Technical Update: November 18, 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.

Major Bug Fixes

  • An issue that could cause some infoboxes not to display on iOS devices has been fixed. This fix is already live.
  • Issues recently affecting RuneScape Wiki have been fixed. This fix is already live.
  • An issue that could cause the 'your account is unconfirmed' banner to show multiple times at once will be fixed.

Other 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.

  • If the '/wiki/' is missing from a URL, we will now always add it. (Previously, this would only occur if a matching article name existed.)
  • We will be reducing the number of H1s on a page from four to one, leaving the article title H1. This may potentially affect some custom CSS - the other H1s (such as the wordmark) have been converted to H2s. This does not affect H1s used within article content, though these remain discouraged.

Select Known Issues

  • A rogue elephant recently sat on the Visual/Source tabs in the classic editor, causing them to get a little squished. They are receiving medical attention, and should be back to their normal selves in the next site update.
