[Plugin: Hide Login] wp-admin still redirects - Sense? (3 posts)

    Hello,
    I just use hide login plugin for a while now and always thought, this is a good solution.
    Right now, I installed it on a new site and stumbled upon the possibility, that I can still get to the login page (but redirected) when entering http://www.mydomain.com/wp-admin
    Result in URL:
    /wp-login.php?redirect_to=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.domain.com%2Fwp-admin%2F&reauth=1

    Is this supposed to do so?

    My settings are:
    Enable Plugin X On Off
    Login Slug anykeyword
    Login Redirect as is
    Logout Slug anykeyword
    Admin Slug anykeyword
    no custom rules
    Hide mode enabled

    Thsi doesnt make sense to me generally, to hide wp-login.php but wp-admin still redirects to the exact same file, even not against bots.

    Cheers.

    So, can You explain, why I sholuld hide wp-login.php, if anybody can easily start hacking wp-admin?
    I dont see any sense in this.
    Why not also disclose wp-admin?
    Cheers.
    Andre
