Technical Update: January 18, 2017

Here are the latest technical updates on Fandom. 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 where pressing the 'Escape' key in the Monobook editor could cause the edit area to be blanked.
  • We recently fixed an issue where page names ending in '?' did not load correctly when linked in Discussions.
  • We recently fixed an issue where portable infobox images were not being resized correctly. If you still see this problem on any articles, a quick edit should get them back to normal - otherwise, they will fix themselves as article caches update in the next few days.

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • The 'forgot password' experience will be updated and will deliver a password reset link via email, rather than the new password itself.
