[wp-hackers] Site Address during development

Sorry Rich/Otto missed that - in that case why doesn't WordPress core
just use the wp-config.php or admin area settings when building the URL
within feeds?


If it helps, I often use this in my wp-config.php for quick wins when
changing URL's often:

define('WP_HOME', $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

But obviously this only works if you run you're site at the top (host)
level (and not in a sub-folder).

yes and it has been answered in this very thread.

one example given, IIRC, was RSS feeds.
