Technical Update: December 2, 2015

Kirkburn December 2, 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.

New Features

Mobile editing is returning!

The mobile editor will be available for section editing. It is a wikitext editor, and is available to both registered users and anonymous users (on communities where anonymous editing is enabled).

As was the case previously, edits made via this editor will be noted as "Mobile" on Recent Changes and user contributions.

Major Bug Fixes

  • We recently identified and fixed an issue that caused some GIFs to render badly. Newly uploaded GIFs will use the fixed process, and we are working on regenerating existing GIF thumbnails.

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.
