All In One WP Security & Firewall
[resolved] Query - Rename Login page (3 posts)

    Hi,

    I updated AIO WP Security today and noticed a new and handy feature in the Brute Force section, Rename Login. I tried it out but am unsure as to whether the slug replacement pertains to the /wp-admin/ part of the address - so you simply add it on (e.g. http://www.example.com/myslug/) or the wp-login.php file itself (http://www.example.com/myslug.php). Which is the correct renaming method?

    I tried the former and wasn't able to log in: first it claimed my login captcha answer was wrong when it wasn't (and locked me out) and then when I disabled the captcha, redid the slug renaming and logged out to test, it automatically blocked my IP address.

    The new login URL would have been displayed in the information message after you saved the feature.
    It should generally look like:
    http://yoursite.com/yourslug

    Regarding the login issue you mention - I'm a little surprised you are seeing this. I've just tried this test on 2 separate sites with captcha enabled and I cannot see any issue.

    Can you try again from another browser?

    Hi wpsolutions,

    Many thanks for your reply. As per your advice, I redid the configurations, logged in on a new browser and voilĂ , it's working.

    I suspect my initial problem was to do with a browser-installed password manager plugin interfering with the input fields, though technically it shouldn't have done given it had no record particularly of the captcha inputs.

    Nevertheless, thanks for your assistance in this matter.
