Tried the plugin. Didn't like the resulting user names. Deactivated and deleted the plugin The changed user names remain. I will have to restore the database from backup.
Before you install this plugin, make sure you are committed 100% cause there is no way to just deactivate and delete the plugin and think you can go back to how things were before.
The plugin is a great idea, but a total disaster if you make a small mistake when setting up users. Let me explain:
I installed the plugin and unfortunately I clicked the button to fix users automatically. This meant that the names turned into strange randomized name. This is really a bad thing for a blog, I guess it's a bad idea for any site.
I wanted to change all the weird names and enter my own display name for users to protect. The author of the plugin told me that this is not possible, so I'm stuck with strange author names, unless I have my hosting service roll back the whole database to a previous date. Disaster considering work done in the mean time!!
Now all my posts's meta author links points to strange sounding author name pages. And after deactivating the pluging all author pages are now 404. Even reactivating the plugin didn't help.
I advice the plugin creators to remove the randomization function, forcing the user to enter the alternative display names manually instead.
But I would love to have it work also from the Network or Superadmin pages to work!
plugin I must say
I see you.
I've been lurking around the wp support forum for years waiting for a usable solution to this user authentication credential leak.
I hate watching the brutes hammering away at my random string admin username.
Why give malicious hackers half of the key to your WP site's front door? You don't have to. Install this. You will love yourself. Your users will love you. You'll rest easier. And world peace will follow. (Okay, maybe not the last one...)
Les trois créateurs sont de renom, le produit est sans faille !
It works perfectly.
Thanks for that PlugIn - great work.
Super Merci Beaucoup !
