#6880 closed enhancement (invalid)

On install, link to messy Codex page

When installing for the first time, the "There doesn't seem to be a wp-config.php file. I need this before we can get started. Need more help? We got it." message links to http://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress#Step_3:_Set_up_wp-config.php which is rather long, complicated, and not giving any impression of "5 mn install".

Linking to the codex is nice but, for this particular step which is probably the first impression a newcomer will have, why not make a more concise, shorter and kept under control page (wp.org/first-install/ or something) instead ? Just a thought.

Actually, the "We Got it" links to here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

Not to what you linked to.

  • Milestone changed from 2.5.2 to 2.6

So, do we want to clean up the Codex or change the link to http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php?

  • Milestone 2.9 deleted
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

It does point to http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

Which is fairly clear I reckon. So no change is required.
