Description Walter Vermeir 2006-01-04 15:17:54 UTC
[[wikitravel:en:Main Page]] works
[[wikitravel:Main Page]] works
[[wikitravel:nl:hoofdpagina]]  does not work
[[wikitravel:de:Hauptseite]] does not work

The problem seems to be that [[wikitravel:*]] points to http://wikitravel.org/en/ and not to 
http://wikitravel.org/

That wouldn't work.

Working URLs:
http://wikitravel.org/en/Foobar -> english wiki
http://wikitravel.org/fr/Foobar -> french wiki

URL as created by our current interwiki for wikitravel:
[[wikitravel:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/en/Foobar
-> english wiki
[[wikitravel:en:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/en/en:Foobar
-> redirect to english wiki
[[wikitravel:fr:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/en/fr:Foobar
-> 'bad title'

It looks like they don't have their system set up to redirect their local 
interwikis properly, so the non-English one fails with a bad title error.

URLs as would be created by the recommendation given on Wikitravel bug reports:
[[wikitravel:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/Foobar
-> 404 error
[[wikitravel:en:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/en:Foobar
-> 404 error
[[wikitravel:fr:Foobar]] http://wikitravel.org/fr:Foobar
-> 404 error

That would break *every* interwiki link to Wikitravel, so sounds less than ideal.
