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

  • The founder "daily digest" email will now include references, and links to, the proper wikia instead of Community Central.
  • New users will no longer be welcomed multiple times via email or on their Message Walls.
  • Background images will now display properly in Safari 8.

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.

  • We are relaxing the restriction on MediaWiki pages to allow editing on the following:
    'Chat.css', 'Community-corner', 'Deletereason-dropdown', 'Description', 'Edittools', 'External_image_whitelist', 'Filedelete-reason-dropdown', 'Forum-policies-and-faq', 'Global-navigation-local-search-placeholder', 'Ipboptions', 'Ipbreason-dropdown', 'Licenses', 'Mainpage', 'Photosblacklist', 'Protect-dropdown', 'Recentchangestext', 'Sitenotice', 'TitleBlacklist', 'Uploadtext', 'Welcome-bot-flag', 'Welcome-enabled', 'Welcome-message-anon', 'Welcome-message-user', 'Welcome-message-wall-anon', 'Welcome-message-wall-user', 'Welcome-user', and 'Wiki-navigation'.
