Данный плагин не позволяет зайти в администраторскую часть до тех пор, пока не будет верно указана пара ключ=значение. Плагин является расширенной версией plg_backendtoken.

Главная идея плагина - предотвратить вход в администраторскую панель с использованием стандартных методов и ссылок. Это скроет администраторскую часть сайта от посторонних глаз.

It protects hackers from reaching the administrative login to enter the backend of your site.

Ease of use

Install it, select a key and a value and use them in the URL for accessing the backend login. The developers give an example in the plugin.


The webpage explains how it works. It has links for reporting issues and getting the latest version.


Documentation is pretty clear.

I used this to: I used an earlier version of this after my website was taken down because crackers were hammering on the backend login of my site. It is quick to install, easy to use and just works.

It works absolutely fine and thanks for a good extension and keeping it free :)

I use this on all my sites Joomla 2.5 and 3.0 I highly recommend this extension. Easy to use and it works! My hack attempts dropped to almost zilch.

Looks good

Owner's reply: Please, feel free for using my repository on GitHub. It is always up.

Thank you!

I installed the plugin version for Joomla 1.5: it was the only one available I found for this version of Joomla. I spent 1 minute to configure it and it worked fine.

I recommend it!

This plugin does what it says.

Thank you
