This is documentation about a configuration directive, which can be placed within Movable Type’s core configuration file, mt-config.cgi, to customize the behavior of the system.

Deprecated: This config directive has been deprecated in MT5

This configuration directive specifies to restrict the blog publishing paths to the DefaultSiteURL.

The specified settings are used on the “Create new weblog” screen as the initial suggested values for the Site URL options.

A trailing slash and the string WEBLOG-NAME is appended to indicate which part should be edited to specify the desired publishing location for the blog being created.

If DefaultSiteURL is not specified in the mt-config.cgi, the system attempts to guess the correct values as in previous versions.
