DW ReWrite creates 3 rewrite rules that will allow users to login to WordPress and access the WP Dashboard using a simple, pretty URLs. To login, you would give users "example.com/login" rather than "example.com/wp-login.php". To access the Dashboard, users would use "example.com/admin" rather than "example.com/wp-admin". To register, users would enter "example.com/register" instead of "example.com/wp-login.php?action=register". (If registration is turned off, users will simply get a message saying "User registration is currently not allowed.").

This is what is called a Pretty URL. It takes advantage of the WordPress Rewrite API. The WP default links will still work, but having pretty URLs is much better for you, your website users and customers.

I developed this plugin to so you don't need to edit your ".htaccess" file to add the edits into it yourself and risk breaking your website.
