Bugfixes:

  • There was a bug in the wiki's setup that prevented you from reaching image pages in the File namespace with spaces in the url, like "File:Block_Pump %28RedPower%29.png", where as "File:Block_Pump_%28RedPower%29.png" worked.
  • Image thumbnails on the image pages in the File namespace didn't generate.

 

New extensions:

 

Template changes:

  • Carbon: Social buttons have been added in the discussion box on article pages.
  • Carbon: Header styles have been adapted to improve readability, http://ftbwiki.org/User:RZR0/Headers
  • Carbon: Bookmark page button added on article pages.
  • Carbon: Logo updated.

What about the bug that gives you an image instead of video when using the File: prefix on videos?

 

Hmmm, if we changed that to the Video: prefix... would that work?

That wouldn't work. I don't know how exactly, but Wikia embedded most videos differently than we do now. You can embed youtube videos now with {{#ev:youtube|VIDEO_ID|450}}, where 450 is the standard video width we're going to be using now. There's a more detailed description of the process here: http://www.reddit.co...wikiorg/c8bbmhi

 

We'll have to change all of the embedded videos manually I'm afraid, but aside from me there's at least 2 or 3 more people currently working on this, so the work is progressing fairly quickly.

Do <youtube> tags still work? I always preferred using those...

They don't currently, for now I've enabled this because these tags are parsed by different embedding extensions, and I'd like to limit us to a single embedding system. I'm working on making <youtube></youtube> tags an optional method for using the current system for convenience, but I'd encourage to use the system as it is.

Too bad, I prefer them because there is no uploading and it is a quick and direct link with fewer steps to take.

The current system also requires no uploading. It does the same thing, just with a different syntax.

True, but it does allow you to use services other than youtube. But as I said, I'm looking into adding the youtube syntax back in with the current embedding system.

It should simply be standardized to only use videos from youtube to make things simpler.

I can understand why it isn't, don't want to limit people's options.
