    I forgot to mention how I did it:

    First type: /wp-login.php?action=register will display the website register page.

    Now type: /wp-login.php and the wp-login admin page shows.

    Settings Used:

    Hide Backend: Enabled
    Login Slug: Login
    Register Slug: Register
    Admin Slug: oddsecretnameused

    WP Permalinks: /%postname%/
    WP Admin Folder: .htaccess not created

    Hi WPS.

    Have the .htaccess rules been entered into the .htaccess file in the root of your website?

    same issue here.

    WP latest version, all other functions work fine.

    Since I just discovered this Plugin, I cannot say if this issue just appeared since the last update.

    Same question for you then TeeKaaaay85, is there a Better WP Security section in the .htaccess section in the root of your site?

    I have the same problem.Bit51 What do you mean if .htaccess rules are into the .htaccess file of the website?How can this be done?And are there any conflicts from this?

    yes, the plugin wrote all the code into the htaccess. Any ideas? Do more users have the problem or is it unique? Also hide login (which seems to work in the same way) is not working.

    Well, in about 50 sites I maintain and use that feature I haven’t seen an issue so I can’t say it’s unique but it is interesting.

    Can one of you please email me at info [at] bit51 [dot] com so that I may get some more information to help troubleshoot?

    wps

    Hi Bit51,

    Sorry for the late answer. Been down with the flu. Your question – Have the .htaccess rules been entered into the .htaccess file in the root of your website?

    Yes they have.

    We’re using a vps server and everyting is working fine except the hide backend function.

    Our site is a classified ad website using the Appthemes ClassiPress theme. We also use Litespeed web sever plugin for WHM/Cpanel.

    Is there any reported issues using Better WP Security with AppThemes ClassiPress, and or issues with Litespeed server that we missed?

    Thanks again, WPS.

    Should there any other option be selected from WP Security, so that enable Hide Backend works?

    Same question for you then TeeKaaaay85, is there a Better WP Security section in the .htaccess section in the root of your site?
    Do you mean the “Write to WordPress core files” selection from Better Wp Security options?Should this be selected, so that Hide Backend works?

    Hi Cos,

    I’m currently looking to see why it isn’t working for some folks. Yes, “Write to … Core Files” must be selected however in some cases it seems that Apache isn’t processing the rules at all.

    As far as my problem it was solved since I checked the option “Write to WordPress core file”.Thanks for your support.

    Hi Cos22,

    i got the same problem as you with a classified theme. I also want to hide the admin section but can’t. Did you recieve any kind of a solution for this problem?

    kamha,

    Are you letting it write to core files? Can you confirm there is a “Better WP Security” section in your .htaccess?

    do any of the other functions that require .htaccess work? do the permalinks work? maybe mod_rewrite is disabled or the server ignores your .htaccess file. i have one site where that is the case (probably allowoverride none), and unfortunately a number of plugins are not working
