Here are the latest technical updates on FANDOM. 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.

Major Bug Fixes

  • Printing pages from Firefox will now include all expected content, rather than a single page of article content.
  • We will fix an issue that caused problems for some Semantic MediaWiki functionality (such as Semantic Drilldown).
  • We recently fixed an issue where "alt=" was being displayed on image placeholders.
  • We recently fixed an error that could cause some image description pages to display a blank page.
  • We recently fixed an issue that resulted in odd behaviour on some types of Message Wall links (where they pointed to the main page of a wiki, or a blank page).

Other Notable Changes

Recent mobile app updates are listed on Apps Technical Updates, and detailed site CSS-related updates can be found at

  • We will be disabling welcome tool posts for anonymous editors, since they were not effective at notifying the relevant people. Welcome posts for logged in users remain unaffected.
  • We recently improved the stability of Semantic MediaWiki on FANDOM which will improve performance when the site is in read-only mode.
