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

  • Galleries were not displaying properly in Forum threads.
  • The license text in the editor now renders correctly. This issue also affected some blog comment text after posting a comment.
  • Special:WhatLinksHere was cut off when the list reached a Wall or Forum link.

Other Notable Changes

  • 'Read more' sections now use images that are 200x100px or larger (rather than 75x75px), to ensure quality image choice. (See here for more detail about this technology).
  • Special:BrokenRedirects no longer lists interwiki redirects as broken.

CSS Updates

  • A new section is arriving in the technical update! We'll list noteworthy changes here, when those occur. In a few weeks we will also start including a link to a report that details many of the smaller CSS/HTML changes that happen on the site with each release.
