Here are the latest technical updates on Fandom. 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 Bug Fixes

  • We will fix the "See full list" link in the "Appears on these pages" section on file pages with quotation marks in their name.
  • We will fix an issue where the Serbian language option was incorrectly showing some messages in Albanian.
  • We fixed an issue that affected site stability at the start of the weekend, and will be making further tweaks to avoid a recurrence of this issue.

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • We will be backporting some improvements to the {{PAGESINCATEGORY}} magic word, allowing all, pages, subcats and files parameters to be applied to that function. Visit the official documentation page for more info.
  • We will improve PNG image verification behaviour to reduce rejections of valid PNGs.
  • Another small tweak to MediaWiki:Fileexists will be made, to add a preview of the relevant image.
