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

  • An issue that could cause the Achievements feature to be unavailable on new communities will be fixed.
  • A validation issue affecting email addresses with long TLDs will be fixed.
  • Users that opted out of most Wikia emails are once again able to receive 'forgot password' emails. This fix is already live.

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.

  • Link suggestions will be available in the summary inputs on Special:Upload and Special:MultipleUpload. Thanks to the Volunteer Developers for this tweak!
  • On communities that have the new login form enabled (currently Community Central and most international counterparts), the old login experience has now been replaced for secondary access points - for example, when trying upload a photo within the editor while logged out. This change is already live.
