Good Bye wp-admin

Chaging wp-admin to anything you want.

Plugin change the wp-admin url to admin-panel(or anything you want) in wordpress admin area without breaking anything. eg: http://www.example.com/wp-admin/ to http://www.example.com/admin-panel/

Steps you should follow for working this plugin correctly :

Step 1: add this code to your wp-config file(screen shot-1).

define('WP_ADMIN_DIR', 'admin-panel');

Step 2: add this rule at the top of the your htaccess file(screenshot-2).

RewriteRule ^admin-panel/(.*) wp-admin/$1?%{QUERY_STRING} [L]

Step 3: 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. Refer screenshot for clear understanding.

Why this plugin need manual editing :

  • There is no option for inserting values wp-config file using wordpress hooks/filters
  • its difficult to add new rules in htaccess file with wordpress hook.

Because of this two reasons i cannot build a fully automatic plugin.Suggesions for improving this plugin is always welcome.

Warning :

  • Use this plugin at your own risk.
  • Don't Activate the plugin on live website.You will loss wp-admin access.
  • For working this plugin correctly ,you should follow the steps correctly.
