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.

New Features

  • The new visual editor just went live Wikia Labs! This is a temporary adjustment phase that will allow wikis to turn it on and off as needed for at least a couple of weeks, until it becomes our new permanent editor. See our blog post, Try the New Wikia Editor, for more information.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Duplicate links were appearing in "Followed Pages" lists when a user commented on an article.
  • We fixed a bunch of bugs on the new content editor in preparation for the Wikia Labs launch. These include some design issues with darker skins, as well as a glitch that was forcing people to follow pages even if they had disabled that user preferences.

Select Known Issues

  • Some plain text emails are displaying "<p></p>" tags in their content. We'll have this fixed soon.
  • We've been having issues with image reuploads, which affects content images, avatar changes, and other things. While most of these are already fully resolved, we're still keeping a close eye on the situation. If you see any issues relating to this, first clear your browser's cache and try to reupload again. Then, if it's still not working, report it to us with as much detail as possible.
