Yesterday I tried Layout Builder on my wiki, and, I got way more satisfaction than I got with createplates. But it's still not perfect. Here is a list of all cons I noticed:
Wikia, make an option to change input fields size between two-lined and one-lined. I liked one-lined infobox input in createplates. But now, more than 3/4 of my layouts is infobox filling. We don't need entire line for two words and even one number.

Paragraph is simple multi-lined input, and if it's optional and blank, and it's only thing in a section, then the section will be empty, and unneeded section header will appear on page.

Wikia, ?useskin=monobook still works completely on wikis, and ?useskin=monaco partially works. Fix that error.Read more >
I see many blog posts complaining about image attribution on Wikia. Attribution MUST be removed. Why?
- Most images are fair-use, and the uploader is not author.
- Why image uploaders are marked, and text editors are not? All editors should be equal.
- I've never seen image attribution in paper encyclopedias. Wikis are electronic encyclopedias.
- It's not important for content to mark image uploaders.
