Here are the latest technical updates on Fandom. 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

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • Different user groups will now display different icons in Chat, like those seen in Discussions. In particular, admins, chat/discussions moderators, helpers and VSTF groups will become distinguishable.
  • Banner notifications (such as the 'available in your language' message) will be improved on the mobile layout, making them easier to read and dismiss.
  • We recently tweaked the Fandom content modules to use much more bandwidth efficient imagery.
  • We recently retired a page header concept test - see Thread:1158153 and this follow-up comment for details.
  • We are continuing to re-index a large amount of content, in order to fix some situations where pages were missing from the local search index.
