    Hey guys,

    How can this be done. I know major websites using wordpress do it:

    http://icanhascheezburger.com/wp-login

    http://mashable.com/wp-login

    WordPress files are evidently installed in the web-root folder on those sites. If necessary you may need to move WordPress.

    Actually, I made a mistake. Icanhascheezburger does have the wp-login page. If you type it without the .php extension is gives a 404 but with the php extension it brings up the page. This is weird because on my blog the wp-login page shows up even if I leave out the .php. In the mashable (with the .php extension) an authentication screens pops up which leads me to believe that they just put an additional htpasswd authentication. So I guess the wp-login can't be moved, oh well...
