Technical Update: March 21, 2016

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

  • An issue that could cause Special:ListUsers to fail to update will be fixed.

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.

  • Message Walls, Forums and comments will all warn you if you try to navigate away before submitting an unfinished post.
  • Chat, Content and Discussion moderators will be able to remove those rights from their own account (via Special:UserRights).
  • Communities with custom user groups will no longer potentially be missing the ability to promote/demote Chat, Content and Discussion moderators.
  • The button to start a new wikia will be moved back to the top level of the global navigation bar (at the far right).
  • The message shown to anonymous editors when they 'purge' an article will be friendlier. (Thanks, Volunteer Developers!)
