Is is possible to mask the login url and not change the wp-login.php file name? (7 posts)

    Wondering if anyone knows how to mask the wp-login.php url (and other urls like wp-register.php)?

    I found this plugin for standard WP, but reading the forums about it, it seems like it's breaking .htaccess files.

    I know I can rename the actual files and hack the core to reflect my changes, but is there another way?

    Page templates. :)

    make a page template, stuff the login form details in there.

    I would assume this would also work for wp-signup as well?

    Nice tip, and thanks!

    It should. :)

    On my list of tutorials to write.

    (no, really - there's a whiteboard next to my desk with a list)

    How would you do this in the htaccess file so that regardless of which site your on it goes to a specific page i.e. site2.com/wp-signup always goes to site1.com/signup. I'm using Multi domain plugin of course.

    I wouldn't do that through the htaccess. I'd do it via a short plugin.
