    i am thinking of renaming the wp-admin folder so its not so obvious where admin’s sign in, what i want to know is when WordPress release an update will this overwrite whatever ive called the folder?

    ie:

    change wp-admin folder to signin folder

    will signin folder then get re-written back to wp-admin

    No point renaming it, whatever name you give it, i’d bet i can find out what you’ve named it within 2 minutes…

    Which raises the point, why bother?

    right – and you will have tons of coding to do for wordpress to “find” the new folder
    protect your wp-admin with an .htaccess or use this plugin

    why bother indeed, i did wonder that as well..also ive also considered the htaccess solution but heard it can mess things up in some cases, dont know how though..

    will try the plugin

    well if anything were to happen – deleting the .htaccess in /wp-admin would take care of that
