Other Notable Changes

  • The contents of the "Around Wikia's Network" footer will be lazy-loaded.

Select Known Issues

  • Share button pop-out is not showing page-specific Twitter and Facebook counts.

Questions? Comments? Feel free to leave them below. And if you have additional bugs to report, please send them to us via Special:Contact.

UPDATE: There were some minor issues with today's release, and with the short week for the US holiday, the decision was made to roll back the changes and postpone the updates until the next scheduled release. We're of course disappointed that this will delay the launch of the new Spanish and French home pages, but check in next week for all that and more!
