Separate login URL for users (1 post)

    I'm setting up a WordPress site for multiple contributors.

    For additional security, I've already successfully (it seems) installed WordPress into its own subdirectory, http://www.mydomain.com/subdirectory while the home page is as I want it to be http://www.mydomain.com

    The problem is my login page as administrator is still http://www.mydomain.com/subdirectory/wp-login.php, which is fine for me to know but which reveals the subdirectory name to any other users who would log in there, thus defeating the security idea of keeping the directory WordPress is installed in secret.

    Is there a way to either create a separate new login page just for users, such as http://www.mydomain.com/wp-login.php?

    If not, and if it would be easier, is there a way to create a single
    http://www.mydomain.com/wp-login.php page for everyone which accomplishes the security objective of keeping the WordPress install directory secret?
