With WordPress version 3.5 remote publishing via XML-RPC became permanently active. This plugin simulates the functionality in versions 3.4 and before. Once active, XML-RPC functioning is disabled, and it can be enabled or disabled again in the “Settings” >> “Writing” admin page.
Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.
After activation XML-RPC publishung will be disabled automattically until you enable it in “Settings” >> “Writing”
This is a really good plugin, light weight and just does the job.
If you find that even after hiding your login page you are still getting failed login attempts – try installing this
highly underrated plugin!
To the Developer – thanks for this fantastic plugin and your continued development – greatly appreciated
