Orange "Episerver" button adding namespace to path - causing broken link


This is something funky I just noticed in my development enviorment, and I'd like to fix before I push my code out to production.

It seems like my project just started adding the namespace to the defuault workarea URL. I really have no clue why.  

So instead of

<a href="localhost:port/EPiServer/Cms/?...  

it is now

<a href="localhost:port/<namespace>/EPiServer/CMS/?...

It is also adding the namespace to the links to the thumbnails for blocks and pages. 

I've looked up and down the web config in my dev enviorment and can't seem to find where the namesapce to these links are coming from.  

Any ideas on how I can get these links working again before I make a push to our production?

Hi Valina,

Does this issue only arise when you try to access the work area via the orange bar?  If so, can you provide a snippet for how you are rendering out the bar in your View?

Annnnnd I figured it out..

My coworker was working on another issue and changed the website name in the admin and forgot to change it back.  He added the namespace on his end.  

Since we both use the same development database it broke the links on my end broke :P
