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

  • Certain forms of <youtube> tags will no longer cause article edits to fail.

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.

  • The old 'Share' button (which appeared next to the 'Contribute' button) will be going away, since the new sharing options are live.
  • Special:ApiExplorer will have better coloring on dark theme communities. Thanks to the Volunteer Developers for this tweak!

Select Known Issues

  • Some long article titles are line-breaking in the middle of words - this is not intentional!
