When do I need to use the login code?
Whenever anyone logs in to the website, they need to use their username and password as before, and also use this login code to gain access.
How do I set the code?
After to activate this plugin, go to Tools > MC Login Code and enter your desired code, 4 to 20 characters.
Do I need to set the code for every user?
No. there is one code for the website. Everyone who signs in must use that code.
What if I forget my login code?
Use a program like FileZilla or access the File Manager through your host’s CPanel.
Delete the “mc-login-code” folder from your plugins folder.
Log back in as admin. (There will now be no third field.) Reinstall the plugin.
What’s the purpose of this again?
Any bot that tries to guess username and password to get into your site will fail.
Even if they have the right username and password, they won’t have a login code.
