WordPress Security – Add Authorization Code To Login Page With Stealth Login Page Plugin

The Stealth Login Page Plugin adds an authorization code field to your wp-login.php page. If anyone tries to login to your WordPress admin panel without entering the authorization code correctly, they are redirected to a website of your choosing.

While this isn’t comprehensive security for your WordPress site by any means, it will help guard against hackers, brute-force attacks, and bots.

To install the WordPress Stealth Login Page Plugin:

1. Login to your WordPress admin panel

2. Select Plugins, Add New from the menu on the left

3. Search for, install, and activate the Stealth Login Page plugin

4. Select Settings, Stealth Login Page from the menu on the left

Building Sitemaps For WordPress With Google XML Sitemaps Plugin

Sitemaps are very important for search engine optimization on any website. Simply put, they are a way to tell search engines about the pages included on your site. This helps search engines keep up with a list of all the pages of your website, including those that may not normally be discovered in their normal crawling process. There are many WordPress plugins that will create a sitemap for you, but I prefer to use Google XML Sitemaps. This plugin generates XML sitemaps for your WordPress site and even notifies Google, Bing, and Yahoo each time you create a new post. To setup Google XML Sitemaps for your WordPress site:

1. Login to your WordPress admin panel

2. Select Plugins, Add New from the menu on the left

3. Search for “Google XML Sitemaps” and install it

4. Once installed, go to Settings, XML Sitemaps in the menu on the left

5. This will take you to the settings page. If you don’t have a lot of knowledge about sitemaps and search engine optimization, just leave all the default settings and create the sitemap by using the link at the top of the page – “The sitemap wasn’t built yet. Click here to build it the first time.”

6. That’s it!  You will receive a confirmation that the sitemap was built and submitted to search engines.
