Anybody else already disliking the new wiki format update? So far I've noticed that when creating a page a link will not automatically appear when you begin to type it in, and categories aren't automatically added for the page based on what is entered in the infobox. Also the "Following" tab on our user profile page is gone which was a convenient way to keep track of pages, categories, images, etc that I created in chronological order.

A lot of features aren't working/enabled at the moment. Autocomplete is coming soon. Moviesign has already fixed a huge amount of the issues that have cropped up with the update. Hopefully some of the things you listed will be fixed.

The section division and edit links are now much too prominent for my taste. On the other hand I have to say that I find the colour coding during editing and especially when looking up what's been changed in edits quite helpful (even though I am not fond of the colour scheme they have chosen). But the loss of functionalities, especially the auto-completion of links, is really a pain.

I've really got to echo everything Daranios said. The color scheme is extremely difficult to make out now, especially if you use screen gimmers. It might also just be me, but it feels like the wiki itself loads quite a bit more slowly than before.

Auto-complete is coming very soon! We will be making a few adjustments to the wiki style in the coming days, it's just been really busy this past week or two. If you have visibility issues with the editor (that are not local to this wiki), please report that to Fandom using Special:Contact. The wiki should be accessible to everyone. If there are local changes that cause a problem, please let me know. As I type this, I'm looking at light purple text on a white background, and it could use more contrast IMO.

When using the preview from the Source Editor, at least, it doesn't show the infobox in the preview. Very frustrating.

That was only happening for the {{Person}} template (that I know of) and I have changed it so it doesn't happen. I'm still trying to figure out the best way to report the bug to Fandom.

Hey Moviesign, just wanted to say great thanks for all the work you are doing to fix the problems!

Very belated thanks from my side also for what's been improved already! I have few more things not working as they were before the update, and would like to know if this can be bad settings by me or if they are general, and if there is a solution.

Thanks for any input!

All I can really reply is that, yes, Fandom still has a ton of problems to fix since the forced migration. :(

Well, thanks for the feedback anyway, so at least I know it's not my settings somehow. And the preview of autocompleted long links was fixed just a few days ago, so hopefully Fandom will get around to care about the other problems as well.
