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 ‘http://example.com/secret‘. 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,
