Description

I've seen a number of individuals inquiring as to the login url of their WordPress site for administration purposes. Let's give it to them by changing:

Your new WordPress site has been successfully set up at:

http://wordpress.url

You can log in to the administrator account with the following information:

Username: admin
Password: The password you chose during the install.

We hope you enjoy your new site. Thanks!

Completely in favor of this. For wording, I'd rather put the location first in this list, just because I think the order fits the logical/reading flow a bit better (go HERE, then type THIS, then what-did-I-do-with-that-password-oh-noes).

edit:

New site emails in multisite do include a login link, with the wording "Log in here:" rather than "Location:" If we do this, let's make it so both messages get the same wording & layout.

I would put the url before the u/p and on its own line. Otherwise, good by me.

Should the link go to wp-login.php or wp-admin ?

I was thinking something closer to 21089.2.patch -- we already have wp_login_url() -- may as well use it for the install notification.

I wouldn't mind some later enhancement that lets you pass an argument to wp_login_url() to specify the blogID you want the login URL for, for multisite installs.
