Protect Login Page

This is a simple plugin that protects access to your WordPress website’s login page by intercepting the page request and requiring that a PIN number, up to 8 digits, be present in the URL. Without the proper PIN, no login form is displayed, just a simple message. This plugin will make it harder for hackers to get into your website.

Once activated, you will access your login page like this…

http://yourwebsite.com/wp-login.php?PIN=[your PIN goes here]

IMPORTANT – DO NOT use this plugin if you require login access other than the main WordPress login page, such as the WordPress mobile app.

Installation

To install, simply upload the plugin zip file to your WordPress website and activate it. Configure the simple settings in the new menu that will appear in your Settings menu. Explanations of each feature accompany the inputs.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I log in once the PIN is set?

A: To log in, just add the PIN value to your WordPress login page URL, like so: http://mysite.com/wp-login.php?PIN=1234

Q: Do I have to add this PIN to the URL each time?

A: Yes, but if you set yourself a bookmark your life will be much easier.

Q: Why did you develop this plugin. Isn’t the login protection itself good enough.

A: Maybe, but I got tired of seeing all of the malicious login attempts in my server logs. I decided to come up with a way to stop this.

Q: What happens if I lose my PIN?

A: If you lose your PIN you will not be able to log into your website. Deactivate the plugin in the database (wp_options.eePLP_STATE = ‘OFF’) or rename the plugin’s folder in your files. You may also contact me for a rescue PIN.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I preview what my page will look like when shared on Facebook?

Use the page debugger tool here…

https://developers.facebook.com/tools/debug/sharing/

You can use this to adjust your page and then re-check it until it looks the way you want.

 

I’m not impressed. Why doesn’t the result look like it should?

Make sure you don’t have another plugin, like Jetpack, adding Open Graph tags too.

 

How can I force the link preview and/or image to be different from the page content?

Put a <div> tag at the top of the content area with your text and image within. Then add the CSS style display:none; to the <div>. Now the <div> won’t display on the page, but the meta tags will use this content.

For example:

<div style=”diplay:none;”>
Sentence one. Sentence two. Sentence three.
<img src=”myimage.png” />
</div>

Begin page content…

WordPress Plugin – EE Contact Form

EE Contact Form is a simple yet solid email contact form system. This is not a custom form maker. There is a limited set of text input fields, which you may choose to show, require and change the default label.

There is also an option for including a file with the message, spam and word filtering options, and full control over who receives the mail, including CC and BCC capability. Extra effort has gone into reducing contact form spam and external tampering.

I’ve built this plugin primarily for my own use. Its straightforward setup, simple flexibility and difficulty for spambots to abuse makes me look good to my clients.

This website uses EE Contact Form. Try it out by sending me a message!

Styling over-rides are very simple as well and this plugin attempts to let your existing site’s styles do much of the work.
