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.

If you are about to begin a long Thanksgiving weekend, we wish you an happy one! Wikia will be releasing a site update as usual - and we'll try and make sure Wikia remains available when the fight breaks out over who gets to carve the turkey.

Major Bug Fixes

  • We have identified an issue that caused some wikia creations to get 'stuck' - this will be fixed.

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.

  • We will be adding a variety of new items to Special:TagsReport, such as the new Twitter, Spotify and SoundCloud tags. (Note: usages will show up after pages containing them are edited.)
