Plugin for tour dates / Change admin URL

Hey everyone,

I’m trying to build a TXP theme for a band – can anyone recommend me a simple plugin for managing tour dates?

And is there a way to change the admin url from /textpattern to /login or /admin?

Thanks in advance!

There are several options. There is the Multi-site installation option, simply creating a symbolic link is possible, so is using ModRewrite and there are always server’s virtualhosts.

Personally, I mostly just create a symbolic link by running the following in the shell (via SSH):

$ cd /path/to/site/index/containing/textpattern/dir
$ ln -s textpattern login

After that you can access Textpattern’s admin-side via a the symlink’s path. To prevent anyone getting lost in the old, real location, you can throw a stub .htaccess to the the /textpattern directory that redirects users accessing to the directory to correct location. Along the lines of:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
	RewriteEngine On
	RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} /textpattern/
	RewriteRule ^(.*) /app/$1 [R]
</ifModule>
