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 Bug Fixes

  • An issue that caused some emails to Wikia to be rejected over the past 24 hours has been fixed. This fix is already live.
  • An issue where the infobox migration tool could ignore template permissions has been fixed. This fix is already 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.

  • MediaWiki:Pagetitle has been added to the MediaWiki namespace whitelist. This change is already live. More additions are still planned.
  • The 'wikia in your language' notification banner is now more intelligent, linking to matching article names on other communities. This change is already live.
  • Clicking on the 'Wikia' logo in the global navigation bar now behaves more intelligently for non-English languages. This change is already live. (Yes, we're aware this seems to be running theme in today's notes!)
