Tech:Open Directory links don't work

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

When adding a link to an Open Directory article, the link automatically has Regional/ appended to the beginning.

When it happens[edit]

Seems to happen on any page. You can see it here: http://wikitravel.org/en/Cruise_ships where the "Open Directory" link on the left hand side goes to http://dmoz.org/REGIONAL/Recreation/Travel/Specialty_Travel/Cruises , when "regional" shouldn't be there. I also tried it on the Graffiti Wall and had the same result.

What should happen[edit]

The link
[[DMOZ:/Recreation/Travel/Specialty_Travel/Cruises]]
should go to http://dmoz.org/Recreation/Travel/Specialty_Travel/Cruises

How to fix it[edit]

This should be pretty quick to fix, IB, can you look into it? – cacahuate talk 04:10, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Additional comments[edit]

If that is ever processed, the domain should in fact be http://www.dmoz.org/ since the http://dmoz.org/ one redirects there. -- 79.199.105.204 05:29, 28 April 2008 (EDT)
