Question about BASE URL inside Dashboard - General

Topics: General
Oct 5, 2012 at 3:55 PM

I do not know whether it was already there in previous versions, but now I do see inside the Dashboard tab General a BASE URL with a localhost:number. Can anybody emphasize on this:

  1. Should the URL localhost always be the same as inside Webmatrix localhost ?
  2. When I publish a site out of Webmatrix, should I have to change this URL to the URL where the website is located (example:  www.website.nl)

I did not see anything mentioned in the documentation, that's why I hope someone can answer.

The Base Url can be used by any module that needs it. The only 2 modules that I know of that currently use it are the Vandelay Industries module and the Orchard.Users module. Orchard.Users needs it when generating email messages that include a link to the website. Vandelay Industries needs it for one of its features that process the HTML of BodyPart (and I believe TextFields as well) and process the "src" attribute of <img> elements.
