We've been working hard to make things easier for our users. We're excited to share some improvements, including a new look and feel and simplified editing features. Improving the usability of the site is an ongoing effort here at Wikimedia and we'll be sharing more updates in the future.

Here's what we've recently launched:

  • Navigation: We've improved the navigation for reading and editing articles. Now, the tabs at the top of each page more clearly define whether you're viewing the article page or discussion page, and whether you're reading or editing an article.

New Editing Toolbar
  • Editing toolbar improvements: We've reorganized the editing toolbar to make easier to use. Now, formatting articles is simpler and more intuitive.

Link Wizard
  • Link wizard: An easy-to-use tool allows you to add links to other Wikipedia articles as well as links to external sites.

  • Search improvements: We've improved search suggestions to get you to the article you're looking for more quickly.
  • Other new features: We've also introduced a table wizard to make creating tables easier and find and a replace feature to simplify article editing.
