Can't Change Wp-Login to Login URL (11 posts)

    Hi there,

    I have tried using mod-rewrite and various plugins, including Stealth Login for this, but none worked.

    The problem is that the WordPress address is similar to:
    http://www.mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin/ and I want it to be
    http://www.mydomain.com/blog/login/

    How do I do this since it's in its own folder?

    Here's the code I'm trying to tinker with, unless there's a better solution?
    RewriteRule ^login$ http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php [NC,L]

    I'm looking for the same solution.
    Looks like the stealth plugin doesn't work with WP 3.2.1
    Did you find a solution yet?
    btw, I think you need a rule that denies http://www.mydomain.com/blog/wp-admin too...

    Instead of the rewrite rule you tried, use this one:

    RewriteRule ^login$ wp-login.php

    But that rewrite rule does not prevent connections to http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin
    That needs to be blocked as well, can that be done with .htaccess as well?

    2) Change the links from wp-logins.php to /login
    in your functions.php (or someone plugin) add this filter

    --

    Don't know if this helps, it's another step towards what you're doing.
    It didn't work for me, not sure which functions.php, i tryed two.

    Actually this works for me
    http://phidevinc.com/tech-tips/changing-conceailing-and-securing-wp-admin

    Again: This successfully redirects 'secure-login' to 'wp-admin' but is NOT making 'wp-admin' unavailable. The visitor STILL can go to http://www.yourwebsite.com/wp-admin directly. So it's not a real sollution

    Well, still there is a slight problem.
    The solution 'Sounds' mentioned works, but only if the wordpress site resides in the servers root dir. I have another site where wordpress is running in a subdir and there it doesn't work.

    What do I need to change to make it work in a subdirectory? Is it just a matter of defining the basedir or so?

    zakhooi , can you tell me how to do that? bcoz when i try to open the url that "sounds" give it to you, its not available anymore... i use wp 3.2.1 too and want to hide my admin login page manually,without using plugin..

    previously , i hide my login page with this trick :

    - go to wp-login.php , open script
    - replace all the "wp-login.php" with "your-url.php"
    - there 19 text replaced
    - rename too file wp-login.php with your-url.php

    this trick works for me, but there's still 1 problem, i cant LOGOUT!!! >.<

    can anyone help me how to fix this "logout problem" ? thanks b4~
