    I’ll dig into this and see what I can do about that. Thanks for reporting it!

    Also, when you say you’re “still seeing login attempts”… how are you seeing them?

    I have Sucuri security installed as well and it sends me emails whenever logins or attempts happen. There were 50 a day at one point but it’s a trickle now since renaming.

    I’ll look at the customizer thing, but the reason I asked about how you’re seeing the logins is because of this:

    Thanks Paul, I’ve deactivated Sucuri now as Shield does mostly the same without scaremongering and bothering me with emails. The login attempts have dropped off almost completely since yesterday.

    Good call. I hear you on the Scaremongering… I think many folks find it slightly addictive. We had a great plugin review on just that (https://twitter.com/iControlWP/status/899356872226066432 )

    So I have a solution to the customize.php issue. It went much deeper than just customize and it might present a great long-term solution going forward, but it may need a bit of testing as it could interfere with other random things I’m not aware of. Would you be up for that? If so I’ll show you how.

    It’s been released already, so your problem should be fixed
