Technical Update: May 22, 2012

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

  • We're releasing an updated style for image sliders for mobile devices.

Major Bugs FixedEdit

  • When an article in the main namespace had the same title as a Category page, the Category page was displaying as the top search result in a search for the article title.
  • We have fixed some wrapping issues with how the search box interacts with the AdminDashboard pages.
  • Search was not returning correct results when the search query includes multi-byte characters.
  • Page Layout Builder tasks were still showing on AdminDashboard Tasks.

Select Known IssuesEdit

  • Search suggestions are not working with Cyrillic characters.
  • SiteWideMessages do not appear on Wall pages for monobook users
  • We've temporarily disabled search suggestions and link suggestions while we work on backend issues. We hope to have a basic version of these features back up and available soon, and we'll continue to improve them from there.
