Wikipedia project review please


Hi all,

If possible, could i have a bit of feedback on my wikipedia search app before i move on?




Hey, very nice! :slight_smile:

I had only one problem… In my Firefox, the “Suprise me” button didn’t work. I tested in Google Chrome and works fine!

The FF console didn’t show any error. :confused:

One more suggestion: when there’s no result, you can write “No results for ‘xyz’” or something like that.

Congratulations again, great job!

Great job. :slight_smile: Loved your idea. as Wikipedia is almost like google of articles.

thanks for that, i didn’t catch that bug.

Fixed now, its not really a bug. It was my bad mark up. HTML5 forbids putting anchors in button elements but most browsers let you get away with it. Fixed by converting button to a div and styling to match. I’ll look at search errors later too.

Great minds think alike :+1:

almost exactly the same arent they. I like the way your search header changes with the result.

Hey, I realize it’s been a while since you posted this, but just wanted to say that you did an awesome job with the styling. There is a little issue with some markup in firefox (see attached pic), but beside that, it’s as clean and comforting as the big “G”.

Hi @bmbaron,

thanks for the comments!

I fixed the layout bug too, thanks for spotting that :thumbsup:

Good deal, best of luck to ya! :grin:
