Rename wp-admin without any Hack

  1. mikaweb

    I think that this is a must have feature:

    Admin folder should be renamable without hacking.

    This is now possible for wp-content why not for admin folder?

    /** Wp-content Directory */
    define('WP_CONTENT_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content');

    /** Wp-content URL */
    define('WP_CONTENT_URL', 'http://localhost/wordpress/wp-content');

    /** Wp-admin Directory */
    define('WP_ADMIN_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-admin');

    This might be useful, making the folder name something you can name optionally within the admin, just as you can change the uploads folder, etc.

    It would be a good decision, a lot of frameworks include the option of setting a custom scaffolding resource name.

    Why would this be useful?

    @perthmetro Security. The less it looks/is built like default WP, the harder it is to attack known vulnerabilities. Being able to rename those directories can help stop an exploit dead in its tracks.

    Another good post on this

    This could be done with a plugin, via the "admin_url" filter.
