Technical Update: June 24, 2014

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

  • Large, tall images will no longer be displayed with the bottom half cut off when opened in the lightbox.
  • The Special:WikiFeatures switch to turn on the Blog feature will be fixed.
  • Several situations that could cause incorrect errors on Special:WikiaVideoAdd will be resolved.

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.

  • Thumbnail media within infoboxes using the 'infobox-table' class will no longer have margins around them. (See also a previous similar change)
  • Special:Contact will no longer unnecessarily use a fixed-width font for the issue description area. (Thanks, Volunteer Developers!)
