Technical Update: July 25, 2016

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

  • We will fix a case where the User namespace edit button would continue to say 'Edit profile' instead of 'View source' when the viewer does not have edit permissions.
  • We have recently fixed several cases that could cause Lua errors on some communities.

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.

  • We will update the icon shown on redirect pages to a higher quality version that takes local themes into account.
  • The Community Page link for 'Community Policies' will accept links in any namespace (including the main namespace).
