    Hello,

    I'll be running a site with thousands of people going to it, if one knows the wp-admin folder area, I don't want them to be able to hack the wp-admin area, is there a plugin that makes it more secure? perhaps a LOGIN then the WP-Login?

    Suggestions? Thanks!~

    @stiplayer - If this is a strong concern of yours, I would recommend a few possibilities:

    - Work with your webhost to place a .htaccess password restriction on your wp-admin folder

    - Consider using a plugin such as: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/limit-login-attempts/ - it allows only so many login attempts for locking the user out for a time period

    - If you're REALLY worried about it, and you have a predictable IP address (static or rarely changes) you could also work with your webhost to only allow access to your wp-admin folder based on your IP or IP range.

    Hello,

    Thanks for the replies.

    SO if I wanted to do only the IP address which would be our dedicated server IP from work's server, what program (plugin) do I use?
