So when I click on Ho Chi Minh City in the Vietnam article it takes me to a the norweigian template editting section for HCMC. Seems kinda not right...

I get the same problem (Norwegian article) from the Malaysia article, when clicking on the Malacca article right now?? Strange
In fact, every article in the Malaysia article links to a non-existent Norwegian one?
Bug?

I see this too. Every single link within the content of the regular Malaysia article goes to no.travellerspoint.com
The main and section [edit] links for the article and relative, so stay on www. Below the header, only photos and user profile links (for photo credits) have absolute hrefs to www; all other absolute hrefs go to no

Sounds like some caching being stuffed up. I'll have a look into it!

Right, I've found the problem. Surprised this happened more in the past now that I know what the issue was.

Apparently if someone was writing a Norwegian blog entry, when they posted it, it would set the subdomain used by the code formatting to "no". That carried across to the wiki as well.

It would then be set back to "www" when the next blogger came along and wrote an English one.

I guess it might not have happened that often because a) Norwegian bloggers can use the Norwegian version of Travellerspoint and b) there are quite a few blog entries being added each day meaning it wouldn't stay set to "no" for very long.

I've uploaded a fix that should avoid this problem in the future.

I'll also try to find out exactly which articles were affected by the problem (it's not just the Malaysia one, I know that much) . If it's not too many, then a small edit to each of them will fix them up.

There were about 20 articles affected, so I just went through them all and made minor changes. All sorted now.
