Wikia Technical Updates

Blog posts

  • DaNASCAT

    Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Tuesday and Thursday - today's notes are for tomorrow's site update. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.


    Detailed CSS updates can be found at http://report.wikia.net - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

    • Links to images that have been used in forum/wall threads or blog comments will no longer incorrectly redirect users to those locations.

    We've a fairly quiet release tomorrow! There's still a lot of background tweaks happening as usual, but no major user-facing tweaks. We hope everyone in the US enjoyed (or is still enjoying) their Independence Day weekend!


    • Some image description pages are redirecting to walls, forums or comment threads where they're used. If you're running into this issue, adding ?redirect=no to the File page URL should prevent the redirect in the meantime.
