    Fantastic plugin

    I love this plugin... however I'd some basic improvements:

    - Put the Wikipedia links and strings into XML files
    (some of us would like to use Danish ... and/or specialized 'pedias).

    Great work.

    Regards,
    Henrik Neumann

    Thanks Henrik for those nice words :)

    Your idea sounds not too hard to implement. I'll put it on my list, but don't exspect it happening too soon ;)

    It's in 2.2 but it doesn't seem to work. At least not in English Canada.

    Great plugin!

    Not sure if this has already been asked in an earlier post, but is there no way to view the pictures with the text? I'm thinking like a webbrowser...
    Anyway, it would be nice - great plugin, great work!

    I would like a danish version too ;-)

    New feature!

    This is done as of today :) So you can start to add all kind of obscure Wikipedia sites ;) But I'll also add some more mentioned in this thread here.

    Btw. there is an excellent article about using the Wikipedia plugin (written by Boilermaker). I added the info about adding new sites today.

    Hello M,

    Tried the new version almost instantly ... very good with the XML conf solution. I have a few problems though...

    When I try to search in English everything is fine. I get the links and images (and text of course). When I try the same word ("Odense", the city I grew up in) in Swedish it returns results in Italian .. and Danish does not work at all.

    When It fails the first time, the "Search" button is no more active (I'm using Blue Two, std.).

    Am I missing something ?

    Hi K,

    The Odense article contains some "special" characters which caused the parsing to crash... I now added some code to prevent the crashing. I couldn't figure out what exactly was causing it and so I couldn't fix it completely :/ But at least displaying works now.

    The Swedish and Italian languages were mixed up indeed. Thanks for pointing me there!
