WordPress 3.6 Beta 1

Have you ever had your WordPress site get stuck in maintenance mode? Did you accidentally close a window while updating a plugin of theme?

Do you see a message that says “Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.”?

This means you are in maintenance mode. To get out of maintenance mode is actually extremely easy.

The problem we’re trying to solve is that we don’t want our client to have to remember that the URL to edit their site is /wp-admin or /wp-login.

We want our client to be able to go to a simple URL such as /login. How do we do that?

First, we need to open .htaccess. If you’re not comfortable working within .htaccess we would not suggest going forward. If you are comfortable and know where to find it then it’s as simple as one line of code.

A reader recently commented on our How to Name Your WordPress Theme post asking how to hide the theme information from being seen when someone looks at your site info.

It is actually a pretty simple fix that can be done in less than two minutes.

All you need to do is open up your theme’s function.php file.

Add the line of code below and your theme information will no longer show when someone views your site information in their browser.

remove_action(‘wp_head’, ‘wp_generator’);

WordPress does give you this option but hides it from the default custom menu screen.
