Duplicate language code in url

    Hopefully this is the last issue I have to plague the forums with! I seem to be good at breaking things the past couple weeks.

    My current problem is that I turned on localization of content on my site, but now I'm getting duplicate language codes or sometimes both language codes in the url. For instance, clicking on the site logo goes to:


    Or using a language switcher to switch to english from french goes to:


    However my local test site works fine and I tried to copy exact settings in languages and site aliases. One thing that is different is the broken site is from years of upgrades and has old localization language files. Whereas the local test site is completely fresh.

      Gah nevermind I forgot about the web.config. The usual culprit after a lot of upgrades!
      The persona bar settings > server > applications showed me the friendly url type was set to HumanFriendly when it should be Advanced. I edited the web.config and changed it to advanced and now the problem is gone.
