Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we’re posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • A gap was appearing between level 2 and level 3 navigation menus, on special pages with Admin Dashboard styling.
  • Special:AdminDashboard pageview statistics were not updating.
  • The video addition tool will now give Wikia Video Library suggestions on non-English wikis. (This fix is already live)
  • User namespace page titles that contained a colon were not fully displayed. (This fix is already live)
  • When subpages were listed in Search results, the subpage title was not displayed. (This fix is already live)

Other Notable Changes

  • Special:TagsReport now indicates pages that have been deleted since the report was generated, and includes the report generation date and time shown at the top of the page.
    • This page also no longer requires the user to click on the checkbox. Clicking anywhere on the line selects the checkbox now.
  • In Wikia's mobile skin, images smaller than 30x30px will not be included in the media gallery lightbox.

CSS Updates

This section will showcase CSS-related changes. Please note that there may be minor changes beyond what is listed here.

  • .V2 - removed
    • This class selector was used to differentiate the old wiki navigation bar from the new version. Now that there is only the new version (V2), this class is redundant.
  • .oasis-split-screen - removed
    • Moving forward, this class selector will no longer be needed. Styles dependent on this class have been merged into core styles.
