    I killed that filter because of the number of support requests it created… now I got one with it gone.

    It’s not going to work for all situations and this is one of them.

    This is for people wanting to kill brute force attempts by hiding the login form, so anyone at all who wants people on their form should not use this plugin.

    @ rodbauer,

    Your best bet would be to use a plugin like this:

    http://wordpress.org/plugins/theme-my-login/

    It allows you to create your own login url. It can still be found by bots, but at least it will provide some help for scripts targeting the default login URL. Probably not the same as what you’re wanting, but it could help.

    Uh, no.

    Rob, there are .htaccess mod-rewrites you can do that I didn’t want to get into with this because of the troubles it can cause with the nearly infinite number of configurations that might already be in place. Your best bet is to handle this at the .htaccess level.

    If you want to put the filter back in place, here is the code I removed. https://gist.github.com/pmgllc/5705808

    I’m about to release 4.0 in the next 5-10 days, which will allow extensibility for add-ons and people can add their own rewrites or I’ll make one available.
