Technical Update: March 8, 2011

Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we’re posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

New FeaturesEdit

  • Created Special:CreateTopList and listed it on Special:SpecialPages for easy Top 10 List creation.
  • Launched the LyricWiki Lyrics mobile app for Android.

Major Bugs FixedEdit

  • <wikiarelatedpages-heading> code was exposed on some wikis.
  • phpbb forums weren’t loading properly.
  • Pywikipediabot usage was showing error messages.
  • Page edits via API were showing error messages.
  • Additional founder emails were being sent.

Other Notable ChangesEdit

  • We're in the early testing phases for a new chatroom feature for wikis. More updates soon!

Select Known IssuesEdit

  • Some Special pages now are showing a “Talk” page bubble. Special pages should not have discussion or talk pages and we are working to correct this.
  • Image servers continue to be a bit buggy this week, so if you upload an image or update an image and do not see the change reflected on the wiki in a number of minutes, please contact us.
