Where to set APP_URL?

Validation emails always point users to I was looking for the setting that changes to my domain, but no luck.

I tried:

  1. Going to the django admin and changing the site domain (no effect)

  2. Hunting down where this var is set in the source code. Clues lead to APP_URL, but adding that to my changes nothing either.

Any ideas?

It's in the live settings -> forum parameters and urls.

The default is, which is not helpful, we'll need to change that.

thanks Evgeny! for other readers: "live settings" is the settings accessible directly from the forum website (not the admin menu).

went to keep getting Site matching query does not exist. as a warning and no base url being set, same for any settings on this page, what could be the problem? fixed by doing this: python shell from django.contrib.sites.models import Site new_site = Site.objects.create(domain='', name='') print you should see a 1 in there after print, the same id from your settings file
