Password Reset stopped working
By ,

I'd been using the plugin successfully for quite a while. But somewhere along the line the password reset link stopped working. The link emailed out after using the "Lost password" form does not include the hidden word required to get to the login page when the plugin is active.

Redirects To Homepage - Can't Log In
By , for WP 4.3.1

This plugin hasn't been updated for 2 years and will not work on WP's newest installs.

It's still being promoted on Facebook etc. but simply doesn't work.

To get back into site if you installed it and are locked out, rename your plugins folder, enter in 'old' way. Delete plugin. Rename plugin folder to original name. Activate all plugins again.

Could not log in to my site
By , for WP 4.3.1

I installed this plugin, added a custom_wpadmin_slug and could no longer get into my dashboard. I finally gave up and had to go into my Cpanel and access my phpmyadmin settings and get to my wp_options to correct the problem. If you have fell victim to this, goto this link and read what one person posted regarding the wp_options

Not work in version 4.2.2

Works just fine on 4.2.2

Installation was easy, just set it up from the Settings -> Permalinks menu. "/wp-admin/" automatically redirects to the homepage. "/wp-admin.php/" 404's. Checked all other possible default WordPress login links and nothing takes you to the login screen, only the custom URL that I setup. Works perfectly, thanks!

Working fine

This plugin works on 4.2.2. Not only does it allow you to login from the new URL, but both /wp-admin and /wp-login.php redirect to the home page so bots can't even get to the login form :)

Did not work for me

It is still opening for wp-login.php
Totally waste of the time.
