We've moved to the Unified Community Platform.

It'll be very different. See this page. You can check it out and test it here.


Things we can fix

Things not up to us

  • Known bugs.
  • Hidden categories no longer remain hidden.
    • They aren't hidden at the bottom but are on top. Known issue.
  • Messages walls prior to the update are now gone.
    • It should take a while longer to convert them all. However, it's not specific to us.
  • Wanted Pages is struck through. Known issue.
  • WhatLinksHere misses indent. Known issue.
  • Gallery link missing from character, location, item, team template - probably all. Sitewide issue with caption tag.

Things that are broken

  • Main page: new comics column is too wide.
  • Editing: Infoboxes are no longer visible in Preview Mode.
  • Overall: font size might need to be a bit big bigger?
  • AbuseFilter works, the Log stript is just kaput.
  • Mediawiki:Titleblacklist? Set up an abusefiler
  • DPL lists on maintenance cats need | ordermethod = title or | ordermethod = sortkey. Purely cosmetic, not a functional blocker.
  • {{!V}}
  • Also on vdieo games: Doomsday (Lego Batman) first appearance dumb dpl namespace issue
  • {{cid}} (and {{cis}}) are broken. No rhyme or reason which are broken. For now, list cases here. The string }}-{{ breaks Cid. Fixed 32 cases, set up an abuse filter.
  • {{cis}} alignment also seems off
  • Image tabbers are shifted off-center. Made a fix, but it makes the buttons smaller. Will think of a fix later.
  • When height categories are present in a character page, some of its coding is exposed. (see Rory Regan)
  • Parameters not returning input, weird spaces removed in the diff.
  • Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure has too many {{a}} to render, it's tracked as Pages where template include size is exceeded. I've removed the page template for now but it's still broken.


Complaints

Just name things you're not happy about. Be specific, not "the loading sucks" (yes it sucks) or "bring the old editor back". Not necessarily things we can do anything about but we can at least harangue our WM with it.

  • Categories no longer display image names.
  • Line spacing could be bigger, it all feels more cramped.
  • Recent Activity Page is vastly less informative than the old Recent Activity Page.
    • Special:RecentChanges is the updated version of old Recent Changes, and is more informative than the old one, albeit a bit slower (oooh, finally I have color labels). It's not the new WikiActivity. Special:WikiActivity was a custom at-a-glance moderation tool. They removed that. I don't use it but I think Fandom dropped the ball there. A coder hacked together a custom script which is the current. It's rough around the edges but it only cares about the functionality, not esthetics. --Tupka217 08:17, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
    • Not seeing how it's more informative. It doesn't cover as long a span of time, and doesn't seem to have a button for reaching back farther in time, and it presents everything in these sketchy little data scribbles instead of the nice readable blurbs that the old page did.
      • I can't really say anything on that without further elaboration what you mean by old and new. But this is what we've got to work with. --Tupka217 11:45, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
        • The "old" page I was trying to describe looked very much like the Social Activity version of the "new" Wiki Activity page. BUT now that I've seen the Social Activity page, I notice that it does most of the things I was looking for, especially the "readable blurbs," so ahmina stop complaining for a minute and try to figure out how it works.Stoop Davy Dave (talk) 23:02, 29 October 2020 (UTC)
  • Image tabbers can be fixed by adding width: 100%; to .portable-infobox .pi-image-collection-tabs. --Ichischka 20:24, 3 November 2020 (UTC)
    • New comics column on the main page:
.wikia-slideshow-wrapper {
	width: 272px !important;
}
ul.wikia-slideshow-images.neutral {
	width: 272px !important;
}

  • Any time I try to upload a scanned image, it gets blocked due to something called "Titleblacklist." I beleive it has to do with the name of the image file that gets uploaded, but it won't take images that I name according to the wiki guidelines, leading me to believe that there is some sort of technical malfunction with the new platform.

    • Broken abusefilter, fixed. --Tupka217 19:50, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
  • Overview on Etienne Guiborg (Prime Earth) not showing up, even though History section is. Not sure what that's about. --- Haroldrocks talk 19:34, 4 November 2020 (UTC)
    • Probably related to the Shahn-Zi non-breaking space bug above. Removing all the spaces did the trick.
  • The citation-link box (whatever it's supposed to be called) no longer appears when I hover over citations. This barely affects functionality but is slightly irritating to me, because it means I have to click on the citation and get automatically sent to the bottom of the page to see what it links to.

    • ReferencePopups is a custom script, and ImportArticles is broken at the moment. Has been for... 3 days now? Annoying to not have access to my scripts. --Tupka217 12:52, 12 November 2020 (UTC)
