A simple, but effective way of preventing people from breaking in to your Wordpress blog is to hide the login screen. You can do this by installing a plugin such as Stealth Login, which will create a specific URL or web address that you will use when logging in to your blog, or performing admin on your account. This means that there will be no link to login from the public pages of the blog. When you want to login, you will simply go to the custom URL that you have chosen and sign in as normal.
This plugin also protects your login page by preventing anyone from going directly to wp-login.php, which is the default setting for Wordpress. This plugin can prevent anyone from gaining unauthorized access to your site, even if they are able to guess your password, by hiding the login page from them. This can also prevent programs called bots from getting in to the blog through the wp-login.php file.The new login URL and options can be controlled through the settings panel.

Awesome tip. Completely forgot that this should be edited too when you’re going fo a real complete look. I wonder if we’ll start seeing more of these little additions in premium WP themes…
