I'm looking at
and thinking about how to improve the help string:
"The WordPress URL and the Site URL can be the same ( or different; for example, having the WordPress core files ( in a subdirectory instead of the root directory."

  1. Since the URL's should include http/https, I believe the sample should also have that: "
  2. It would be good to elaborate a bit more on the difference between these two URL's. What about "WordPress URL is where the core files of WordPress are installed. Site URL is the URL a visitor enters in their browser in order to reach your site."
  • Perhaps we should also mention here about http/https specifically?
  • What about: Remember that if you want to move your site to a different domain, you'll usually need to first configure this outside of WordPress.
