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

  • The filename for .ogg files now displays properly on Special:NewFiles.
  • On file pages, the file history table will be treated the same as a wide table within an article, and add a button to expand it to its full width if needed.
  • On the updated file page layout, links to article talk pages were not being properly displayed.
  • Video thumbnails in galleries now display correctly.
  • Multiple tweaks to the welcome system to improve performance and user experience.

Other Notable Changes

  • In the Monobook skin, the previous layout for file pages is restored.

Select Known Issues

  • Category:Video is being removed from the video file page when a non-Wikia Video Library video is added to an article via the Video Embed Tool.
  • On file pages, descriptions for images from Wikimedia Commons are being adding to the File History tab rather than the About tab.
  • If a new version of a video has been reverted, the video does not return to original version and becomes an image.
