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

  • In Discussions, rapid clicks on "view older replies" will no longer load duplicate comments.
  • Also in Discussions, we will fix an issue that could prevent old posts from being edited.
  • We will fix a link in the 'three days after wiki creation' founder email that could point to the wrong URL for Discussions.

Other Notable Changes

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

  • When viewing 'reported posts' in Discussions, we will add an 'All Discussions' link on the left to help you exit that view.
  • We have updated Help:Customization policy to provide more specific guidance related to the recent page and article header design updates.

Select Known Issues

  • Chat may be unavailable for a couple of minutes after these updates go live, while we work on releasing updated chat server code. (Update: this will now occur around midday UTC+0 on Wednesday 28th instead.)
  • We are aware of an issue using existing accounts whose name include a colon (':'), and are working on a fix.
