Hi there,

I just checked this, and yes, the entry for Chinese (Singapore) is incorrect (and has the same HTTP code as Chinese). We will fix this in a future release.

To get your site running right now, you can edit the language in the Language Manager (to be found at /wp-admin/network/settings.php?page=language-manager). Find Chinese (Singapore), edit the HTTP code to be zh-SG, and save the change.

Best regards,
