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

Detailed CSS updates can be found at http://report.wikia.net - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.

  • An issue that caused Chat to stop working for several hours earlier today has been fixed. The issue was due to socket.io failing to renew their security certificate, causing an important part of Chat to stop loading. This fix is already live.
  • YouTube videos can once again be added via the VisualEditor's 'Add Media' tool. This fix is already live.
  • Yesterday, we ran a script to fix a bug that prevented Achievements from being enabled on some communities. If you come across anywhere where this still isn't working, please let us know!
