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

  • In the classic visual editor (CK), when the wikitext for an image or video did not include the "thumb" parameter or a directional parameter (left, right or center), the content was floated left. It will now be floated right by default.

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.

  • Thumbnail media within infoboxes (using the 'infobox' class) will no longer have margins around them.
  • Minor edits to community messages will no longer trigger user notifications.
  • Buttons in the VisualEditor will be more appropriately themed, and the editor loading failures will be more graceful.
  • On tablet computers in portrait mode, tapping on an image or video will link to the File page rather than open the media lightbox.

Select Known Issues

  • Licensed Video Swap may be unavailable for use between Wednesday and Friday, due to planned maintenance.
