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

  • The Visual/Source tabs in the classic editor will be back to their normal selves, along with a bonus fix to their rounded tab styling.
  • We will fix a situation that could cause Theme Designer previews not to work.

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 Template Type dialog will be openable using [access key] + K.
  • The Moderator user group is visible for all communities on Special:UserRights. Formerly it was only visible on communities that had the Forum or Message Wall features enabled. At this time, the group still only has moderation options for Forum and Message Wall, but we are looking ahead to expansion of the role in the future (for example, to moderate Comments).

Select Known Issues

  • We are looking into an issue with some notifications not showing, as a priority. Update: a fix for this issue is now live.
