Happy Wednesday, gang!
This Release Highlights post is early this week because we're only doing one Unified Community Platform release during the shortened holiday week.
As mentioned in this blog, our team investigated the functionality of the 2010 Wikieditor, which no longer receives active development from the Wikimedia Foundation, to see if it could be built into or onto the actively developed 2017 Editor. The most significant bit of that functionality was the CodeEditor. I am happy to announce that, as of this release, the CodeEditor functionality has been deployed onto the 2017 Editor.
That was a major blocker for custom CSS on your wikis. The rights issue has been hotfixed and local admins are now able to edit the CSS on your UCP wikis. Additionally, personal CSS is available through UCP.fandom.com for users who like having global personal CSS. Custom JS remains blocked, as we need to recreate the Content Review system on the Unified Community Platform.
The MSUpload extension has been recreated on the 2017 Editor, listed as Mass Upload with the universal upload button, allowing you to upload multiple files in one swoop. The Mass Upload feature also allows drag and drop selection of files to upload.
A bug with interwiki transcluding was corrected on the UCP, allowing its use. Bug has been reopened, due to issues presented upon release.
Official Wiki Marker
When wikis overlaps are detected in the Create New Wiki process, the displayed wikis will now indicate if one is an Official Wiki community, letting users know that there is an established relationship between the wiki community and the entity making the associated content.
The rest of this release focused on minor bugs and preparation for other feature releases.
One of the bugs we've gotten a lot of questions about is the image transparency bug, in which images with transparent backgrounds are displaying with white backgrounds on UCP wikis. A fix is expected soon.
To focus the feedback flow and make it easier for us to process all the awesome stuff you're sending in, only the most recent Release Highlights will be open as a thread for replies. When we have a new one, the last one will get closed. Cheers!
