Signup form – Blog URL suffix text incorrect for subdomain installation

    I believe that the signup form provided by register.php is not displaying the correct suffix text for a subdomain installation.

    Under Blog Details when the user checks the box “Yes, I’d like to create a new blog” there is an input box under “Blog URL (required)”. For a subdomain install, the suffix text is incorrect.

    What I expect to see here is http://( ).mydomain.tld

    What I see instead is http://( ).www.mydomain.tld

    I think the culprit is the call to site_url() in register.php:
    .“

    In wp-config.php I have
    define ( ‘BP_ROOT_BLOG’, 3 )
    define(‘DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE’,’www.mydomain.tld’);

    When register.php uses site_url(), perhaps it is picking up the current domain which is http://www.mydomain.tld?

    I would think that register.php in this instance would always want to pick up the top level domain for this use case and maybe not use site_url()?

    I first suspected the theme I was using until the theme owner pointed out that this was a BuddyPress Core file:

    BTW – is there another place to officially log suspected bugs in BuddyPress, or is this the correct place to report them?

    Thanks,

    Scott
