Technical Update: September 16, 2014

Here are the latest technical updates at Wikia. Keep in mind that our system updates happen every Wednesday, so we're posting this on a Tuesday to give you advance notice. Also note that we change hundreds of tiny details every week, so these are just the highlights.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Viewing a Right-To-Left (RTL) content wikia with a Left-To-Right (LTR) user language will no longer result in some misaligned elements.
  • An issue that caused a variety of 'dirty diff' situations in the VisualEditor will be fixed. This is already live.

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.

  • We will be removing the restriction on changing a page's title through the {{DISPLAYTITLE}} magic word (setting $wgRestrictDisplayTitle to false). This will allow a greater control over a page's title as well as improving SEO without the need of JavaScript.
