Admin Post Reminder

Why Do I Need This Plugin?

Previously, I wrote about the dangers of publishing blog posts from your admin account. If you haven’t read it yet, go ahead; I’ll wait for you.

Basically, if you post from your admin account, anyone can easily figure out your admin username. It’s best to post to your blog from an editor account.

But even if you have a separate editor account setup just for writing posts, sometimes you do have to log in as the admin to change settings, use certain plugins, etc.

It’s easy to forget which account you’re using at any given time–especially if you have your admin display name set to something other than ‘Admin’.

In order to help you keep your admin username a secret, I’m releasing a new WordPress security plugin: Admin Post Reminder.


Admin Post Reminder

What Admin Post Reminder does is simple–it checks to see if the user that’s logged in is the admin. If the user is an admin, an alert shows at the top of the page, reminding the user not to publish any posts while logged into this account.


Regular logged in users will not see any reminder message.
