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 FeaturesEdit

  • After a delay in the review process with Apple, the LyricWiki app is now live in the iTunes store for iPhone.

Major Bugs FixedEdit

  • Section titles were sometimes missing from Preview window in the new editor redesign.
  • Digest messages for wiki founders were showing some database code instead of wiki names in some cases.
  • Search suggestions weren't handling namespaces properly.

Other Notable ChangesEdit

  • The Search field on Community Central now searches Community Central by default (rather than all of Wikia).

Select Known IssuesEdit

  • In some new wikis, founders are not receiving Creator achievement badges. If this happens to you, please report it to us.
  • If you have Chat open on two different wikis, you may get disconnected from both of them at once.
  • Custom links on the toolbar are sometimes disappearing if you edit your toolbar frequently.
  • Some users are still displaying innacurate "member since" dates on Profile pages.

Update 7/20/11: The tool for uploading avatars disappeared with this release due to some conflicting code changes -- sorry about that. We'll get it back soon!
