Grants:IdeaLab/Appealing Format

Appealing Format
The format of the website is too dull and simple. The school age grouped people are most likely to get into wikipedia. So, by making the site format more appealing and attractive and adding more images related to the information would try to appeal them. Also adding a " Related topics " part at the end of the page to make people know more about similar topics. The last thing is to upgrading the portal search part, Current popular topics need to be on the start of the portal search for them to have a look at it and finally the articles should have a inbuilt dictionary kindish thing to look for the meaning of words in the article.
