And.... we're back!

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.

This week's update is a bit light because of the holidays, but we'll be back in full force next week.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • We're releasing some fixes to our new Mobile skin to remove some instances of overlapping content, and make it easier to view tables that are too wide for a screen. There may be some caching issues for the first 48 hours after this release, but they'll clear up if you purge the page. (To purge a page, just add ?action=purge to the end of any URL).
  • Links to article and blog comments in Special:WikiActivity were not leading the user directly to the comment, instead to the top of the page the comment was on.

Select Known Issues

  • Layouts created using PageLayoutBuilder can not be deleted, protected, or unprotected at this time.

Questions? Comments? Feel free to leave them below. And if you have additional bugs to report, please send them to us via Special:Contact.
