Did not work for me

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

Worked then didn't
By , for WP 4.1

My site login page was getting attacked this morning and my hosting service recommended this plugin as a safety measure. Installed on a site running 4.1 and it bounced the wp-admin and wp-login urls to the homepage as desired. The new login url worked for my user name for about an hour, but a different administrator couldn't login at all, trying on all different browsers. When I gave up trying help my coworker I went back to my station and discovered that I could no longer log in as well.

On looking at the file logs in cpanel I did notice that a W3 Total Cache "minify" page was getting called. I had cleared the cache after installing this plugin, so I'm not sure if those weren't working well together. But it was just the css file, doesn't seem like it should be a problem, but that file had never been called when trying to login before.

Anyway, I don't know what the problem is, but there's no point using this to add security if I can't even log in. Deleted it through cpanel file manage since I couldn't access the WP admin at all.

Doesn't work with 4.0, PHP errors all over the place
By , for WP 4.0

Warning: do not install this plugin if you're running 4.0+! I couldn't log into my site at all, and kept getting PHP errors.

Finally, the only way to restore my site was to go into my FTP and manually delete the plugin from underneath my WordPress plugins folder. Before that, I was in a panic thinking that it had totally screwed up my website and that I would have to restore from a backup.

Also, even for the people who use it, sounds like there are a lot of bugs that the developer needs to work out. While it's a good idea, I wouldn't recommend it until they start providing better support and a non-buggy plugin.

I installed this plugin. He makes me though my random Admin URI, but I can still access wp-admin and wp-login.php on it when I type this on the address bar in the browser.

Please fix it, then there is of me 5 stars.

Don't work

Didn't work for me
By , for WP 3.9.2

Pretty much what the review says... it didn't work. I installed and activated, changed the wp-admin url as directed, but going to the new url just gave a "page not found" message. Admittedly, I didn't try very hard to get it working; I just deleted the plugin after finding that it didn't work.
