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.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • The forum "Who's involved?" module no longer includes a "block" link for users who cannot block.
  • Category sort keys did not work for blog posts. Thanks go to the Volunteer Developer team for this fix!
  • Incorrect avatars and comment rights were displaying for some comment sections. This fix is already live.

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.

  • Users on Android tablets will now see the main Wikia skin instead of the mobile skin.
  • A loading indicator has been added to the VisualEditor.
