[Plugin: Better WP Security] Hide backend feature causing /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php 404 error ? (2 posts)

    I'm having a problem with the both the hide backend features and intrusion detection. I'm getting 404 errors in my console from jquery.min.js -

    POST http://myurl.com/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php 404 Not Found

    This occurs on every page, so intrusion detection considers this a 404, so my users get locked out after viewing x amount of pages.

    I believe this must be due to the hide backend features, since wp-admin is obscured to my custom url.

    How can I trace back the reference to wp-admin/admin-ajax.php and update it to the new url? Or is there some fix for this via Better WP Security?

    The latest version of this plugin causing any other plugin or theme that want to make a request from admin-ajax.php failed.

    It happen when I enable the hide backend where we change the login to different name.

    I temporary need to disable this function to make sure the admin-ajax not blocked. I hope the developer will solve this issue.
