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
- The VisualEditor will now be visible in the Edge browser (the successor to Internet Explorer).
- Portable infobox image captions will now render special characters correctly.
- Earlier today, we fixed a bug that caused Chat to be unavailable on some communities over the weekend.
- Also earlier today, we fixed an issue that prevented avatars from being updated.
Other Notable Changes
Detailed CSS updates can be found at http://report.wikia.net - the diffs show changes to .css, .scss, .tmpl.php, .html, .sass and .mustache files in Wikia's codebase.
- The 'best practices' banner in the classic editor preview dialog will be retired, allowing a larger preview area.
