Change wp-login.php to anything you want.
I don't offer support through the support forum. Use GitHub instead.
Rename wp-login.php is a very light plugin that lets you easily and safely change wp-login.php to anything you want. It doesn’t literally rename or change files in core, nor does it add rewrite rules. It simply intercepts page requests and works on any WordPress website. The wp-admin directory and wp-login.php page become inaccessible, so you should bookmark or remember the url. Deactivating this plugin brings your site back exactly to the state it was before.
All login related things such as the registration form, lost password form, login widget and expired sessions just keep working.
It’s also compatible with any plugin that hooks in the login form, including
Obviously it doesn’t work with plugins that hardcoded wp-login.php.
Works with multisite, but not tested with subdomains. Activating it for a network allows you to set a networkwide default. Individual sites can still rename their login page to something else.
If you’re using a page caching plugin you should add the slug of the new login url to the list of pages not to cache.
If you wish, you can block wp-login.php with
.htaccess from now on.
Requires: 4.4 or higher
Compatible up to: 4.4.6
