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

  • We will fix several issues that were affecting wikis with Semantic MediaWiki enabled, including Special:Images display issues, page deletion issues, and some Monobook problems.
  • We will fix an issue where, on wikis with article comments disabled, blog comments were not being shown on the mobile layout.
  • An issue that could cause errors on wikis using a shared image repository will be fixed.

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 updating Semantic MediaWiki, used on a few wikis, to version 2.4.6.
  • FANDOM's 'default' accounts will be switched from Wikia/WikiaBot and Fandom/FandomBot to FANDOM and FANDOMbot.
  • We will be updating where Featured Videos and images are displayed in portable infoboxes on the mobile layout.
  • As we no longer support the iPad app My Wikia, it has been removed from the iOS App Store.
