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 have fixed an issue where some SVG images were not displaying properly. This fix went live today.
    • This fix has been reverted due to some unintended side-effects. We'll work on a better fix.
  • An issue that caused the 'pagetitle' text to be incorrect in certain situations has been fixed. This fix is already live.

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 will be testing a feature on a few communities which helps users reach the intended article when external sites leave off special characters from the end of URLs (e.g. a final bracket not being included in the link).
