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.

Update: today's code release has been cancelled. The next code release will the regular Tuesday update next week.

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 special syntax highlighted editor currently used on portable infobox pages will be rolled out to all template pages, to give a consistent user experience.
  • For performance reasons, the reply button will be switched off when a Message Wall thread reaches 500 replies. Existing threads that break this limit will continue to display, but new posts cannot be added.

Select Known Issues

  • We are investigating an issue where anchor links (e.g. "#3") within threads are not behaving correctly, getting 'stuck' on one number. Apologies for extra stress on your scroll wheels!
  • Wikia Maps are occasionally inaccessible with an error message that the map server can not reached.
