    Hi, thanks to for the plugin. I am trying to hide wp-admin in the url when a user is logged in. I enabled the hide backend tab, changed wp-admin to admin and inserted the .htaccess rules but when I enter mysite.com/admin I end up getting redirected back to mysite.com/wp-admin/?mbojlolrh4 (for example), but the wp-admin still shows, so it doesn't hide the fact that you are using wordpress once you are logged in, correct?


  2. That's how it should work. We can't completely remove wp-admin as it's an actual folder in the WordPress core. The plugin prevents people who aren;t logged in from accessing it directly without the key variable (the gibbarish after the "?" mark) thus keeping a number of automatic bots out of it.
