Yesterday we posted an article in our Joomla website that applies to wordpress. 3 easy rules that over time will boost your visits and wordpress hits.
With the WordPress native Meta Widget users can register and login into your website. Unfortunately the widget backend as no options to remove your website RSS link, your website comments RSS link and the WordPress link. For a login / register widget all those links are overkill and they extend a sidebar menu that is supposed to be short.
There are several tutorials and forum posts regarding this issue, we will try to keep it simple and short, less reading same results.
There are several plugins that do the job but they actually put load and can create conflicts in your wordpress website.
“We find that the best, with less strain or website conflicts and most secure way of protecting your website is by restricting the admin access by means of IP and using server files instead of website plugins.”
