[Plugin: Lockdown WP Admin] Works, but cannot logout

    The plugin is designed to change every URL that links to wp-login.php and changes it to the login base you specified.

    So if your base is “login-base”, your logout URL would be “login-base?action=logout”. It should still work because WordPress uses wp-login.php to log the user in and log the user out.


    That’s weird, because the logout URL is using my base but it still doesn’t work. My login base is “access”, so the URL is: http://mysite.com/access?action=logout&_wpnonce=fed30f7935

    But still, I cannot logout. Instead, what appears is an error screen saying “object not found”

    Good news! I have found a way how to fix this issue. Found from here:

    Basically we should also changes the links from wp-logins.php to /your-own-login-link.

    After installing the plugin, edit your theme functions.php, then add this filter:

    add_filter('site_url',  'wplogin_filter', 10, 3);
    function wplogin_filter( $url, $path, $orig_scheme )
     $old  = array( "/(wp-login\.php)/");
     $new  = array( "your-own-login-link");
     return preg_replace( $old, $new, $url, 1);

    Pay attention:Make sure to match your-own-login-link to the one you made in WP Lockdown. Now it works perfectly!

    In case you haven’t noticed this, I guess you should add this to your code, Sean! 😉
