    Hi,

    Do you have some video like this one: http://support.wpwave.com/videos/change-wp-admin-to-myadmin

    but for this two options:
    1) Change wp-login.php
    2) Change “/wp-admin”
    3) .htaccess wp-login changes needed?

    I could not find anything in the documentation or in video (that would be even so much better)

    Cheers

    Hi,

    1) Change wp-login.php
    >> You have 2 options:
    a) enable “Hide Login Page” option in General settings tab. This will avoid direct access to wp-login.php by adding secret key to it (you can define your own key)

    b) adding replacement name for wp-login.php in “Change Login URL” field in Permalinks & URLs tab, so that you can access login page with URL like http://www.yourdomain.com/login/ instead of http://www.yourdomain.com/wp-login.php

    2) Change “/wp-admin”
    >> For this there’s video tutorial – http://support.wpwave.com/videos/change-wp-admin-to-myadmin

    3) .htaccess wp-login changes needed?
    >> What changes you need to make to htaccess? You need not manually edit .htaccess file to configure HMWP (unless if it’s not-writable)

    Hi and thank you very much for your quick answer!!
    I saw the video you comment me, thanks, but works to change “wp-admin”. What I want to change is in Permalinks / Url: 1)Change Login URL 2)New wp-admin Path.

    In addition, when I look the site with “Builtwith Chrome Extension” indicates me that my site is done in wordpress… I supposed this could be the reason.

    Cheers

    I have already explained above regarding how to change – 1)Login URL 2)New wp-admin Path.
    (It’s simple! You simply have to enter a new name in the corresponding textbox, click on ‘save settings’ button, and follow the on-screen instructions.)
    If it’s something else that you are looking for, please let us know in detail.

    Regarding builtwith.com detection, we are aware of this. Builtwith.com has updated their algorithm. We’ll be updating the plugin in the upcoming versions to take care of this.
