    Regarding Any Theme:

    How can this little issue be resolved. ” WordPress in the Registration URL”

    I just noticed my address bar when logged out of admin viewing it from my potential site visitors point of view and saw the URL looked like this to Register on my site.

    This was noticed in the Dating Theme (I assume it would be the same for all others)

    ht tp://w ww.mywebsite.name/wp-login.php?action=register

    I obviously dont want visitors to see what platform I am using eg: WordPress! So how can this be resolved? Anybody know?

    😯

    I think if anyone wants to know what system your using they only need to look at your source code as WP is referenced all over.

    It maybe better to be more transparent to users rather than try and hide. I don’t think there is anything wrong with using WP as your core CMS.

    It’s more about how viewers (customers) are used to seeing it in ones country of origin! there’s noting wrong with it, however nobody does it in Australia. unless it’s by accident!

    Just looks strange to me personally as It’s not the normal here ! But certainly nothing wrong 🙂

    To be fair, Australia is usually at least a couple of years behind the rest of the world. 😉

    If you are very particular about changing it, you would want to try this tiny plugin.

    Rename wp-login.php

    Please back-up your data, before testing. I have tested it, and it works fine on wordpress 4.1, premiumpress responsive 8.1.

    Clive that is a very sweeping statement. One could say the same about all types of countries if you wanted to generalise.
