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 a bug that caused the 'popular pages' Insights list to be empty on some communities.
  • Chat emoticons/emojis will no longer be case-sensitive. May (Happy) faces abound!

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.

  • On the Community Page admins will now be listed in a separate section above the 'top contributors' module, and they will be ordered by recent activity.

Select Known Issues

  • We are currently working on restoring functionality for Wikia Maps based on the real world.
  • We're aware that some communities have experienced an issue with custom CSS not loading today. Most cases have been fixed, and others should go back to normal as caching updates.
