Technical Update: August 5, 2015

Kirkburn August 5, 2015 User blog:Kirkburn

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

  • When editing a comment, then editing it again, the correct version of the comment will now be shown in the edit area.
  • Thread reply notification emails will no longer include links incorrectly pointing to standalone replies (they will point to the main thread, as intended).
  • Fixes will go live that ensure actions by logged-out users trigger the expected email notifications.

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.

  • Changing avatars will no longer show a confusing 'no file selected' message. Thanks to the Volunteer Developers for this tweak!
