in the description of the function

“Deprecated arguments include:

‘siteurl’ – Use ‘url’ instead”

is a bit misleading. “‘siteurl’ – Use ‘wpurl’ instead” is correct.

Small fix for get_bloginfo() function doc. 'siteurl' - Use 'url' instead was a bit misleading.

Thanks @sulemanhelp for the ticket and PR. home and siteurl both use url so we don't need to update it.

Hi there, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the PR.

This might be a bit confusing, but as noted above, both home and siteurl fall through to the url value for backward compatibility, so the current documentation is correct.

Some history here:

  • [1157] added the siteurl value.
  • [1731] added the home and wpurl values.
  • [4983] / #3623 deprecated the home and siteurl values.
  • [12587] / #11652 added the _deprecated_argument() call.
  • [36382] / #35581 added the documentation for deprecated values.
  • [44565] / #45934 documented the intentional fall-through to the url value.
