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 Features

  • A right rail module is added to Special:Search, showing the 7 most popular articles (by page views) that include at least one image.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • The related videos module was occasionally displaying as empty. (Note: this fix is already live.)
  • The title of chat windows did not always update when a wiki's name was updated.
  • Theme Designer was showing broken previews when changing a wiki's theme.
  • Darwin: while in the editor with the right rail collapsed, the preview dialog was too narrow.
  • Darwin: the font size increase was not applied to Forum and Message Wall pages.
  • Darwin: Theme Designer transparency was not applied correctly to the content area.
