Technical Update: May 11, 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.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • An issue that could prevent the Achievements feature from being used on brand new communities will be fixed.
  • Emails about new blog comments will no longer sometimes list the wrong details.
  • An incorrect error message, displayed when logging in while creating a new community and typing the wrong password, 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.

  • The Insights feature will be arriving on non-English communities!

Select Known Issues

  • We are investigating an issue that can cause user notifications to take several minutes to update.
  • We are also looking into reports of old user avatars showing up instead of the latest versions.
