You shouldn't be changing Defaults.py. See

This isn't the problem though (unless you have things in mm_cfg.py that
override your Defaults.py changes). The problem is that changes to
affect web_page_url for existing lists. You have to run fix_url.py
(runs under bin/withlist; run bin/fix_url.py for instructions) to
update existing lists after you change any of these. See
