    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 adding a "Read More" section to articles in the mobile skin, which will be similar to the "Read More" content you see at the bottom of articles in a full browser.

    • Our Game Guides app for Android was experiencing runtime errors.
    • Users in some locations were intermittently unable to load the editor.
    • The Theme Designer was not accepting images with a .jpeg file extension (normal .jpg files have been fine).

    • We're updating your User Preferences page so that items are grouped and l…

    Every year, we put feature development on hold for a few weeks in December and focus on planning for the new year. As a result, there will be no major releases until January. So in the meantime, please enjoy a sneak preview of our Wiki Community Holiday Card, created by our members. (The final card will be available soon, and we'll let you know where to find it!)

    Hi there! As promised in our last blog post, the Mobile Team has a holiday present for you. Close your eyes and...open! It's a new version of our mobile skin! Now go ahead and act surprised like the blog title didn't give it away.

    Our mobile skin was long overdue for an update, and this version lays the foundation for more improvements in the future. It's optimized for both iPhone and Android (which covers 95% of our users), and we think you'll like the changes we've made.


    The size of phone screens makes it difficult to read multiple column layouts. To combat this, the new mobile skin now has single-column layouts, which solves common problems such as content overlap (which you can see in the "before" photo below). You will notice that the s…

    • Wikis using the new expanded navigation will now have a "Share" button next to "Contribute". Clicking the Share button opens a list of options for sharing that page, including via Facebook, Twitter, or Email. This list is hidden by default until the button is clicked.

    • We resolved some issues with the search field logic. Now, if you search for a pagename that includes the namespace, it should take you to that page; if you search for a pagename without a namespace, it will try to …

    At Wikia, we make dozens of improvements to the site every week -- fixing bugs, introducing new features, and improving our interface so that it’s easier and more powerful. To help keep you aware of major releases, we write blog posts, update help pages, and sometimes send out sitewide messages. But what about the small, every day fixes? For those, we have Technical Updates.

    Every Tuesday, we put together a list of the top changes and known issues that we think you’re most likely to notice or wonder about, and then we publish it on Community Central. We keep the format clean and simple (just the facts) so you can easily find the information you’re looking for each week.

    Why do we post our Technical Updates on Tuesdays? Because our weekly code…
