    It allows you to change the slug (wp-admin). For instance, instead of yourdomain.(xxx)/wp-admin you can make it //yourdomain.(xxx)/mysite. It's accessed in the permalink section.

    I accessed one of my sites yesterday and it worked fine. Haven't seen any news about it not working. I'll have to keep an eye on it.

    oh ok, got it now. Seems like this is for security, right? So hackers etc cannot find your admin section.

    What other plugins would you install?
    Not just for a blog, but if you were trying to run a regular looking website with WP, or ecommerce website, etc.

    Yes.

    Looks like Spoiltdiva beat me to it - and then some.

    Marketing plugins I use most often are WordPress SEO by Yoast, W3 Total Cache, and Broken Link Checker.

    Those others I'm not familiar with but a couple do look interesting.

    We always recommend to new WP users that they use WordFence for security and W3 cache to help improve the speed of their WordPress.

    I tried MPG and was pleasantly surprised with the result. Now I use it on each of my sites.
    For me now this is the number 1 way to get traffic and improve positions.
    You can easily boost your website with unique pages, posts, or custom entity posts in minutes with MPG. This page generator plugin can help you create and manage thousands of keyword-specific landing pages. With custom content bulk pages you can increase your chances of getting top-ranked by search engines.
