  • This plugin has a lot of good features, but…

    The main reason for me installing this plugin was to hide my backend (or default WordPress stuff like wp-login, wp-admin, etc), but all this did was redirect back to the default login page. Pretty useless on that front and not really securing anything. Great idea in theory, but not in practice. Hope this gets fixed as there is alot of other useful stuff in this plugin worth keeping it for.

  • Actually I have tested this issue further and found that wp-login and wp-admin only works when you are logged or have seen/visited the login page. If you go to ‘wp-login.php?itsec-hb-token=XXXX’, thereafter it goes to any variation. There appears to be some sort of strange caching or something going on as once you have successfully access the login page it seems to work every time after that (with wp-login.php or wp-admin). :-S
