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

  • We will fix an issue that could cause pagination to be missing on some Insights lists.

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 Yoda image (left) is a rich pin. The place setting image on the right is not a rich pin.

  • Pages from Wikia pinned to Pinterest will now be "rich pins", always retaining the source URL and showcasing the source community.
  • We will retire the "Recent changes across Wikia" box, currently seen at the top of Special:RecentChanges. Afterwards, the "Recent changes options" box will still be collapsible, but will default to being open.
  • We will retire the small template page tooltip that was used to prompt template classification updates.
  • We will remove the non-existing 'unprotect' right from Content Moderators. Unprotecting is part of the 'protect' right.
  • We have previously fixed a few situations where Discussions Moderators would still be listed as 'moderators'.
  • ImportJS can now be used with Dev Wiki scripts.
