I would reiterate that we are not asking the user the enter a URL. The
help text makes it clear (or should) that only a path is to be
entered. The 'custom URL' is the the path by which the node will be
accessed and IS a URL.

That being said, I think the latest patch could use some improvement
in the wording of the prompt text. I'll post my comments in the bug.
