More Information More Information

Displays information about your site, mostly gathered from the information you supply in your User Profile and General Settings WordPress Administration Screens. It can be used anywhere within a template file. This always prints a result to the browser. If you need the values for use in PHP, use get_bloginfo().

Possible values for $show Possible values for $show

  • name‘ – Displays the “Site Title” set in Settings > General. This data is retrieved from the “blogname” record in the wp_options table.
  • description‘ – Displays the “Tagline” set in Settings > General. This data is retrieved from the “blogdescription” record in the wp_options table.
  • wpurl‘ – Displays the “WordPress address (URL)” set in Settings > General. This data is retrieved from the “siteurl” record in the wp_options table. Consider echoing site_url() instead, especially for multi-site configurations using paths instead of subdomains (it will return the root site not the current sub-site).
  • url‘ – Displays the “Site address (URL)” set in Settings > General. This data is retrieved from the “home” record in the wp_options table. Consider echoing home_url() instead.
  • admin_email‘ – Displays the “E-mail address” set in Settings > General. This data is retrieved from the “admin_email” record in the wp_options table.
  • charset‘ – Displays the “Encoding for pages and feeds” set in Settings > Reading. This data is retrieved from the “blog_charset” record in the wp_options table. Note: this parameter always echoes “UTF-8”, which is the default encoding of WordPress.
  • version‘ – Displays the WordPress Version you use. This data is retrieved from the $wp_version variable set in wp-includes/version.php.
  • html_type‘ – Displays the Content-Type of WordPress HTML pages (default: “text/html”). This data is retrieved from the “html_type” record in the wp_options table. Themes and plugins can override the default value using the pre_option_html_type filter.
  • text_direction‘ – Displays the Text Direction of WordPress HTML pages. Consider using is_rtl() instead.
  • language‘ – Displays the language of WordPress.
  • stylesheet_url‘ – Displays the primary CSS (usually style.css) file URL of the active theme. Consider echoing get_stylesheet_uri() instead.
  • stylesheet_directory‘ – Displays the stylesheet directory URL of the active theme. (Was a local path in earlier WordPress versions.) Consider echoing get_stylesheet_directory_uri() instead.
  • template_url‘ / ‘template_directory‘ – URL of the active theme’s directory. Within child themes, both get_bloginfo(‘template_url’) and get_template() will return the parent theme directory. Consider echoing get_template_directory_uri() instead (for the parent template directory) or get_stylesheet_directory_uri() (for the child template directory).
  • pingback_url‘ – Displays the Pingback XML-RPC file URL (xmlrpc.php).
  • atom_url‘ – Displays the Atom feed URL (/feed/atom).
  • rdf_url‘ – Displays the RDF/RSS 1.0 feed URL (/feed/rfd).
  • rss_url‘ – Displays the RSS 0.92 feed URL (/feed/rss).
  • rss2_url‘ – Displays the RSS 2.0 feed URL (/feed).
  • comments_atom_url‘ – Displays the comments Atom feed URL (/comments/feed).
  • comments_rss2_url‘ – Displays the comments RSS 2.0 feed URL (/comments/feed).
  • siteurl‘ – Deprecated since version 2.2. Echo home_url(), or use bloginfo(‘url’).
  • home‘ – Deprecated since version 2.2. Echo home_url(), or use bloginfo(‘url’).
