Bloginfo is a WordPress function that you can use on WordPress templates to display a number of things such as the home page, the blog description, the main feed, comments feed, admin email address, template directory, site url, pingback url, etc. You can display bloginfo via PHP just like this:
<?php bloginfo('url'); ?>
Assuming the blog’s home page is located at http://example.com/home, here’s a list of options.
admin_email = firstname.lastname@example.org atom_url = http://www.example.com/home/feed/atom charset = UTF-8 comments_atom_url = http://www.example.com/home/comments/feed/atom comments_rss2_url = http://www.example.com/home/comments/feed description = Just another WordPress blog home = http://www.example.com/home (DEPRECATED! use url option instead) html_type = text/html language = en-US name = Testpilot pingback_url = http://www.example.com/home/wp/xmlrpc.php rdf_url = http://www.example.com/home/feed/rdf rss2_url = http://www.example.com/home/feed rss_url = http://www.example.com/home/feed/rss siteurl = http://www.example.com/home (DEPRECATED! use url option instead) stylesheet_directory = http://www.example.com/home/wp/wp-content/themes/largo stylesheet_url = http://www.example.com/home/wp/wp-content/themes/largo/style.css template_directory = http://www.example.com/home/wp/wp-content/themes/largo template_url = http://www.example.com/home/wp/wp-content/themes/largo text_direction = ltr url = http://www.example.com/home version = 3.5 wpurl = http://www.example.com/home/wp
