Technical Update: January 13, 2015

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

  • Shared Help will no longer misbehave, incorrectly showing the wrong (or no) articles in place of the real contents.

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 editor 'No preference' user preference will be retired, as previously discussed - any users still using it will be migrated to the 'VisualEditor' option. As before, users remain free to change their preference.
  • The WAM leaderboard has been redesigned and now reflects the seven different verticals (or "hubs") into which wikias are categorized.

Select Known Issues

  • At this time, Wikia apps are temporarily unavailable via Google Play. We are working with Google to resolve this and the apps should be available again soon.
