Is this plugin enough to protect my website from all hackers?

The Free version of Hide My WP Ghost will not protect you from all hacker attacks. For extra security you need the premium version.

Hide My WP Ghost hides all the common paths and patterns used but bots to detect that you are using WordPress.

How Can I Change The WP Paths In Admin Dashboard?

By default, Hide My WP Ghost changes the paths only in frontend.

We don’t recommend this but if you want to change the path also in the admin dashboard, add this line in wp-config.php file

define('HMW_ALWAYS_CHANGE_PATHS', true);

Save the settings in Hide My WP Ghost and the WordPress paths will be changed in admin backend area.

How To Remove The HMW Rewrite Rules From WP Definition In .htaccess?

By default, Hide My WP Ghost adds the rewrite rules in 2 places in .htaccess to avoid errors when other plugins are deleting the rules from .htaccess.

If you want to have the Hide My WP Ghost rewrite rules only inside the #BEGIN HMWP_RULES … #END HMWP_RULES add this line in the wp-config.php file.

define( 'HMW_RULES_IN_WP_RULES', false );

Save the settings in Hide My WP > Change Paths and the plugin will remove the rewrite rules from WordPress definition #BEGIN WordPress …. #END WordPress

Why The New Admin Path Is Redirected To Front Page?

By default, when you set Hide My WP Ghost plugin in Ghost Mode, you can login only with the new login path.

To activate the option to access the new admin path and to be redirected to the new login path, do this:

Switch OFF the option Hide My WP > Change Paths > Admin Security > Hide the New Admin Path

Once you switch off the option and save the settings, when you access the new admin path, it will redirect to the new login path.
