Thoughts on “How to Change your WordPress admin URL with Lockdown WP Admin

  • Hello. I have a problem with ‘Lockdown WP Admin WordPress’ plugin, I accidentally activate  Private Usernames/Passwords and will not let me access my web. Can you help me? Thank you.

  • Hi, I have used lockdown WP admin. Our computer accidentally stopped and when I typed the URL login that I created it redirects to the wordpress login but even when I typed my password and username, it redirects me to the website but not with the dashboard.

    • Hello John,

      Thank you for contacting us. We are happy to help, but will need some additional information. Are you getting any errors? Putting WordPress in Debug mode may provide a more detailed error message.

      Can you provide a link to the site for testing?

      Thank you,

  • How about creating a link to the new path using the Text Widget? I am also worried about those who want to register or join the site for the first time.

    • Placing an HTML link within a text widget would indeed be a good solution to direct those users to the correct page.

    • Hello Kumi,

      Your admin login area is now the new ‘slug’ you created in the plugin, such as ‘‘. Any members that need to log in will also need to use that URL.

      If the membership plugin you use does use the meta widget, then simply re-enable it and use the other method described above that removes the login link from the page but still allowing all other links.

      Kindest Regards,
      Scott M
