  • Technically, your suggestions are not practical as the user will always have the ability to point his domain name elsewhere or mess something up such that the code cannot be interpreted properly.

    However, regarding alerting the user or removing the setting entirely, there’s been some discussion on it.

    If a reset button is added and a user loses access to the site, surely they’ll lose access to the reset button?

    If someone goes into admin & changed the URL to an invalid value without understanding the consequences, and as a result losing access There is already a way of regaining access: they just need to add:

    define('WP_HOME','http://theoriginaladdress.com');
    define('WP_SITEURL','http://theoriginaladdress.com');

    to their wp-config.php to change these setting back to the valid values.
