In order to make a variable available to a PmWiki page you need to use 
$FmtPV (ref http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/PageVariables#custompv).

Notice the variable needs to be a PHP expression, and so in this case is 
a quoted string inside a double quoted string:
   $FmtPV['$MotherUrl'] = "'MY_URL'";

Also, always add your own settings to config.php, don't change pmwiki.php.
