Technical Update: July 22, 2015

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

  • We will add a switch that allows admins to disable anonymous editing - check out Bert's blog post for more background about this.

Major Bug Fixes

  • Uncyclopedia recently experienced issues with logging in - a fix for this has already gone live.
  • We are rolling out server-side improvements to how new wikias are created, which should reduce the risk of errors.

Other Notable Changes

Detailed CSS updates can be found at http://report.wikia.net - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

  • We are rolling out server-side updates to user preferences - however, this work will be entirely invisible to users. If you do spot anything strange happening, please let us know!
