    An excellent product that does what it says it does.

    It's really uncomfortable to criticize a gift, but I'll try: the only issue I have with this plugin is that renaming wp-content ALWAYS results in a dead site. I tried on different installations, on existing ones and on fresh ones. No luck.

    Nevertheless, all other features are so valuable that I will recommend this plugin to anyone and will keep using it (or competing plugins of the same superb quality, if they ever get created) myself on every WP I'll ever manage.

    I completely agree with you that Better WP Security is a great plugin that is a must have. Interestingly, I had the similar issue with renaming the wp-content. I would highly recommend installing this plugin on fresh installations and among the first tasks to change the wp-content name. Then log out, and log back in. For me, the local installations I did, didn't work the first time, then I deleted everything and started from scratch. It worked the second time. One additional thing to be careful about when changing wp-content directory name is that other plugins often look for that wp-content name and some of their php files might need to be modified to specify the new directory name (one used instead of wp-content). I guess this is the price to be paid for security. I really love this plugin.
