The problem with those is that they actually show "No articles link to this page." at the bottom, which is what drives the orphaned page setting. Is there any reason we're going with the version Vlore instead of Vlorë? If Vlorë is the more correct way to write it, then the main guide should probably also be that one, no?

That's true, but I wonder if there is a original article which is on the main page (Albania), what is the use of adding the redirected one on the orphaned articles page? It does have a parent article, although it's redirected

The problem is basically that those pages don't have any links pointing to them. There's a link pointing to their 'redirect page', but it's more difficult to have a script that then also calculates which those redirect to and add in those links to the 'linkcount'. That linkcount is calculated every time you save a change to the parent page, so it then goes through all the links and saves/counts them. At that stage it doesn't see that link so it doesn't add it.

Is there a reason for using the 'wrong' spelling as the final page?
