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.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • A script will be run to fix an issue that prevented some wall and forum replies from being restored. This script is already in progress.
  • A situation that could result in the welcome tool welcoming User:Wikia will be fixed.
  • The updated global navigation bar will no longer overlap anchor links. This fix is already live.
  • An issue that caused some image thumbnails to display incorrectly will be fixed. This fix is already live.

Other Notable Changes
