I am trying to retrieve some WMS layers from geoserver so that I can display them in leaflet and I need to populate a URL field and I noticed that many of the layers that I opened up in openlayers had "GetMap&layers" vs examples that were successful with "GetFeatureInfo&Layers" when being served via URL.
