iThemes Security (formerly Better WP Security)
Better WP Security and Comment Approval Email Links (5 posts)

    I have changed /wp-admin/ to /nfr-admin/ using Better WP Security.

    Now when a site visitor comments on a blog post, the email received by the Admin contains links to approve/delete/spam the comment, but they still contain /wp-admin/.

    Is there a fix I've missed?

    Thanks,
    Scott

    If you are connected when you click the link, it works, doesn't it ?
    If you are not connected, you get a 404 not found because of the rewrite rule which is not correct. You should be redirected to wp-login but wp-login is also hidden : that is the problem, I guess : unsolvable !!

    You should add the secret key to the link in the mail but this is in the core of wordpress (wp-includes/pluggable.php) not in a plugin or a template. So you may need to develop a plugin to extend this ....

    I have the same issue and I think I know how to fix it except that I can not find what is the correct URL I should use with Better Security.

    The old URL in the email is something like that:
    http://www.mywebsitre.com/wp-admin/post.php?post=1234&action=edit

    (so the editor can simply click on the link and was (before WPBS) sent to the post to approve.)

    Does anyone knows what should be the new URL (with the private key I assume), I have try:
    http://www.mywebsitre.com/wp-admin/post.php?privatekey?post=1234&action=edit [still 404]

    waving. Me too. Surely someone must know where to put the security key etc? I can see all sorts of possibilities in the pluggable.php but no changes in I've tried have worked.
