Hard coded wp-login.php url in string

Description (last modified by sabernhardt)

I noticed that in
wp-includes/ms-functions.php (wpmu_welcome_notification)
the login url is hardcoded (wp-login.php) into the string.
This will create a problem if a multisite developer has chosen to change the login page url (for security reasons).

Thanks in advance

Hi lenasterg, thanks for opening a ticket!

It would be nice to change the reliance on wp-login.php as part of the URL. Right now the answer is to use a filter for the entire email through update_welcome_email.

Considering the version of the welcome email stored in the database has existed with BLOG_URLwp-login.php as part of it since pre-3.0, we would need to be careful making any changes. Even if with schema update, two versions of the email would need to be supported in order to maintain backward compatibility. It would be interesting to see a possible solution to this.
