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.

  • We will fix an issue where "$3" could appear in some notifications instead of expected text.
  • When affected by certain types of blocks, blocked users will no longer see everyone else as having been blocked as well.
  • An issue that caused our servers to intermittently serve some outdated content towards the end of last week should now be fixed. Let us know if you still see any problems!

Select Known Issues

  • We are looking into why some blog posts are showing the wrong 'posted on' date (often showing the current day instead).
