Lockdown WP Admin conceals the administration and login screen from intruders. It can hide WordPress Admin (/wp-admin/) and and login (/wp-login.php)

Hey. And now try to enter the path: www.site.com///wp-login.php and (!!!)login page is opened. This is a bug!

It was a surprise for basic authentication, but then she let me protect themselves from the above bug!

Get rid of the basic authentication is easy - it is necessary to create a empty file in the plugin directory disable_auth.txt. Then, to create a private admin user with base auth in panel and delete the file.

Waiting for a modified plugin, remove error ///wp-login.php and I put 5 stars :-)

At first it was great, then months later disappointed

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:

Trying to logout via the WP logout link, which shows:
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:

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

Very Usefull
By , for WP 4.0

Works as intended, hiding sensible areas of the site (login and admin) from intruders.

There are some issues, like when logout inside the backend you are redirected to the frontend and then have logout again.

But overall works fine!

Very Important Security Tool

I am a big fan of this plugin. It deals with botnet attacks simply and effectively.

It would be 5 star with subdirectory support.
