Protect your dashboard without editing the .htaccess file -- the FIRST one that completely blocks remote bot login requests.
Needed a plugin yesterday to redirect a big roach that was trying to brute force its way into my site.
It worked perfectly! Many thanks!
Good idea but causes some plugins to break.
Excellent job! We've talked a decent amount internally about obscuring our login screen, but had never come up with such a simple and effective method. We're excited to see how this decreases the thousand or so login hack attempts we get a month.
Didn't work for me and I had cpanel and delete the plugin to regain access to site.
I was looking for an easy login plugin that simply changed the wp-login.php file. Having this will limit most attacks on the the server for my sites anyway. Not a total solution but one where it would stop auto-bots.
This plugin is phenominal. Works brilliantly and since installing I haven't had a single hiccup on my site, no hack attempts, not even spam comments!! =D I'm surprised it's free! Love It!!
Was looking for a way to hide the login page as I'm getting a lot of 'admin' logins. Just installed so can't say how it will do long-term in blocking the bots and other ***holes, but the plugin does work as stated with testing the site through other browsers - hopefully I get a lot less logins.
Very simple to use, simply fill in a few fields and you don't have to touch the plugin again - you only need to remember the new custom login url. Only con, though not really one, is that the documentation is in a separate tab and not together with the settings, but that's really a non-issue.
I installed the plugin, added redirect website got the login url but when i try to log in with the new login url i'm taken to my redirect website. I can't access my backend. help please. Thanks....site is behindthegospel.com
I just installed your plugin and asked my husband instantly, (he is out of town), to test it and try to login in to my wp-admin. He cracked up as I redirected him to http://www.sanger.dk/ :)
I also installed the Limit Login Attempts as you suggested, and they are working perfectly together.
Thank you so much for all the work you put in.
This plugin is just what I needed. Did a simple redirect and hide my secret login page. It does not cause any slow of the site. Well, at least that is what I'm noticing the first time I install the plugin. Will do observe how it goes, but this seems to be a great install.
I am happy, working very well!
