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.
Note: this release includes the items from Tuesday's postponed release.
Major Bug Fixes
- We will fix an issue in Discussions where admins and moderators were sometimes unable to recategorize posts.
- The new global footer had a few incorrect links for international communities. These will now point to the correct pages.
- Message Walls will no longer be missing the 'Post' button in the Monobook skin.
Other Notable Changes
- The ability to create real world maps will be removed from the Wikia Maps feature, since real world maps are no longer functioning.
- This week we will begin running a script to remove real world maps from article pages.
- We've backported the newer MediaWiki 'diff' styling, along with the Special:Diff feature.
