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

  • The "Add new page" button on the page header will now respect user editor preferences, initiating the "Create a new article" popup for that editor.
  • Chat will receive a few updates:
    • Visitors who have not yet edited the wiki will no longer have a blank "Member since" label - it will display the account registration date instead.
    • The "Change this user's chat ban" popup will no longer display broken encoding in the title.
    • "Contributions" links on Special:ChatBanList will link to the correct location.
    • The Chat-join-the-chat message will be whitelisted (correcting a spelling mistake from the last batch).
  • The missing shared-Monobook-footer-wikia-links message on Monobook will be fixed.

Other Notable Changes

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

  • In Discussions, the 'undelete' option will become more accessible for moderators, showing as a green icon at the top right of posts.
  • We will improve the the error message shown when trying to create a wiki while blocked.

Select Known Issues

  • A variety of bug fixes to the new page header are being worked on - expect to see more this Thursday, including improved DISPLAYTITLE support and fixes for duplicate and missing article header breadcrumb links.
