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.

Note: this release includes the items from Tuesday's postponed release.

Major Bug Fixes

  • Forums will no longer be missing the 'Post' button in the Monobook layout.

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • The Appreciation prototype will be retired, as planned. Over the next few weeks we will be evaluating how well it worked, and whether to bring back this kind of feature in the future. If you have any remaining thoughts on it, please do let us know via Special:Contact/feedback!
  • The icon representations for themes (seen in Theme Designer and when creating a new wiki) will be spruced up.
