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

  • The inline OGG media player will be fixed.
  • Inline images will no longer have trailing spaces.

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.

  • The methods used to get article text snippets for use on related pages and elsewhere will be updated. These new snippets offer increased quality by eliminating markup and attempting to provide an accurate synopsis.

Select Known Issues

  • The welcome tool wishes to remain anonymous for the moment and is leaving some welcome messages as User: We're trying to convince it that this is not a great idea and that it's OK to be known as User:Wikia.
