Move Login

Change your login URL for something like http://example.com/login and stop login brute-force attempts.


  • 2015/11/22
  • Login over https on a non https site should finally work (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵)و


  • 2015/10/04
  • The URL used in the password protected posts form (slug postpass) is back in the rewrite rules: this URL can be discovered by inspecting the form code, so it must not use the login URL.
  • Bugfix: the URL used in the password protected posts form and those used to retrieve a password are working fine again.


  • 2015/09/18
  • Removed postpass, retrievepassword and rp from the rewrite rules: they are useless and they can be used to find the login page.
  • Fixed a bug in multisite where rewrite rules were inserted after the WordPress rules.
  • The plugin will not display a message ON EVERY BLOODY UPDATE anymore, only if the .htaccess/web.config file needs to be updated and it is not writeable. Well, too bad... it is the case this time. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻
  • The code box after the settings form is now hidden by default and can be shown by clicking a button.
  • Some code cleanup.


  • 2015/08/26
  • Back-compat is getting annoying. Last try before dropping support of old versions of WP.


  • 2015/08/26
  • Bugfix for WP < 3.6: Call to undefined function wp_is_writable().


  • 2015/08/05
  • New: ready for the new WordPress 4.3 headings in admin screens (but you won't see any difference).


  • 2015/07/23
  • Bugfix: Added missing base URL in rewrite rules for Nginx when the site is not installed at the domain root.
  • Bugfix: php warning in settings page.


  • 2015/06/08
  • Bugfix: Added missing semicolon in rewrite rules for Nginx.


  • 2015/03/01
  • New: Installations where WordPress has its own directory are now supported. (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜
  • New: For multisite, the log in address in the "new site" welcome email is now filtered. Unfortunately there are some other places where the log in address can't be changed, regarding the user/site registration messages. A bug ticket is open.
  • Improvement: All rewrite rules have been improved. Feedback from Nginx users are welcome (as you may know, I'm a Nginx n00b).
  • Improvement: Better handling of network_site_url().
  • Bugfix: slugs were not stored in SFML_Options::get_slugs() before being returned. Trivial perf improvement.
  • The filter 'sfml_options' can't be used to add options, only to modify existing values.
  • Removed some unused global vars.


  • 2015/02/24
  • Same as below... Fingers crossed. >_>


  • 2015/02/24
  • Fixes a fatal error for multisites.


  • 2015/02/22
  • Most of the plugin has been rewritten.
  • New: you don't need my framework Noop to have a settings page anymore (yes, you can uninstall it if it's not used elsewhere). ᕙ(⇀‸↼‶)ᕗ The bad news is there are no settings import/export/history anymore (and it won't come back). Make sure your settings are ok after upgrading.
  • New: the plugin disable some WordPress native redirections to administration area and login page. For example, http://example.com/dashboard/ was leading to http://example.com/wp-admin/. This should solve a bunch of bugs.
  • New: the rewrite rules for Nginx servers are now provided in the plugin settings page as information. Thank you Milouze.
  • Improvement: bugfix for IIS servers.
  • Improvement: better French translations.
  • Bugfix: fix double slash in network site url (used for lostpassword).


  • 2014/04/28
  • Plugins can now add their own action to Move Login more easily with the filter sfml_additional_slugs. Even without doing anything, Move Login handle custom actions added by other plugins, but the url can't be customizable. Now, these plugins can add a new input field to let users change this new url, and it's very simple.
  • Side note: I've just released a new version for my framework Noop (1.0.6). Now you can import and export your settings via a file, see the new tab in the "Help" area.


  • 2014/04/01
  • Bugfix for php 5.4.


  • 2014/03/29
  • Bugfix: don't block users accessing the script admin-post.php.
  • Changed i18n domain.
  • If Noop is not installed, add a link in the "settings" page.
  • Added a direct link to download Noop, some users may not be able to install plugins directly.
  • Code improvements and small bugfixes.


  • 2013/12/17
  • Bugfix.


  • 2013/12/16
  • Code refactoring.
  • Requires WordPress 3.1 at least.
  • New: the URLs can be customized, with a filter or a settings page. The settings page needs another plugin to be installed, it's a framework I made (Noop). See the Move Login row in your plugins list, there's a new link.
  • New: support for custom actions in the login form (added by other plugins).
  • New: choose what to do when someone attempts to access the old login page.
  • New: choose what to do when someone attempts to access the administration area.
  • New: enabling permalinks is not required anymore.
  • Todo: provide rewrite rules for Nginx systems.


  • 2013/09/30
  • Very minor bug fix: messed the author link -_-'


  • 2013/09/20
  • First stable version.
  • New: 1 new action called sfml_wp_login_error is now available for the wp-login.php error message, you can use your own wp_die() or redirect to another error page for example.


  • 2013/09/12
  • Bugfix: activation for multisite with not writable .htaccess file, a wrong message was shown, preventing activation (was I drunk?).
  • tested on multisite with subdomain.
  • SecuPress is joining the project :)


  • 2013/09/11
  • New: Multisite support (must be "network" activated).
  • Enhancement: updated the set_url_scheme() function to the one in WP 3.6.1 (used for WP < 3.4).
  • Enhancement: better rewrite rules.
  • Bugfix: The plugin rewrite rules are now really removed from the .htaccess file on deactivation.


  • 2013/06/04
  • Bugfix: php notice due to a missing parameter.
