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

  • We're adding a "Read More" section to articles in the mobile skin, which will be similar to the "Read More" content you see at the bottom of articles in a full browser.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Our Game Guides app for Android was experiencing runtime errors.
  • Users in some locations were intermittently unable to load the editor.
  • The Theme Designer was not accepting images with a .jpeg file extension (normal .jpg files have been fine).

Other Notable Changes

  • We're updating your User Preferences page so that items are grouped and listed in a way that's clearer and more useful (for example: all email notification settings will now be in the same section).

Select Known Issues

  • The Quick Stats section of the Admin Dashboard is showing "0" views.
  • Chat kickbans are not showing up in logs for some wikis.
