Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia! As usual, please note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

As previously mentioned, we are in a trial period of releasing twice per week, on Tuesday and Thursday. The benefits of making this change are that updates get released faster, and individual releases are smaller and more manageable.

This week, we'll continue with posting two technical update posts - one on Monday, and one today.

As readers of the technical update blogs, we welcome your feedback as we move through this trial period.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Article action buttons (e.g. 'Edit') will no longer overlap the 'Pages on this wiki' counter.
  • An issue preventing some community backgrounds from caching correctly was recently fixed - this should result in faster pageloads, as less downloading will be required.
  • We've also recently fixed two security issues in Chat that allowed bans to be circumvented.
