    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.


    • We're releasing a lightweight editor for Message Wall that includes both a Visual Mode and a Source Mode. (The mode will match whichever mode you use in your regular page editing.) Both modes add buttons for Bold, Italics, Link, Photo, Video. You'll be able to test this editor on Community Test on Wednesday, and it will be released to all English Wikis with Message Wall enabled soon after.

    • Emoticons will once again work in chat.
    • Problems with changes to a wiki's CSS and JS file n…

    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.



    • Our Mobile pages will now include quick links to allow for sharing on Twitter, Facebook, Google Plus, and Email.

    Also, as we had previously announced, this will go live this week:

    • We're updating our Log In and Sign Up forms, and we'll release the changes to Community Central (and a few other wikis) this week for testing (with a release across all English wikis shortly to follow). More info coming soon in a full blog post.

    • Anonymous users will once again get notifications for messa…

    • Vimeo videos can once again be uploaded using the Video Embed Tool. An API change on Vimeo's end had prevented our uploader from properly grabbing the necessary data.
    • Patrolled edits preferences seemed out of place in their previous placement under our new Special:Preferences system, so they will now have their own section in the "Under the Hood" tab.
    • Special:BookSources was highly outdated with 404 errors and malformed links being constructed by clicking on some of the links. We…

    As many of you know, we’ve been working on Message Wall — a new alternative to User Talk Pages that lets you have a public conversation in a fast, powerful, and organized way. During the early testing phase, you gave us boatloads of feedback that influenced our development process. Today, we’re excited to announce that thanks to you, we’ve made many improvements to Message Wall, and it’s now available in Labs. Your admins can enable it on your wiki whenever they wish!


    Admins can enable or disable it. Message Wall is now a Labs product, which admins can turn it on or off via Special:WikiFeatures. “Labs” means that it’s still in beta, and we’re looking forward to improving it as we learn more about how it’s used. It might not be in Labs forev…

    • Message Wall will be added to Wikia Labs later this week, and we'll provide an in-depth overview of its recent improvements at that time.

    • The Welcome Bot has been fixed. Here's an explanation of what happened: The bot was only greeting users once globally. That means if a user edited two wikis for the first time in two days, they would only be greeted on the first one they contributed to, not both.
    • Links to the Admin Dashboard were appearing twice on the user toolbar (once on the…
