Technical Update: April 15, 2014

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

  • Special pages updates were not running on some wikias. (This fix is already live.)
  • For the new VisualEditor:
    • Extra editor entry points were appearing in Monobook
    • VisualEditor was not loading when a wikia had poorly written custom JS
    • 'Focus mode', where other elements of the page fade out while editing, was not working properly on RTL wikias.
    • In Safari, the page background color was visible inside the editor

Select Known Issues

  • The notification bubble is remaining visible even after notifications are dismissed, in some cases.
