make it disappear.

                                  These Hotkeys might be useful for some people, but its really distracting and annoying for others. Please make them configurable.

                                      • Add a paid version for a few $ that gets rid of nags and mentions of Wikiwand.

                                        I enjoy the interface of Wikiwand, but all the nagging and advertising going on really detracts from using Wikipedia. I wouldn't mind paying $3-5 to enjoy a "pure" version of Wikiwand that makes no mention of Wikiwand anywhere but the URL/logo.

                                        • Background image in minimal view. As option.

                                          I'd like to have possibility to see backgroud image when I'm viewing articles in minimal view. I prefer this view, but I like background images in "rich view", I'd like to have turn it on in minimalistic view as option.
