Subfolders are no longer created by default for new Markets

We've made a change to behaviour when creating single-country markets. Previously, when a single-country market was created, a language/country subfolder was created for that market at the same time.

Now, new single-country markets default to use the same URL structure as the primary market. You can choose to configure subfolders for each of your international markets as you desire.
