I have a weird problem: my EE URLs are generated with an extra "W". For instance, on,

<a href="{path='article/details'}">{title}</a>

will produce (notice that www becomes wwww):

I can't find anything in the admin where I may have typed in the URL wrong.

Does anyone have an idea for how to solve this?

Can you provide more information. Where is the 'W'? Can you show some template code that displays a url with the extra 'W'? You haven't really given us much to go on. – foamcow Jun 10 '14 at 15:52
<a href="{path='article/details'}">{title}</a>. will produce: – therooster Jun 10 '14 at 16:18
@TRiG it appears that the changes you made to the question have hidden the issue. – zzzzBov Jun 10 '14 at 21:51
@zzzzBov, in the original question, both mentions of the domain were wwww. Perhaps that was a mistake. (The domain appeared only once in the rendered question, because of a Markdown error, but it was there in the source with a four-w prefix.) – TRiG Jun 10 '14 at 22:43
@TRiG, the revision history shows you changing wwww.url to www.example, which is why I called out the issue. – zzzzBov Jun 10 '14 at 23:15

Check the site url for your site in Admin->General Configuration

Also check this in your config file.
