Technical Update: July 20, 2015

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.

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.

A wide variety of updated email designs will be released including (but not limited to):

  • Updated account management emails: new account welcomes, renames, user rights changes, Facebook disconnections, and account reactivation
  • Updated article modification emails: article creations, article restorations, and category article additions
  • Updated founder emails: activity updates and post-founding emails
  • Message Wall emails will receive updated subjects, preventing situations like "Scott Lang wrote Scott Lang a new message on Scott Lang's Wall", and helping message threads stay grouped in email apps.
