Custom Registration Link for WordPress

Custom Registration Link is a WordPress plugin by GabSoftware that lets you modify the registration link of your WordPress website. This will result in greatly reduced spam registrations. The default registration link is “wp-login.php?action=register” and is heavily targeted by spam-bots. This plugin will change this link to another one and make the old one invalid.

User agents who will try to access the normal registration link will be redirected to a page telling them that registration is disabled (wp-login.php?registration=disabled), in order to reduce spam registrations and with the potential benefit that learning spam-bots will not try next time as they will “think” that your website doesn’t accept registrations. Normal visitors will go to the new registration link.

The new link is customizable in your WordPress dashboard, and you are strongly advised to change the default value for something of your choice so that your website is unique.

Requires PHP 5 and WordPress 3.x
