Some times we need to know the absolute BLOGPATH. This is the one to our blog root and can be different from ABSPATH which points to the WordPress install.

This patch creates the BLOGPATH constant.

  • Milestone changed from 2.7.2 to Future Release

Only bug fixes go into existing branches. This would be a 2.8 thing. ;)

should also be noted that, The index.php file is not always loaded, its just the entry point for mod_rewrite (usually). Many also have thisfile duplicated or modified (Esp in cases where the install path is different from the WP path)

-1 Bogus. If a coder needs that value, he or she can get it as of the script path server variable.

Replying to hakre:

-1 Bogus. If a coder needs that value, he or she can get it as of the script path server variable.

-1 I too do not see a point to this. There are plenty of ways to figure out where you are, already built-in to PHP. This seems like it will only add potential problems/inconsistencies.
