Codex: Editing wp-config.php Page Reorganization

mrmist posted the following to the wp-docs mailing list earlier this AM:

The Codex page is really long.

I wonder if it should be broken out into basic wp-config and more advanced stuff. Where “basic” would just include things that your average user might need.

Currently the “Advanced” stuff occupies the mass of this page, and makes it much longer and more daunting looking than it needs to be.

Also, if we restrict the main bulk of the page to the very basics, it could have edit protect enforced on it and prevent people posting their database credentials to it.

Thoughts, etc…


I agree with him – the whole page should be reorganized and updated. Thoughts on splitting it into 2 pages – original with the basic information, and a second page for the advanced information?
