Viewing Web URL required for publishing to local folder

Web URL required for publishing to local folder



User: Mark B. 27 days ago
What is the purpose of the extra requirement of having to include a web URL for publishing to a local folder? What does it add to the published data? I am running 3.5.0. I don't recall having this constraint in a previous version.

For our testing the files are transferred to a in-house server that has no outside connection. What can I do to get around this issue?

Thanks

Hi Mark,

The URL has always been required when publishing to a folder.

It is needed to make sure your website works properly when published.

You can enter any URL in there that you want if you are just testing your website.

Thanks Paul for the information.

Will that bogus URL cause problems if I transfer directly to a host site from my server? It is a quality control thing.

Hi Mark,

No it shouldn't cause a problem. It is used mostly for SEO stuff and a few other minor areas.
