Technical Update: May 9, 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

  • We will fix a point of confusion around the account reactivation flow (after requesting to close an account).
  • We recently fixed an issue where WAM wasn't listing newer communities.

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.

  • We recently updated the 'not a valid wikia' page to include a search link, to help visitors find the community they were looking for.
  • The Hero Image feature is being decommissioned and will be removed from Labs.
  • The mobile skin navigation will be updated, with a focus on making the search option easier to use.
