Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we’re posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Some users were still getting watchlist mail even when unsubscribed from all emails.
  • IE8 users had some issues using global navigation bar items.
  • Clicking on thumbnails in the 'Appears on these pages' section of file pages could take you to a page called 'Undefined'.
  • Darwin: Search Suggest was not working when the search box was in the right rail.

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.

  • Followed Forum and Wall threads are now bolded on RecentChanges, like other followed pages. Thanks to TK-999, one of the Volunteer Developers, for this!
