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.

Major Bug Fixes

  • Yesterday we fixed a bug that caused community CSS to fail to load on some communities.
  • Earlier today we fixed an issue that caused some infoboxes to have very narrow label widths.
  • Blog lists will no longer show blogs as all being posted on the same day.

Other Notable Changes

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

  • The popular pages Insights report will be tweaked to improve the quality of the data shown - it will now update weekly on Sundays, always showing a full week of data.

Select Known Issues

  • We are currently investigating an issue with notifications not always loading properly.
