Settings up editor server gets the frontend urls.


We have a multilanguage site and split the editor server from the frontend servers.
The editor server as different url setup than the Frontend.

The problem is that when visiting the editor server in View Mode to validate your work (editoral content) the menu and link URLs points to the frontend server urls. (E.g. using @Url.contentUrl())

Our setup is following, as I have tested on cms 9 Ally website too.

  • epi.localedit - is editor url Set as "Edit Type" in admin mode -> manage website. 
  • - Belgium test url. Mapped to NL-BE

I also want to use French belgium, fr-Be. However the problem is about the Edit server (epi.localedit ) getting the frontend urls ( on its links when surfing the site.
Again expected would be epi.localedit/nl-be. (it only gets this when I remove the mapping nl-be from

What is your setup in admin mode with the "types" of hosts? Primary, redirects, edit?

No primary or redirects, only one edit host. 

took a temporary screenshot (available in 3 days)


Host Name | Culture | Type | Scheme

epi.local.en | en | Primary | | sv | Primary |

epi.localedit | - | Edit | | nl-BE | Primary |

I tested settings primary to on the culture once, but no different result.
