Technical Update: August 3, 2015

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

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.

  • When starting a new wikia while logged out, forgetting your account password will no longer restart the process.
  • When logging in using Facebook, doing so will no longer cause issues with certain page URLs.
  • Page subheadings (e.g. 'Redirected from...') will no longer be oversized on smaller screens.
  • An incorrect link to our Google Play apps in the new user welcome email will be fixed. (Obligatory equivalent App Store link!)
  • The behaviour when changing account email addresses will be improved.
