Network Site Settings: add a pretty name to avoid confusions

Site Settings in Multisite list all options from the database. To make things prettier, _ are removed and each word is capitalized.


I think we could make things prettier, and most importantly less confusing, by adding pretty names for some of these options. I'm thinking of 2 different options in particular, siteurl and home. It can be easy to confuse the 2 options. On single installations, we solved that problem by giving them the following names:


I think it would make sense to use the same names in the Multisite Settings screen as well:

  • SiteURL would become SiteURL (WordPress Address)
  • home would become home (Site Address)

Thanks for the patch jeherve, but I'm marking this as wontfix because this will be addressed by #26953 (which aims to get rid of this huge list of options).
