How to add back-end security key to links to wp-login.php (1 post)

    I love ThreeWP Activity Monitor (TWPAM), but it fails to work properly if you're also using Better WP Security's (BWPS) "hide back-end" feature.

    BWPS has an option to hide the back end data tables by appending a "secret key" generated by BWPS. The key is shown to the site administrator on the BWPS settings pages. This secret key needs to be added to any other plugins' calls or links to wp-login.php, otherwise the plugin will not be able to read various data tables correctly, and this appears to be the case with Three WP Activity Moniter.

    Does anyone know how I can manually add the BWPS secret key to ThreeWP Activity Moniter (TWPAM)? I haven't found a clear or direct reference to wp-login.php in TWPAM's php or other code files, so maybe the call to wp-login.php is compiled dynamically...? Any suggestions?

    Fyi, here is the basic info provided by BWPS about this issue:

    Keep this key in a safe place. You can use it to manually fix plugins that link to wp-login.php. Once turning on this feature any plugins linking to wp-login.php will fail without adding ?[the key]& after wp-login.php. 99% of users will not need this key. The only place you would ever use it is to fix a bad login link in the code of a plugin or theme.

    Thanks for any ideas.
