It was hard to find a solution, but I found and resolved my problem...

Do not install! Once installed and activated, you can no longer access your administration area. It was hard to find a solution to turn it off, but I found and resolved my problem.

I'll help you solve yours. If you are having the same problem, do this:

Access the file manager of your hosting Cpanel or through an FTP program like Filezilla. I will assume that you have this basic knowledge.

Navigate to the / wp-content / folder, rename the "plugins" folder to any name. After you do this, all your plugins are disabled. From there, you can access your site, for example: http://www.yoursite.com/wp-admin.

Enter your site and notice that all plugins are disabled ... Do log out.

Now go back to the folder that you renamed and put its original name "plugins" again. After that you will have all the functionality of installed plugins again, but now are not active. So now you can delete the program that was giving problems and enable others.

I hope this helps. Hug!

Fantastic and easy
By , for WP 3.9.2

I was searching a plugin that ONLY prevent me from "hackers" that was entering to my default sire url: mysite.com/wp-admin.
Thanks to this plugin, i could change the /wp-admin and put... mysite.com/wiiiiiiiiii.

I have been trying some others pluguns, plugins that have better rating than this, but none of them helped me. Some of them have not worked, and some others had too many options so I had to remove them.

Thanks for this good job!

I have wordpress 3.9.2 and works perfect, but I've read that it doesn't accept wordpress 4.0 or more, so I think that it wil be interesting to implement it to work in a 4.0 wordpress.

If you don't have access to FTP, don't even think of installing it

Download, install, activate and you're locked out of your website. Simple as that. If it happens to you, hope you have access to FTP. Go in your website, wp-content/plugins and shoot the plugin's folder out.

Bad design and above all, it does NOT work at all. Period. It does NOT hide the wp-admin as even with a 404, people get through the back-end, seeing posts etc, which means info can still be obtained.

So, thanks, but no thanks.

Perfect plugin

Thank You

At first it was great, then months later disappointed
By ,

At first this plugin worked great, I was happy with it, no on found the login page.
Thank God I did and still TG, don't get locked out.
Now, I do not know how some want to be hackers find the login page, but some do.
Maybe an update made it worse. Fix please.

Doesn't work when WP is in a subdirectory
By , for WP 4.2.2

As already mentioned by another user, when the WordPress installation is in a subdirectory (mysite.com/subdir) and configured to be accessed through the root URL (mysite.com) by setting:

  • WordPress Address (URL) = mysite.com/subdir
  • Site Address (URL) = mysite.com

the plugin fails to work :(

---
Trying to login via: mysite.com/mykeyword
shows the login screen fine, but after clicking the Log In button, one gets the Not found error message:
"You tried going to mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword, and it doesn't exist."

So the only way to login is by disableing the plugin via FTP and then going to:
mysite.com/subdir/wp-login.php

---
Trying to logout via the WP logout link, which shows:
mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc
also returns a Not found error message:
"You tried going to mysite.com/subdir/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc, and it doesn't exist."

So, to logout one has to actually use the following URL:
mysite.com/mykeyword?action=logout&_wpnonce=etc

---
If WP is installed in the root directory or in a subdomain, the plugin works great!
