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.

Note: no release is planned for next Tuesday (August 15) due to a Polish holiday, the Assumption. The regular release schedule will resume on Thursday (August 17).

Major Bug Fixes

  • The Discussions page header will be updated to use more language-appropriate formatting for the post counts.
  • We recently fixed an issue where the global navigation on Discussions pages was showing the wrong text when local translations were unavailable.
  • We will be running some code that should help clean up special page category lists (such as Special:MostLinkedCategories), removing categories that have not existed for a long time.

Other Notable Changes

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

  • Featured Videos will no longer autoplay outside of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. (This behavior may be tweaked in future updates.)
