Collection base URL
The Collection base URL panel lets you configure what the root URL of your collection will look like.
This requires Collection Admin permission.
Collection URL name:
Used to uniquely identify this collection. Appears in URLs and gets used as default for the media directory location.
Collection base URL:
In many situations, you will end up wanting your root URL to be very short and look something like
http://example.com/ with nothing else attached.
You can typically achieve this by selecting either "Extra path on baseurl" or "Absolute url" here.
IMPORTANT:: your .htaccess File must be properly set up for this to fully work. See also the Important section below.
The reason there are many options available here instead of just, say "Absolute URL", is for portability of your site. By using the other options, you will be using URLs relative to your Base URL which will make it very easy to move your site to another domain, including to a development machine for local testing of changes.
This is a preview of what your base URL will look like. Use it to check your configuration.
Remember your .htaccess File must be properly set up for these settings to fully work.
Most web browsers cache redirections very aggressively which sometimes makes it hard to verify that a new URL works. Try to clear your browser caches, relaunch it or use a different browser to check when anything related to URLs doesn’t work as expected.
