Kirkburn November 4, 2015 User blog:Kirkburn

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


Collapsible infobox groups in action

Major Bug Fixes

  • The action of unticking the "Hide all" preference for the "My Favorite Wikis" profile section will no longer be mysteriously reversed.
  • Some additional fixes around Facebook plugin localization will go live.

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.

  • For security reasons, the Verbatim feature will be retired later this week. Please see this forum thread for more details on why this change is being made, and how to deal with it.

Select Known Issues

  • We are continuing to look into incorrect thread anchor links, and we're also investigating an issue causing some forum boards to disappear from view.
