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.

New Features

  • The previously planned breakpoints and typography update will go live. Please check out this blog post for more details on how it tweaks the way Wikia adapts to various screen sizes!

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.

  • Insights will be gaining some new sorting options: you will be able to sort by pageviews over the previous week or month, or by recent increase in pageviews. Let us know what you think!

Major Bugs Fixed

  • An issue that caused a large space to show at the top of the page while using the VisualEditor will be fixed.

Select Known Issues

  • We are continuing to work on some issues around slow notification updates, rare instances of blank pages, and images (especially avatars) not updating correctly.
