• The SiteGround security plugin does a very good job of hitting all the high points when it comes to WordPress website hardening. The one challenge is if the site uses a membership plugin (MemberPress, Socrates, etc.) AND you have selected the custom Admin login page option, there is a conflict created by the way the SiteGround development team implemented the custom URL option.

    When asked, the SiteGround dev team said the function works as designed and using the standard admin URL (that every hacker bot in the world uses) should not be a problem. I disagree.

    While this is not the end of the world, it has cost them a star on my review. There’s no good reason that a site should have to use the standard wp-admin URL for admin logins if the site needs a membership plugin as well.
