First, I just want to note, I now have a dedicated Secure Hidden Login page on my site.
Secure Hidden Login is now part of EditSee (since v0.8)
Although I cannot give full details on the ultimate goal of the EditSee project at this time, it should be fairly obvious. The aim of the EditSee project is to eliminate the need for a conventional ‘admin’ or ‘dashboard’ area. The user should be able to edit their site, from their site, not some other hidden area. Secure Hidden Login is a big part of this in that it simplifies the login and logout process.
Secure Hidden Login passes a strict Debug check (since v0.9)
After attending Wordcamp Phoenix 2013, I learned the importance of debugging your code. This is both for the purposes of security, and compatibility with other plugins and themes. With full WordPress Debug mode on and the Debug bar plugin, Secure Hidden Login generates no errors. In addition to Debug check, v0.9.1 renames some CSS classes to further prevent conflicts with other plugins.
Secure Hidden Login’s new features since v0.1
Secure Hidden Login had some humble beginnings as a very simple plugin. Thanks to a lot of great feedback, several features have been added over time and many more are coming. Here is a list of some of the great features Secure Hidden Login now has:
- Color options for the buttons
- Disabling of the wp-login.php page (using the .htaccess file)
- Forgot password functionality built in
- User registration link (when registration is enabled)
- Automatic bypassing of the login page on logout
- Sidebar Widget for easy access to the Login bar
- 4 different visual ways to activate and a key combination
What’s next for Secure Hidden Login
- Captcha integration
- Better disabling of wp-login.php to prevent any kind of invalid access attempt to this page
- …and much more!
