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.

Major Bugs Fixed

  • Some welcome tool user page creations were being attributed to admins rather than User:Wikia. Messages will still be signed with an admin's name, but will show under User:Wikia's contributions.

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.

  • A Map's specific URL will redirect the user to the map's page on the wikia where it was created. Changes to the map will always be logged on that wikia’s Maps log.
  • Existing maps now have an appropriate background colour set, matching previous changes to newly-created maps. This change is already live.
