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

Major Bugs Fixed

  • The beta VisualEditor's loading indicator now works correctly when opening the editor more than once on a page.
  • Single log entries in RecentChanges were styled incorrectly. (Thanks to the Volunteer Developers for this.)
  • Avatars were not updating correctly.

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.

  • Wikia has completed the second and expected to be final round of our image migration work, which means we have a much more scalable and faster image storage architecture.

Select Known Issues

  • The ability to drag and modify images is currently missing in the editor's gallery tool.
