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

  • We will fix an issue where the loading animation for the Discussions activity feed would affect the whole page, rather than just the feed module.

Other Notable Changes

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

  • The global navigation icon for notifications will be updated. Fans of the bell icon, do not despair! It will be back soon as part of some other updates to Fandom notifications that we'll be talking about soon.
  • We recently improved the quality of WebP thumbnails sourced from JPEGs. The improved versions are dependent on caching updates.
  • We will improve the error message behaviour when an article/blog comment can't be added due to a global block.
