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.

New Features

  • Starting tomorrow with this release, Lua will be available upon request at Special:Contact.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Sliders will no longer display some images with big white borders and badly sized thumbnails.
  • A VisualEditor situation that caused some edits to fail to save, will be fixed.

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.

  • 'Message Wall Greeting' namespace pages will be visible to all users, rather than just the creator. Thanks, Volunteer Developers.
