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 with the new login form (seen on Community Central and most international counterparts), where you are not always immediately showed as logged in, will be fixed.
  • We recently pushed a fix for confirmation emails not always being successfully sent.

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.

  • We are introducing native support for VK widgets (popular with Russian users). This is already live - see the Russian help page for details!
  • We are starting to roll out the Help:JavaScript review process on more English-language communities - this will be a gradual process as we continue to test and evaluate the new tools.
    • To tell whether it is enabled on your community, view a community JS page and look for the right rail review module.
    • We know that almost every community is interested in having this enabled! For now, we aren't taking beta requests - but we are working hard to get this rolled out for more and more communities. We'll provide updates on our progress in future technical updates.
    • If you have feedback on the tool, please let us know via Special:Contact/feedback!
