    It seams there is an issue between this two.

    When rename wp-login is activated and I try to log in on a mapped domain I get this error:

    "You must log in to access the admin area."

    If plugin is deactivated it works.

    Same here. Would be very happy if this could be solved.

    Still a great plugin though!

    Yeah mapped domains seem to be a problem. At the moment I have no idea how to solve this, partly because I can't test it. @yakti-ruud I assume you're mapping domains as well?

    Yes, I am. However, thinking about it I'm not sure whether I experience the same issue as the OP.

    When I try to access a mapped domain directly, using the custom login url, it works fine. However, when trying to access a subsite on a mapped domain from within the WordPress multisite dashboard, it sends me to the mapped domain wp-admin url and thus giving the login error.

    I started thinking whether the issue is with your plugin, our with the domain mapping plugin. I use WordPress MU Domain Mapping. I just checked that plugins support forum and just found the solution to my problem. (And now I feel a little stupid, because it is that simple.) The simple solution is to turn on the remote login option at the domain mapping settings page (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/double-login-needed-for-mapped-and-subdomain?replies=4).

    So for me it is solved. Hopefully mkdev can confirm whether her problem was the same or not.

    I'm not having this issue anymore since the last updates of the mapping plugin I'm using (wpmudev's). So I think this topic can be closed.

    I think the problems @meshmarketer was having are related to this. I'd be great if he could tell us which plugin he is using.
