Technical Update: January 11, 2016

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 - 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.
